I too have noticed sound problems in that game, and not just at the start either.

There's a 'victory fanfare' whenever you finish a battle, and this sounds very bad now, though it sounded perfectly normal in some old versions.

NB:
I most recently tested this sound effect in build 182 of PPSSPP v0.9.5, where it still sounds horrible, so the fixes mentioned above (build 96 etc) have not helped at all for this.

I will now download the current latest build and test this again, to see if there's any improvement in this sound effect, made after build 182, and then I'll report to this thread again with my new results (good or bad).

Best regards: dlanor

it work fine on latest build now but... FPS became 60/60 and my laptop can't handle that 60/60 is that normal? I think i remember i last play this game it 30/30 for sure maybe it broken somewhere? (use frameskip auto then it became 30/60 normal speed)

It does seem fine on some platforms, but not on all.

Since this thread is dedicated to a sound issue, I think it would be better for you to open a new thread for the issue of unexpected/wrong FPS.

----- Back to the main topic -----

I've now tested the sound effect I mentioned in my last post on several platforms using PPSSPP v0.9.5 build 213, and the problem remains in severe form on the OUYA, though it appears to have been fixed both for Win7 and my Android Tablet. The main sound effect tested in these tests is the battle victory fanfare in 'Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days'.

On the OUYA alone that sound effect (and several others) is badly broken, with parts of the sound playing with obviously wrong frequency and weird modulation. It's recognizable as a kind of fanfare still, but not at all similar to how it should sound, and still does sound on other platforms.

This is odd, since both the Tablet and the OUYA use variations of the 'Jelly Bean' Android version (4.1.1 and 4.1.2 respectively), and both use processors of the same family. But apparently something differs in the audio driver department...

As far as my testing is concerned the remaining sound issue is OUYA-specific.
(Though this is not certain. It may remain for other Android platforms too.)

I also want to emphasize that even for the OUYA this is a fairly NEW problem, introduced at the same time as the problem appeared for other platforms, but not fixed by the recent changes which fixed it for those other platforms.

Also problem with game Parasite Eve: The 3rd Birthday [ULES-01513] on PC. Ingame dialogs are stuttered. Everything works fine with PPSSPP v0.9.1.

Can confirm distorted voices and occasional cracks in fate/extra and ccc in 0.9.5. No problems in earlier versions.
