Hi :D,

i waited a long time for this to happen...SoundFX 2000 THE sound card emulator for DOS programs running on Windows NT4,2000 and XP is now open source!

SoundFX 2000:
SoundFX 2000 is THE sound card emulator for DOS programs running on Windows XP, 2000 and NT4. As delivered, these systems provide a DOS emulation for running 16 and 32 bit protected mode programs but due to the security model, direct peripheral access is denied. Most DOS multimedia titles (games) provide sound by directly accessing the sound card and as a result although many can be run under Windows, until now none have been able to produce sound and hence lose a great deal of playability.

SoundFX provides a complete emulation of a SoundBlaster 16 card and hence enables old favourites such as Doom (1 & 2), Heretic, Duke Nukem (2 & 3D) etc to be run with sound under Windows XP, 2000 & NT4.

Complete software emulation of the Adlib FM synthesiser. Ideal for sound cards like the SBLive which don't have FM synthesiser hardware, restoring music to many DOS games.
Now uses DirectSound features for even lower overhead and better digitised effects.
MPU401/Roland emulation provides general MIDI music for best quality and lowest overhead. Now supports MIDI input for music composition software.
Support for a standard games port providing 4 analogue & 4 digital inputs. Ideal for flight sims requiring yoke, throttle, rudder pedals and POV hat.
Complete SoundBlaster, 2, Pro, 16, AWE32 emulation for wave effects.
Extensive online help for installation and use.
