First post, by nemail
I have just kind of finished my new 386 build based on
no co-processor (yet)
16MB memory (4x4)
Conner 400MB HDD
Sound Blaster AWE64
Some Goldstar Gear Multi I/O card with IDE, Floppy, Parallel, Serial and Gameport
Some Quad speed CD ROM drive
In a decent case with turbo button
Speedsys is showing decent results but The Lion King for example runs very slow, even with the Turbo button pressed (which makes it faster, but still too slow).
The Lost Vikings runs well but has no sound, no matter which Sound card I choose in the games setup.
And I'm not able to get my CD ROM drive working, the best I was able to achieve by trying various drivers in config.sys with shcdx33 instead of mscdex is that it got a letter assigned but whenever I tried to access a CD, it reports an (interrupt) error.
may the goldstar i/o card incompatible with cd drives? or is it the bios (it has no option of selecting a cd drive)?
speedsys and also one of the drivers i've tried detects the cd drive...
thanks all for your replies!
