#1 Updated by JMC4789 about 2 years ago

Emulated or Real Wiimotes? What did you set the TimingVariance to?

#2 Updated by JMC4789 about 2 years ago

I did some testing on this, Wiimote audio definitely sounds slightly different. It seems less likely to cut off/lag sounds and more likely to delay them. I'll test on more setups to see if I can discover any other quirks.

#3 Updated by JMC4789 about 2 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Accepted
  • Assignee set to degasus
  • Priority changed from Normal to High

Confirmed on my DolphinBar; the audio definitely performs worse. Originally thought I was connected to my bluetooth adapter.

#4 Updated by JMC4789 about 2 years ago

  • Status changed from Accepted to Questionable

And then I restarted Dolphin and it performed way better on the new build. What. Still keeping high priority as WTF. Turns out I inadvertently had connected to my DolphinBar the first time rather than my regular bluetooth adapter. DolphinBar definitely is performing worse, but is this a flaw in that hardware, or in Dolphin itself? Things definitely aren't right yet.

#5 Updated by rancourttommylee about 2 years ago

you want proof?

#6 Updated by JMC4789 about 2 years ago

So, the better bluetooth I have actually performs really well with the update; better than the build before it, actually. On my DolphinBar, it's way worse than before the update. So, I don't know what to do with the issue.

Did I ask for proof? I said that I reproduced a difference in behavior.

#7 Updated by degasus about 2 years ago

This commit should have no affect with real wiimote, at least if you keep the default variance.

But it has an affect on emulated wiimote audio. So which are you talking about?

#8 Updated by JMC4789 about 2 years ago

It seems to change the behavior of Real Wiimote audio for me.

#9 Updated by rancourttommylee about 2 years ago

I talk about real wiimote

#10 Updated by rancourttommylee about 2 years ago

excuse me but I made a mistake made by me I do not remember what version, but I can show you proof

#12 Updated by hk.konpie about 2 years ago

Please someone test this patch. Probably this issue will be improved.

Line 232 in WiimoteReal.cpp:
if (!is_speaker_data || m_last_audio_report.GetTimeDifference() > 5)
Replace to:
if (!is_speaker_data || m_last_audio_report.GetTimeDifference() >= 5)

Sorry my bad english.

#13 Updated by degasus about 2 years ago

Why should it be >= 5? To be honest, I don't see any need to not send all audio packages...

#14 Updated by rancourttommylee about 2 years ago

you could create my patch, patch me for me and please send me to test

#15 Updated by rancourttommylee about 2 years ago

all I can tell you this is my Bluetooth version is 4.0

#16 Updated by rancourttommylee about 2 years ago

i have toshiba bluetooth stack

#17 Updated by hk.konpie about 2 years ago

Oops, my comment 12 was unrelated to this issue directly.
Please ignore my comment.

#18 Updated by rancourttommylee about 2 years ago

work good on 3.5-173 for wiimote -TR the wiimote non -TR Do not work good the audio very crackling

#19 Updated by degasus about 2 years ago

konpie: I think you are very right. Changing this lines make the audio much better... I'm just thinking about removing this line completely...

#20 Updated by rancourttommylee about 2 years ago

the sound of a wiimote uses how kbit / s max?
                 I'd like to know please

#21 Updated by rancourttommylee about 2 years ago

work good on dolphin 4.0-8390 on wiimote -TR except for wiimotes non -TR the audio are very crackling

#22 Updated by JosJuice about 2 years ago

  • Status changed from Questionable to Fixed
  • Regression changed from No to Yes

Marking as fixed because the regression is fixed. For non-TR Wii Remotes, there's issue 5977.
