Re: General MIDI and AWE64 issues

AWEUTIL's MPU-401 emulation for the EMU8K only works with real mode games without relying on any third-party utility. AWEUTIL's documentation confirms this. Why can't DOS? Edit by Dominus *removed confrontational writing*: see this thread on how to do it nowadays https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic. …

Re: What to do with my AWE64 Gold?

the AWE64 is limited to SBK soundfonts and can only use them on older real-mode games. They won't work with later protected mode games such as Doom and Duke3D. Edit by Dominus to get rid of the personal attacks: use this new utility and it works after all https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=62 …

Re: DOS32AWE - DOS/4G compatible DOS Extender with Sound Blaster AWEUTIL MIDI synthesizer support for Protected mode,V

I'd suggest you to use initially only the default sound fonts for troubleshooting. They should sound especially the GM one like the default AWE32 support in games and they load almost instantly. Then you can focus on the exact sound font that causes problem. Offtopic -- your machines are quite slow …

Re: DOS32AWE - DOS/4G compatible DOS Extender with Sound Blaster AWEUTIL MIDI synthesizer support for Protected mode,V

Likely a completely different issue. Which model of the AWE card are you using and how many amount of RAM it has installed? Does loading SoundFonts elsewhere (such as using SBK or SF2 on Windows 9x) works fine on that AWE card? I have two cards that I have tested in two different systems. SB32 PNP …

Re: Partially dead CT2700

Assuming the card-in-question lacks an ASP/CSP chip, are the IFSD and APSD jumpers appropriately closed? Nice catch! Thanks! I didn't consider that a possibility since the jumper pins for those settings are missing - but so is the ASP/CSP chip... I quickly jumpered the vias with solder blobs and …

Re: Partially dead CT2700

First try on another motherboard with Creative's DIAGNOSE utility and then make conclusions that you SB is faulty which I highly doubt. Yes, I tried DIAGNOSE as well - the digital sounds test results in the same symptoms. It's definitely a bad card, not my first rodeo. My instruction stresses on …
