Re: Roland SC-88 MIDI synth and Dosbox-x

_Rob wrote on 2021-12-27, 17:33: Using the "mixer" command, before you start the game allows you to set the volume levels. Use "mixer /?" for the options. Thanks, I'll look into that later. Is this the preferred way to do it, or should I be controlling comparative volume levels in Windows?

Re: Roland SC-88 MIDI synth and Dosbox-x

Now if there was a way to control the MIDI and ADLIB volumes at the same time, that would be sweet. You generally aren't using MIDI and Adlib at the same time. Adlib is generally used for music, though some older games that only had Adlib support would use it for some sound effects. You might be …

Re: Roland SC-88 MIDI synth and Dosbox-x

After you enter those setting in the dosbox.conf file you then need to manually configure the game to use General MIDI from each game's setup program. SCUMMVM works completely differently than DOSBox. It replaces the game's engine, while DOSBox gives you a virtual DOS environment to run the …

Re: Roland SC-88 MIDI synth and Dosbox-x

https://dosbox-x.com/wiki/Guide%3ASetting-up-MIDI-in-DOSBox%E2%80%90X Try this, I'm not sure on the mididevice vs midiconfig in DOSBox-X. [midi] mpu401 = uart mpubase = 330 mididevice = win32 midiconfig = 1 samplerate = 44100 mpuirq = 9 Thanks for your help, unfortunately this doesn't work in …

Re: Roland SC-88 MIDI synth and Dosbox-x

Could you post the output of /listmidi, and the contents of your dosbox cfg? mixer /listmidi MIDI handler: win32 0 - "Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth" 1 - "mio" [midi] mpu401 = none mpubase = 0 mididevice = default midiconfig = 1 samplerate = 44100 mpuirq = -1 mt32.romdir = mt32.model = auto mt32. …

Roland SC-88 MIDI synth and Dosbox-x

I ahve a Roland SC-88 that I loop into my speakers with a MIO USB to MIDI interface. This works perfectly to play games like Day of the Tentacle through ScummVM when the audio is configured on a per game basis. When I try to do the same on Dosbox or Dosbox-X I can't get the synth to play MIDI. I've …

Looking for MAC Name That Guitarist game

Not sure if this is allowed here, but I'll give it a go regardless. I remember playing a game called "Name that Guitarist" on a Mac sometime around 1990. I'm nearly certain it was a Hypercard game and was actually released in 1988. Not sure if it progressed past shareware, but it was a very quick …

Re: Windows 98 veeeeeeery slow!

Well friends, I don't know if it was enabling the L1 and L2 cache or what, but even after installing most of the SP3, it's lightning fast. And I have LAN, Tape Drive, and USB all working. IDK, but it works! Only thing is now with those BIOS changes I can't seem to boot a cd/dvd anymore. Is that …

Re: Windows 98 veeeeeeery slow!

Turning off PnP is what caused it to refind all the drivers. I would leave it on, letting the BIOS handle IRQ steering unless it creates conflicts. You should reinstall the chipset driver after you turn it off (or better yet, reinstall Windows, as it hates hardware changes). Also get yourself some …

Re: Windows 98 veeeeeeery slow!

Turns out that CD drive was on its way out. I was unable to boot a Ubuntu Live CD from the drive in any way. I replaced the CD drive with a Sony DVD drive and everything booted up properly. I'm going to leave this drive installed and see if it's any more robust with transfers. Considering I'm …

Re: Windows 98 veeeeeeery slow!

For future installs, boot off a boot disk and then set up the HDD, and copy the files from the Win98 CDROM into a directory on the HDD and install from the HDD. I went through a cycle of multiple installations trying to get a combination of multi soundcards working correctly. I used an SD to IDE …

Re: Windows 98 veeeeeeery slow!

Shouldn't take that long. Just look for something like "1 pass complete with no errors" or something like that. Are you using an 80 wire IDE cable? Have you tried swapping IDE cables to see if one is bad? Do you know the CD drive is good? I ran a pass and it said it passed, no errors. Also my IDE …

Re: Windows 98 veeeeeeery slow!

Thanks guys, I'll try out memtest 4.3.7 today, though I remember these taking hours! I've put the original 256MB RAM stick back in and put the 1GB aside. What do I look for when Memtest is complete?? with respect to the HDDs, it's not the HDDs! I have 3 80GB drives here and this occurs on all 3 that …

Re: Windows 98 veeeeeeery slow!

But it still takes hours to install which is why I'd rather not do it again and again. This is pretty weird. Do you mean that the actual installation takes hours to finish or the entire process of re-installing drivers and such? If it's the former, something's seriously wrong here, on such a system …

Re: Windows 98 veeeeeeery slow!

Again, I would wipe the system and install 98SE clean and not upgrade from 95 to 98. But I guess that special tape software prevents that for some reason. Still I'd try and find a work around for it. What's the tape software called? Turning off PnP is what caused it to refind all the drivers. I …

Re: Windows 98 veeeeeeery slow!

That said, how would I know if DMA is enabled or not? Control Panel > System > Device Manager > Disk Drives > (Whatever device it is) > Properties > Settings DMA should be checked. If it isn't, check it. I also wouldn't bother with those unofficial patches, unless you're trying to make 98 your …

Re: Windows 98 veeeeeeery slow!

I'm perfectly able to get data off the tape, that's not the issue. I'm past that and I want to recreate a usable Win98SE box! That said, how would I know if DMA is enabled or not? I'm nearly certain I installed the 4in1 drivers from the VIA CD I had laying around. Everything except the USB drivers …

Windows 98 veeeeeeery slow!

Hi all, first time long time! I have found a lot of tape backups and decided to make a new Windows 98 PC with a tape drive to read them all. I finally got an proper installation but the issue is it's dog slow. Installing the unofficial SP3 takes hours. Here are the specs: P4PA Via Motherboard Intel …
