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

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


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

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"

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.
