Description

And one more AdLib-related request: Basically, implementing support for genuine OPL hardware on PCI and ISA sound cards. The DOSBox Megabuild allows for this with its OPL Passthrough, for example (http://home.arcor.de/h-a-l-9000/).

Ticket imported from: #2995090. Ticket imported from: feature-requests/578.

Looks certainly doable. Personally I do not have any real OPL chip on an audio card in my development box, thus I guess you'll have to wait till someone comes up with a patch.

If someone intends to tackle it sometime in the future: The best card to use would probably be the FortéMedia FM801 which has fully functional drivers for both Windows 9x and XP.
