Post by smores »

Is there a way in ScummVM to display what audio files are playing in the game?

In general, no, I don't think so.
Maybe specific engines support it via debug messages.
Which game are you referring to?

Why do you need it? It is pretty straightforward to do, but all the sounds are sit in a monster.sou file anyway, so the max you can get is the sound id.

In The Curse of Monkey Island the tracks do seem to have names (see dimuse_tables.cpp), though that's pretty much where my knowledge of Digital iMUSE ends. ScummVM prints debug messages about them if you run ScummVM with the -d 5 command line option or higher, but unfortunately it prints so many other debug messages that I don't know how useful that is.
