Default SoundMAX

Hello,

I have an IBM ThinkCentre with a SoundMAX
Sound Card. I want to play old DOS-Games.
Where do I get the DOS-Drivers for this
SoundMAX (I scanned the net, but I did not
get anything).

Please help.

Christian

MS-DOS didn't use sound drivers. Each game had it's own code that talked
the sound card directly.

If you're trying to play MS-DOS games under Windows XP or newer, the
usual suggestion is to use DOSBox:

http://www.dosbox.com

An alternative is to use the MS-DOS emulator built-in Windows, along
with VDMSound which provides much better sound card emulation.

Default SoundMAX

Hello,

I have some questions:

Is the SoundMAX compatible with the Soundblaster?
If so, how do I set the BLASTER-variable to the right
value?

Greetings Christian

Nope. You have to use a program like DOSEmu that will emulate a
SoundBlaster.

I dont think msdos uses any sound drivers..
dos games are designed to use the sound card directly..
they can play some beeping noise..
