After reading the newest newspost, I decided to play
Curse of Monkey Island once again, and I think I found
It appeared (at least) since the 19. Febuary, using the
daily Build for Windows (XP), and I downloaded the
newest daily build and checked it again a few minutes
ago (scummvm -v shows "ScummVM 0.5.7cvs (Feb 23 2004
03:36:16) Features compiled in: Vorbis MP3 zLib MPEG2").
The datafiles were copied to the harddisk.
The crash appears in the german version ot Monkey
Island 3, when talking to Haggis about his name
("Haggis. Das ist mal ein ungewöhnlicher name." meaning
"Haggis, thats an unusual name" in english.). Then
Haggis tells him that Haggis is actually only a
nickname. The Sound is playing fine until it reaches
the middle of the last word "Spitzname" (meaning
"nickname"). At that point ScummVm opens a debug
console, with an errormessage. (I'll try to include a
Screenshot). The errormessage is always something like
"BundleCodecs::decompressCodec() Unknown Codec
655619!", but the number at the end changes from time
to time (for example 917762, 917763, 721155...). I also
tried it with Linux (compiled it myself) and there it
didn't show the console but simply crashed.
If this part of Haggis reply is skipped over with the
"." key, the game runs normaly after that, and thats
the only place i have seen this.
I also tried to copy the Datafiles again, and running
it from CD, but the problem was still there
When starting scummvm from a command prompt and typing
exit into the console after the error, there are two
errormessages of the same type, and the only difference
is a second "!" at the end of the second one. It looks
BundleCodecs::decompressCodec() Unknown codec 655619!
BundleCodecs::decompressCodec() Unknown codec 655619!!
I also downloaded an older version (I think 0.5.1) and
there the game didn't crash, but made a short noise at
that point, but went on to the next Line, which was
I also checked the original Interpreter from Lucasarts,
and there it worked normally, so i don't think my CDs
are damaged. But i could not check it with different CDs.
