Assigning to joostp because he seems to have made queen/ music.cpp. ;-) Joost, feel free to re- or un-assign as appropriate, you will know better than me how to handle FOTAQ bugs.

From what I can tell, FotAQ defaults to using AdLib music, which isn't implemented yet. If I tell ScummVM to use a MIDI music backend instead, I can hear music.

comment:4 by joostp, 20 years ago

I am not aware of FOTAQ deliberately defaulting to Adlib, it requests a MDT_NATIVE midi driver and that should result in either a Native MIDI driver, or NULL driver in case there is none (or when -adlib was explicitly specified).

So, loki1985, the likely cause is that your system is either not capable of (or not properly configured for) using Native MIDI OR you are explicitly attempting to use the Adlib driver. (be it from config file or command line). Could you please verify this?

Regardless, latest CVS will give you a warning if using Adlib was attempted.

comment:5 by joostp, 20 years ago

apparently, adding adlib support was rather trivial, which means that as of now there should be no reason to be not hearing any music anymore. I'd be interested to hear if your 'bug' still persists. (since it could be a bug specific to the German version, for example)

works now (using latest CVS)!

next problem: at the beginning, the music gets 100% louder for 1 second when seeing the clock in intro, and sounds displaced. i think that's not right. i'll test with original interpreter under dosbox and see if different.

comment:11 by joostp, 20 years ago

File another bug report for the "next problem" if you deem it necessary and have verified it doesn't occur in the original, but it shouldn't go here. I'm closing this, as the reported bug has been fixed.
