This game uses a fan-game sound scheme (sciAudio) in a form that ScummVM doesn't currently support. (I haven't heard of sciAudio before, just did some quick debugging.)


From https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/blob/master/engines/sci/sound/audio.cpp#L70 :

// TODO: This is a bare bones implementation. Only the play/playx and stop commands
// are handled for now - the other commands haven't been observed in any fanmade game
// yet. All the volume related and fading functionality is currently missing.

The ScummVM code expects to be passed strings and this game passes the index of a text resource instead. That's as far as I looked.

I don't think we should add a fan-game for detection if the audio doesn't work, but I don't really know the full story here.

I've got sound working, fixed a volume bug, and figured out why the... um... "creative" way it paints the screen black corrupts our memory. I can now complete the game and everything seem to work. Once I've got polished solutions for everything I'll add the detection entry. It's a cool game!
