I wants my Duke3D. Return to General Old Hardware. But try playing a shooter and shooting a few things, causing explosions etc and see if this card has that issue. It seems to give popping noises on anything other than a Sound Blaster. Any chance you could give it a go with SoftMPU? The DOS software — which can be found on Vogon Drivers — is bare bones but is easy to use and powerful. I believe it has more channels than the real thing, which the Windows MIDI driver can use for full 4-op sound.

I bought it new for a Pentium if I remember correctly. EXE is likewise easy to use, and allowed me to set the MIDI and CD volumes both muted by esand the volume levels were perfect first time which is a rare thing in my experience. Tyrian is a challenging one for clones. Eess 71x can supposedly do that, however the setup program doesn’t know how.
