    No sound in pcsx emulator

    Hi guys. I got the pcsx emulator, everything is working just fine, except for the sound. I found the pcsx emulator from the playdeb site.

    The latest version of Ubuntu, 10.04. I have tried using different sound plugins, but they aing working. I have also tried 3 or 4 different games and still no sound. Do you think its my Graphics card? Cause I heard some GPU's werent compatable or something. I have a Radeon HD 4850. Also, im using my gpu for audio. I tried regular speakers, but still nothing.

    Also, off from the topic. I have the Snes9x installed, but it lags or stutters. Any way of improving the performance?

    I got audio problems too. Sometimes when I start a game there is sound...
    But sometimes there's none.

    I can get sound by starting the game, then hit Esc .. then resume the game again and again for a couple of times. Sometimes it works but most of the time it won't.

    Even if I did get the sound to work, it's choppy and irritating. Wonder what's wrong. It worked flawlessly back when I was still using Ubuntu 8.04...
    Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.

    i'd like to recommend for people to not use pcsx. it shouldn't have kept being used for quite a while. its development has been dead for a long time.

    i'd recommend pSX. it doesn't required plugins. best PS1 emulator imo.

    or, if you'd like to use plugins, try pcsxr. (it continues development of pcsx).

    Development on the various forks of pcsx has been slow but steady from what I've seen, the main branch is stale but this is no reason to dissuade its use.
    On the other side of this topic PSX hasn't been updated in atleast a year and still can not properly support pulseaudio which has become a staple of modern distros.

    A lot of people with integrated audio (mostly intel) currently can not and never have been able to run PSX.
    Epsxe and pcsx work perfectly fine in these cases and i more than adequate imho.

    i said pcsx NOT the branches. two different things.

    i have integrated audio (intel) on my current & last motherboards and have never had a problem with audio with pSX.

    Then you can safely consider yourself to not be in the "lots of people" group.
