Set midiconfig to 1 and run DOSBox with the \LISTMIDI argument and see which device is selected, if it's not the right one, set it to 2, etc, till you find it.

MIXER /LISTMIDI gives me

0 "Microsoft GS Wavetable SW Synth"

no matter if I set midiconfig to 0, 1 or 2. Munt is running. Started it manually

Is the mt32emu driver installed properly? Is it working or at least listed in Control Panel Audio Properties?

Is standalone Munt working? In my past experience QT apps don't work well if at all with Midi on 9x.

You could try to use the 9x compatible Munt VSTi by connecting it to DOSBox with a 9x compatible virtual Midi cable and a 9x compatible VST Host.

DOSBox > Midi Yoke > VSTHost with Munt VSTi > Audio Out

I pretty much guarantee this will work if properly configured.

I tried CHAMP-Ms-Pac-em 1996 and I get an error in SBEMUL.SYS, it appears that it is not compatible with WinME sound when setup with its automated configuration setup. It is a remake of Ms. Pacman 1982. Someone has rebuild the original to a 32 bit program in 2007 available here https://www.classic-retro-games.com/games/maze/ms-pacman-415 . In what looks like an inbuilt window called Free Download there is at the bottom, Download now: Ms Pacman, click on that.

Wizardry 8 is DRM free (not sure though mine was from Steam, Sir Tech went out of business, demo available) and runs with Miles sound system files. It always had a problem on exit that disables Direct Draw and is not KernelEx related. Wondering if Win98 has same problem, that is, after game is exited other games can not be played unless restarting Windows.

Will try that. Also got a Roland TR-8 MIDI drum device. Any chances to get it to work with Win98?

Roland TR-8 MIDI drum device: if it pugs into a game port there should be no problems, if it is USB then drivers will usually be required of which I do not think they would cater for Win98.
