Mupen64Plus - No sound in Rareware games (non-libretro)
@mitu No, I've been using a logitech F310 gamepad
@Ashrill It seems you're running with the
sdl-audioplugin - can you try switching to the
omxplugin and see if that makes a difference ? Modify
/opt/retropie/configs/n64/mupen64plus.cfgand change the AudioPlugin configuration to
AudioPlugin = "mupen64plus-audio-omx.so"
then boot up again a game that doesn't work.
@mitu Thankyou! That seems to have solved the problem. Would there be any reason to switch back to SDL for some games or is OMX just generally better?

Why did SDL audio not work?
@Ashrill Franky I don't use N64 emulation that much, so I'm not familiar with the inner workings of the audio output in Mupen64Plus. The SDL audio should work - as it works for most people -, the only difference in your config is the manual installation. You could play with
aplayto check your sound card options/settings, but since you're only using HDMI and not an USB/external sound card, it shouldn't make a difference.
Check the default volume on the sound card with
alsamixer, maybe it's actually close to zero and, while the
lrcan use alsa directly to control it, maybe the SDL audio plugin in Mupen64plus doesn't.
EDIT: is there any reason you used the NOOBS option to install RetroPie instead of using the RetroPie image ? You can find one that supports the 3A+ at http://files.retropie.org.uk/images/weekly/retropie-4.4.8-rpi2_rpi3.img.gz .
@mitu I originally used this pi as a portable general purpose machine and didn't want to have the hassle of having either a separate SD card for Retropie or having to fiddle around getting my data and settings back to normal after re-imaging.
alsamixer was set to 100, so that doesn't seem to be the issue - OMX seems to be working fine so it's no problem if you're not sure about the cause of the SDL-audio problem.

Thanks for the new commands, this one is kind of cool.
alsamixer shows only one card:
while lowering the default volume does make it quiet, the libretro emulators are also quiet.
Noobs is an easy way to have a dual-boot and manage startup. But using retropie there isn't much of a reason to dualboot. Retropie should have a startup option to disable or select how you want to use your device.

@Ashrill just be aware save states will not function when using omx as the audio plugin. Also the default volume is insanely loud and can't be adjusted as far as I know.
