QBert Mame 182 sounds drugged
« on: February 15, 2017, 05:39:46 am »
Something weird happened when I updated my Mame install. I was on Mame 169, qbert sounded great. Mame 182, the sound is crackling, and the initial "Hello I am turned on" at start sounds very slow and drugged. I updated the sample file and still the same. Did Qbert break in the new Mame? Is there a way around it?

Because mamedev added discrete sound emulation and Votrax chip. Game rely now on emulation not on external samples (except one sample).

There's nothing you can do. It's still a W.I.P.

Heh.  Well that only took 20 years. ;)  Good job to them.

Thanks for the tip. I'll have to use 169 on my arcade till they fix it. Don't fix what ain't broken :)

Technically it was broken though and now it is closer to being fixed, so that philosophy doesn't really apply.

I was doing some work trying to upgrade my Groovymame and noticed the same issue. I made a patch to revert it back to the old samples so I can play it while they are still working on the new votrax code. You will need the old samples. I have only tried this with plain mame and groovymame v186 but it probably works with the current version at this time (v189).
