I am currently using an ESS1688F ISA soundcard on my DOS/win98 machine. It's nothing spectacular, it seems to do the job. However, I recently fixed my SB16 CT2950. It has the two well-known SB16 bugs, so...there's that. The games I play the most are FPS ones, from Wolf3D to Quake, maybe pinball dreams games too, lemmings, the incredible machine, LucasArts adventure games (Full Throttle, Sam and Max hit the road, The Dig, Loom, Monkey Island,...). My questions are:
- Am I missing something important in DOS by using the ESS instead of the SB16?
- what about Windows? anything important there?
- What do you think about it, would you continue using the ESS1688F, or replace it with the SB16?
