>release does not really sound good when playing mdec
Perhaps you should try downgrading a version? Because of a few silent MDECs I faced in FF9, I followed someone's instructions and went with the previous version instead. I can't say I've ever noticed any sort of poor quality during MDEC playback. Have you checked all your settings?
The current version 1.35 when playing mdec is very skippy tried it with crono cross and vagrant story, mdec skippy, also tried petes spu plugin with no problem but nullz spu still sound better so i prefer to use it regarding the downgrade to lower version, i dont want to use older version of the plugin cause only version 1.35 supports savestates.
None of the Null 1.3x series works with Chrono Cross on my SBLive. Null 1.2 provides the best quality sound of all options, but it frequently freezes during MDEC's. Defaulting to the built-in plugin works fine, but some of the sounds are emulated poorly.
It's a bit of a compromise, I'm afraid. Still, hail to Null, wherever the hell he has gone -- the sound in 1.2 is just phenomenal. :innocent:
