With sound you can try -isa4 sblaster as example.

Just remember that every 386 I have ever seen could only handle a half-gig hard drive as maximum size. Going larger produces unpredictable results depending on the computer - I wouldn't try it.

I've got a question about the Sound Blaster 1.5 support. I have here the two original floppy disk images for driver installation. The drivers install fine, however when I run "test-sbc.exe", it can't find I/O address at 220 Hex. I tried all values, but no luck. I don't know this is related to incomplete sound blaster emulation or some other reason. If anyone wants the drivers for testing purposes, you can get them here:

http://www.mediafire.com/?xnfb45xjxqada (look for Sound Blaster 1.5 Disks 3.5.zip - 748k).

Some games, like Pinball Dreams for example, will work when selecing the Sound Blaster, (apparently it does not rely on on the set sound / set blaster values), but games such as DOOM for example need these values set correctly before it will work.

Sorry, I should have mentioned. I have "sblaster1_5" installed in an ISA slot before MESS is loaded, in otherwords I've got this line at the bottom of my at486.ini file:

#
# SLOT DEVICES
#
isa4 sblaster1_5

I've tried all 4 ISA slots, yet get the same result. I also have the following line within my autoexec.bat file (it tells you to add it after installation or to just run it from the c: prompt before running a game that has sound blaster support.

SET SOUND=C:\SB

Sound Blaster support is very preliminary. I'd be working on it right now if Kale hadn't announced u6 and obligated me to run a lot of clean compiles smile

Definitely not a bug from what I can tell. I can successfully install MS-DOS 6.22 within the at486 driver without any problems, after creating a new empty hhd image within chdman.

If you attempt to boot a new CHD that has no OS on it, it'll say something along of the lines of inserting a system disk, or NO ROM BASIC, SYSTEM HALTED (usually get this message if you fdisk the drive and remove the partition completely, and you have no MS-DOS startup or install disk in the floppy drive).

In the BIOS, under Advanced CMOS Setup, change the System Boot Up Sequence from C:, A: to A:, C:. While your in here, you might as well add in your hard drive and MS-DOS floppy disk 1 image as the same time. As long as your hard disk is being recognized in the BIOS, reboot and MS-DOS should come up for installation. You won't be able to install MS-DOS on a hard drive that is 1.5GB is size though, hence the reason you've done that through Bochs already smile

Glad to hear that, no problem.

Pinball Fantasies (1992 / 1993) - Weird graphics in the menu, and can't "arrow down" to launch the ball.







No score display at the bottom when selecting "high" resolution mode.
