#1290 closed defect (invalid)

MI1VGA- No music, any version.

Reported by: SF/pedroxerxes Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Monkey Island 1


Monkey Island 1: VGA disk has the inverse problem of
what's described on the boards. Supposedly I'm meant to get
music and not SFX, and I get exactly the opposite, sound
without music. I've seen this mentioned (but not solved)
several places around here, I think we may be looking at an
OS X-only bug.

Mac OS X.2.8 system
Scumm 0.5.1

I've tried:
Several Music drivers, including Core and QT
Several versions of the game, including Mac English, PC
English, and PC Spanish
Tinkering with dozens of settings

The music DOES work (but sounds like crap) if I run the
original Classic application the game once ran on, but it's
rendered useless by the graphical glitches a 12-year old
game causes.

From your comments I conclude that you are not running the PC
VGA Disk version, but rather the Mac version. Which has a
completely different music format than any other LucasArts game
before and after. We only added support for that very recently. So
if you want music, you'll have to either get a current CVS version,
or wait till we release 0.6.0

Actually, first I used the Mac Disk version, then I had my friend
send me the PC Disk version. On top of that I even found a
Spanish PC version floating around. Music works on none of these.

OK. Did you try the adlib music driver? The only way you'll get
sound with the PC version of MI will be using that, or using the --
multi-midi option. This has always worked fine on Mac. And for
the Mac version of MIVGA, what I said still holds true - you'll have
to wait till 0.6.0 or get a current CVS build to be able to hear
music in that.

BTW, talking about stuff you find "floating around" is a very good
way to get your reports deleted. Please don't refer to warez.

Well, c'mon. I've owned a copy of the first MI for ten years. It's
not like I'm following guybrush's profession here.

I think I've found a solution. All three versions of the game I tried
were based off the CD version of the game, so the two PC
versions HAD no Midi music, and the Mac version has its own
weird little music setup. It's interesting to note, though, that the
Mac version is based off the CD version (graphical interface like
DOTT, only two data files, no imbedded midi).

Indeed, the PC CD version has audio CD sound tracks. Which
should normally play fine, though. If they don't, try ripping them
to MP3/Vorbis as explained in the README.
