Hi, I am quite new into retro gaming and are hoping this old thread is still active. I just put an AWE32 PnP in my rig (K6-III+ 550 MHz, MS-5169,256 RAM, GeForce2-Ti).
I noticed issues which seem to be related to the sound card in some games. In Screamer 2 and also Screamer Rally, if I setup no sound card the game has only music no fx sound but runs without any issues. If I let the setup dedect my sound card automatically (soundblaster 16 mono, also tried ST and soundblaster etc.) I just have fx and no music. And the game has issues. At start in the menu or later at the start of a race it runs with only one frame per every 2 or 3 seconds. After maybe 30 seconds or something like that it runs normal. I have installed the AWE32 update driver and software from the cd. Windowes 98SE device manager stated no conflicts. So at this point I have no idea what causes this behaviour.
Newer games like Unreal, Blood 2 or even older games like Doom2 or Keen 4 have no issues at all. Does somebody have any advice how to dig deeper into this issue and maybe find a solution?
