    I'm using v1.21 of the GBA emulator with the gameconfig.txt in the right place. All of my GBA games run great, except there's one, little problem. Every second or so, there are these crackling, tinny noises that happen. They're mostly masked by the sounds of the game, but if you listen close, you can hear them all the same. I don't have any problem with sound when I'm running NDS games, so I was wondering if this is a problem with the GBA emulator or GBA game playback in general. Would changing any of the emulator settings fix this? I currently have them all set to the default.

    P.S. This is on a DSTWO with all firmware/EOS updates and a class-10 sd card.

    This happens when you change the Frame Skip Type setting to manual. Change it to "Auto" and set Frame Skip Level to "2".

    I believe I have the frame skip setting on Auto and the amount of frames skipped set to 2. I've tried messing around with the other emulator settings, but every configuration I try ends with the same weird, sound glitches.

    Then update to version 1.30.

    Just finished updating to v1.30; although, the cracking noises are still present.

    What games do you play specifically?

    I've been running quite a few GBA games recently, but I've spent the most time with Metroid: Fusion and The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. Every single GBA game I've tried runs flawlessly, minus this strange audio glitch that they all share.

    Ah, I hear it now, too. It's very a very subtle and very quiet noise. Unfortunately there is no known fix.

    Ah, alright. I'm glad it wasn't just my mind playing tricks on me. Bummer that there's no fix for it, so I guess I'll just have to grin and bear it. Thank you for all your help, though. [​IMG]
