Just a question for understanding. This soundfont you are creating, do one need to have a special program or OS running to be able to use or is there a way to use it with ScummVM? I do not know about ScummVM on portable platforms, but on PCs or Macs you need to go the options in ScummVM (or edit ea...

I could not get this to work at first, as despite completely removing homebrew and all its libraries and then reinstalling, it kept falling back to SDL 1.2.5 when I built ScummVM from the main repository. I also manually checked and fixed any broken symlinks, but to no effect. However, after install...

Thanks for all your testing, I really appreciate it. At this point a good percentage of bugs I've fixed in FatBoy have been due to reports from other folks playing games I'd never have thought to, or noticing things that I'd missed. No problem, I am glad to contribute. I am already amazed at how mu...

Can you clarify which builds you mean exactly? For the 2.0.0 version you mean the official macOS 64 bits version available on our download page? For the development version you mean the daily builds available on buildbot? Or did you build it yourself? The official macOS 64 bit 2.0 build works fine ...

I was not sure if it was a bug and needed to be reported, but if it is then I am sorry for mentioning it on here. I did not intentionally mean to break a forum rule.

For the record, I am using MacOS 10.13.4. If I am able to work it out myself I will post back here.

AdvMAME3x problem with development build

I realize the development builds might have a range of bugs and issues, but I noticed that when I use the AdvMAME3x filter in ScummVM 2.0 I get a crisp and 'smoothed' game window that fills my 2560x1440 screen. When I use the same filter in the latest development build of 2.0.1 I get a blurry game w...

For consistency, I am predominantly testing the same tracks in KQ6 and 7 each time you make a release. So far, no problems to report with this latest build. I might just be imagining it, but the oboe sounds different (and better) in some of the KQ6 tracks where there are oboe solos. The flute is sou...

MUNT in ScummVM 2.0

I noticed that in ScummVM 2.0 the in-built version of MUNT is listed as 2.0.3 which is from early 2017. Is there a way to compile ScummVM 2.0 with a newer version of MUNT (i.e. 2.3.0), or is the in-built version heavily modified to the extent that you cannot just slot in the newer version without br...

Do you think you will introduce the new trumpet or flute by the v1 release, or are those a longer term project?

Sorry, I did not notice there were two identical posts with one mentioning the download and the other not. I responded to this post in good faith.

I do not know how ScummVM interacts with the sound driver files in Sierra SCI games, but there are lots of patches and updated drivers available here: http://www.sierrahelp.com I know that (in DOSBox at least) it is possible to fix some sound related problems in Sierra games by swapping the sound dr...

Re: Which trumpet?

Question: which trumpet do you think sounds better? ▶ Trumpet 1 ▶ Trumpet 2 I've been using the same base trumpet samples for almost two decades now, and I've finally found some stereo samples that *might* give 'em a run for their money. They do need some serious work, but I've ...

I have not had much time for testing recently, but I do look forward to hearing how you progress with the new flute sample. I thought it was already sounding really good but I guess there is always room for improvement.

It is sounding great, I really cannot fault it. :)

I notice the size of the file decreased by about 100MB?
