I. Overview
=======================================================================

A. WINDOWS 9x SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

* CD-ROM drive
* Access to Microsoft Windows 9x Installation CD-ROM.
* Good-quality speakers or headphones and connecting cables.

and EAX-supporting games when reverb is enabled.

- Abomination: Reverb is considerably different than on
other EAX-compatible cards.

- Aliens vs. Predator: These drivers do not support
Voice Manager which may be preventing reverb from

I. Overview
---------------------------

A. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS:

1. Windows NT 4.0 PC with:
* Pentium 166MHz or faster CPU
* 32MB RAM
* Available PCI slot.
* Windows NT installed.
* 15MB hard disk space in the Windows NT partition.
* CD-ROM drive.
2. Good-quality speakers or headphones and connecting cables.
3. Joystick and MIDI keyboard (optional).
B. NEW FEATURES:

1. Added support for additional Codecs.

C. WINDOWS NT 4.0 DRIVER ISSUES:

1. BIOS Settings - For proper operation, any BIOS support for
"Plug and Play OS" or "Windows 95 OS" must be disabled. The NT
drivers attempt to configure the audio card if the BIOS setting
is set correctly, but are not successful on all machine types.

2. Matrox Display Adapters - The Matrox drivers shipping with NT
4.0 are poorly behaved in the system and hog the PCI bus during
heavy graphics usage, which can cause noticeable audio
dropouts.
If using Matrox Millennium II driver v3.20, (4.0.55), try
upgrading to the latest Matrox drivers. Upgrading to the latest
driver will not guarantee any improvement. In this case, you
may want to contact Matrox directly to address this problem.

3. Number Nine Display Adapters - The Number Nine Imagine128
drivers shipping with NT4.0 are poorly behaved in the system
and hog the PCI bus during heavy graphics usage, which can
cause noticable audio dropouts.

4. Riva 128 Display Adapters - The Riva 128 drivers shipping
with NT4.0 are poorly behaved in the system and hog the PCI bus
during heavy graphics usage, which can cause noticeable audio
dropouts. A new set of drivers for Riva128 display adapters
fixes the problem and is available from:

http://www.stb.com/drivers/velocity/vl128.html

5. 3COM network card drivers - Version 1.0 of the XL 3COM network
card driver found on the NT distribution CD can cause blue
screens during installations. Be sure to use 1.1 or above.

II. INSTALLATION
-----------------------

A. HARDWARE SETUP:

1. Power off your computer.
2. Remove the cover on your computer.
3. Remove the screw and bracket from any free PCI slot.
4. Insert the Vortex2 SQ2500 sound card into the free PCI slot.
5. Screw in the sound card bracket.
6. Replace the cover on the computer.

B. WINDOWS NT 4.0 DRIVER INSTALLATION:

If you have an older version of the drivers, please uninstall them
now using the uninstallation steps in section C. After installing
the card, you can install multimedia drivers from the CDROM's
\NT40 directory. Here are step-by-step directions on Windows
NT 4.0 installation:
