Mario Bros. walking sound Fix! (Maybe)

Post by flcl64 » November 18th, 2016, 3:39 am

So, a well known problem is that the walking sounds in Mario Bros. is about 10x louder than every other sound effect and doesn't sound like an arcade machine. I might have found a fix!

I changed the sample rate to 94440 in the ini file and turned the tone knob on my speakers about half way. I was listening to the sounds coming from an actual machine on youtube and comparing and I'm impressed with the improvement! It changed the tone of walking and sliding and made the sounds much more in line with the music and jumping sounds volume-wise.

I hope this helps a lot of people out, cause I know I've looked all over google for solutions and only found complaints. Try it for yourselves and let me know if it changed anything for you!
