Edit: Just ordered a pair, 10$, coming from Singapore. Awesome.

DonutKing wrote:Anyway, if you want the flaky CT1350 you can have it, but it doesn't have the SAA1099P chips, and I may not have a GAL for it either - depending on whether or not I sell them all on amibay. (although if there's enough interest I will order some more)

DonutKing wrote:Yep yours looks the same as the troublesome card. I can only presume his card is faulty.
I've noticed that some CT1350 cards have the DMACTL jumper and some lack it. I assume the cards that lack this jumper have permanently disabled DMA sharing... although this shouldn't be relevant to the CMS chipset.

BOTH my 1350s do not like the cms upgrade. I only tested cms and it is working fine BUT the SB part becomes dead the minute you install the GAL.
I am testing with alone in the dark, the card does not even get detected.
If you use a previous sb config and enter the game then all you get is sb sfx. FM is dead.
If you remove the gal the cards gets detected and sfx/music works but the 1099Ps make noises, one needs to remove them too.
Messing with the DMA sharing jumper makes no difference...
Either there is some other jumper(s) needed for the rev0 card or the original dumped chip code is not suitable for rev0 cards.
I am going to make more tests with jumpers 12/13... did them, they just disable sb and/or 8312 parts of the card...
Also tried with EOB3 sound setup, with cms chips it can see (or at least not complain) the SB part but it complains about the midi one (FM chosen) ...
made a thread on vintage computer forums HERE and pm'ed Chuck(G) , hopefully he'll see it and reply with some clues...
