Tester jaw970 View Status Public Platform MAME (Official Binary)
Assigned To Resolution Open OS Windows 10 (64-bit)
Status [?] Confirmed Driver taitosj.cpp
Version 0.183 Fixed in Version Build 64-bit
Summary 06527: elevator: Elevator Action sound
Description Hello,

An MCU was recently added during last release as well. Perhaps this is the reason.

Game:
Elevator Action

driver:
taitosj

set:
elevator

MAME version:
Official 0.183 from official site

Issue:
- Insert coin sound and game music plays very loud
- Sound effects are very low.

Examples:
- During game's opening sequence, and throughout the game, the game's sound is very low
- During game play, when player jumps you cannot hear the jump sound (unless it's very low and I just cannot hear it).

Troubleshooting:
- deleted CFG and INI file
- deleted MAME and re-downloaded official mamedev.org

Thank you.
Jason

Not sure when the volumes got adjusted, but it was better in the past (at least from memory)

In some quick release binary testing, MAME 0.178 first shows these disproportionate volume levels for music/sound.

The dev had added MCU and sounds how if him is working in that driver.
DAC is very high.

Never noticed this before, But found the following values to sound ok.

0.5 ay1 (Ch0,1,2) = Start music
2.0 ay2 = Grapple Hook/Shot hit/Light drop/Jump/Squash/Door/Death tune
2.0 ay3 = Footsteps/Elevator/End tune
2.0 ay4 = Gun shot/Shot miss
0.5 DAC = Coin drop/Jump Attack

DAC using high values the sound is distorted. Less of 0.40 is good.
All others adjust are good and sounds how before when MCU was added.

I've played this game yesterday and I can confirm that the sounds are messed up. At the end of the level, when you jump in the car to leave the building, the sound volume is drastically reduced when the car is drifting.
