Slow XGA playback on PAL

Post by matteus » Wed Sep 06, 2017 8:02 pm

Hi,
Just wanted to report that people playing XGA on my FMVs on PAL systems are experiencing slow playback :(

Is this a known bug? Or is there some sort of flag for PAL systems?

Try this:

XGM_setMusicTempo(60);

To test you can modify your header temporarily to just have "E" in region, then emulators should run it at 50hz.

Is there a known issue with the driver itself?

Z80_loadDriver() sets the tempo lower on PAL

Code: Select all

            // define default tempo
            if (IS_PALSYSTEM) SND_setMusicTempo_XGM(50);
            else SND_setMusicTempo_XGM(60);

Is this to make up the difference between those files specifically converted to XGM from PAL format?
