Topic: The case against aspect correction of Monkey Island
Replies: 27

The drawback to aspect correction being off is that it produces a blurrier image, as you can see in the top screenshot. The pixels aren't as sharp because they're being stretched horizontally to approximate the width that they were meant to be. If you care more for the image having the proportions t...

Yes, this patcher version (both the original and this new bug-fixed one) only patches the music to repeat immediately. I didn't want to create 6 more file diffs, 3 for the Windows patcher and 3 for the DOS patcher, since that's a lot of busywork just for an alternate version of my patch. If anyone c...

I've fixed the bug and updated the link. Thanks to Raziel for discovering it for me.

This is really strange. After rebooting my computer, the intros now work in ScummVM (for the first time for me ever) and I'm able to reproduce the hang. I'm not sure what's going on, but at least I can try to narrow down the music issue now.

Apparently, I forgot to check back here for over a month. Sorry that that I didn't get back to you sooner, Raziel. Thanks for taking the time to test the patch and report the bug. Unfortunately, I can't reproduce it. The intro (including the constable scene) works fine in DOSBox and the intro ends e...

Thanks for the confirmation, albadross. It's appreciated. For a second there, I was wondering why you had to use Wine, since ScummVM is ported to nearly everything, then realized that it was to run my patcher, which is for Windows. I hadn't even thought about that. Edit: I've whipped up a DOS patche...

It shouldn't be silent. If you're asking, though, you probably didn't check that music worked before you applied my patch. You might have an issue with MIDI in your OS or ScummVM that you need to get sorted out first.

Actuall no, i didn't install the game as Windows exe's don't run here. I simply copied the whole floppies over. I've got the Electronic Arts big box. The file is on disk 1 and has 156,697 bytes. Maybe with that option it decompresses some already compressed file? (Oh, was that what you meant?) otoh...

I was just asking about the original MUSIC.LIB in your package as it seems to be double in size than the one i hvae copied from my CD. Now, we need to get a dev in here :-) It's the only size that I've ever seen, which is 358 KB. That's the size in the floppy version and the size in the Hit Squad C...

Nice, thank you :-) Now i wonder if this patch is possible to integrate into the source without the need of an altered data file (which may vanish completely after time). As it seems to be a "bug in the original" it would be worth fixing/ working around. It should be simple to integrate it into Scu...

Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes (Scalpel) - Repeating Music

Hi. I posted this over at the DOSBox forums, but figured that it probably deserved to be here, as well, since the game is officially supported by ScummVM. There are also nothing but old adventure lovers here who might appreciate it. https://pcgamingwiki.com/images/thumb/0/0a/The_Lost_Files_of_Sherlo...
