#1901 closed defect (fixed)

ALL/SFX: Setting the SFX volume at 256 mutes sound

Reported by: SF/kaminari Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Audio
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


In ScummVM launcher, set the SFX volume slider of Simon 1 or 2 to the max (256) and listen to the intro -- the sound effects and speech are muted. If you set it to 255, no problem. The Music slider doesn't seem to be affected.

To be honest, it also happens in a couple other games (Broken Sword 1&2) but it works in others (The Dig Demo). Since it doesn't seem to affect every game, I decided to file my report in the Simon bug page. All I can remember is that it's a recent behaviour (less than two weeks ago, but my hamster ate my homework, my provider went AWOL and I couldn't report it earlier, etc).

Win2K+SP4. Win32 CVS build (1615K exe file, last update: January 21, 2005, 4:04 pm).

Fixed for Simon engine, moving to general bugs.

Should be fixed for BS1 now. Are you sure the problem occurs in BS2 ? I didn't try it there, but the code looks safe enough and shouldn't be affected by this "byte overflow" bug.

I just tried BS2 and indeed the problem doesn't occur. I should test a couple more games to make sure which one is affected as well. One thing though: the music/sound/speech options can bet set up from 0 to 256, while I remember them to be limited to 255 in the past months. Maybe that's just me, I'm very tired these days :o)

So it now works in all the games you reported. If you find any other place where it causes a problem, feel free to reopen this.
