Does anyone know the details of which ethernet frame types low-level networking VDMSound provides?
I definitely know it supports IPX frame type ethernet II, because I can play Blood and that uses ethernet II (found out using native LAN under XP).
To play DOS games under XP I have always used VDMSound w/ low-level networking, otherwise the game can't detect/see my IPX network card.
I use VDMSound on XP on a native LAN.. and couldn't get Syndicate Wars or C&C DOS to detect each other (under all frame types)... but Blood works only under Ethernet II.
So my assumption is, VDMSound doesn't pick up frame types ethernet 802.2/3, etc?
Does someone know VDMSound source code well? to confirm this assumption?
