Compression Problems? 

Hello,
I have a huge issue with my computer and compressing theses monster.sou files into whatever I want. i have everything needed to do it, but the program won't take off. It happens like this, I type in on the dos command line:
"compre~5 --vorbis -b 4000 -q 0 monster.sou" and get:
"Voice file found (pos = 8) Sound Data
- length = 1620
- sample rate = 11025 (a5)
- compression = 8bits (00)
Bad command or file name"
then windows pops up with illegal operation and i click details and spills this out:
"COMPRESS_SCUMM_SOU caused an invalid page fault in
module KERNEL32.DLL at 017f:bff7b992.
Registers:

is there anyway to work around this problem like a windows friendly version because I thought that these files were, but turns out I must be doing something wrong.

Hello,

are you sure, you copied the oggenc (or another encoder like lame) in the same directory with COMPRESS_SCUMM_SOU and the monster.sou file?

The Scumm utilities are NOT containing the encoders themselves, but they need the executables for the encoders (oggenc for ogg, lame for mp3).

best regards

Frank

Hello,

oh dear, if you don't believe, that file names are important, go to c:\windows\system32 and rename all .dll files.

Or maybe it is better to do this not, if you want to boot windows successfully the next time.

regards

Frank

oh frank your so crazy. another problem for me since im am just learning how you proporly use the scumm tools how does the compress_san work? i follow intructions and tried compressing a whole directory. im hoping that i don't have to do each individual file cuz it was quite the wait for just converting the .sou files.

There is an actual program called oggenc.exe and oggenc2.exe (get both from http://www.rarewares.org/ogg.html). You should probably download/install the one required instead of just renaming from on to the other. Wink

even though just renaming files worked out wouldn't renaming the newer file have the effect of a better compression rate then?
