SCUMM: FLAC support (.SOF) is broken for Full Throttle

Description (last modified by DrUm78)

I don't see anything about that in the changelog (branch "branch-2-6-0" and "master" too) but FLAC support does not work anymore for Full Throttle (no speech in the game) and it does not display any popup at launch like DIG does now for compressed .BUN.

Is it a license issue or something intended here?

Hiya! The support for compressed files was recently dropped since the audio engine was rewritten from scratch to match the original one; while this thing benefited the audio accuracy, it has some drawbacks like this one: for a number of technical reasons it just isn't feasible for FT to support compressed files (while COMI and DIG support might come in the future).

As for the popup, it should appear. But now I'm wondering why it doesn't... Which version of the ScummVM tools did you use to create the SOF file?

As for the changelog, I was scared for a second that we forgot to mention it, but it's the first line in the SCUMM section :-P

SCUMM:

New Digital iMUSE engine. Support for re-compressed audio files dropped in Full Throttle, The Dig and The Curse of Monkey Island.

Oh yeah sorry I saw this line but I misunderstood it! :p
I did not compress the .SOF myself tbh so I cannot say. But I now use an uncompressed one and everything is fine. Thanks for the confirmation!
