Hah, so now... I need to re-discover mem addresses in my ES1938S and CS4280...
How about porting a player to AVR/STM32 using old ISA card like Mozart... :>
Also, it would be very useful if the info that these cards can work was added to the FAQ. :) It took me quite a while to find confirmation, as I knew that the YFM could emulate ISA-based cards like the AWE64, but it didn't mention compatibility with ALT in the FAQ.

“PCI cards based on FM801 chip also works without emulation, but only under Win9x/DOS.”
Apparently it can be made to work on XP using a few workarounds, including a port-mapping as you mentioned for the YMF7: http://dev.kewl.org/fm801/Doc/
Merry Christmas to all of you... wish you happy time with your families!

@subz3ro No problem :-)

Btw, here's my sound card picture (ugly quality)
Easy to grab/buy. And it has SB-link...
Windows XP detected this beast as "Yamaha Native/Legacy DS1 WDM" on these drivers:
Oh, thanks, subz3ro! That's great. I was wondering if I was missing something simple like that, but I couldn't find anything in the manual about it or online. That helps a lot. :)

@icelizarrd: Ahh okay, I think I see your problem. The sound of an instrument is sometimes not exactly the same, even though you do the correct "restart" of ADSR envelope. This is because when you do next note triggers in the same channel, the tracker does not always stop the previous sound (this is not a bug but a prevention for smooth playback - otherwise you would here clicks and pops during playback for some instruments). In case you want your instrument to sound like on first note trigger, you can use ZF0 command and release sustaining sound in the channel.

@Sebas9k: That's very useful information! Thank you very much :)
@subz3r0 Thanks for the reply, sorry it took me so long to respond. Yeah, it seems to be just one instrument. Here's an a2m that should demonstrate the problem (or at least it does for me).

Just to supplement the FAQ about Adlib Tracker II and sound card restrictions to the public.
|< << Page 1 of 64 >> >|
I am listening without any emulation my favourite tunes on quite modern machine, which has no ISA slots.
Yamaha PCI soundcard based on YMF724 processor has OPL3 chip & It's possible to get it to work under Windows XP ;-) A small workaround, like userport driver is needed to access 388h-38Bh (due to the OS restrictions)
PCI cards based on FM801 chip also works without emulation, but only under Win9x/DOS.
