So I finally downloaded and extracted the mame4all_1.0_samples.zip file, and now I am finally getting sounds in Frenzy and Berzerk. It’s about 90% complete I’d say. There is no sound, for instance, when your player is vaporized – and sometimes the shots don’t make any sound.
What I can’t figure out is this exact same ROM, running on OPENEMU on my Mac, has perfect sound with no sample directory or sample files!
Is it just that mame4all is older and doesn’t know how to create the sounds from these early Stern games and has to rely on samples? I would think that if one emulator running these ROMs can generate the sounds natively that mame4all would too.
