My Doom was playing allright on my 486. Not quite, because
my SBPro would freeze about 30 seconds into the game.

Thats why I switched to my 386. Now when I run DOOM I get

[ Usual DOOM startup output deleted ]

R_Init: Init DOOM refresh daemon………………

Nice, aint it ? :-(

Anyone know what this is ? iD ?

I’m running Doom on a 386/25 with AMI BIOS. I have a Soundblaster Pro
at 220,7,1.

By fiddling with the CMOS setup I’ve managed to: cause the computer to
reboot at the same point as above; cause the computer to lockup at same
point; cause computer to lockup during gameplay ( this was with clean boot,
no CONFIG.SYS and no AUTOEXEC ); cause Doom to stop with a message like
“Error: freed pointer with no ZONEID”.

What the hell is going on ?!?!??

C U!
