Dear Warlord, any chance to get you time for writing a complete step-by-step guide on how to set up sound and music in DOS? Tomorrow I'll have Toshiba Satellite 2805-S401 with Yamaha YMF754B-R and S3 Savage/IX 8Mb, and such a guide will be a time saver!

P.s. at first I thought that https://www.philscomputerlab.com/ is dead, but looks like i have to use VPN to visit if from Russia 😮

Hi !
Okay i did that, everything seems okay under windows ! i could lunch Doom, DEscent, PRince of Persia, etc etc all ok !! with either GM music (very nice) or OPL3, and both with sounds, great !
But what about pure DOS games ? I still have irq problems on DOS mode, it doesn't seem there is a solution for this mode 🙁

Best regards

Okay on DOS i did what you told :

For Dos.
1. You have to use the modified 810/815 driver I'll link.
2. The SET Blaster Parameters. are SET BLASTER=A220 I7 D1 T4
3. I already configured this in the driver I am going to link here. But if you use the one off Phils computer page you need to change somethings to get it to work.
4. If you use some other driver than the one for here. Be advised that the one from phils has the wrong environmental variables set up in the batch file and you need to change that.
5. To configure you go "YMFIRQ 11" without quotes at the command prompt.
6. Type SETUPDS Change it to S-IRQ and then you can change it to I7 220 D1 ETC. With the driver I will link it should already be setup for you. Then save.
7. Then to run the driver you type Loadtsr at the command prompt that's all.

But it doesn't work. In SetupDS, with S-IRQ, it doesn't recognise any IRQ i select and can't save.

Best regards

Post screen shot of microsoft system information. And did you use the driver I linked and put it in C:\Yamaha

You can try inserting a fresh DS.INI and see if it lets you change things. That will undo the settings. in DSSETUP

In Windows, i installed the VXD driver and changed the legacy IRQ to 7.
