Re: What's wrong with all these sound cards???

Ok, I'm back and I tested some games. After fixing all the video card nonsense I had (which I thought was sound card related), everything seemed to work fine. Sound now works in DOS games (under win 98) with sound blaster live SB0100. It's not perfect and it doesn't run on all games, but I expected …

Re: What's wrong with all these sound cards???

Note that he is trying to play on Win98, not pure DOS. Some of your sound issues might be speed related, your computer is quite fast and PoP and Keen are old games. I haven't tried the exact cards you have, but I have encountered opl/adlib music breaking on faster machines depening on the card and …

Re: What's wrong with all these sound cards???

See for yourself in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AZI07_qts8 Ok, so you mean the OPL emulation. The SBLive won't have great OPL emulation either, but I'm not sure if it'll be worse. I think that when I used a SBLive with Win98 I was mostly playing later DOS games that supported …

Re: What's wrong with all these sound cards???

If you're running games from Win98, the card's actual DOS compatibility doesn't really matter. What does matter is using vxd drivers, not wdm drivers, and how well those drivers work. An SBLive would be a good choice in theory for a Win98 card. What makes the sound quality of the Vibra so horrible? …

Re: What is your everyday driver ?

I'm loving the FrankenPS/2 I reckon cooling is going to be a problem putting a new rig in such an old case? It's fine - as you can see, I printed an adapter to fit a intake 140mm fan and there's enough frontal grille area. There's a 120mm exhaust. I'd rather have had a 140mm exhaust as well, but …

IBM PS/2 case but it holds an i7 4790k / GTX1070. The operator display is connected to an Arduino that is in turn connected to an internal USB header, I wrote a CoreTemp plugin to show CPU speed and temperature. Various 3D printed parts to attach fans, etc. Floppy drive also works, by means of an …

Re: AZ2316 v. ES1868F

IIRC, the AZT2320 used a licensed OPL3 core. I was never too enthused with having to stick with Intel ICA to allocate PnP resources, but better tools have just recently come available, so it's less of an issue. I recently tried to get an AZT2320 (MM PRO16III PNP) working in a very similar build ( …

Re: AZ2316 v. ES1868F

Seeing if the 2320 is cheaper is a good idea. In any case it's anecdotal but on my PC, which is a P3 (so significantly faster) I had more issues with the 2316 acting weird than with an ESS1869, and the ESS also behaved better in Windows (2316 sometimes muffles the end of sounds). The 2320 is the …
