Backyard Football 2002 gameplay works great but...

Post by BigBananaDealer » Fri May 19, 2017 11:35 pm

There is no commentary. The commentary doesn't work. It'll cut off before they say anything. The pros cannot talk most of the time, and when they do their lips move incredibly fast after words, and the intro movie itself doesn't work. Is there a known fix to this? Thanks in advance

Backyard Football 2002 uses the SCUMM HE engine within ScummVM:
http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Engines
http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/SCUMM

I can't see any issue on this listed in the TODO at:
http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Humon ... t/Progress

Unless you have been pausing the game during "songs" which might cause audio sync issues.

Apart from that, I can't find any listed issue for this in the Bug Tracker, so I suggest you open a new bug there:
https://bugs.scummvm.org/

I don't know what version of ScummVM you are using, what Operating System, what _exact_ version of Backyard Football 2002 so if you can provide this information onto the bug, then the SCUMM engine developers have a good chance of tracking down the issue.

If you are using the latest v1.9 stable release, then I can suggest you may want to try testing this with earlier versions back to say v1.0 to see if this is a recent regression and test with the latest nightly development build to see if this has been fixed recently:

Apart from this, you may also want to try with the original executable on a Windows machine to see if this bug occurs with the original interpreter (as there are a reasonable number of issues which were present in the original).

Just tried it on 1.4, the intro movie still won't open, but the pros can actually talk now. The commentary works, though they will move their mouth without saying anything. It works much better on 1.4 than on 1.9 (windows)

The gameplay itself glitches a lot more though. Players disappear, kicking is always facing one way, some plays straight up don't work, but the sound works almost perfect
