    trackers are not really compatible with the new environments today (windows etc..). Were you on a straight DOS 6 computer before this PC?

    No. On a windows 98. machine. It automatically went in ms-dos mode when I ran FT2. The proble occurred only after I installed a new soundblaster card

    What soundcard did you have before the soundblaster one? And by the way... the "msdos mode" of windows 98 has only little to do with the real "straight" DOS 6,and some software are refusing to work because of this.

    Now.. you said it was working before...

    I think I know... Nowaday, when you install a soundblaster card, it doesn't always install and set correctly the DOS SB16 emulation (or whatever the name is), and it is often that DOS sound problems occurs.

    Right now I have a Soundblaster 128 card, and before that one I had a Soundblaster 16.

    But what you are suggesting,is to reinstall the sb128 software?

    yes try that.... and also make sure you install the DOS drivers as well... Now they even call it DOS SB16 emulation I think.

    Post the results, and we'll try to help out if it doesn't work

    Unhappy

    It has been a while since I've been here, but it's good to be back...

    But the case is I still cant't get Fast Tracker to work under windows 98. I have reinstalled my soundcard (soundblaster 128) and I have even changed my audio IRQ number from 5 to 7, but it just won't work...

    So now I want to try something else... Does anybody know a similar Tracker that will work under the conditions I have on my PC!?

    awaiting you reply

    P.S. It's killin' me, not making any music (I have tried Modtracker, but that one sucks)
