Stereo and 22 khz audio available?

Post by Maveric » Fri Dec 16, 2005 2:15 pm

Hi!

Do you now have stereo and 22khz support in your latest build? Or will you be making such a version soon?

Except for better audio quality, will it increase performance on stereo phones?

Stereo can be turned on through a setting in the sdl.ini file, I will try to make some instructions when I find a minute over. As for sampling rate, this is true too, but the difference between 22 khz and 16 khz is not that great (not in the phone anyway).

Why have you disabled the "joystick-button" in your later version of ScummVM? It was nice to be able to use it. Now I can't assign it to anything.

Also, the configurations I do in ScummVM, including finding games is not saved when I exit the program. I have to do it all again everytime I start.

I have to assign the buttons everytime to the ones I want to use :(

1. The joystick button has not been disabled, now its used as a action key so you can assign the number keys to more things. The reason for this is as other key combinations was harder to press dependning on the model of phone.
2. With the later versions the installation directory has changed from EScummVM to ScummVM and also the documents folder. So you will need to uninstall and then reinstall to get all things right. Backup the .ini file if you want to keep the settings. If the documents\scummvm folder has n't been created no settings will be saved. So check if you have the documents\scummvm folder.

Thanks, it worked!

But what about the stereo configuration? Do you have instructions on how to do it available now?

Abit busy at the moment, but lets see what I can come up with. As for 22 or 16 khz sound, it is not that big differrence, in the old games the samples was only 11 khz any way so. But stereo makes a difference :-) Most of all getting rid of that downmix to mono.

*Waiting patiently for your instructions for stereo* :) I hope it will give the games an even better sound experience (using headphones). But most of all; even better performance. Will it be a notable difference you think?

Then, the only problem left (in some games) is the rather slow mouse speed. I hope that is improveable.

I thought the talkie version of Indy 4 was incompatible with this symbian port(?) Is it? I haven't tried the talkie version yet, but I have looked at the demo clip (no gameplay though(?), and it worked great! Great audio!

There should n't be any problems with Indy4 as far as I know, just memory that might be an issue for some devices.

What about my other questions?

Where exactly will you post instructions on how to change to stereo?

The WIKI would be a good place I guess.

I am right now building new cvs versions, with a small query to use stereo or not. Of course.. if you answer YES on phones not supporting stereo, nothing will be heard.

Ok, that sounds good. So I will get a question when running ScummVM if I want to use stereo or not? Or will there be an option in the configuration menu?

You will get the question when running scummvm and the option has not been set. If you want to change it afterwards the setting is in the sdl.ini text file. Transfer it to your pc and edit it there.

Well you can test it on anotherguest.b0.se/cvsbuilds (It has been there for the last couple of days). The V1 installer is abit wrong (installing in ScummVMS60 instead of ScummVM) but otherwise it should be ok.
