Re: Unable to compile daily build in macOS 10.14

I have no idea what could be causing this on your side, but you should be able to bypass the issue by using --disable-iconv in your configure options. Thanks for that suggestion - that got it to compile successfully. Whilst I did migrate my account over to my new Mac, I had thought that a fresh ins...

Re: Unable to compile daily build in macOS 10.14

It has been a while since I looked at this, but I recently upgraded my Mac and I can no longer boot back into High Sierra to do manual ScummVM compiles. I started by re-installing Mojave, followed by a clean install of Homebrew (and all supporting ScummVM libraries). I also reinstalled the latest SD...

macOS daily builds

With macOS 10.15 Catalina only weeks away from release, which entirely removes support for 32-bit binaries, I am asking why the build bots are still defaulting to 32-bit?

Also, is it possible to compile a 'fat binary', i.e. 32-bit and 64-bit executables within the same package?

Re: Monkey Island Ultimate Talkie EGA?

I'm sure you're right, it would nice if it could be hacked to use graphic resources from EGA though (it mentions something about bug fixes in EGA version in the UT documents) I had UT setup to use Roland music. I removed the monkey.001 file and the game would not start up. I then dropped the LFL an...

Re: Monkey Island Ultimate Talkie EGA?

Is it possible to use Ultimate Talkie with the 16-color ega version of MI? It is unlikely, because the UT edition website lists the following requirement: "A VGA compatible graphics card for the DOS version". Also, I think the UT builder would be looking for data files that came with the ...

Re: Better Music for GM ScummVM (and DOSBox) games

Thanks to feedback I've received, I put the current version number next to the download links. I'll also be adding a changelog page. Don't worry though, I'll still make an effort to keep this thread updated as new versions are released. I was unsubscribed during the forum upgrades and have not been...

Re: Tandy sound quality in AGI games

Oh, thank god. Everything sounds great again!
Yes, I used a daily build and I now cannot tell the difference between the ScummVM and DOSBox emulation of the Tandy sound. Good to see it fixed.

Re: Unable to compile daily build in macOS 10.14

Thank you both for the advice. Yes, I have no trouble running ScummVM binaries in Mojave that I compiled earlier in High Sierra. These issues only affect fresh compiles after I upgraded to Mojave. My installs of SDL1 and 2 have been on my system going back to macOS 10.12 and earlier. Likewise, I ins...

Unable to compile daily build in macOS 10.14

In macOS 10.14 Mojave, I am unable to compile daily builds of ScummVM from the Github repository. I would be interested in knowing if anyone else is experiencing the same problem. The terminal output is as follows: Creating config.h Creating config.mk Creating engines/engines.mk Creating engines/plu...

Now lets look at the recordings. Both (ScummVM & Tandy 1000) recorded with peaks not exceeding -1 to -2 db. ScummVM at the top and the Tandy 1000 at the bottom. As you can see, ScummVM leaves no room for dynamics and is literally screaming. Therefor, has harsh sounding audio. Thanks for perform...

It happens across the board with all the AGI games, and I have tested it in both the macOS and Windows builds. Speaker configuration or quality might make the issue more or less noticeable. I have not found any settings adjustments that will help. It seems that the Tandy / PCjr sound output in Scumm...

Tandy sound quality in AGI games

I have noticed an apparent problem with Tandy sound emulation in some AGI games, especially the DOS version of King's Quest 2. I have tested this in ScummVM 1.6 through 2.0 in macOS and I get the same results. When compared to DOSBox, there is significant background noise or hissing, particularly du...
