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.
