MAME won't work for me?

Postby Joe Ledesma » Wed Feb 06, 2002 12:30 pm

Well, my new computer is all put together (yay) internet doesn't work yet (boo) I think it's the cable modem box. anyhow, MAME DOS doesn't work with sound because I have a sound blaster live card (I tried all the sound options on the menu, none worked). Is there anyway to get it to work WITH sound? MAME32 works great + fine, and MAMEW gives me an error (which I cannot find out right now WHAT kind of error due to the fact I powered it down till I can stick it back on top of a desk). Any clues about MAME DOS for the time being atleast, if not, I'll just listen to some music while recording a hopefully good Bosco INP either this weekend or next weekend, or during Feb break. Thanx people.

Unfortunatley this is a known issue with audigy cards and xp (what os do you have?), creative doused the dos compatibiltiy with it, there
is something you can run on the audigy cd that gives you dos
compatibility with windows98 but even then i can't seem to get things
to playback right and the sound sounds choppy but at least i can boot
98 and get sound from dos mame. incidentally mamew worked fine and
has worked fine.

<p>

if you do figure out how to get dos mame working please post,
anyone. well game guru got dos mame to work with arcade at home but
i think he doesn't have a sound blaster audio card....

I have WIN98SE. I'll have to mess around with it and see what I can do :) Thanx.

yeah, i have a win98se boot partition and i ran this special thing on the audigy (maybe live too) cd that gives you dos drivers for win98,
hidden in some subdirectory on the cd. IT is NOT included in the
regular sound card install stuff from the autoplay. it lets dos
mame play with slightly chopy sound, you still have to fool around
with the opl settings to get the least choppy sound.

<p>

good luck, if you get it working well lemme know.

Directsound controls MAME32, correct? I'll have to try the DOS stuff maybe tomorrow or Saturday; whenever my desk gets finished being built.
