MAME 2003+ Audio Samples?

Some of the games I start with this core give me an error about “Audio sample(s) not found”.

At the moment, I’m using to load Donkey Kong. I’ve never seen this error before and I didn’t find an answer searching online. MAME has always confused me as well, so I don’t know what to do.

DK is making a god awful noise though and I want it to stop lol.

Back in 2003, instead of actually emulating the sound hardware, MAME loaded recorded samples. I believe for dkong, they go into system/mame2003/samples/dkong/

Ah, good to know! Thanks, I’ll have to see if I can track some down.
