    During an unforeseen accident with a trashy dangerous TC Doom mod( I didn't know) I soon found out that my prboom.CFG file was corrupted, only problem is I didn't have a backup for this file.. and I have no idea where I found It online but it was very random. Trying out many other .cfg files, all of them so far share the problem that when I fire the plasma weapon or the fighting gets too intense - the Sound-FX clocks out, becomes silent but the music FX plays just fine regardless.

    Can someone please help me resolve this/ share another .CFG file of equal quality to the one I used to have?

    Edit: Im assuming anyway that the sound-FX is tied to the prboom.cfg file, but I might have it wrong..

    Edit2: It is with this plasma gun and ONLY this plasma gun that this problem seems to occur.. Seriously, I have no idea what the hell the damage that TC chex quest file did. help please, someone..

    I even tried doing a fresh rebuild of retroarch + soundhax but the result was STILL the same - the sound fx clocks out or the game freezes when I fire the plasma rifle, and I used NONE of the files from my other SD card build save for 1 in case they were corrupted.. the only thing I can think of is that the 'Nintendo 3ds' folder itself contains something wrong with it now thanks to that accident... ? elhobbs build of prboom is WONDERFUL, but I cant figure out whats wrong with prboom..

    It has nothing to do with the mod. It is a bug in prboom3ds.
    Also - the cfg file can just be deleted. You will just need to redo your key bindings ( using the menu) - not a big deal.

    Hi again.. ok but if that's the case then how come before the accident with that garbage TC mod, the game ran smoothly after I added your files you recommended?.. Im wondering if you know where I can get a clean 'Nintendo 3ds' preinstalled file because im suspicious that the bug might have been saved somewhere in mine as data, because ive gone through everything I know of trying to fix this..

    Edit: Alright it wasn't that hard to delete all of that save-data in the preinstalled file.. the thing with prboom still happened regardless. Im just trying to explain though.. this never happened before until that accident, and now I cant shut off prboom and turn it on again even with the main-games like doom 2 without it crackling hard and shutting off like the mods would do sometimes.

    You said its a bug, is there a way or a patch to fix it?

    I don't understand the thing about the key bindings.. I redo it all the time out of necessity, but whats a big deal to me is that now I cant fire the plasma gun without it shutting off the fx sound. Often its been the only gun with enough ammo sometimes and its rapid fire speed is why it works so well..
