Re: ScummVM settings dont affect game

My issues are 2 things. In the first screen where you can finally move, the birds dont sound like birds. They sound like low sounding midi thuds instead of tweets. I've seen a few others come across this problem but no solutions given. Judging by the thread King's Quest V - bad sound in scummvm , i...

Re: King's Quest V - bad sound in scummvm

The bird chirps sound different to me in ScummVM and DOSBox as well, if I use AdLib sound. I had hoped than changing which AdLib emulator ScummVM uses would fix it, but if there was any difference it was minimal.

I don't know how to debug this, though.

Re: Swedish translations of SCUMM games

Maniac Mansion is a bit different though: different coding of X and Y, 1 byte code for the adverb ("to", "with"), fixed verb widths... I am still trying to locate those adverbs to translate them, but they seem to be encrypted or something in one of the files, as I can't seem to grep it. I believe t...

Apparently it uses a completely different game engine than the first Shivers game, so I'm not sure anyone's working on that at all. Though I've been wrong before.

Probably a lot longer. The most recent commit in that branch was in 2012, and that was the only commit that year.

That's good to know. Do you know what data files I'll need for it to run? As I said, I never gave it that much of a try. But after I had extracted the files from the CD, I just pointed ScummVM to the "HolmesData" folder. I think the main problem with getting the 3DO version to work with the current...

I remember it used to run somewhat (I think actor positions were off, and I never played it more than a little bit past the intro), but it seems to have regressed since then. Now transparency is broken - things are drawn with a black background - and it crashes with a failed assertion as soon as I t...

That would be my guess. I get the same audio when I play the movie (pe2em061.avi) in a standalone player. (The subtitles aren't part of the movie file, so they're probably the same in both versions.)

Name the files track1.mp3 track2.mp3 etc. Will that work, when the tracks from the GOG release start at 2? (I thought I had to renumber the GOG tracks, but when I did that it played the wrong sounds.) I did get both World of Xeen and Swords of Xeen to start, but I'm not familiar with the games at a...

Re: Inconceivable, the royal pyramid besieged!

Are there an instructions for which files are needed? I can unpack the GOG versions, but it's not entirely clear where to go from there...

Edit: I found some instructions in the README file. I had only looked at the ScummVM Wiki when I asked. :)

Re: Zork Grand Inquisitor GOG DVD version

GOG just updated to the DVD version, and SCUMMVM 2.0. However, as its been noted in the forums the game doesn't actually load the DVD vob files and defaults to the AVI files.... Does anyone know how to fix this? Unfortunately, while ScummVM can decode the videos (if it's compiled with libmpeg2 supp...

Re: New scummvm installation cannot find saved games of GOG

Praetorian wrote: Any ideas about what could be the issue?
I think the file name of the savegames is often based on the game's "ID" (that you can see in the "Edit Game" dialog). If the game got a different ID when you added it in ScummVM 2.0 than it had in GOG's version, you may have to rename the save files.

Where have you downloaded Monkey Island 2? Just as a side note, I thought he meant he downloaded a MIDI of the Monkey Island 2 theme music, not the game itself.
