No sound in HLE(fast)

Enter a description of your issue here, in full detail.
Whenever I play pokemon x with HLE(fast) the game runs normally but without music… there is still sound fx but no music. When I switch to another sound setting like LLE and the other option the game gets too laggy that it is unplayable.

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU. You need to install the most recent driver for your graphics card from NVIDIA’s website. Download Drivers | NVIDIA
  • LLE Audio is designed for debugging purposes. Using this option will slow down your game. Try changing to HLE audio.

What is your exact Windows 10 version? Open winver to find out.

Audio.DSP <Critical> audio_core/hle/wmf_decoder.cpp:Impl:44: Unable to load mf.dll. AAC audio through media foundation unavailable
Audio.DSP <Warning> audio_core/hle/hle.cpp:Impl:146: Unable to load any decoders, this could cause missing audio in some games

I will assume you have Windows 10 N version which doesn’t include the Media Feature Pack by default, you will have to install it manually: Download Windows 10 Media Feature Pack

I have Windows 10 pro N 20h2 with the os build of 19042.867 and It doesn’t show my version on the drop list menu so I went to Media Feature Pack list for Windows N editions and followed the instructions on Media Feature Pack for Windows 10 N (October 2020)

After installing the Media Feature Pack what do I do?

Try your game. It should’ve installed the necessary dependencies for you to have sound again in Citra. If that isn’t the case, please upload another log file.
