AGOS: Simon the Sorcerer 1 & 2 - Voice cut off

Reported by: Stepbr0 Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGOS
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


Something's wrong; i notice that already in the intro-sequence the voice is skipped again and again. At the Beginning, it's clearly recognizable, right before he pulls out a Bomb from the Hat and normally would say something more like: "slowly, I begin...(CUT) understand". Sadly this happens during the whole Game. Please help and fix that; thanks in advance.

I can confirm that some speech in simon1 (gog-de) is cut off early (tested 0.13.1, 1.0.0, 2.0.0; uncompressed .WAV as shipped by GOG).

I can't reproduce this with the my original English CD of simon1 with either ScummVM 2.0.0 or current master on macOS X.
I tried with both the original uncompressed wav copied from the CD and with the speech compressed to ogg.

Maybe the issue is specific to the GOG version? Or to running ScummVM on Windows? Or maybe I just haven't played long enough to encounter the issue (I let the intro sequence play to the end and then played a few additional minutes as the start of the game).

I think it might be specific to the German version but I can't check if it's specific to the GOG release (probably not); I own the original German CD but it's not with me right now.

I also checked the English GOG version and it seemed fine, although I admit that had this not been reported I might not even have noticed it in the German version so it's possible the skips also happen with the English GOG version, but I doubt it. The example given by OP is definitely OK in the English GOG version.

Disclaimer: I only checked the intro.

I cannot reproduce the speech getting cut off in the german or english version of simon1 cd version from GOG. Attached is what I hear during the intro right before simon pulls the bomb out.

I am on windows 7 I used 2.0 and kirben latest.

You _did_ reproduce it. This is what it should sound like.

Is this related to subtitle speed? Can you try lowering the speed and see if speech still gets cut off?
