Aureal MX300 AU8830 Question MS_DOS

Postby RaVeN-05 » 2018-2-08 @ 15:58

I found that aureal setup adds
LH AU***.COM to autoexec.bat
I added SETBLASTER variable
and its 220 irq7 dma3
can i change it to more compatible irq5 dma1?

also i can't make MIDI work from pure dos, what settings i should use?

another annoying thing

when i run some games from windows (in pif file there setting to unload windows and go to pure dos)
i see everytime loads dos aureal driver
LH AU***.COM

and after i quit game i except to see
Windows is now restarting... and loads windows

but instead my computer is restarting fully (reboot) like i press reset

can i use two audio cards
this one (for Win98) + Sound Blaster ISA (for better dos compatibility, for dos games , on dos only environment )
if mother board contains two audio cards at same time what happens?
how it work?
do i need to plug jack to another output, or i can keep jack on one sound card and other sound card will send sound to another sound card,
sorry noobish question =)

Yes.
You may have resource conflicts, but this can be managed by appropriate resource selection and/or hardware profiles. You can select your choice of I/O in Windows sound settings. The outputs will either have to be daisy chained (from card to card), switched, or connected through a mixer.
