I have an integrated ES soundcard in my Compaq. Also the wavetable header could not be configured to a useable port number this is done via jumpers , the lowest available was port ! And as others have noted here there is a nasty pop when starting the PC, but these are minor complaints in my opinion. There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. Return to General Old Hardware. Maybe after reading this thread I should consider activating it again Do you know the differences between ES and ES?

I have an integrated ES soundcard in my Compaq. I tried 3 of these things, a YMF,and The ES datasheet http: Dual Xeon X 4. I wants my Duke3D.
It’s an international shipment so I’m still waiting: I was able to turn the game port and CD-ROM connector off easily and configure the wavetable header to port Tyrian is a challenging one for clones. The 71x can supposedly do that, however the setup program doesn’t know how.
There is also an issue with the game port on this card, detailed in the linked thread above. This site hosts no abandonware.
There was a certain ESS card I tried and didn’t like because it could only play a couple of sounds at a time, or would play the first half of a sound and cut off the rest.

I dug through my box of sound cards looking for a replacement and tried an: The DB header is also quite unusual, one of the 5V pins and the esa pin is used as iwn98 audio input, which can be used only by certain ESS DBs. I believe it has more channels than the real thing, which the Windows MIDI driver can use for full 4-op sound. It insists on enabling WSS which is obviously not gonna work on 8-bit. I haven’t had a chance to try any of the ISA AudioDrives but I’m looking forward to giving this baby a spin once it arrives.

Also the game had some minor SFX issues on that particular codec.
I do believe it’s not as compatible as the YMF, though. Return to General Old Hardware. I bought it new for a Pentium if I remember correctly.
