#1713 closed defect (worksforme)

FT: sound pauses between dialogue

Reported by: SF/sockbot Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Full Throttle


It's been so long since I played the original of this
game so I don't remember if this was in the original or
not, but it seems like there are short pauses when
characters are talking to each other. I am not talking
about when you are picking lines to say, but for
example at the beginning when you bring the gas back to
Maureen and automatically have a little chat she pauses
in between lines. The game seems to run smoothly during
this time.

Using 0.6.1b on WinXP, english CD (copied to HD).

When you say it "pauses", do you mean that the audible speech ends, but
the subtitles are still visible for some time?

if so, you just encountered the "talkspeed" :-). using the + and - keys
you can adjust how long the subtitles stay. Pressing + a couple times
should "fix" your problem.

I'm sorry, I thought I responded to this bug already.
Anyways, that was the problem I was having. Part of the
problem I was having was that I didn't have subtitles
enabled so I was unable to draw the connection between
talkspeed and the pausing. Perhaps enable talkspeed only
when subtitles are enabled and also with some sort of visual
meter showing the degree of talkspeed?

Good to hear that.

Hm yeah, we could indeed change it so that the talkdelay has no effect
when subtitles are hidden. Shouldn't be hard to implement... but I
wonder how the original engine handled this ?!?
Anyway, feel free to file a feature request for it if you like to.

Regarding showing some kind of visual indication for the talkspeed (i.e.
like in the original, where pressing +/- would briefly show a small
popup) should also be possible; again, please file a FR :-)
