Summary 01208: pzloop2: [possible] Sound effects only play on the left audio channel.
Description I've noticed that in pzloop2 (also pzloop2j) sound effects only play on the left audio channel (music plays from both channels). The behavior should be verified using a real cart.

Probably intended behavior, related to #02209

Not happening anymore since mame 0.201
Fixed
- 0.201: Q-Sound: Added device_clock_changed [smf]. Saturate ROM offsets (sound\qsoundhle.cpp). Apply ADPCM sample bank (sound\qsound.cpp) [superctr]. Added improved qsound_hle core. Use ROM lookups instead of copying tables at init and use enums for most DSP ROM addresses. Replacing memset at the cost of legibility (sound\qsoundhle.cpp). Fixes awful buzz sound noise in the Super Street Fighter series [Lord Nightmare]. Removed EEPROM MCFG macros [Ryan Holtz].

Tried this with mame 0.205 and sound effects only come out of the left speaker, as the bug report says. Music works fine.

I recommend using headphones to see the difference since mame 0.201.

This definitely still happens and if it doesn't, it's probably because you forced the game into mono output in the config menu or otherwise changed the nvram contents.

I don't think it's an emulation bug though, the logs show that the games do write a value to DSP registers which correspond directly to left panning in the lookup table.
