Hunt down Archon Ultra - it is one of the few games with genuine GUS support. Also, the GUS cards were generally best supported by the Demo scene (think Second Reality, for example). * Most * game support tended to be along the lines of treating it just like a SoundBlaster for digital, and maybe preloading a subset of MIDI patches for music (support for more games than officially supported could be hacked in by swapping out AIL drivers - AIL being a common audio library system used by many games back in the day - you'd just copy over one card's AIL drivers with the GUS's AIL drivers and select that original card in the game's config program).
Yep, I bought a firewire hub to network my houses PCs together at 400Mb/s when LAN availability was only at 100Mbit.Firewire was like the USB 3.0 of its day, it was pretty awesome. Lower CPU overhead, faster data transfer, supplied more power.
Lol!Wow, you can even hook up 6 Ipods to it also, that sure was ahead of its time.
