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 bought a Dell which comes with integrated SoundMax Digital soundcard. The computer can play audio without speakers or headphones, but the volume is very low. My old PC’s soundcard (Soundblaster) has treble and bass options, which make the audio sound much better. This SoundMax card doesn’t have these options (under Windows’ volume controls)

I’ve googled this lousy soundcard, and there appears to be some sort of SoundMax Control Panel, which I hope may have more advanced options. But I have the latest driver, and there’s still no control panel.

Does anyone have any tips how to improve the sound? Do I have to buy a$$kickin speakers?

Like for listening to the songs of Idol3, on my computer the songs sound worse than on my work computer.
