Thank you very much for your reply. Apparently I misread it completely, I stand corrected and apologize for my incorrect assumptions. I confirm that the sound effects are now playing, although I've noticed a minor issue. For example in a game of Crazy Eights when an 8 is drawn and the suit is change...

Sadly, reporting this problem feels like talking to a wall, no one seems to be reading what I've been writing over and over again. The ticket that I opened months ago at the bug tracker was closed, once again very likely due to improper testing with the same pirate copy that has the corrupt audio fi...

The correct version of this game is now around.

The missing digital sound effects bug still remains in ScummVM though.

I guess that the zero replies means that this isn't as simple as I first thought. I have the free time and will to translate it (it would take about a week) but unfortunately I don't have enough technical knowledge to do it. It's a shame, i'd really like to see this game in English for everyone to e...

Croustibat - English translation

I'd love to translate Coktel Vision's Croustibat from Portuguese to English and see it finally officially supported in ScummVM. However I don't know where to start, could somebody please help me and point me in the right direction? I tried extracting the game's files, editing and repackaging them wi...

Hoyle 4's missing sounds - Result of improper testing?

As I reported in the bug tracker, The sound effects from Hoyle Classic Card Games are missing in ScummVM: https://bugs.scummvm.org/ticket/10412 And as snover commented, the sound effects were disabled years ago because "hoyle4 has garbled audio data". Now, I believe this was due to improper testing ...

That is a very good question and I'm not surprised that no one has a positive answer to it because there isn't any. This is an excellent example of why I respectfully disagree with the ScummVM developers decision to support only those very specific file formats, which is almost like only supporting ...

I've noticed that some digital sound effects aren't playing in ScummVM though (and playing fine anywhere else), so I've opened a ticket on the bug tracker.

Update: Turns out I was probably using a bad source indeed, I guess that's what you get for being lazy. I've installed the game from the 4 original floppies and can confirm that the game is working in ScummVM 2.0.0 without any error messages. Thanks for the help guys, keep up the good work. https:/...

Hoyle Classic Card Games - Corrupt resources?

Hoyle Classic Card Games worked great with version 1.9.0, however with the latest daily builds when I start the game the "Missing or corrupt game resources have been detected" message appears, along with a lot of messages at the status window appear like: "WARNING: Resource audio36.1017 from RESOURC...

Croustibat (1993) - Coktel Vision

Has anyone else heard about this game? Does anyone here have a copy of this game in English or French? I own a Portuguese translated version of this game but haven't seen this game anywhere else.

Definitely Dune, from Cryo. It would require some hard work, but would be totally worth it. It's a shame that the Dune Revival project, which made some reverse engineering breakthroughs, hasn't been updated in a long while. Sierra's SCI2, SCI21 and SCI3 games would also be something that I would lov...

Hi there, is anyone still working on the Portuguese (Portugal) translation? Most people are not aware of it, but European Portuguese is pretty different from Brazilian Portuguese. I'm pretty good at English to Portuguese translations and I have some spare time, so I could do it really quickly, in a ...
