xenon 2 cdtv strange whistles

hi toni,
i tested xenon 2 cdtv with the last beta and it makes strange noises. during the intro after the alien say wellcome to xenon2 etc... etc .... you can hear a light whistle but during the game the whistle comeback frenquently when you take a bonus or just fire. it doesn't do it with winuae 2.3.3...
sorry but i had not time to test more winuae versions....
if you want hear very well the whistles set cdda volume to 0.
And strangely i can boot the game under cd32 emulation but not under cdtv.emulation but it was always the case by the past.
Just to say test it under cd32 emu and test the first stage whistles are stronger than during the intro.
tested like usual in cd32 quickstart mode best compatibility

You must boot to CDTV title screen and then insert the CD!
(same happens on real CDTV too)

I just came across this issue the other day of Xenon 2 not booting on CDTV mode, I was thinking maybe it was some bug seems not.

Toni, this is the same as specifying the ,delay argument through CLI right? I've used it before to run some CD32 games, but didn't know there were some tricky CDTV games as well. Does this happen with other CDTV games?
I know I couldn't boot Pinnocchio on CDTV mode for instance while it worked fine under CD32.

Yeah, it should work with Xenon 2 too.

I don't remember any other games. Another more boring solution is to enable more RAM

I just tried Pinnocchio (booted with CD already in "drive") and it seemed to work. (CDTV quickstart + best compatibility)

Just tested Xenon 2 and the delay switch does work fine too

lol Toni you are full of tricks, I tried with 8MB chip and Xenon 2 also booted, that's an interesting one.

No luck with Pinocchio though, I was wrong on my earlier post memory was a bit fuzzy sorry, the game does seem to boot fine, but it hangs at a black screen right after the Giunti intro. Doesn't that happen to you as well? Also using CDTV quickstart+best comp. Works fine under CD32 quickstart.
