MI1VGA- No music, any version.

Reported by: SF/pedroxerxes Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: 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. Thanks!

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.
