Tried it with a single core and no issues. CPU load is around 12%.

Re: Glitchy Audio

Munte 2.4.1 was released yesterday. No binary. Only the source code so can't test it.

Re: Glitchy Audio

Never mind. I figured it out. I'm using Munt 2.3.0 and that fixes the sound issue. :)

Re: Glitchy Audio

Do you think that he can use a recent ScummVM, with external munt (instead of using the built-in), and install an old enough munt version? Should it solve his problem? Yes. That would be my suggestion for those experiencing the issue if they are on a platform for which external munt is available. T...

Re: Glitchy Audio

I'm currently using ScummVM 2.0.0 and MT-32 emulation is still fine. I also checked CPU usage and it's only 13%.

With ScummVM 2.1.2 the MT-32 emulation starts to be glitchy and it's worse with ScummVM 2.2.0.

Re: Option to copy and run game from memory

I've tried it with ImDisk Toolkit and that fixes the issue. 8)

Re: Glitchy Audio

Tested with ScummVM 1.9.02 and MT-32 emulation is crystal clear like I thought it was. Looks like there is an issue with the sound and the new stable build.

Re: Glitchy Audio

I did some more testing on my device that gives me audio glitches and for me it only happens with MT-32 emulation or FluidSynth with large soundfonts. Everything else seems to sound just fine with latest stable build. I haven't used this device for a long time but I needed to replace the old battery...

Re: Option to copy and run game from memory

No. I didn't try that. I only tried to find a way to stop it from going in to power saving mode. I don't even know how this feature got added to Mednafen but maybe some of the developers also had this issue and wanted to deal with this with copy the game to the memory to run it. There was also a guy...

Re: Option to copy and run game from memory

Trust me. I've tried everything and it's impossible to stop it from going in power save mode. If it was possible someone would've found a fix for it a long time a go because I.m not alone with this issue.

Re: Option to copy and run game from memory

Thank you for this straight answer. I know this shouldn't be needed in every application but this issue has been going on for years and probably many years will follow. We don't even know if it's a Microsoft issue or an Intel one. it might as well be an issue with the Intel controller or driver. Nob...

Re: Option to copy and run game from memory

Not sure what you're trying to prove here. But none of that works. That''s the reason why a developer wrote a small application to write every 30 seconds to the drive to keep it from going in sleep mode. I asked him why not just read from the drive and he told me that's not possible because of Windo...

Re: Option to copy and run game from memory

Disable sleep does only work for HDD. How many devices still use HDD? The only thing that does work is using some kind of application to write to the drive so the drive doesn't go in to sleep mode. To give you an example. Try to play Beneath a steel sky (talkie version) from a USB drive or MicroSD c...

Option to copy and run game from memory

What about an option to copy the game content to the memory to run it? This what Mednafen has added to fix read speed issues. Windows ( and maybe other OS) has the habbit to put the disks in sleep mode for power saving. The only way to work around this is to copy the game content to the memory to ru...
