I'll make fuzz about it when there actually is something tangible, and it'll take a while longer to achieve 🤣

Wherever your ideas take you, I am certain there will be people interested . I wish you the best of luck in both the design phase and eventual production . I hope to be among those lucky enough to acquire one of your sound cards, though I am running out of potential PCs to install them in (I should be able to fix that easily enough in the next few months).

Cheers!

This is probably neither here nor there but I've noticed that SETYMF doesn't configure the MPU401 on my Labway YMF718 (Audician) card in a way that some games can use it. It works with a most games, but Nascar and Descent 2 claim that they can't find it. I've tried different ports (300, 330) and different IRQ / DMA configs, they just won't find it for some reason.

If I use SETUPSA or unisound with the same card then those games work fine - I also tried another generic YMF719 based card and it was the same deal.

I'm not complaining, just thought it might be of interest!

Life? Don't talk to me about life.

Thänk you for the report, I will have to investigate.

The FPGA card will take year(s) to materialize, there will be plenty of time to get new computers 🤣. I don't have any intention of having limited amount of stuff available but sometimes life and/or wallet set limits. Lack of ancient parts will help a lot because i won't need to dig some chinese sources to get anything but just place an order at some big distributor and not have to worry one more bit, and everything necessary arrives a week later, ready for assembly.

Just stumbled upon this, can I buy this card? And how much? Building a Socket 4 Overdrive soon and need something to go with the Aureal Vortex I plan on using.

The card cannot be bought yet, there are some unrelated things still in the way of things. Cost will be something near 100€

At least that's more affordable than Orpheus. It'll be up to a month anyway

Yes, just like with almost every other sound card that has gameport that has no extra MIDI connectors. I have a gameport MIDI cable that has extra DB15 connector for connecting a gamepad/joystick in addition to two DINs.

I wasn't sure if you'd done something like the Orpheus with a separate jack.

The reason I ask is I have MIDI breakout cables with a joystick pass through and they've not bothered soldering them. So if I'm going to buy your wonderful card for my 386, and it had a separate MIDI out I could be lazy and not do it!
