3.  Installing Crystal Audio Drivers
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    WINDOWS 95
    1.	Windows95 will detect the PCI Multimedia Audio device.  Press the NEXT 
        button. 

    2.  The driver for the "Crystal SoundFusion (tm) PCI Audio will be requested
        by the Operating System. Enter the drive letter assigned to your CDROM 
        or press the BROWSE button and search for the CDROM Drive or the 
        location of the driver files. Once the path has been provided, press 
        the FINISH button.

   3.	Again, Windows95 will request that you provide the Crystal 
	SoundFusion(tm) Disk.  Press the OK button to continue, then 
	provide the path to the location of the driver files.


    WINDOWS 98
    1.  Windows will detect the PCI Multimedia Audio Device and initiate the 
        Add New Hardware Wizard.  Press the NEXT button to continue.

    2.  Select the 'Search for the best driver for your device' option and press
        the NEXT button.

    3.  Select the CD-ROM drive (or the appropriate path to the location of 
        the driver files).  Press the NEXT button.

    4.  The installation wizard will indicate that it is ready to install the 
        Crystal SoundFusion (tm) Audio driver.  Press the NEXT button to 
        continue.
    
    5.  Press the FINISH button to complete the installation.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.  Uninstalling or Updating Crystal Audio Drivers
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1. 	From the Windows START menu, run SETUP.EXE located in the Crystal 
        SoundFusion(tm) CD and select Install or Uninstall.  This application 
        will do an automatic clean-up of the Windows 95 Crystal Audio registry 
        entries.  
        
        NOTE: Many problems with reinstallation occur because of existing 
        registry entries from previous installations and because of the 
        \WINDOWS\INF\OEMx.INF files.  After running SETUP.EXE, the various 
        Crystal devices should not be listed in the Device Manager window.  

    2. 	Restart your system.  If you want to remove or install any hardware, 
	select the SHUTDOWN option and turn off your PC.

    3.	Turn PC on.  Upon loading, Windows 95 will detect new hardware, create 
	an information database, and proceed with the installation of Crystal 
	device drivers (as described in the previous section)

6.  Crystal Legacy Audio - Playing Audio in DOS/Windows DOS Box
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DOS and DOS Box games/programs support two types of audio: sound and music.
    The DOS Crystal Legacy support works if you make any of the following 
    selections when setting your DOS game/program : 
        - SOUND :   SoundBlaster/SoundBlasterPro compatible.

        - MUSIC :   Adlib (FM Synthesis), or SoundBlaster.  

    Settings for DOS and DOS Box games can be obtained in several ways. The 
    blaster environment variable contains the game settings.  To obtain the 
    blaster variable, simply type "set".  This will give you a list of all 
    environment variables and the blaster variable will be among them.

    An alternate way to obtain your DOS/DOS Box settings is to check out the 
    resources reported by the "Crystal SoundFusion Game Device".  You may read 
    this information from the Windows Device Manager.  

    The resources settings needed are the following :
        - SoundBlaster Interrupt
        - SoundBlaster I/O
        - SoundBlaster DMA
        - FM I/O.  

    The DOS loader, CWCDOS.EXE, is required for Crystal Legacy support.  During
    the installation of this driver kit, AUTOEXEC.BAT will be updated with this 
    loader.   Without it, no audio will be present in native DOS. In addition,
    upon a subsequent reboot (after driver installation), the file DOSSTART.BAT
    will also be modified to contain the CWCDOS.EXE loader.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7.  CWCAUDIO.INF Settings
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1.  Enabling ZV Port
        By default, the ZV port support is disabled.  To enable it, change the 
        following entry (found the the [CS4610.AddReg] section):

        Default value  :  HKLM,%KEY_BASE%\Pass,PollOnZV,1,00,00,00,00
        ZV Enabled     :  HKLM,%KEY_BASE%\Pass,PollOnZV,1,01,00,00,00


    2.  Resource control for Crystal SoundFusion(tm) Game Device
        Two entries are used to manage the resources used by the game device. 

        a)  Driver loading enable is controlled by the entry:
            HKLM,%KEY_BASE%\Algorithms\Blaster,Enabled,1,01,00,00,00

            By default, loading the Game Device is enabled.  This means that if
            this entry is missing (or commented out) the Game Device will be 
            enabled.  

            To prevent this driver from loading (disable the Game Device),
            please change the entry to:            
            HKLM,%KEY_BASE%\Algorithms\Blaster,Enabled,1,00,00,00,00

            The device will not load, No Soundblaster(tm) emulation is provided
            and no resources will be required by it.


        b)  The second INF entry serves as a mask register to control the 
            possible interrupts for assignment to the Game device:  
            HKLM,%KEY_BASE%\Algorithms\Blaster,Resources,1,00,00,a0,06

            The default value is to make all possible interrupts (5, 7, 9, 10)
            valid to be assigned by the Windows configuration manager.  This
            means that if this entry is missing (or commented out), all 
            interrupts are available for PNP assignment.  

            The two high order bytes are 0.  The third byte is the low order 
            byte, and represents interrupts 0-7 : 
            BIT   ->  7    6    5    4    3    2    1    0
            IRQ   ->  7    6    5    4    3    2    1    0

                For example, the value "a0" (shown above) enables interrupts 5 
                and 7:
                    BIT   ->  7    6    5    4    3    2    1    0
                    VALUE ->  1    0    1    0    0    0    0    0  (a0h)
                    IRQ   ->  7         5

                As another example, a value of "08" would only include int 3:
                    BIT   ->  7    6    5    4    3    2    1    0
                    VALUE ->  0    0    0    0    1    0    0    0  (08h)
                    IRQ   ->                      3


            The next byte represents interrupts 8-15 :
            BIT   ->  7    6    5    4    3    2    1    0
            IRQ   ->  15   14   13   12   11   10   9    8


                For example, the "06" (shown above) enables interrupts 9 and 
                10:
                    BIT   ->  7    6    5    4    3    2    1    0
                    VALUE ->  0    0    0    0    0    1    1    0
                    IRQ   ->                           10   9

            NOTE that the entire mask example permits interrupts 5,7,9,and 10.


    3.  Resource Control for the Joystick Device Driver
        The Joystick Driver loading enable is controlled by the entry:

           HKLM,%KEY_BASE%\Algorithms\Joystick,Enabled,1,01,00,00,00

        By default, this entry is commented out - which means that the 
        driver is enabled. 

        To prevent this driver from loading (disable), please change the 
        entry to (make sure that the line is not commented out - has a 
        semi-colon at the beginning of the line):            

           HKLM,%KEY_BASE%\Algorithms\Joystick,Enabled,1,00,00,00,00


    4.  Changing the default Recording Input:
        The RecMuxValue under [Mixer.AddReg] controls the default recording
        input. The following table shows the values for the recording mux 
        input:
                0    Mic
                1    CD
                2    Video
                3    Aux
                4    Line
                5    Loopback
 
        By default, the recording input is set to Mic.  The CWCAUDIO.INF 
        entry is the following:  
            
           HKR,Config\Mixer,RecMuxValue,,"0"  


    5.  Hardware Volume Control
        The following CWCAUDIO.INF entry controls the Hardware Volume 
        polling (the default value is disabled) :

           ;HKLM,%KEY_BASE%\ControlPanel,HardwareMasterVolumeUsed,,"0"

        To enable this feature, please modify the CWCAUDIO.INF entry to be :
           
           HKLM,%KEY_BASE%\ControlPanel,HardwareMasterVolumeUsed,,"1"


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8.  Fixed Problems
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   - Wave and Midi mixing causes audio to be too noisy when the Equalizer is 
     enabled or bands are modified and applied.
   - S/P DIF out does not funciton after the PCI device is disabled/re-enabled.
   - S/P DIF out noise when playing/rewinding/pausing a wave file.
   - Dynamic Configuration test crashes while testing the joystick and MPU-401 
     devices.
   - S/P DIF out audio is lost after numerous suspend/resume sequences.
   - Suspend/resume sometimes causes Active Movie files to lock up.
   - Audio is muted when playing a file in repeat-mode and S/P DIF out is 
     enabled.
   - ACT 4.1 test failures.
   - Changes in the volume of the MIDI streaming test causes changes in the
     tempo.
   - Changing the memory range of PCI accelerator sometimes causes the audio 
     system to be unstable.
   - After removing the Game device, the FM device is lost.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8.  Known Problems and Limitations
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   - Playing MIDI, CD audio, wave and capture when AEC is turned ON, may slow
     down the system.
   - The joystick calibration for DOS games may be poor.
   - Play or capture may cause intermitent noise when ZV port is enabled.
   - The system my prompt for a restart when the audio device Disabled or
     removed from device manager.
   - Audio may sound temporarly abnormal after a suspend/resume sequence while
     playing a MIDI file using FM as the preferred MIDI playback device.
   - When three waves files or more are played simultaneously through Media Player
     and the system is suspended, then some stuttering will be heard upon resuming.
   - The S/P DIF out left channel may occasionally be distorted.

  • Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.

  • Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  • From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.
