    I'm trying to play Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, and I've heard there is a way to trick the emulater by messing with your mixer settings or something and playing music at maximum volume. Any help is appreciated, thanks [​IMG]

    Click the volume icon in your taskbar or access it in control panel and go to the settings for recording and set "stereo mix" as your input. turn up the input for whatever you're going to use and you can play a wav, mp3 or cd which will register as loud noise.

    Thanks alot! I got past the fortune teller part using this trick, I only hope this trick will work when I need the mic again to put some candles out.

    Yes.

    You could even plug ur headphones into the mic port without modding it at all.
    Use them and it works.... however the sound is very poor \ low quallity.

    @gokujr1000 it would have been my suggestion to but a speaker (and so headphones) work by turning a electrical signal into a magnetic field and moving a speaker head (and the cone it is attached to thus creating sound).
    Microphones work by taking the incoming air vibrations (sound) and moving a magnet creating an electrical response as a result.

    It is the same idea behind motors becoming dynamos and vice versa, naturally there are enhancements that can be made for both jobs so it is not going to be that good.
