Re: DOS CD-Rom issues

Tried that, nothing changed Could you post your config.sys and autoexec.bat? I'm guessing there needs to be some sound card driver or PnP setup loaded first to initialise the CDROM registers in the sound chip. So that's the autoexec.bat and config.sys connected to CDROM and that soundcard : [ …

Re: DOS CD-Rom issues

I'm not familiar with the stock drivers for that card. However UNISOUND should support it. https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=72553 Note that the readme says Anyway as this tool is launched after config.sys, if you want CD-ROM support you'll have to load CD driver (like vide-cdd.sys) with device …

Re: SOFTMPU - MPU-401 Not Detected (Roland SC88)

in SoftMPU
Well you can always use a SB16 or similar card that has a normal UART MPU-401 interface so that the SC-88 will work fine with GM/GS games and use softmpu for mt-32 gaming like you do now. Is the Soundblaster Pro 2.0 any different from an SB16 in that respect? (normal UART MPU-401 interface?) It has …

Re: What game series did you stop getting and why?

in Milliways
Fallout lost me with 3. Which is to say, I thought 3 was ok . It seemed like it was trying to live up to the Fallout aesthetic of demented cynicism and nihilistic humor.

Re: What game series did you stop getting and why?

in Milliways

Re: Determining how much to spend on this hobby

in Milliways
I could see spending quite a lot on retro parts if your personal philosophy is they give you as much enjoyment as newer PC parts, or as another hobby. However, I just don't like spending a lot on old computer stuff, some of which is really expensive but not that much better than a cheaper part. …

Re: win98 MS Network Client in pure DOS mode

For example, I have a sound card which the Windows drivers prevent from working after restarting to Dos. After directly booting into Dos the card works fine. Care to elaborate..? Which card? Does it have DOS drivers? Aztech 2320. The built-in Win98SE drivers prevent the card from working in DOS. I …

Re: win98 MS Network Client in pure DOS mode

It does happen that Windows drivers change the state of hardware in such a way that the behavior is influenced even after restarting into Dos mode. For example, I have a sound card which the Windows drivers prevent from working after restarting to Dos. After directly booting into Dos the card works …
