Topic: Sound Blaster awe 64

does the driverpack have the drivers for this soundcard?
thanks in advance

Re: Sound Blaster awe 64

Isn't that an old ISA card?
I'm guessing not in our DriverPacks.

*CTL00??  does not return a hit in the packs...

I have this card in my 486... it just won't die. tongue

I built it back in 98

DFI-MB - 4 x PCI, 3 x ISA, 1 x VLB
AMD CPU am5x86-p75-s 133Mhz (overclocked to 160Mhz for over 10 years now)
Fancy cpu cooler with a thermal electric conductor
  The the cpu allways stays ICE cold to the touch, (the edges are exposed) but don't touch that heatsink when checking!
64MB Ram
BusLogic Caching Controller card VLB, 4 x IDE w/16MB RAM (It has its own dedicated I386 cpu on board wink)
   I bought the MB with legacy support for VLB so I could keep this card...
   man it was fast I could duplicate a full 850MB drive in under 15 min wink
ISA Intel NIC 100Mb
PCI TV Tuner Card
PCI adaptec Wide SCSI adapter
Floppy; 3.5 1.44,  5.25 1.2, QIC Colorado T1000 Backup
IDE 40x CD ROM
IDE HDDs usually four, one striped set for OS internal / Two removable drive trays for data
SCSI 3 x Nakamichi MBR-7  7 Disc CD changers 2x - These are awesome pieces of hardware...
  Great for a jukebox Sound quality and THD is Excellent, however burning 21 drive letters created issues occasionaly wink tongue
Soundblaster Awe64
  Hooked to my Sansui 9090 DB 125 Watts per channel RMS (500 watts)
  At a lan party at my house i turned it on when nobody was looking
  I then fired my shotgun  wink tongue  There was not a clean pair of shorts in the house LOL Hee hee ho ho big_smile
courier v.everything 33.6 - Dialup... those were the days!

The Kids use it as a media center, tv radio CDs etc...
I am just in disbelief that it still runs...
I have brutalized this machine in every possable way for a decade
I guess i build machines to well... sorry big_smile

Quake was the nail in this machines coffin...
It was as fast as or faster than any pentium 166/200 machine,
until someone wrote an app (Quake) that took advantage of the pentium specific instruction codes.
At that point it just suffered to much of a performance disadvantage and was retired to TV and CD player status...
It also still serves as a DOS, win 3.11, win95/98 reference (well yeah its multiboot wink)

Ah the memorys...


Sadly no it is not supported... but that was fun anyway!

Re: Sound Blaster awe 64

Thanks for taking us down memory lane!
My family's first "PC" was an Apple II+ with 128kb memory card, an 80-column card for "High resolution" text, two 5.25 "floppy" drives, and (luxury) a 10 MB hard drive that cost nearly as much as the car!
We then upgraded to a Mac SE 16MHz.  I loved playing the original SimCity and all those old Broderbund games.
I was a Mac guy after that.  All the way from System 6 to MacOS-X.  Yes, I had drank the Apple Kool-aid.
My first PC was a P4 rig I built myself after I lost my faith.
Ah, the good ol days...

Re: Sound Blaster awe 64

Broderbund - Prince of persia (original) was one of my all time favorites -
I still make sure to get all of the PoP releases as a result big_smile

Speaking of New versions of old games... Wolfenstein 2009 is excellent!!!

Re: Sound Blaster awe 64

Hi,
windows's own general "legacy" soundblaster driver should accomodate this?

The answer was 42?
Kind regards, Jaak.

Re: Sound Blaster awe 64

soundblaster 16 and 32 are natively supported... the 64 is not included
