Means:
- If your GUS stuff is in \oldgames\ULTRASND\
- And you mount \oldgames\ as virtual C:
- You point to ultradir=C:\ULTRASND in dosbox conf

But honestly, howto was written in 2007, and now with dosbox 0.74 GUS emu was taken to a higher level, I doubt if it's still needed now to improve GUS sounds.
Notice: with dosbox 0.74 you probably will have to disable other sound devices in dosbox to avoid conflicts with the GUS drivers.

If you want to go on with GUS drivers please read

If you still have problems that's also where you should post for help, not here....

I'll explain it to you with an example.You have your game folder in C:\Games.
In that folder,you have your games and the ULTRASND folder.
If you mount your folder in DOSBox as the X drive (for example),then you should have the ultradir parameter like this:
ultradir=X:\ULTRASND
I hope I've helped you.

The link to the GUS files is broken again. It looks like it was taken down in 2015. RetroGamerFull's archive also doesn't work, there's only one doc file in there and none of the GUS files.
