How to save games?... and some other questions

Post by Krisen Type-S » Thu Mar 30, 2006 2:02 am

Hey guys, i'd first like to say that this forum is awesome, and i learned a lot from it! I got scummvm working with monkey island1 and 2 and full throttle

anyway, i'm having a problem saving games on all three games; when i pull up the same game menu, and select a slot, it just keeps inputting "?" (question marks). If i hit same, it says its been saved successfully, but then when i go to load it, it says it cant!

how do i fix this problem? is there some sort of virtual keyboard for scummVM?

Also, in monkey island 1, i can't seem to get the music working... i did rip the tracks from the cd and mp3 and renamed to track1, etc

then i put it into the same folder, and it still dosen't work! I also tried the same process with the .ogg files with no luck

also, i find that the speech lags a little in FT, is there a way to fix this? I'm running at 333MHz, with a sony 1GB memory stick (yes i know i should have gotten sandisc, but i got a deal on the sony!)

any help? thanks guys

btw, i did get the readme.psp file, but i have no idea how to open it?

Try using a recent ScummVM release instead of an ancient beta and you'll find that most of these problems disappear.

i tried that, but with no luck... when i'm prompted to enter a save game and i press select, it just enters a bunch of '0's

should i be making some kind of save game folder in the folder with the game files?

Another thing i found is that the speech kinda lags

i dunno if its lagging, its more like their mouths move too much, and causes pauses in the speech

any ideas whats wrong?
