WIN 3.1x Replacement *VCMAD
"There is a fix for hangs especially when you are moving the cursor around I got it locally it was a Sound Blaster fix that works with the Piper card.
You replace the *VCMAD in the system.ini file in the windows directory with a file called vcmad.386 and put that file in the windows/system dir. Don't know how I could get it to you though"

HDE+ SCSI MCA Host Adapter ALSO uses a @5130.adf! If you
have mistakenly used the wrong adf, get the correct adf
and save it . That gives that adf the most recent date.
Run setup, choose Copy an Options Diskette. Setup will
see the "new" adf and copy over the incorrect one.
In this case, the chipsets between the
SCSI adapter and the sound card are dissimilar. No
damage will occur. BUT with other adapters with like
chipsets (two SCSI controllers, for instance) I would
pull the adapter out, run Copy an Option Diskette on the
"new" adf, then reinstall the card.
Sound Piper 16, rev 2
The two internal ports may be changed. My 16-2a has a
simple 16 pin header, minus one pin, no shroud. P3 is a
shrouded header that points upward along the PCB.
Silkscreened info on my two SP16s:
Pretty much the same layout as the SP16s, except the
Yamaha OPL YMF262-M has been probably incorporated (?)
into the QuickLogic FPGA. P3 and P4 are identical to the
SP16 v2, there is an additional two headers, HDR1 and
HDR2, I assume for the wavetable add-on?

Does this mean that the 32 Voice Wavetable is
integrated within the QuickLogic FPGA?
