I third, I have a Toshiba (dynabook) Portege 3000CT with OPL3-SAx (might that be 3?)

I had problems getting any sound but windows designated opl-midisynth to output through opl3 but it worked when I tried playing through it in dos.
Ironically just when adlibtracker.net revived and I had been trying at2 out for a while the harddrive lost half of it's data and when I unscrewed the casing I ground down the screws x¨0 gonna try something.
the portege 3000CT is a great buy and works with impulse tracker and many other dos-ware from windows dos-prompt and 3rd-party batteries are sold on ebay :¨3
and oh the keyboard layout (with numpad keys) is so perfectly layed out and it's so thin and sexy.. I've slept with it on several occasions.
Yes yes Toshiba Satelite 220CS with opl3-X inside...

here is a Sound IC list that have an OPL3 chip inside ;)
the ONLY PCI chipset i know that has an OPL3 synthesizer was from ESS called ESS Solo
and yamaha got it too.. these chips got it YMF724, YMF740, YMF744, YMF754
i use a Toshiba Satelite Pro 460CDT for playing FM tunes :)
got this onboard: OPL3-SA3, worx great.
Probably nobody read it, but anyway I have a correction to make to my post below. Official response from Cirrus Logic to my enquiries about the CS4237:

"This is not a Cirrus board but made by a third party using the Cirrus and Yamaha chips" - hence throwing into doubt my assertion that it's a soundcard-on-a-single-IC, but conflicting with info contained in the released datasheet:
I wouldn't be surprised if it contained a clone of the circuit inside the genuine OPL3. Sounds OK.
Very nice program. I use RADTracker to make OPL2 music.

CS4237B chip is very common in many slightly-obsolete notebooks/laptops made by various manufacturers. It's a soundcard-on-a-chip, advertised as OPL2 and OPL3 compatible. I tried it out with AdT2. It does work properly.
Very nice website.Good work.POKEY AND OP3/2 RULES...

Which driver do you have installed? Creative-Labs?
I don't have any experience with the Audigy2
(proud AWE32&ESS1688 owner - both used for LLSID development)
but you could try to install these Yamaha drivers:
im running xp pro sp2.

unfortunately, i wasnt able to find much info on the chip either, thats why i asked here :)
i tried unplugging my audigy2 and no change in the behavior... so its not a conflict.
it seems that old games cant access the fm synth directly, only if i set the default midi output in windows to it, and route the game's midi output through that...
so this leads me to believe that yamaha never implemented direct access to the fm chip in the drivers, which sucks. or maybe its an xp issue, i know xp doesnt like programs directly accessing the hardware.
'tis a pitty...
i guess ill have to try getting an old pentium 2 box up and running with a sb16, oh well.
thanks for the help anyway, if anything else comes to mind, please let me know.
Snu: What OS are you running? If Win98/ME, have you tried both inside Win and DOS-prompt? I've tried googling after more info on both "yamaha ds1" and "ymf724e-v" but there's very little hands-on info to find about it, so it's hard to say what the problem is. The card seems quite unsupported.

I don't have any experience with the Audigy-cards but the drivers for the Live!-cards included software emulation (which is quite lofi in terms of frequencyrate) of "SB16" in DOS. If they're also included with the Audigy/2-cards there could possibly be a conflict, but I guess you should have heard *something* in AT2 atleast.
Do you get any Adlib-sound with other DOS-stuff (f.ex. old games like Commander Keen 4/Wolfenstein 3D)?
encore: i have tried several ports in the ini file. device manager lists the port range for the soundcard as 220-22f, 330-331, and 388-38b, setting the port to a specific number in this range simply causes no sound to come out, tho adlibtracker starts up fine. i wasnt sure if the opl chip itself uses a specific port in this range, or if just the soundcard's range would work?
|< << Page 62 of 64 >> >|
strangely enough yesterday it was giving me that error message when i set it to some ports, but it doesnt seem to be today...
i cant get adplug to detect it either, even with installing the porttalk driver.
i guess this pretty much means that the chip is too different and isnt supported then?
