Donkey Kong and Kong Jr. MAME Question
« on: October 27, 2020, 03:23:01 pm »
This Donkey Kong and Kong Jr. MAME issue for me has been driving me nuts for some time. The MAME rom I have of Donkey Kong and Kong Jr. games output slightly different sounds from the original game we all know and love. How am I able to get those sounds correct? The MAME version I use is 0.152. I've got the correct sounds placed in the correct folder but those sounds do not work. What can I do to finally resolve this?

I am using an older version of Hyperspin fyi.

Those sample files you have are for much older MAME versions that didn't support analog sound emulation for Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Junior. They're not usable in 0.152, as that was released long after analog sound emulation support was implemented. It's not possible for the end user to make the sounds more accurate to that of the PCB. You'll either have to use an older MAME version + the old sample files, or you'll have to settle for the inaccurate analog sounds of newer MAME versions.
PBs:
Donkey Kong - 1,032,100 (22-1)
Donkey Kong Junior - 79,400 (4-2)
Donkey Kong 3 - 344,200 (Stage 22)
Crazy Kong Part II - 645,400 (22-4)

I'd suggest either upgrading your MAME version to 0.106 or 0.220
You'll also need to update your ROM set to that version.  If you have trouble with the ROM set, PM me and I can show you de way.
