Getting old DOS games working. (DOSBox topics belong in DOSBox areas below, not here).

Busytown on DOS freezes when playing it from Windows 3.1 on PCem.

Hey people. It's me. I am trying to get a game that I used to play when I was very young on Windows 10

I was trying to play Busytown from 1993 on DOS by playing it from the Windows 3.1 GUI on PCem. And on only in a matter of 50 seconds or more it freezes, hangs or crashes or whatever. And it even takes me back into Windows 3.1.

I don't know what made it crash or, was it the machine, grahics card or soundcard that I was emulating or something?

Here is my footage.

Here is my autoexec.bat
SET SOUND=C:\SB16
SET BLASTER=A220 I7 D1 H5 P330 T6
SET MIDI=SYNTH:1 MAP:E
C:\SB16\DIAGNOSE /S
C:\SB16\SB16SET /P /Q
C:\DOS\SMARTDRV.EXE
@ECHO OFF
PROMPT $p$g
PATH C:\WINDOWS;C:\DOS
SET TEMP=C:\DOS
C:\DOS\MOUSE.COM

C:\QMAX\386load size=77168 prgreg=2 prog=MSCDEX /D:MSCD001 /V
REM winmaxim~~~~~~~~~~~~~


And my config.sys
DEVICE=C:\SB16\DRV\CSP.SYS /UNIT=0 /BLASTER=A:220
DEVICE=C:\SB16\DRV\CTSB16.SYS /UNIT=0 /BLASTER=A:220 I:7 D:1 H:5
DEVICE=C:\SB16\DRV\CTMMSYS.SYS
FILES=40
rem text mode
rem DEVICE=C:\DOS\emm386.exe i=a000-afff i=b000-b7ff x=b800-bbef X=C000-C7ff i=c800-cfff i=d000-dfff i=e000-efff noems
rem graphics mode
Device=c:\qmax\386max.sys pro=c:\qmax\386max.pro
device=C:\DOS\SETVER.EXE
DOS=HIGH
REM ** FILES=30
DEVICE=C:\QMAX\386load.sys size=11264 prog=C:\CDPRO\VIDE-CDD.SYS /D:MSCD001
Stacks=0,0
REM MAXIMIZE: ExtraDOS must come at the end of CONFIG.SYS
Device=C:\QMAX\ExtraDOS.max pro=C:\QMAX\ExtraDOS.PRO
Install=C:\QMAX\ExtraDOS.max

If you know what could be the problem please let me know and find a solotion on what I could do.
