First of all, nice setup!
We know of the issues of Savage Quest in MAME and hope to have them fixed at some point. It's also effectively a late 1990's PC and we're nearing the age of our being able to emulate those at a decent speed. (An x86 dynamic recompiler core would also help the performance a lot.)
We'd also really appreciate a hard drive dump from a pristine Savage Quest 2.1 install, which I guess you have unless you've touched a lot of the files on the hard drive. The 2.1 revision is undumped. https://mamedev.emulab.it/undumped/index.php?title=Savage_Quest
If you'd like to help us, a disc image of a hard drive with version 2.1 is still required, plus possibly additional hardware information. We're not in a rush to get it done, but it would be admittedly nice to have.
