Secret of the Monkey Island 1 (1990) talkie regression 

Hi,
I've been using Secret of the Monkey Island 1990 with talkie modern soundtrack with success for some time.
After ScummVM upgrade from version 1.8.1 to version 2.0.0 it's stopped working.
It prints the following initial log message and then the never ending black window appears:
User picked target 'monkey' (gameid 'monkey')...
Looking for a plugin supporting this gameid... SCUMM [all games]
Starting 'The Secret of Monkey Island'
WARNING: Engine_SCUMM_create: Game data inconsistent with platform override!
WARNING: Engine_SCUMM_create: No unique game candidate found, using first one!
WARNING: Expected MThd or GMD header but found 'SO--' instead!

When I switch the platform from FM-TOWNS to DOS then it works but with original 1990 sound track (not talkie).
In that case the initial console log at game startup looks as follows:
User picked target 'monkey' (gameid 'monkey')...
Looking for a plugin supporting this gameid... SCUMM [all games]
Starting 'The Secret of Monkey Island'
WARNING: Engine_SCUMM_create: No unique game candidate found, using first one!

I launch it under Xubuntu 18.04. I've installed it from a standard distro package.
Do you have any idea what can be wrong ?
thanks in advance

heyho like i have seen on my tests - you need create a "new game" and then they it will ask you for the version - there is version named se talkie and this works for me (no changes in language or plattform -just standard!)

Hi,
Thanks for reply.
When creating new game I can select the talkie version of the game but after selecting it the scummvm still uses the original (not talkie) soundtrack created in the year 1990.

You have to replace the music files with the SE soundtrack.

Depending on whether you chose OGG or FLAC compression when you made your talkie edition, check the folder for a subdirectory called "se_music_flac" or "se_music_ogg", and copy/move the files in there up one directory level up to where your installation is.

The currently downloadable installer includes a batch file that only copies track 25 to 29 from the enhanced folder, for some reason.

[Edit] Alternately, set the game's Extra folder to the subdirectory containing the music you want (I haven't tested this myself). I missed that part of the installation instructions myself because I expected the batch file to fix all the music.
