#1114 closed defect (invalid)

SIMON1: Cannot encode Simon.WAV as MP3

Reported by: SF/prismra Owned by: Kirben
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGOS
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Simon the Sorcerer 1


English version 0.5.0

There is a file called Simon.WAV that, upon conversion to MP3 (per instructions in the readme for ScummVM) simply does not fuction. There are music and digital effects but no speech. The other odd this is: although the file has a .WAV extention, the file cannot be played in windows media player or otherwise. Could this file be in some other format?

Did you use the simon2mp3 tool to convert the SIMON.WAV file to an mp3 file ? and is the mp3 files in same directory as other data files for game ?

comment:3 by Kirben, 21 years ago

The SIMON.WAV is basically just a bundle of wav files and their offsets.

You didn't mention what operating system you are using. Does the ScummVM version you are using include libmad support ?

Windows XP, and I would assume so considering all the other ones I've encoded work fine. That is interesting, they called it a WAV, however, it is just a bunch of WAVs crammed together into one file. So there is no hope of reducing the size of the files then...(like The Dig I assume.)

There we go. I think it would be most helpful (for idiots like me and those who don't download the tools) to see this listed in the readme or the compatibility list. Just an idea. Thanks!

Could this (a similar batch file) perhaps work for the Dig or Full throttle?

comment:6 by Kirben, 21 years ago

So it is all working now ? encoding to mp3 should cut the filesize down by about 50%.

Full Throttle uses a MONSTER.SOU file which can be compressed to mp3 with extract tool already. There is currently no way to compress the *.bun files in the dig and comi but hopefully support will be added in future.
