Audio quality and noise will naturally be determined by the analogue stage of the motherboard. Board index All times are UTC. Trio 64 is better suited to Pentium I machines. I flermmed the plootash just like you asked. Many SB clone and genuine SB cards suffer from poor analogue design though and are noisy, have poor frequency response or pick up digital or power supply noise from the motherboard or other expansion cards in the PC.

The only possible negative is that the FM synthesizer built into it does sound different from the Yamaha OPL3, however this is personal preference whether it sounds bad or not. You might try a PCI video card.
VOGONS • View topic – Is the Crystal CS a pretty good sound card for DOS?
Maybe you don’t need drivers though, try some DOS games and see if they work! I’m focusing on the sound card for now Thanks in advance. Many SB clone and genuine SB cards suffer from poor analogue design though and are noisy, have poor frequency response or pick up digital or power supply noise from the motherboard or other expansion cards in the PC.
For some it’s fast, for some it’s slow. Would this be at least somewhat compatible with early-mid ’90s DOS games? Epic Pinball will quickly reveal if the sound channels are swapped and if the soundcard has a poor anti-aliasing filter.
Sorry Kisai, but saying that avoiding all soundcards that are not Creative Labs soundcards is utter nonsense. The music will be scratchy and have a “ringing” sound to it if the anti-aliasing filter is badly designed vs4236b if the channels are swapped, pressing the left shift key will play the flipper sound on the right channel and vice-versa.
Gerwin has a few posts on the CSx chipset, look them up for a better understanding of the chipset and driver downloads for crtstal.
Crystal CS4236B-104 with ALSA?
Trio 64 is better suited to Pentium I machines. I do understand crysta the sound card isn’t the only concern for compatibility.
But obviously not all sound cards will be compatible with every DOS game. Board cs4236n All times are UTC. Obviously choose SB-Pro as the soundcard in the setup menu Dune 2 is also a good test for the anti-aliasing filter, it also has a “ringing” sound to the voice if the anti-aliasing filter is badly designed.
It would certainly work for your machine, but I think it would be overkill. I flermmed the plootash just like you asked. Discussion about old PC hardware.
Windows 95 Sound driver for Crystal CSB in Equium
I always stay away from them when I plan to do DOS stuff. This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA.
Return to General Old Hardware. This forum is for DOS games on modern systems.

There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. In what to one race is no time at all, another race can rise and fall If it’s been well designed, the sound quality will be excellent and noise levels very low. Having had everything from the Tandy to modern systems, I’d probably suggest avoiding all sound cards that are not the Creative Labs cards or the GUS until you get to PCI sound cards, by which all PCI soundcards are terrible for DOS, if you even have a way to enable them under DOS, it typically consumes memory and then getting the game to work is difficult.
All hail the Great Capacitor Brand Finder.
Audio quality and noise will naturally be determined by the analogue stage of the motherboard. Users browsing this forum: I did notice that the Dell has integrated sound, though, and some quick searching shows that it uses a Crystal CS sound card.
