Sound 7 sec. after graphics

Hello evryone. I'm totally new in this forum so maybe I ask a question that's already been answered before.
I have a Pentium 400 with 256 MB and a TNT2 videocard ( DON'T LAUGH !). When I load a game with WinUAE the graphics are ok
(40-45 fps) but the sound is much too late. So when I shoot several robots with Ruff'n'Tumble (excellent game!), I hear nothing. Then after a couple of seconds I hear the shootings and the explossions. Is this a common problem ? Is it possible with my pc configuration to emulate the graphics and sound at the same time ?



(backround info: I'm 26 and always loved the Amiga. My first one was a Amiga 500+, then the 1200. I've had lots of games and my favourites were and are: Cannon Fodder, SWOS, Great Courts2, Mortal Kombat, Body Blows, Superfrog, Ruff'N'Tumble, and many, many more)

I know this might sound a bit harsh but.... Upgrade your PC, it isn't upto perfect emulation with sound and everything else!!

(Turn sound off and you might get 50fps!!)

Exactly. The bigger the sound buffer, the bigger the sound lag.

:kill
actually... try increasing/decreasing.

When I get a sound lag I set the buffersize to 4 and it usually works great! But that's maybe because I have a relatively fast computer.

Also try to reduce the freq.

Reducing the sound buffer too much on a P400 machine might actually cause the sound to get really choppy, so be careful with this tip!
I know what I'm talking about (P133 -> K6-266 -> K6-III-450 -> Athlon TB).

something to your remark from the first post:
People who would LAUGH about other people's low-performance PCs are, to my opinion, wretched assholes and might as well jump in a lake. So don't rack your brains too much about your machine.
