Re: Process Explorer or Similar for Win 3.x

in Milliways
On a side note, there is a cool util umbinfo.com (In german, I think) which only shows the UMB, obviously. If it did all memory in DOS that would be great. MSD, seems to only good for dos, no windows version. It sounds like you'd be interested in the DOS MEM /C command then, but as already …

Re: My SiS 730S Duron system!

Modified SNDINIT.EXE myself and GM is now working :D It searches for PCI ID 1039:0630, I changed it to 1039:0631. Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I'm confused. I don't see a 0631 device ID listed in http://pci-ids.ucw.cz/read/PC/1039 (although I suppose that doesn't guarantee it doesn't exist …

Re: ForteMedia FM801 FM Synthesis

I just added my own complete lspci -nn output in my thread here , but here is the interesting part: 00:07.0 Multimedia audio controller [0401]: Fortemedia, Inc Xwave QS3000A [FM801] [1319:0801] (rev a0) 00:07.1 Input device controller [0980]: Fortemedia, Inc Xwave QS3000A [FM801] [1319:0801] (rev a0 …

Re: Experience with "3DS801A" FM801 clone in DOS

The command-line parsing in CFG801.EXE is pretty bad. It seems that the only way you can get usage information from it is if you pass a valid /t option followed by an invalid option, e.g. "/t /?". Here is complete lspci -nn output showing both the 3DS801A card and the system I tested it in: 00:00.0 …

Re: Experience with "3DS801A" FM801 clone in DOS

Adding the /T parameter to the CFG801.EXE command line causes it to indicate what PCI chipset it detected. In my case it said "Can't find PCI Chipset Device!" and that it was defaulting to legacy 2 mode, whereas as noted above it turned out that legacy 1 mode was better for me. Actually I used /t ( …

Re: ForteMedia FM801 FM Synthesis

The revision number of the chip would be interesting too, as CFG801.EXE uses this in some cases, specifically it seems to have some special cases for device ID 0x0801 revision 0xA0. I haven't checked mine yet. Under Linux, lspci -nn will show both the device ID and revision. I think there are DOS …

Re: ForteMedia FM801 FM Synthesis

Maybe someone who can do it and is interested will pick up on it. I'll see what I can do. Are you able to let me know what PCI device ID is reported for your card, and also what AC'97 codec chip is on it (which you probably need to determine by visual inspection)? I'm interested in the PCI ID …

Re: Doom I/II - More than 4 Lan players?

in DOS
I'm not an expert in these things but I had a look and found a source port which supports up to 32 players and can be compiled with IPX support (it uses TCP/IP by default): http://doomlegacy.sourceforge.net/docs/legacy.html It looks significantly different from the original DOOM though.

Re: ForteMedia FM801 FM Synthesis

The one and only issue I have with this card in DOS is that it does not seem to have a mixer and the Line In is muted by default, so using it with an external Synth and mixing that to the audio out is impossible to do on the card itself. If anyone knows how to change mixer settings for FM801 in DOS …

Experience with "3DS801A" FM801 clone in DOS

Here are my experiences with Sound Blaster emulation in DOS with some kind of generic FM801 clone I picked up in case they are useful to anyone else. I tested this on an MSI "PM8M-V H"/"MS-7104 ver 3.0" motherboard with a VIA P4M800 + VT8237R Plus chipset. The BIOS offered no way to explicitly …
