Zork Grand Inquisitor GOG DVD version

Post by Baggins » Fri Apr 27, 2018 10:06 pm

GOG just updated to the DVD version, and SCUMMVM 2.0.

However, as its been noted in the forums the game doesn't actually load the DVD vob files and defaults to the AVI files....

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Unfortunately, while ScummVM can decode the videos (if it's compiled with libmpeg2 support), it doesn't have an audio decoder for them. So that feature is disabled.

It should be possible to use liba52, or at least I think that was the library for it... but you'd still have to write the code for ScummVM to use it. The last attempt I'm aware of never got to the stage where it was really usable and I don't even remember if the code from that experiment still exists.

Well hopefully with the official release of the files on GOG, this will be motivation for the teams to start looking into getting them to work properly.
