DOS sound card setup
06/05/14 07:34 AM Attachment: SBPCI error.jpg 429 KB (0 downloads)


I'm trying to setup a dedicated pc for multi-vector use, and to that end have a generic box running DOS 6.22 and a Sound Blaster CT4810 sound card. I've followed much of the advice from the arcadecontrols forum, the EasyMameCab site (where I obtained SBPCI drivers), and Al's ZVG Vector Mame cabinet video series on YouTube. I have eliminated all startup errors from my autoexec.bat, verified that the sound card is indeed recognized and initialized, but I still don't get sound.

What I do get (upon launching a game and selecting '1. Sound Blaster') is a page full of what appear to be memory errors, as the first line reads 'Exiting due to signal SIGFPE', followed by 'Division by Zero at eip=002e7a3d,' etc. The last line reads 'Call frame traceback EIPs: 0x002e7a3d' (image attached).

Any ideas what this error suggests? If I select '0. Silence', all games run fine. Something about trying to invoke the sound card during play causes the error. Would appreciate any thoughts as to where I should focus my efforts next...
