lr-genesis-plus-gx master system sound garbled after restoring save states - all games affected
If I play master system games using lr-genesis-plus-gx sound and music are perfect except for when restoring save states when it becomes completely garbled and unlistenable. This is the same for every game.
Can anyone advise how to rectify this please?
The sound is perfect but every single save state once loaded has corrupted sound - can anyone advise please?
Please don't bump your posts. You've added no info about which version of RetroPie/system you're using - please add some context, as requested in https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first.
@mitu Apologies. I am running 4.7.1 on a Rasperry Pi 4

Please fill out the rest of the info.
You've said all games are affected, but I have tested
genesis-plus-gxand cannot reproduce your issue. I'm using the latest version and I have updated from source. I have tried both MD/Genesis and SMS games, I don't see any issue after loading a save state.
@mitu I'm also using the latest version and have updated from source.
I must add that I am running the games using the 'Nuked' sound option for Master System as opposed to MAME - Nuked is much better sounding in my opinion.
The sound is perfect for all games yet when I restore a saved state for all games the sound is then very quiet and garbled.
Thank you for your help with this.
I don't think it's the FM implementation choice makes a difference - I've changed that while testing and didn't make a difference.
You can reset the options to default just to see if it affects the save states (but create a new save state afterwards). Open the options file and remove any lines starting with
@mitu Removing the lines in the options file didn't change the results
I must add that in order to reproduce the sound issue with save states you need to save the state then exit the game and reload the save state. Saving and reloading the save state in the current game doesn't cause any sound issues however one needs to be able to restore a save state after playing a different game, playing another day etc.
In my tests I've reloaded the saves after changing the options and restarting the game/going back to EmulationStation. I can't see any issues with the saves.
Can you upload one of your problematic saves somewhere to see if it loads differently here ? Add a verbose log, as requested previously.
@mitu I deleted the lines starting with genesis_plus_gx from the options file but the strange thing is all the settings I had before remain. Is there a duplicate somewhere else that needs editing too please?

If you saved options for the folder/game, these are saved in a separate file and take precedence over the global options. That's why I asked for a verbose log. Note that your issue might not be related to the core's options, but it's something to try just to see if a non-default configuration is responsible.
@mitu my controller won't allow me to select the option run game with verbose log - it works fine for the game and for the front end just not when i get to that blue screen. please can you advise? I cant just plug a new controller in as the pi is in a custom case that it would be very hard to open up
please can you advise?
