I think you're right about KQ1. That splash sound at the beginning doesn't sound like the signature Roland splash.

Sierra SCI EGA digital samples

I know a lot of us were surprised to hear the digital sample of Roger Wilco thinking "Where am I?" in Space Quest 3, which practically none of us knew existed until playing it in ScummVM. So, I was curious as to how many other Sierra SCI EGA-era games have digital samples, so I looked thro...

Every once in a while, there's a copy available at http://www.priceminister.com/offer/buy/ ... eu-Pc.html though you'll have to be comfortable with buying it in French (or badly translated French) if one shows up.

I posted a bug report on this, since the gog patched game is unstable and crashes a lot in ScummVM. I don't even know which files are the patch files and which are patches that came with the original game, so I wouldn't know what files to get rid of even if I wanted to.

That's a good idea, so I tried it. Background processes weren't much of a problem, but I tried running the introduction to EcoQuest, which has a lot of graphical pixel-by-pixel fades, both with MT-32 emulation and with the Microsoft GS Wavetable synth. On the processes tab of the task manager, CPU r...

Okay, this is strange... I reinstalled ScummVM 1.4.0, and once again the games ran at full speed (with admittedly less Rolandy music). Then I downloaded the latest snapshot and installed that, and now the games don't play nearly as slow with MT-32 emulation as they did before. There's still a slow-d...

I think you're probably right about it being a processor issue. But it's puzzling to me that I'm getting absolutely no slowdown running the same games through DOSBox with the new MUNT. I figured that DOSBox would be more processor intensive than ScummVM, but I could be wrong.

That's a good idea. I tried using 1.5.0 again, and I'm having the same problem. I don't know where to get an older build. I believe 1.4.x worked just fine. But I've been told that MUNT was updated at some point recently, and that it may be more processor-intensive, so I wonder if that might be what'...

I'm using the Win-32bit version of ScummVM as well, but my Windows 7 is 64-bit. I don't rightly understand why it's causing problems now. Whenever I start a game (in full screen mode) the screen turns white, and the Windows 'wait' cursor appears for a bit, and then the game proceeds, but a white bor...

MT32 emulation now slows down most games (on Windows 7)

When I play Sierra and Lucasarts games with MT-32 emulation selected, the games now play at a usually unbearably slow speed with stuttered sound. I'm using the latest daily snapshot on a Windows 7 machine. Is anyone else having this problem? The last time I played games in ScummVM regularly was back...

I filed a bug report about this a few days ago, and it was listed on the bug tracker for a day or so, but now it seems to be gone.

Should I refile, or was it maybe removed for a reason?
