As far I know NOLFB.COM only fix DOS VESA Bios Extension 2.0 applications that have a fallback code You can disable LFB without fallback requirement. For example, UniVBE has command to disable LFB without touching anything else. I have forget than none of UniVBE versions are support 3Dfx cores. I …

Probably fixable by disabling LFB. I don't think so. As far I know NOLFB.COM only fix DOS VESA Bios Extension 2.0 applications that have a fallback code that supports the segmented video modes for VESA Bios Extension 1.2 (linear framebuffer was defined first in the VESA Bios Extension 2.0, so this …

Hey, gona, I want to quickly add a report from myself (Voodoo3 owner) and an owner of a Voodoo5 I know. Pinball Illusions is unplayable on any Voodoo 3-5 in either SVGA mode. The graphics are scrambled and only show up at the top of the screen (both on CRT and LCD). My S3 VirgeDX, Trident 9440, …

Re: Aladdin (DOS) music - SB16 vs. SBPro vs. WSS

Detection aside, the stereo PCM playback method used by the Sound Blaster Pro isn't supported by, or compatible with, the SB16. Thank you. Here are a couple of FLAC recordings from my CT3980 for comparison, using an optimized mixer configuration: http://www.symphoniae.com/misc/vogons/aladdin_title_ …

Re: Aladdin (DOS) music - SB16 vs. SBPro vs. WSS

Something is wrong with DSMI's SB16 detection routine in Aladdin. I can't speculate as to what. Here's a workaround config file though, concerning a SB16 configured with IRQ5 and high-DMA channel 5. (Byte 0x25 is the IRQ, and byte 0x26 is the DMA channel, if your SB16 is configured otherwise.) …

Very interesting! Thanks for testing this, the PAS16 music sounds excellent to me. I wonder why the developers did such a poor job with the SB16 option, when all the other cards deliver proper stereo music. You are welcome. Yes, interesting why only SB16 is poor mono. Might the 16-bit Sound Blaster …

I have found my Media Vision Pro Audio Spectrum 16 card so I have tested it too with Aladdin by set the "Pro Audio Spectrum 16". It is stereo, and sounds better than SB Pro2, it is close to WSS. Filename Aladdin_PAS16_-_on_-_PAS16.ogg File size 1.1 MiB Downloads 15 downloads

Re: Aladdin (DOS) music - SB16 vs. SBPro vs. WSS

I have genuine SB Pro 2 (CT1600 Rev08) and SB16 (CT2230 Rev02) and I confirm that the SB16 is not fully SB Pro compatible. I have set the Aladdin to SB Pro and this on CT1600 sound in stereo: Aladdin_SB_Pro_-_on_-_SB_Pro2_CT1600_rev08.ogg I have switched the card to the CT2230 and I have used an old …
