This is a sound card I bought sometime in 1996. I think I got it to listen to DUKE3D and it was my first `wave table' card.
It has actually been in storage for about 10 years and wasn't detected by the PnP BIOS but did so after wiping the edge connector with some emery cloth. The mainboard is a BioStar MB8500TTD.
If you are curious about the 256x16 RAM chip plugged in, then I definitely remember taking it from an S3 video card and putting it there many years ago. This upgrades the card to 1/2 megabyte which is important for GUS emulation of something like that.
I have managed to get it working in Win98 and DOS and `second reality' plays back sound in GUS mode okay.
If anyone is interested in more information about this ugly looking card then I will gladly update this thread.
I used the drivers from driverguide but it's possible that some gravis drivers may also work? I can dump here how it works in DOS, although SB emulation appears very basic, 8 bit mono in fact...
thanks for reading, bye!
