I'm having a problem with the voices during the cut scenes in Spyro 2. They start playing fine and then skip repeatedly, sometimes cutting off entirely. Also, if I load a save state there's no sound at all. I've used a brand new copy of the game from both CD-Rom and ISO, as well as a friend's copy (the same way,) and the problem persists. I have the problem with every plugin I've tried (P.E.O.P's 1.8, ePSXe core, and Eternal 1.41,) as well as with every version of ePSXe I've tried. I have the problem regardless of what settings I set the SPU to. I also have the problem regardless of what BIOS I use, and changing my DirectX Sound Acceleration level has no effect either.

I'm using a Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS. Updating my sound drivers had no effect.

The compatibility page listed this game as 100% perfect, and I can get some of the most problem-prone games working in ePSXe usually with no sweat... so is there something I've missed?

well first of all, that's a known problem with save states (MGS is the most notable example of that..no sound works at all when you load a state).

what video plugin are you using? if the game is slowing down, then the sound could get messed up.

No, the game is as fast as it can be. Its only the voices during cutscenes... in game sound effects are fine.

many games get messed up if you don't run it at the proper speed. do you have the frame limiter on and set to the correct amount?
