I have no mouth and i must scream (Macintosh version error)

Post by teknik667 » Sun Oct 28, 2018 2:08 pm

Hey guys
i'm using windows 7 64bit and im trying to play the macintosh version on ScummVM
i have all the files that DATAFILES are mentioning and the game is recognized as a mac version
but after the initial company logos it returns the following error
" ERROR MusicDriver::playQuicktime(): Failed to load file 'Music/Music20' "

I have the particular Music20 file in the correct directory

and help?
tnx in advance!

I would suggest the following:
1. First try recopying files from original media / CDs as this could be a corrupted file. It should be noted that you might need some extra stuff to copy the resource and data forks for Mac resources.
2. Try checking this with previous releases of ScummVM i.e. v1.9.0, v1.0.0 to see if this is a recent regression.
3. Post a full MD5sum file list as per: https://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Repo ... _checksums so that someone else with the same version can check if your files are intact / match theirs.

If this turns out to be a variant version or a regression / bug in Mac version (which is less common), then please file a bug at bugs.scummvm.org

Ah OK... Sorry, just do md5deep on the files i.e. don't limit to just first 5000 bytes so that developers can compare. Unfortunately, I have the DOS version so no separate files just musicXX.res.

As I said, try running this with earlier versions of ScummVM back to say v1.1.0 or so and see whether this broke recently.

In any case, I think you should file this as a bug at bugs.scummvm.org and attach the file MD5sums as text files... along with the relevant information here.

This is not a bug. The Mac version of IHNM has its music files stored in both resource and data forks. You have only copied the data fork here - I've just verified this with my copy. Thus, you will need to extract the music files in MacBinary format on PC platforms. Follow the instructions here:

https://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php?titl ... -Mac_Games

Earlier versions of ScummVM read the files incorrectly, disregarding the resource fork, which is why this sort of worked.
