Hi, thanks for the photos! Your card looks well-built and has a true OPL3, by the way! 😀
Also thanks for the recording of GODS! It really sounds, uhm, "special".. 😉
I'm not sure what's the exact problem, though.
If I had to guess, I would say it is some kind of IRQ problem.
Or maybe the card is not 100% SB compatible and these games are just making use of uncommon features.
Like using strange block-sizes, DMA tricks or somehting along these lines.
In case of Prince of Persia, it could also be related to the IRQ setting.
That games is a true classic and expects the card at IRQ7.
As for GODS.. Well, I'm not so familiar with the game, ie. I haven't really played it so often.
It's not much, but here are a few ideas:
a) Configure the card to IRQ7, Port 220, DMA1.
Set the card to SB1.5 or SB2 (not Pro) compatibility, if possible.
b) Try to disable your LPT1 printer port.
Because it is usually on IRQ7, too.
c) Run NSSI and let it detect the sound card.
You can get it here: http://www.navsoft.cz/products.htm
Note: You may have to unload shells like Norton Commander (ncsmall) before running it,
because NSSI is a bit paranoid and mistankenly believes there's a memory-resident debugger active. 😁
Edit: Your card has got a crystal codec (cs4231-kl), just like the Gravis Ultrasound MAX!
So it is apparently Sound Blaster Pro 2 and also WSS compatible.
