I've used always tepples solution with one difference: enabling the writing of 4011 after 110 cycles (APU) from last write other than a few frames. I chose 110 after several trials with different values​​. With small values, some games still do pop and with higher values, other games were cut effects of the DMC.
I believe to have found a way to avoid pops without hacks. ;) Works flawlessly, hehehe.

Well done Zepper. Can I ask you how did it? Don't worry, I was forced to steal one idea for month and, thanks to tepples, I'm ok for november. :wink:

Timed writes to $4011 register (raw) are ignored if the silence flag is set. The register still accepts the value written, it's just not sent to the dac.

Read here.

UPDATE: looks like Q has tested it in the Visual6502. Unfortunately, it doesn't exist, so take it as a trick while emulating $4011 register/output.

I tried it with Zap Ruder and LJ65, and the music was about a semitone flat. There were a few missed low notes in LJ65's "TEMP" song too. Zapper emulation was good enough to play ZapPing, but it appears to have no way to cover up the photosensor (e.g. Duck Hunt shoot offscreen to select, various games shoot offscreen to reload), and it doesn't appear to turn off the photosensor when I move the mouse out of the window.

Many thanks for the reports tepples. I've found Zap Ruder and LJ65, but where can I find ZapPing? When I get home, I will check everything you said.
