Dune 1 FDD and CD

Postby slx » 2018-11-13 @ 11:55

The FDD version of Dune game uses the same sound device for music and sound.
Adlib music card
Adlib Gold
Sound Blaster (music+sound)
Roland MT-32 (LAPCI Midi card)

but the CD version let you to use different sound and music devices.
CD version music:
Adlib music card
Adlib Gold
Sound Blaster (=Adlib music)
Sound Blaster Pro
Roland MT-32 (LAPCI Midi card)
CD version sound:
Sound Blaster
Sound Blaster Pro

If you use MT-32 there are no digitized sound effects in the FDD version at all (because it uses the MT32 only).

Is there any way to use the CD sound system in the FDD version? Can combinate these two versions sound systems?

I didn't find the topic about this subject at vogons!
I think the graphics is much better in the fdd version. The flight animation and the hand drawn backgrounds are much better then the rendered pictures.
