    some games (bust a move series) do require gliden64 emulator to work (no audio crackling). However, by switching to that option, only yellow screen is initially displayed, and some weird graphics (white lines on black BG), That is all.

    How can this be solved?

    Another problem: MAME emulator, golden axe 2 game. Again, crackling sound. Changing audio driver to sdl2 or tinyalsa and adding latency, does not solve it.
