COMI: Game freeze in Part 3 when Pirates start to sing

Reported by: SF/snugnun Owned by: aquadran
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Monkey Island 3


ScummVM Version 6

At the beginning of Part 3, after Rottingham has taken
the map, the crew begins to sing and Guybrush needs to
select a text option (all of them along the lines of, "Stop
singing and let's get to work to retrieve the map"), the
game freezes. What I mean by freeze:
Once the text selection is made, the text remains on
the screen (although you don't hear Guysbrush speak
it), the music continues to play and the crew continues
to bob up and down, but that's it. I restarted and tried
all text selections and all of them have the same effect.

English version, Talkie


I have attached the save game.

Thanks in advance.

CORRECTION: I am using ScummVM Version 7

Correction: there is no ScummVM version 7 - only 0.7.0 (note that this is
*less than* version 1.0).

Exactly same behavior here.

May be related to the fact that the song "The pirate I was
meant to be" seems to have been cut in international
versions of the game (untranslatable?), and ScummVM 0.6.0
programmers didn't take it in mind.

I found related information in MixNMojo iMuse tools page
(, in the explanation
of a CMI Patch for this song.

Currently, I'm playing COMI (Spanish version) without
ScummVM, since it's not possible to continue beyond
this "frozen" song scene.
