Donkey Kong Sound

Post by Cjoli » Thu Jun 13, 2019 1:15 am

Hi, I know this has been discussed a bit, but does anyone have a recommendations for the Donkey Kong roms? I am going to be building a DK cab from scratch and I want to run an Arpicade in it with just DK variants, I currently have DK, DKjr, DK2 and DK3 in my MS Pac cab and they all have sound issues, a steady tick/crackle ever couple of seconds. I forget which roms I am using I think 192 but I have to look again, wanted to see what the reconditions are to get as accurate as possible?

If you still have 192 upgrade to the current ARpiCADE and use MAME0.203, as far as I know it's the most accurate sounding one (based on other peoples opinions).

Regular ticks or crackles could be a video timing issue, are you running vertical or horizontal monitor? I will take a look, was going to add in a hack for DKRemix variations anyway...

For DK3 use AdvMAME, if the sound is bad check if you have these lines in /home/pi/.advance/advmame.rc:
dkong3/sound_adjust 5
dkong3/sound_normalize no

Thanks dee2eR, I am running the latest build but I think it was the first version when the 203 folder was still named 192, is the very latest version different?

I think the 203 rom folder has been 203 for a release or 2 now. Latest ARpiCADE is 3.84 found here: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1062 (the downloads page on the main site is very out of date as I cannot update it.)
