Got to say i never change anything there in the sound options or even go there.

this is my dosbox-SVN.conf - (in the folder retropie/configs/pc)
# This is the configuration file for DOSBox SVN. (Please use the latest version of DOSBox) # Lines starting with a # are comment lines and are ignored by DOSBox. # They are used to (briefly) document the effect of each option. [sdl] # fullscreen: Start dosbox directly in fullscreen. (Press ALT-Enter to go back) # fulldouble: Use double buffering in fullscreen. It can reduce screen flickering, but it can also result in a slow DOSBox. # fullresolution: What resolution to use for fullscreen: original, desktop or a fixed size (e.g. 1024x768). # Using your monitor's native resolution with aspect=true might give the best results. # If you end up with small window on a large screen, try an output different from surface.On Windows 10 with display scaling (Scale and layout) set to a value above 100%, it is recommended # to use a lower full/windowresolution, in order to avoid window size problems. # windowresolution: Scale the window to this size IF the output device supports hardware scaling. # (output=surface does not!) # output: What video system to use for output. # Possible values: surface, overlay. # autolock: Mouse will automatically lock, if you click on the screen. (Press CTRL-F10 to unlock) # sensitivity: Mouse sensitivity. The optional second parameter specifies vertical sensitivity (e.g. 100,-50). # waitonerror: Wait before closing the console if dosbox has an error. # priority: Priority levels for dosbox. Second entry behind the comma is for when dosbox is not focused/minimized. # pause is only valid for the second entry. # Possible values: lowest, lower, normal, higher, highest, pause. # mapperfile: File used to load/save the key/event mappings from. Resetmapper only works with the default value. # usescancodes: Avoid usage of symkeys, might not work on all operating systems. fullscreen = true fulldouble = false fullresolution = desktop windowresolution = original output = overlay autolock = true sensitivity = 100 waitonerror = true priority = higher,normal mapperfile = mapper-SVN.map usescancodes = false [dosbox] # language: Select another language file. # machine: The type of machine DOSBox tries to emulate. # Possible values: hercules, cga, tandy, pcjr, ega, vgaonly, svga_s3, svga_et3000, svga_et4000, svga_paradise, vesa_nolfb, vesa_oldvbe. # captures: Directory where things like wave, midi, screenshot get captured. # memsize: Amount of memory DOSBox has in megabytes. # This value is best left at its default to avoid problems with some games, # though few games might require a higher value. # There is generally no speed advantage when raising this value. language = machine = svga_s3 captures = capture memsize = 16 [render] # frameskip: How many frames DOSBox skips before drawing one. # aspect: Do aspect correction, if your output method doesn't support scaling this can slow things down! # scaler: Scaler used to enlarge/enhance low resolution modes. If 'forced' is appended, # then the scaler will be used even if the result might not be desired. # To fit a scaler in the resolution used at full screen may require a border or side bars, # to fill the screen entirely, depending on your hardware, a different scaler/fullresolution might work. # Possible values: none, normal2x, normal3x, advmame2x, advmame3x, advinterp2x, advinterp3x, hq2x, hq3x, 2xsai, super2xsai, supereagle, tv2x, tv3x, rgb2x, rgb3x, scan2x, scan3x. frameskip = 0 aspect = false scaler = none [cpu] # core: CPU Core used in emulation. auto will switch to dynamic if available and # appropriate. # Possible values: auto, dynamic, normal, simple. # cputype: CPU Type used in emulation. auto is the fastest choice. # Possible values: auto, 386, 386_slow, 486_slow, pentium_slow, 386_prefetch. # cycles: Amount of instructions DOSBox tries to emulate each millisecond. # Setting this value too high results in sound dropouts and lags. # Cycles can be set in 3 ways: # 'auto' tries to guess what a game needs. # It usually works, but can fail for certain games. # 'fixed #number' will set a fixed amount of cycles. This is what you usually # need if 'auto' fails (Example: fixed 4000). # 'max' will allocate as much cycles as your computer is able to # handle. # Possible values: auto, fixed, max. # cycleup: Amount of cycles to decrease/increase with keycombos.(CTRL-F11/CTRL-F12) # cycledown: Setting it lower than 100 will be a percentage. core = dynamic cputype = auto cycles = max cycleup = 10 cycledown = 20 [mixer] # nosound: Enable silent mode, sound is still emulated though. # rate: Mixer sample rate, setting any device's rate higher than this will probably lower their sound quality. # Possible values: 44100, 48000, 32000, 22050, 16000, 11025, 8000, 49716. # blocksize: Mixer block size, larger blocks might help sound stuttering but sound will also be more lagged. # Possible values: 1024, 2048, 4096, 8192, 512, 256. # prebuffer: How many milliseconds of data to keep on top of the blocksize. nosound = false rate = 44100 blocksize = 1024 prebuffer = 25 [midi] # mpu401: Type of MPU-401 to emulate. # Possible values: intelligent, uart, none. # mididevice: Device that will receive the MIDI data from MPU-401. # Possible values: default, win32, alsa, oss, coreaudio, coremidi, none. # midiconfig: Special configuration options for the device driver.

and i have a *.sh fie that ruining the config of that before like that -
maddogmc.sh (in just the PC FOLDER)
#!/bin/bash /opt/retropie/emulators/dosbox/bin/dosbox -conf /opt/retropie/configs/pc/dosbox-SVN.conf -conf /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/pc/MADDOGMC/AUTOEXEC.BAT -exit
try add this files with the data inside , and run the *.sh file.
hope it will make it work ;)
/opt/retropie/emulators/dosbox/bin/dosbox -conf /opt/retropie/configs/pc/dosbox-SVN.conf -conf /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/pc/MADDOGMC/AUTOEXEC.BAT -exit
Thanks for the advice
unfortuly it didnt work the .sh file you advised ...
i dont know whats wrong with the sound in dosbox ...
i tried with
have u tired other games ?
that u got sound on the msdos ?
yeah i relized i didnt have sound in any other game ..
i only have
3 dosbox games
(all light gun games for those 3 consoles )
then i went to the audio setting in Retropie and selected default ...
i got my sound back in all games , except dosbox (no audio or sound )
i dont know if its my set up but all the audio is either choppy or cracking
but dosbox ... no sound at all
mad dog 1
mad dog 2

try delete the msdos config and reinstall it from scratch (just the msdos )
just saw u also have bugs on the psx and more...
yeha make a fresh pi image ;)
good luck :)
where is the ms dos config ?
yeah i might have bugs
i got my mame to work properly
psx runs fairly good .. except the audio / sound
dos works good except the sound audio
yeah i may need a fresh install
but its nice to take in all these tips and suggesting , i appreciate it
all of this folder pc remove it all and uninstall it and install again
Thank for the details
I actually ended up doing a fresh install last night before I went to sleep and I haven't installed anything yet
I will try it this morning and info you
One question I need to ask , I did notice no sound again with the fresh install
Should I click audio
( my tv is connected through HDMI )
its on my default in my pi .
Great news !!!!
after a fresh reinstall
the game works with sound ...
i seem to get this issue every time around the 3rd - 4rd stage
does this occur with yours when you play ?
any tips or advice ?

sorta off topic ... but, i just play the 3DO version of Mad Dog McCree with the lr-opera emulator (in Retropie 4.6 on RPI4)
Works fine, no complicated setup or problems ... just copy the iso/bin cue into the 3do folder, restart emulationstation and just play
Great Suggestion !!!!!
I really need to get a Pi 4 :)

I really need to get a Pi 4 :)
You'll be glad you did :) ... i got a Pi4 only a few weeks ago and am really happy with all the new games i can play on it compared to my Pi3 which couldn't or struggled to run.
I'm kinda partial to the original "Crime Patrol" ... 3DO version runs good, but the Sega Saturn Prototype "Crime Patrol" is even better ! shoot and reload is button A and B (no moving the gunsight down to the bottom of the screen to reload) ... a lot easier to play :)
didn't really finish level 1 ;)
