#1288 closed defect (wontfix)

Sound effects missing

Version of ScummVM: 0.5.4cvs on a PC. Using the CD-ROM talkie version of the freeware BASS.

I noticed when playing the freeware CD version of BASS through ScummVM, the background sound effects were missing. This is noticeable right at the start, when you get Foster to stand on the elevator and the lights flash.
On the original version, you got the sound of the alarm going off, then the maintenance guy comes in complaining of a load noise. In the freeware version you get no sounds at all.

I checked my original copy of BASS and it includes a file called SKY.RST which is missing from the freeware one. This appears to be the missing sound driver.

I included it with the freeware files and re-ran it through ScummVM on my PC to find that the missing sound effects are back! However, including this missing file with the Dreamcast port makes no difference.

I have attached the all-important missing SKY.RST file for people to add it into their BASS directory.

Could you guys maybe add it into the ZIP of the freeware download? Cheers.

The SKY.RST is reset data, which is not needed by ScummVM but only by the original interpreter.

All the soundeffects are supposed to work. you should check your ScummVM sound configuration if it doesn't.
