MI2: Overlapping music
|Reported by:||SF/johan_da_man||Owned by:||fingolfin|
|Game:||Monkey Island 2|
I noticed when playing MonkeyIsland2 that at first apparently randomly music started playing over eachother, the music from the area previously visited playing over the music in the current area.
Then I tried to reproduce this and noticed that if you leave one area, enter another area (and possibly then enter a third area) quickly after eachother one tune MAY be "stuck" in the background (actually I noticed this when playing the game normally, when I was trying to figure out what to do in the game and went quickly from place to place this happened often, so I learned to not go too quickly from place to place and avoided this problem). This happened several times when I played through the game with ScummVM 0.5.1 using english MI2. I have encountered this problem mostly on Booty island when entering or leaving the spitting contest and other nearby locations, but also in other places.
Included is monkey2.s10 where this music jam has already occured, and monkey2.s05 that can be used to experiment to try to reproduce the problem.
Sometimes when I in savegame monkey2.s05 exit Wallys room, exit Woodtick and enter Dread's ship (quickly after eachother), two musics will overlap, sometimes they don't. If they don't, try to go back to Scabb island and leave woodtick that is automatically entered and return to map and enter Dread's ship again, chanses are the musics will overlap.
Sometimes rarely the problem goes away after going through a few areas, but I'm not willing to chance that I have to hear a dreadful mix of music for the rest of game so I always load my previous save if it happens.
Another weird but quite harmless bug I noticed by mistake is that if you pull the rope (!) found on Dinky Island (after you pick it up), preferably in the same screen or one near the pond where it was found, another rope will be generated into the inventory and a box identical to the one the rope was found on will be blitted somewhere on the screen. If this is done outside Dinky island the game will crash with a message "ERROR: (91:1047:0x4C): findObjectInRoom: Object 1047 not found in room 91", probably because the box is not loaded in memory or something. Test it in save monkey2.s07 (included).
Pull the rope many times to get as many ropes as you want :) I didn't dare to continue in case it screwed something up so I loaded my last savegame.
This bug is probably in the original game also, I would think.
Also a third weird thing is that I don't seem to be able to load saved games (at least in MI2 don't know about other games) from the F5 menu, the load is grayed out, so I can't load the autosave. Weird!
I probably should have made separate bug reports but i'm way too lazy :) All the saves are in monkey2weirdness.zip attachment. Good luck fixing those! (hehe)
