#1532 closed defect (wontfix)

loomcd: speech is played too slow

Reported by: (none) Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Loom


I upgraded an old Loom EGA version to the VGA version
using an update utility I found on the net. There was
also an audio pack available, which consisted of an mp3
file. I copied it into the same directory as the rest
of the VGA version, so I suppose I now have the
VGA+speech CD version, right?

Everything seems to work okay in ScummVM (version
"0.5.1 (Feb 1 2004 01:51:27)" from Debian unstable
BTW), but the speech is very slow. The correct parts
are played, but the pitch is very low and some parts
are cut off (I guess because they take too long to play
at the lower speed). I checked the mp3 file with mpg123
and it sounds just fine there (i.e. normal pitch).

So, is there something worng with what ScummVM does
with the mp3 file, or did I get a damaged version?

These so called "upgrade packs" are illegal, and we do not give any
support for them or to their users. It's very easy to legally acquire
LoomCD, e.g. from eBay.

Ah. Okay, sorry to have bothered you then. Thanks for the info.

FYI, a little update on that. It seems ScummVM had a problem
with the sampling rate (44.1 kHz) of the mp3 file. After
resampling it to a 22.05 kHz Ogg file it works like a charm.
Just thought you might like to know that.
