What need is there for a Gravis Ultrasound in a retro system if you have DOSBox? I believ that there is not much need for the card if your DOSBox system is fast enough to handle any VGA game without difficulty. For true SVGA & VESA games (which do not include tweaked VGA games like Extreme Pinball), whose system requirements for smooth gameplay in DOSBox can bring the mightiest of modern systems to its knees. I suggest that by the time that SVGA resolutions were becoming the norm, the Ultrasound's support wasn't what it used to be. Also, companies simply supported it as an 8/16-bit DAC and for sample-based general midi when not being shoehorned into an emulated OPL.
