|The "MAME" drivers are just Creative Lab's "Legacy" drivers.|
Sound Blaster "Legacy DOS" drivers will only work when booted into Windows and then "Restart in DOS mode" and that is not always very compatible with older programs.
Your best bet is a system with an ISA sound card. There are some PCI cards that claim they work in and have drivers for real-mode DOS, but they are getting harder to find and sorry, I have never used one.
If someone is listening, here is a niche to be filled, ppl still like their DOS programs.
DosBox and other emulators are also "iffy".
Most ppl find an old 486 or Pentium I system with ISA sound card.
Rule #1 Good computers don't go down.
Rule #2 There is no such thing as a good computer.
