Re: Running two soundcards in one PC

Yes, this question gets asked often for various permutations of sound cards. You could just not run the hardware wizard to detect the ISA card in Win98, or disable it in the device manager. You might also be able to only make the OPL2 active in Win98 and then get the games to use that instead of the …

Re: Did you create maps for games?

in Milliways
I spent quite a lot of time building Duke3D maps, eventually I even bought a physical book on it (which I've still got). It was great that the game came with its tools on the cd: the map editor, tools to mess with the art, etc. I also made mods for myself (such as, of course, importing Doom sprites …

Re: CF Card working in Windows 10.....

I haven't dealt with this issue myself but I believe that the fact that you're using OnTrack is your problem. See https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=58192 Another option is to use an XT-IDE bios so you don't need drive overlay software, much info to be found on Vogons. CAn someone please please …

Re: Win 95 woes

An easier workaround, though, is to use your current Windows installation to copy the contents of your OSR2 cd to somewhere on your hard drive. Then restart into DOS mode and run the installer from that location. I think the same. Win 9x Setup has that bad habbit of forgetting to integrate a CD-ROM …

Re: PAS16: to sound blaster or not to soundblaster

Sorry for the noob question, but I'm just wondering about this. What happens if you have two sound cards both with an OPL3 chip installed? E.g. A Pro Audio Spectrum 16 (disable the sound blaster on driver load) and an actual sound blaster 16 with true OPL3. The PAS16 also has an OPL3. I guess the …

Re: Win 95 woes

Your Win95 cd is probably/certainly not bootable. That has nothing to do with the OS already on the machine, that has to do with the disk itself, and whether your hardware supports booting from cd (probably not). You need a boot disk with cd support, I don't know what kind of boot disk you're using …

Re: PAS16: to sound blaster or not to soundblaster

So then the Aztech would be a good choice as well, given its genuine opl3? Or does that one have problems with midi as well as the SB cards? No it works fine in all regards, it just only supports WSS for 16-bit audio. That's why I suggested adding the SB32 and using that only for digital audio (and …
