Re: Pre-v14 WIP compat list

430VX PMMX233 Win95C AWE32. I believe i'm using S3 Trio64 drivers provided by DirectX 6. I'm running this from Win95 (as I did then because I didn't use real-mode CD-ROM TSRs all that much to play from within DOS)

Desktop res is 800x600x16 and it's a 1MB Trio64 card

Re: noob question Sound Blaster 16 dos6.22/w3.11

Run the SB16 installation disks from dos starting from the first floppy and point it to your Windows folder when it asks. Then the next time you start Windows 3.1 it should immediately set up the card and add program groups.

Re: v14 compatibility & bug list (WIP)

Re: AudioPCI impressions

Even with the Oct 99 driver I can only get Comache3 setup to mess up its sound by changing the sample rate option and testing. It'll crackle at 22khz, but also 11khz when you go up from 5khz. Backing out of the menu and going back in and testing doesn't crackle. it's also possibly real behavior i'd ...

Re: Pre-v14 WIP compat list

I don't mind the merge.

Everything's a 430VX PMMX233 160mb w/ S3 Trio64 unless otherwise specified. I try to test two configs with W98SE SBPCI/V2 and W95C AWE32/VG variations. Single Voodoo2 only as I never had a SLI setup.

Crackle's gone but there's some sound distortion. It's present on both non-WDM and WDM drivers and lowering the wave sound volume doesn't seem to fix it.

Plantronics ColorPlus (possibly others) affected by CGA colors setting

As Plantronics isn't configurable (yet) the way to turn off the CGA color settings (mono etc) isn't available. This can happen from loading a CGA machine in another config that has a mono colors setting and then loading a config with Plantronics ColorPlus configured.

Re: [BUG] VGAPaint 386 doesn't like VESA modes and crashes!

I get the hang on the same mode on all the Cirruses at least, on the Trio64 (which DOSBox's default is based on) and on interpreter so it doesn't seem to be Trident-specific.

Re: [REQUEST] CD-ROM speed

The appropriate whirring noises would also have to be emulated. Don't know if there can be an organized effort to sample the hardware we have for sound, like getting a drive to record a cd/diskette being copied and going through the insert/eject cycle etc.

I recall around 93-94 this would smoothly draw from top down as the OS loads and would take a few seconds on a slow 486SX-33, in PCem it appears instantly even on 386SX VGA systems.
