#258 Final Fantasy IV Advance SFX bug


When in a battle in Final Fantasy IV Advance, the sound effect for an enemy damaging me with a physical attack won't play at all.

I'm using VBA version I've reproduced this problem with several VBA versions with several different copies of the game, from both my saved game file as well as new game, with just about every possible variation of sound settings - and tried restarting my computer as well just to be sure. Config file is attached.

I just started using VBA on this computer and transferred my old saves to this computer, so I've probably played for less than an hour, but I know that this sound effect was being made when I started's not an issue with my sound card. I believe one of the times I was playing, it made the sound effect one battle but not the next. I can no longer get the sound effect at all. Using Windows 7.

    More seems that the only sound comes from Channel 2 (low bass notes) and Direct Sound B (all the rest of the music and all sound effects too). Not sure if it was like this before when the physical attack sound effect was working.
