I've just started using Dolphin and the first game I tried is Pikmin 2. Perfectly playable but the engine skips on a bunch of sound effects and even music. How's Xenoblade holding up with the 2 plugins available? (DSP HLE & DSP LLE)

I'd just hate missing on the full experience

Its near perfect. You'll still get some sound issues here and there like random crackling and stuff but its never to the point where it just makes the game not enjoyable. just check out the dolphin fourms if you need help with some fixes.

Having some problems. Cut scenes have crackly audio which I may have fixed since I last tinkered with options. Skimming there doesn't seem to be a 100% fix.

I also get the crackling audio. Which is strange since I played 6 hours before it ever happened and now it happens pretty frequently. As said before it isn't earth shattering, but if anyone has some suggestions to fix it, I'd welcome them.

There's an audio patch someone made for the JP version that works for the PAL version.

I downloaded and tried the patched dolphin from there since I dunno how to add the patch and I still get the buggy sound.

I've read that your CPU speed has a lot to do with it. I'm currently running an i5 2500k OC'd to 4.5GHz, what is your CPU?

Seemed to be a simple fix, just use LLE audo(middle-option) instead of HLE. You'll never get the crackling, the audio just skips a beat every now and then. No big deal. I run a i7 920 @3.8ghz.

My dolphin periodically crashes with wii games like this one, but no audio problems. I get the crackling sounds very often on the gc games though.
