Monkey Island - No Speech

Post by toxsic »

...well I was searching the forum for a long time but haven't found anything that would solve my problem, i think.

I'm running scummVM on WinXP and I have the original CD of the DOS Version. I got music and everythings fine but i couldn't manage to enable the speech, can anyone help?

Ummmm, there isn't any AFAIK. Or should I say, there isn't any speech on my copy either and I believe speech only appeared on Monkey Island 3 onwards.

If you were right there shouldn't be a "Enable speech" button in the menu ^^

The ScummVM options dialog has, at this time, no knowledge of the game engines, or the individual games. It presents the same set of options in all cases.

The Curse of Monkey Island really was the first Monkey Island game to feature speech.

Assuming that you're playing the game from hard disk, did you copy all the necessary files from your CDs? It sounds like ScummVM can't find the files voxdisk1.bun and voxdisk2.bun.

Which of course raises the question, how can you have the game and not have the CDs...?

and we all know the answer to that question! Starts with a w and ends with a z, possibly.

No, you can't be serious... you don't really think that Steven "Woz" Wozniak gave it to him, do you?
