IRQ's and DMA channels are currently hard coded of they have to be manually set for now.

It probably uses an unimplemented command. Look in the error log window to see.

Initially Windows did correctly identify the settings when I added new hardware, but I didn't have the Windows disc in and ended up with an illegal operation, but after rebooting, inserting the Windows 95 disc and setting up the driver to see it, Windows identified the new hardware (this time with the incorrect settings) and I was able to change these manually and get it to work.

As far as SC2000 goes, I don't recall seeing any unimplemented features in the error log, but I will look again real quick tonight maybe (football on tonight and takes major priority!)

SimCity 2000 CD Collection (Win 3.x / Win 9x): Depending on the country where this was released, you either get the DOS version included, or you don't. I've had the Big Box version sent to me from the US which does not include the DOS version unfortunately (UK version seems to though). Here are some shots of the game up and running on Windows 95 in full 256 colour at 1024x768 (S3 does not support anything higher in Windows at the moment. I'm unsure of the maximum resolution it can support, possibly 1600x1200?). Sound and music is provided by the Sound Blaster 16.

probably just down to the version of Windows and the fonts / languages installed.

You see it sometimes even today although more often with forums not processing some codepages correctly and mangling apostrophes.

That's interesting. I need to find a copy of Ultima VI and try to make it work.

"Unfortunately, when the DAC is playing on real hardware, the built in joystick ports cannot be used."

A slight oversight there!
