I have the same problem. I have a Yamaha XG PCI card and I can't get it to work in DOS for the life of me. 🤣

Check me out at Transcendental Airwaves on Youtube! Also wtf, why are whoppers so good?!

but does that display the autoexec.bat for dos or the autoexec.bat for dos mode in windows ?

Unless you install Windows 9x over MS-DOS 6.22, there is only one autoexec.bat. (There is a dosstart.bat that is run if you "restart in MS-DOS mode" from within Windows.)

well then looks like your autoexec.bat is empty
thats why you have no sound in dos you need the enviroment variables for your card (aka the set blaster lines)

is there a program he could run to detect the irq/dma his card uses
ps: are there jumpers on the card and do you have the manual
the yamaha is hardware compatible with a sbpro without any drivers
appears to default to irq 5 dma 1

try adding this to your autoexec.bat
SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 T4 P330

There's the SETBLAST.EXE utility discussed at Sound Blaster types . I have attached a copy from the shareware episode of Blake Stone available at http://www.classicdosgames.com/game/Blake_Sto … ns_of_Gold.html .

Even on a laptop?

Looks like autoexec.bat is empty. You'll have to see if there's a SB emulator for your card (most cards of that era have one).

Depends on what video chip's in there and if it supports stretching (often found in the BIOS as an option, sometimes found in the video card's properties in windows, as well as sometimes in some OEM's configuration programs). You will want to probably play at your native res (1024x768), or native res / 2 (512x384) for best results with fitting

Some widescreen monitors have a setting that makes the image fill the whole screen. The picture will look horribly stretched as DOS games use 4:3 resolutions.
