hello all, i have noticed there is slight issue with playing with music set to soundblaster in dos 6.22
when you start game and get ea logo jumping thing and the screen fades to gray and the music should start but it hangs and doesn't and only way to quit is to reset the pc.
if have the music set to nothing it works no issues, just no music
i have found that when using windows for workgroups 3.11, plays everytime no problem, music, fx etc (when you have DMABufferSize set in system.ini)
i have using a soundblaster 16 CT2830 in my dos rig (full specs here - My Socket 3 Build (DOS/WIN311))
when i did use a soundblaster pro 2 CT1600, there no issues in dos with music but i stopped using it because it slowing down performance in windows and the pc overall because of the clock chip @14mhz
just wondering what is causing the issue in real dos and no issues in windows
