|Summary||08295: ridgerac & clones: sound hangs during Game Over speech.|
In "Ridge Racer" 1 & 2 (various versions?) during the spoken game over message there is a looped noise sample (varies with selected level?, sounds sometimes like a loud old harddisk motor) in the background for about 2 seconds. It sounds like it shouldn't be there (it is as loud as the speech), so it is likely no normal game behaviour.
I suspect that a volume or envelope control register of the sound hardware for muting/fading it out is not emulated properly.
|Steps To Reproduce||Play until game over and listen to the spoken message.|
|Affected Sets / Systems||ridgerac & clones|
|There are no relationship linked to this issue.|

I've seen some youtube videos of the game over screen in ridge racer and there's no voice there and not the bug you're reporting.
This could be a regression.
Have you tested any older version of mame?

MAME was newest (0.242) and the speech works well (says something like "Hurry, come on and try again... You'l do it next time!"). There is only a hanging loop sample in the background during this for some seconds (which is a minor flaw that barely disturbs the game).
On youtube I only see videos of people finishing the race. I did not reach beyond the 2nd lap, so my game ended without winning when it does those sounds.

|On "novice" level I now finished (place 4) which does a different ending (short rhythmic music, without the faulty noise?).|
