Re: Is ScummVM too flexible for its own good?

I think ScummVM is too flexible. Why is that a problem you might ask, well with increased flexibility you increase code complexity with will always result in more bugs and less performance (coding 101). It is pretty obvious that you did not investigate what OSystem is and what is the ScummVM archit...

Is ScummVM too flexible for its own good?

Ok this is a bit of a radical idea (and one that has probably been raised before?). I think ScummVM is too flexible. Why is that a problem you might ask, well with increased flexibility you increase code complexity which will always result in more bugs and less performance (coding 101). Currently Sc...

I found out what the problem was in the end so I thought I'd mention it here.

I wasn't calling the timer->handler() routine so SFX weren't being generated in FT :oops:

* is him the same person who ported ScummVM to Amiga AGA recently? http://www.amiga.org/forums/showthread.php?t=55614 Hopefully he'll start working on the Bada port now. Yep, I'm now free to spend some of my (very limited) spare time on the Bada port (yes, I have a Wave). :D Happy to try and make i...

As I wrote, music and sound effects seem to use the same format, and be handled by the same function in ScummVM.
Yes but FT doesn't seem to use any 'music', well not MIDI playback anyway (as far as I can tell).

I think it might be because the in-game SFX are read from a different file resource than the intro and in-game speech...can someone please confirm or deny? The speech is probably all in the monster.sou file. Early in the game, at least, the music and sound effects seem to use the same format. They ...

No SFX in Full Throttle?

Hiya, I've just about finished my 68k port of ScummVM v1.2 :shock: Only one bug remains, for some strange reason I can't get it to play any SFX in full throttle (speech and intro plays just fine). FT must be using some different code to generate the in-game SFX (iMuse)....does anyone know why speech...

Hi, I'm a bada developer and interested to contribute on ScummVM port on Bada. I would like to know NovaCoder status of work and I can help him about. (It's useless starting my personal port if someone is working already on it) Update, Been talking to Dokugogagoji about working on this together.......

First screen grabs of my Amiga AGA port running with 8bit overlays for the interested Amiga EAB.

Performance is not too bad considering it's doing an 16bit to 8bit conversion in realtime. :D

Shhh don't tell everyone :roll:

Thanks, I'll check to see if detection.cpp is being built properly...

Actually come to think of it, maybe it's not correctly linking to any of the SCUMM engine object files (my bad).
