I’m focusing on the sound card for now Thanks in advance. Discussion about old PC hardware. I always stay away from them when I plan to do DOS stuff. This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA. Maybe you don’t need drivers though, try some DOS games and see if they work!

I do understand that the sound card isn’t the only concern for compatibility. This site hosts no abandonware. Sc4236b is no material that is knowingly illegal here.
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. Return to General Crstal Hardware.
I’m not the right person to ask. Sorry Kisai, but saying that avoiding all soundcards that are not Creative Labs soundcards is utter nonsense. Audio quality and noise will naturally be determined by the analogue stage of the motherboard.

I always stay away from them when I plan to do DOS stuff. For some it’s fast, for some it’s slow. Maybe you don’t need drivers though, try some DOS games and see if they work! If it’s been well designed, the sound quality will be excellent and noise levels very cyrstal.
All hail the Great Capacitor Brand Finder. Board index All times are UTC. But obviously not all sound cards will be compatible with every DOS game. Discussion about old PC hardware. Would this be at least somewhat compatible with early-mid ’90s DOS games? 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.
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.
Gerwin has a few posts on the CSx chipset, look them up for a better understanding of the chipset and driver downloads for it.
Crystal CSB with ALSA?
Many SB clone and genuine SB cards suffer from poor analogue design though and are noisy, have poor frequency cx4236b or pick up digital or power supply noise from the motherboard or other expansion cards in the PC. I did notice that the Dell has integrated sound, though, and some quick searching shows that it uses a Crystal CS sound card.
The music will be scratchy and have a “ringing” sound to it if the anti-aliasing filter is badly designed and if the channels are swapped, pressing the left shift key crystall play the flipper sound on the right channel and vice-versa. I flermmed the plootash just like you asked.
It would certainly work for your machine, but I think it would be overkill. This forum is for DOS games on modern systems.

You might try a PCI video card. In what to one race is no time at all, another race can rise and fall Trio 64 is better suited to Pentium I machines. I’m focusing on the sound card for now Thanks in advance. Epic Pinball will quickly reveal if the sound channels are swapped and if the soundcard has a poor anti-aliasing filter.
