Try the current daily snapshot of ScummVM SVN for Windows, which will use the game33 file, rather than the game22 file.

Hopefully the Polish subtitles will be shown correctly now.

Polish text works now, thanks.

But, there are two small problems:

First with long sentences. For example:
Image
Feeble have two options to choose from:
1. Macie chrupki?
2. Będę o tym pamiętał. Dziękuję obywatelu.
I don't know why, but the second option is too long for the game. As a result, we have:
1. Macie chrupki?
2. Będę o tym pamiętał. Dziękuję obywat
And "elu." is moved under "2."

Second problem is more serious - no Polish font in Oracle.
Image
In this example, there is...
Ta opcja jest obecnie wy^#czona.
Aby j# aktywowa$ u[yj ikonki ustawie<.
...and there should be...
Ta opcja jest obecnie wy&#322;&#261;czona.
Aby j&#261; aktywowa&#263; u&#380;yj ikonki ustawie&#324;.

I added the various font data for the Polish version.

I have a little problem with flac files.
I post here because it's not a big deal, but tell me if it's better if I add it to the bugtracker.

I just converted all the .smk videos to dxa+flac
I know that scummvm can read smk files, but with flac compression they are a little smaller (and lossless of course!)
When the game plays a video, everything works fine, but if I look at the command window, I see "Warning: force frame 1 redraw!". And this doen't happen if the video is smk, or if the audio file is ogg. So I guess it's a problem fith flac support.

Any idea?

No, the warning comes from the movie player, not the sound player. I may be overlooking something obvious, but it looks like a harmless (and pointless) warning to me. Could be some leftovers from when Smacker support was added, I guess.

First problem solved, but in Oracle (and only in Oracle) still no Polish letters (&#281;, ó, &#261;, &#347;, &#322;, &#380;, &#378;, &#263;, &#324;).

The incorrect font table was still been used, due to mistake in code.

All the text, or just subtitles? The original didn't show subtitles at all, at least not for the English version, so I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't translated. (Or that they are apparently not always complete.)

I imagine the Oracle texts should be translated, but I've never seen anything other than the English version myself.

Only subtitles, Oracle is fully translated with polish font :)

Feeble Files

Post by CyndiBop »

Hi!
I'm trying to play again Feeble Files on XP, I've followed all your instructions but I cannot find the files "compress_agos.exe" and "encode_dxa.exe" from the scummvm tools package, how can I do?
Please help me because I really want to play again Feeble Files, after many years.

I don't remember off-hand, but compress_agos.exe was always optional to begin with, and encode_dxa.exe shouldn't be needed any more since ScummVM should be able to play the original Smacker videos now.

The tools are now included in one executable : scummvm-tools.

Run it, select 'Compress', then choose the files you want to compress. The next choice will let you choose 'compress_Ago' and 'encode_dxa'.

The CLI version of the tools also exists (scummvm-tools-cli) but everything has to be specified manually.

Regards,

Actually there is no need to use any tools now, as ScummVM supports Feeble Files out of the box. Just copy over the CDs contents.
