Soundblaster 16 ISA problem in Doom 2

I don't seem to be able to get any sound out of Doom 2 with my Sounblaster 16 ISA card. It works with just about any other game you can think of but not this one. In the Doom 2 setup it has detected my sound card as a SoundblasterAwe32 or somthing and when i try and change it and run the game there ...

Nah i think i'll leave my Win95 pentium as it is. I have a Pentium 2 that i've had since new which has Win98 installed. I have networked it to my XP computer with no probs.

OK...I'm using the Ethernet ports to set up the peer-to-peer connection. So in my Windows XP i run the Network Setup wizard to configure the connection but then you must do the same on the other machine. The Network Setup wizard will create a floppy which you can use to run the wizard on machines th...

Of course i'm listening if anyones got any ideas.

your running that on 512mb of RAM?. Nah, thats simply too much for most Dos Games i know. About 32 or 64 mb should be plenty for any Dos game. Of course personally i would go for the Pentium so i can experiance the game better without it running WAY too fast. Why underclock your machine when you can...

I believe DOS games usually stop working properly with Pentium 2s. When i say "stop working properly" i mean in my experiance i tend to notice no background music (Wolf3d, Blake Stone). Your games will work OK with that Pentium 2 but you may or may not lose some features or other through i...

Keyboard/Joystick/GamePad

Hey all, what do you think is better keyboard, joystick or gamepad? I just wondered if having something like a gamepad is any better than using a keyboard.

I went to 3DRealms and downloaded the ROTT V1.2 CD Install help and used this patch to copy the installation files of the CD install Disk. It worked and i can play the game and use setup pretty well.

Thanks for that link.
