Quoted from harryhoudini:

Ok, folks, the moment you've all been waiting for.
POTC powering on: https://photos.app.goo.gl/28fSx9mUEW3kqFWM7
WOZ powering on: https://photos.app.goo.gl/8xN1dyyWe2b5hBEG8
Aside from the WOZ pop (and fans, lol) it has NO feedback on start. I am guessing you can all hear the POTC startup "fanfare".


Yea...that's pretty crazy...

I was hoping the audio would be better in general in 0.99, but I guess we’ll see soon enough.

To be clear, we don't really "care" about the initial pop, correct?

Quoted from harryhoudini:

The pop is common on many games. It has to do with how the amp/sound board gets power. It is possible to eliminate and the solution I have in mind would do that. Not sure my solution will eliminate the pop when turning off the game, might need to build a custom PCB for that.

I know...but you're trying to more solve all the other crazy noises that you have right?

Yeah, that's the main goal. I was hoping JJP was going to take some responsibility for it, but they seem to suggest it's normal. I find it weird that a high end game like this should have that kind of "noise", it makes it feel cheap. Sure, operators don't care and the public doesn't either but I turn my game on and off daily and I have to hear it. Plus this should cure the pop for anyone else so might be a nice solution.

I absolutely 100% agree with you.

On a machine this expensive (or even less expensive), it "should not" be a problem. Period.

It's ridiculous that it is.

I get it!

I still have the pops. One “easy” suggestion is to simply unplug one of the cables in the backbox.

I just haven’t done this yet.

It won’t hurt to try. I have regular pops from the audio during gameplay which is really annoying.

No pops to speak of when using headphones.

Ah yeah, that's only for power on pops. Can't believe JJP hasn't solved that for you. Probably need a new motherboard or audio board.

Yea I sorta stopped pursuing it. Maybe I still can.
