I just downloaded the Wave “eapci2m. The board consists only of a very small software-driven audio chip one of the following: I have downloaded the dos drivers from the vogons drivers page, but they simply don’t work for me.

This card is supposed to be compatible. Is this your card?: Removed drivers in Safe-Mode, rebooted, cancelled the “Found Hardware” wizard, “installed” what is apparently the driver, rebooted and still nothing. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites.

MSFN is made available via donations, subscriptions and advertising revenue. When paired with a capable codecsuch as the AK pre-AC’97the ES supported the then-latest in 3D audio positioning through 4-speaker surround sound.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Therefore, it was practical to configure DOS games to utilize the General MIDI synthesizer and digital sound effects, whenever possible, for better sound quality. Several patch set choices are available, varying in size and instrument quality 2, 4, or 8 MB. Unfortunately, I used this guide before. Register a new account.
