If I’m not mistaken, Doom 95 is a Win95 port that uses DirectSound and does not actually access your sound card directly. Unlike Duke Nukem which is a proper DOS game.

What are your specs? What is your soundcard? Have you installed the DOS drivers for it? What resources does it use? Have you tried to run the test (e.g. diagnose.exe for Sound Blaster)?

My Telegram blog about retro hardware (in Russian)

Pentium 133, 32 MB RAM, S3 Trio64V+, Crystal 4232, Dreamblaster X2 and Roland MT-32
Pentium III 1000, 512 MB RAM, Voodoo 5 5500 AGP, SB Live 5.1, SB32 CT3930, Gravis Ultrasound Max rev2.1

The laptop is a Toshiba Tecra 730X CDT.

IIRC that Tecra used a CS4232 which is Windows Sound System compatible (and has a YMF262), so try the WSS sound options while running Windows?

(Manual's showing up blank fyi)

by the way, DOSBox is not for running Windows 9x

where are the wss options? do i need dos drivers for it?
btw the sound blaster works for the sound but not for the music, theres something that needs to be set up, i see that my sound card supports also the sound blaster pro,today ill try it and see what happens.
