    SBLive! With OLDER Games!
    By Bungo2000 August 08, 2001, 02:37 PM

    I'm trying to fire up the great Day of the Tentacle but I am having difficulties setting up the sound options (currently I have no sound at all), and DOTT has some great voice acting. When it tries to auto detect the sound setup it locks up (just the DOS window). The blanks I need to fill in are Port, IRQ, and Buffer. Where can I find this information from my soundcard? Also, I was looking in the device manager and noticed there was no SoundBlaster 16 emulation like I seem to remember there was when I was running Windows 98. Maybe not, but it seems like I might need to do something to get that running if that's the problem. Thanks alot.

    I was looking at something to do with putting the SB16 setup stuff in autoexec.bat and config.sys... it was for Win9x though so I'm still stumped. I think I need to enable the emulation somehow. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    SB16 emulation should be enabled by default. Just Right click on My computer -> Properties, open Creative Miscellaneous Devices, get properties of SB16, and go to the Setting tab. That should give you all you need.

    Right, except there is no Creative Miscellaneous Devices anywhere to be found. Has anybody seen this disapear before? Take note I am using W2K, not sure what you were using.

    dude... i highly doubt you can get DOTT to work with win2k. that's a dos game and win2k does not have dos anything in it.
    that's why i keep a dualboot with win98se...

    I think it's possible.

    The settings depends on what you have in your computer, but all the time, with every kind of sound card these are the settings (by default) used:

    DMA: 1
    DMA: 3 or 5
    IRQ: 5
    Port: 220

    There are two DMA for 16 and up cards. I dont have the time to look for you, but look it up on creative's site. there must be some emulation available to you.

    Please also note, SB Live is not a sound blaster! It emulates it but drivers has to be installed for it.

    (Forgot to add)
    Older games only work with Sound Blaster and compatible. SB Live is not compatible, it emulates it. Hope this helps.
