ULTIMA8: Neverending Lava Noise

Reported by: bliznik Owned by: OMGPizzaGuy
Priority: low Component: Engine: Ultima
Version: Keywords: lava noise
Cc: Game: Ultima VIII: Pagan


This is for ScummVM v. 2.7.0, with the time stamp of Feb 14, 2023.

When playing Ultima 8, when you approach an area with a lot of bubbling lava, the game will play an SFX that sounds like lava bubbling around you. This SFX will get louder when you're in the middle of a pit of lava, and will fade away as you walk away from the pit of lava.

For some reason, the game will increase the volume of the lava SFX as you approach the lava...and will never decrease this volume. This means that you will hear lava noises FOREVER, until you save the game, quit, and then restore the game. Saving and restoring a game will not work.

Not a game-breaking bug, but quite annoying.

I attach here a savegame where you can walk to the left towards the bridge over the lava to reproduce this error.
