BardBun wrote on Today, 15:24: Using a Midi-Sequencer for game music can be so much nicer and more organic due to how it allows perfect infinite looping of music and how it properly ends the songs with the last instruments being played rather just fading out while the song never ends. Precisely.

Re: Sound in some games but not others?

Should be moved to DOSBOX forum? Anyhow, If the mac build of Dosbox has the same configuration file structure, then it should have a [sblaster] section, which sets all the parameters and explains what they mean. Then for the game(s) you run inside Dosbox, you need to run the setup program (if exists …

or... or... get this, let the user decide if they want a "feature" update or not. afaik there is still no way to get security updates without feature updates in windows 10 Security updates are offered for a specific version for 18 months; after that, if you don't upgrade to a newer version (" …

Re: Let's talk about our hated trends

I evangelized the heck out of Windows 10 when it first came out. I had access to use the beta. When it came out, it was great. It was stable as a rock, it never crashed, the early updates were high quality - they even had a "Experience Portal" where you could submit bugs and issues and request …

Re: Dos games

in DOS
Hi and welcome to the forum. As far as I could find, "Soccer Management Simulator" is indeed a Windows 3.x game... You can run get Windows 3.x to run in DOSBOX, but it is not free software (Windows; not sure about this game itself), and VOGONS has a policy against supporting software not legally …

Re: Rebuilding my 2004 Doom 3 Machine

Other weird quirks are that the motherboard has 2 SATA controllers.  A VIA one, and a Promise one.  The sata disc drive is only successfully detected by the VIA sata controller, and the Intel SSD is only successfully detected by the Promise SATA controller.  Go figure. One advantage of Intel 478 …

Re: DOSBox Pure ?

Ahh, I thought it was a frontend of some sort.

A few weeks ago I helped a friend setup PSX emulation through RetroArch …

Re: Descent: no sound

And when you use these exact settings in Descent setup, you get no sound? Just to be certain - do you have other DOSBox games which you can test? Other applications on this computer have sound?
