These days, I reused my old EP-8KTA3PRO motherboard, with a Sound Blaster 16 (Actually it's a Vibra 16 based CT3110). Everything works fine as it used to but I still have one problem: to disable the non-working MPU-401 port. (Probably I need an real external synth to make it work, which is now hard to find in the place where I live).
The non-working MPU-401 caused me some problems with sounds, especially when playing a DOS game made by Wiering Software, I need to use a parameter to force it use Adlib, or I won't hear a sound unless I'm running it under Windows. Even SBMPU401 doesn't seem to help.
Creative's own apps won't work as a working MPU-401 port setting is mandatory when checking the card using DIAGNOSE, and setting the BLASTER variable without Pxxx parameter doesn't help either.
Can you help me about this, or have anyone already posted this problem before?
