1) I'm having serious issues with terrible sound and music reproduction in Final Fantasy 7. This affects both FMV sounds and in-game sounds. Music notes are chopped off and in-game sounds are terribly emulated.
My phone is a rooted Droid X running Liberty 1.5. Speed of gameplay does not seem to be related to the slow or inaccurate sound reproduction, as the game will continue to run at a very fast speed while the sound chops and lags. Please understand that I am very happy with the product thus far, but since these sound troubles were shrugged off in previous posts, I want to make sure that they don't go unaddressed.
For reference, I am running a .bin/.cue version of the game. I tried the fix posted earlier, by setting Frameskip to 40 FPS and turning on SPU Sync. This made no difference at all.
EDIT: I just tested the ROMs out with PSX4Droid. The sound reproduction is near perfect with the same ROMs (despite PSX4Droid running them at its usual snail's pace). So now I know that the ROMs aren't the problem.
Very interested by your post dabomb.
1. I'm having the exact same issue. It's like, you know how the music should sounds, but parts of it aren't played right? Like certain notes/octives aren't hit in the music? So it seems choppy hollow.
2. My phone isn't rooted and I'm having those issues. Phrozen's phone is rooted and he's not having those issues. Your phone is rooted and you're having those issues. We were surmising earlier that the sound may be related to the fact that his phone was rooted with Liberty and that helped improve performance. Are your game/bios files on your SD card or on your phone memory?
3. Changing the frameskip to 40 and turning on SPUSync had the same results for me as well.
