Hello, every one,
??Just? to say hello and?I have been reading the "news letters",
as the come in,..
?Actually maybe one question, I may have asked this along time ago, and either 
missed
the answer, or never was one... 
?I have a PacMan game, that is intended for Dos, it runs well with FreeDos, 
also,..but
it never can detect "sound blaster", and that is the only sound device it can 
use...
?The game, dose not run in Windows, nor is intended to, but with Dos Box it 
will,
?When run from Dos Box, it dose detect "sound blaster",...and the sound works..
? When I boot with Dos, it (the pac man )?runs well, but dose not have 
sound,..and the same when
I have booted with FreeDos....Ok apparently, in the windows partition,there is
either "sound blaster" or a emulator...howver since niether of my Dos partions, 
"read" the
windows partition(NTFS)...no "sound blaster" is detected....So,How can, or 
where can
I get "sound blaster" (or a emulator), for Dos,...? Do I need to get? a whole 
new "SB",..
that is for Dos?.... MPXPLAY, is working great for music, on the FreeDos, ...so 
the
sound capabiltys are there, but this PacMan, and it is in the readme doc, will 
only 
work with "sound blaster"...
Ok well thats about it, for now....
from Garry

This direction does not get you anywhere, because the emulator's output is  
simply the Windows driver for your sound card.>from me: Yea thats basically 
what I thought, or perhaps some one out there already has, and will share it 
with me...

This is better. Now learn to program in C and Assembly language and write  
a JLM Sound Blaster emulation driver based on MPXPLAY's drivers.

Regards,
Christian--------------------------------Thanks Christian,  However this may be 
years, down the road, as I am a slow learner, but thanks any way..., Anyway, 
also, in the other posts, about DosBox, well thats about all I use itfor, is 
the one stupid game,...it may seem stupid to evryone else, but I like it,... I 
agree Dos box, is real limited, and when I am useing Dos, I have booted, 
with Dos,...On the learn to program C,...I may be able to learn enough, to do 
this,.in time,...even if the game is stupid, old, etc...It would be a 
interesting project, justto see if I can..., I could also re-write the entire 
game, to run on more modern drivers, ---if I learn enough....well any thanks 
for the input..

You can't just "read the emulator" ... not because of the NTFS, but becausethis 
"emulator" is part of NTVDM + NTOSKRNL + sound driver system and will
not run in DOS even if you copy all the files.

> Do I need to get  a whole new "SB",.. that is for Dos?....

You could get an ISA SB sound card (if you have ISA slots) ...

:-)

OK....

> I get "sound blaster" (or a emulator), for Dos,...?

There are just tiny 2 things to do:

- create a sound driver model for FreeDOS with support of your card
- get some emulator (BOCHS, QEMU) working in FreeDOS and
  "connecting" to aforementioned sound driver
