ZAK256: No music whatsoever

Reported by: SF/muncher666 Owned by: SF/ender
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Zak McKracken


Zak McCracken and the Alien Mindbenders (fmTowns

When ScummVM starts (0.6.0), if I Alt-Tab out of it and
look at the messages it displays, it says "WARNING:
unknown o5_StartMusic (2)"

Now, as you're probably guessing, I'm getting no music
at all. I've tried playing around with different modes of
audio (you know,adlib, midi, etc) and nothing works. I'm
assuming that the above message has something to do
with this. It should also be noted that I'm still getting
sound effects.

Are you using an original Zak FmTowns CD?

comment:3 by SF/muncher666, 16 years ago

I HAVE an original Zak CD that I got off of eBay. But I copied
the files from the CD to the Hard Drive. But if I read the error
report right, it's not actually able to play the sound correctly.

Well. First, the warning is a warning. It's not an error. In this
case, it is unrelated and can safely be ignored (most warnings
in ScummVM can, but sometimes they DO help track down

The music is CD-based, so make sure the CD is in the drive
and ensure your mixer is not muting CD audio. Also, try a normal
Audio CD to make sure your CD drive is connected to your
soundcard properly.

Finally, if you have multiple CD drives ensure the CD is either in
the first CD drive, or specify a drive number on the commandline
(see the README).

That is not ScummVM 0.6.0, that warning was changed to a
debug message a long time ago now.

Do you have the audio tracks as mp3 or ogg on your harddisk?

comment:8 by SF/ender, 16 years ago

Quiet noscript. We're not going to support mp3/ogg as that
implies an illegal version of the game :)

comment:9 by SF/noscript, 16 years ago

hehe, ok.

But i like this feature, I'm too lazy to change cds.
