Confirmed in mslug. The "Go!" sound as well as the bonus item get sound (not weapon get) are too loud and somewhat disorted

The problematic component is SSG of YM2610, they are Ch.0 in the UI volume setting.

If I set both right and left channels more than 1.0, all sounds (including FM) are not output from MAME and it causes clipping on my Windows XP PC sound (not MAME).

This should be fixed in 0125.

It does not seem to be perfectly fixed in 125.

Case in point: play Garou in survival mode (hold abcd while pressint start on main menu). During this game mode, orbs pop up as you fight, with bonus or negative effects.

The sound that plays when you pick up these orbs were all wrong in 124u5. In 125, the powerups have correct sound, but the power-downs (the dark orbs with the skull on them) still play a broken sound effect.

Please try the following:

Disable mute all sound subchannel within the gui with the exception of the "*.0" channels (this is the YM2610 analog output). Play the game. Do the powerdowns play at all?

Than reenable all sound channels and use -wavwrite to create a wav,. In addition please note the time when the "power-down" sound plays. Than please attach the wav-file.

Garou: Mark of the Wolves (shortname: garou) is a game in the NeoGeo driver?
