Re: New sound card project: AWE64 Legacy

darkpilot wrote on 2021-01-20, 13:35: But still there are tons of them now. Its just sad that no one have cloned AWE32 and AWE64 chips There isn't really a shortage of EMU800 chips either. I mean, I get your sensitivity but it's not a huge deal, really.

Re: New sound card project: AWE64 Legacy

I hardly can find any AWEs locally (have found only 3 during last few years ). And paying over $100 on ebay is too much for me (#thirdworldproblems :D). So I feel kinda sad when I see old card being used as donor to make the more expensive one. Simmconn was the other thing as the new version costs …

Re: SB16 issues

Lol my cheap multimeter broke and haven't replaced it yet. I'll try to find the machine with the other SB16 in. I wonder if the battery leakage might caused some damage... You should have mentioned battery damage earlier. Battery leakages tend to corrode power delivery lanes from the AT power …

Re: SB16 issues

First order of business would be to try that card in another PC. I have a suspicion that either ISA power delivery on your motherboard is damaged (corroded power rail from the power connector, bad caps, etc.) or some other device in the build (floppy with bad caps, etc.) is messing with the 12V rail …

Re: SB16 issues

These are jumpered. That is strange.. It sounds like the amp IC on both cards is misbehaving. Can you post photos? My 2290 had a TEA2025B IIRC which means it uses 12V. You may have filtering issues on your 12V line, or a device that is shorting it somehow. Can you try running the card without any …

Re: SB16 issues

Check out JP18 and JP19. Both JP18 and the third and fourth pins (counting from top to bottom) of JP19 have to be jumpered for the SPK out to work AFAIK. Like this: Copy code to clipboard 1 O 2 O 3 X X 4 X X 5 O 6 JP18 JP19

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
Such a huge time commitment. It's really impressive. Might I ask in which era you began playing computer RPGs? Secret of the Silver Blades was my first PC RPG. Or going back a touch further: the Phantasy Star games on the SMS. I'm not sure it's in the scope of this thread, but it would be …

Re: ESFM details

I recently compared ESFM vs. generic OPL3 in Siedler 2 (Settlers 2) and it seems to me that it supports ESFM because it sounds more brilliant and superior to my ears. https://youtu.be/Bpk3vkreSsA I'm also interested to know other games with ESFM support for more comparisons! Descent and Screamer do …
