Today I tried out my YMF744 card on my Windows 98SE PCIe rig with the Intel P965 chipset and the first thing I wanted to try out was MS-DOS compatibility. I was suprised that it worked out very well and worked with most games a threw at it. Much better compatibility than my Vortex AU8820. Usually Intel chipsets newer than the 800 series is a big no with DOS gaming and digitized sound.
I reserved IRQ5 in the BIOS.
Remember to use the VGA output of your graphic card for best DOS compatibility, using DVI screwed up graphics in some games and made the mouse not work in others.
Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.52GHz
Nvidia GeForce 7800 GTX
Games that worked:
Duke Nukem 3D
Grand Theft Auto
One Must Fall
Screamer (Works in low res. mode using the DOS/32A extender.)
Sim City 2000
Space Quest IV (CPU cache disabled for this one.)
Games that failed:
Jazz Jackrabbit ("Loader error (0025)", the game fails even when selecting no sound as long as DSDMA.EXE is loaded.)
