Glitchy audio in Launchbox with box-art music.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi Folks,

I am noticing that when I click on each game-cart (snes in this example) the audio for the game music that plays is really scratchy and

clicky. It sounds distorted almost. Launchbox has loads of options and I'm really not sure if there is a way to change anything that might help.

My audio drivers in Windows10 are fine. Music, games and other audio outside of emulation is fine too.

 

Is there anything I can do. Sounds like the game music isn't playing right or not set properly. Are there any options in that regards?

 

Cheers,

Have you played the mp3 files outside of Launchbox, like in VLC or Windows Media Player? Do they sound ok there?

Where about's is the location for the various mp3 files. I'll give it a try...

 

Thanks

Many thanks. Well, seems this issue is not on all game music. I played one in particular that was giving me issues (Super Castlevania IV) for the SNES. Playing the mp3 in Foobar2000 does exact same thing. The beginning sounds crackly and distorted, just like in Launchbox.

Game music for other titles is not giving the same issue. Only a select few. I'm beginning to think now this is an mp3 issue. It's the song's themselves.

Yeah, I had an issue where some of the mp3 files from Emumovies were bad. This sounds like a similar issue. You can replace the mp3 files to resolve that issue I guess.

Yep, might just do that. Guess things can't be perfect all the time. Thanks for your help Charco. It's a great program. I just wish it was a bit more easier to setup. RetroArch is even worse for me. Bit over the top in the options dept lol.

 

Cheers,

No problem, if you have any questions setting stuff up don't be afraid to ask here on the forums or in the Launchbox Discord server.
