COMI: Start of Part 3 stops in song

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


Version : 0.7.0
Language: English
Version of Game: (I'm new to this and dont know)
Platform: PC

Sorry this is a repeat of previously closed bug reports
but I looked at 1097742, 929650 etc. and cannot find
a solution for my problem.

Part 3 starts, the pirates start the song but I have no
sound and nothing else happens.

some other reports mentioned file rights etc. but all the
files are on my machine and read/write enabled.

I must be stupid but could I get a solution to this

I don't know if it's any help, but I believe the pirate song
is stored in musdisk2.bun. Is it possible that this file has
somehow become corrupt or truncated? Mine is about 181 MB.

Though to be honest, I'm not sure if I ever played this far
in COMI using ScummVM, so I don't have any personal
experience of how well it's working. I've just never gotten
around to it.

yes, that file is required to pass that scene, without it,
engine will freeze.

Just use boot parameter 465 to jump to Part III of COMI.

I can't reproduce the issue with ScummVM 0.7.0 or 0.8.0CVS
under Windows XP.
I noticed speech is currently been cut short in ScummVM
0.8.0CVS though.

speech issue could be related to latest soundHandle changes

I got so frustrated I just restarted the game from scratch
without using ScummVM, so indirectly my problem is

Thanks for trying anyway

just having stumbled across the same problem with 0.7.0 on
debian testing, having tried a custom CVS build as of Sun
Mar 27 03:07:16 CEST 2005, i would like to point out that
running on cvs actually seems to fix that problem. a saved
at that scene still seems to hang, but restarting at the
beginning of chapter 3 gets rid of the loop.


comment:8 by SF/dns25, 15 years ago


i was a little hasty with my diagnosis.

still hangs, though not on the pirate song, but now on the
first dialog after the song.

subtitle is shown ("all right crew, let's get to work!'),
but text never played back.

Could you please answer eriks question, then? Regarding musdisk2.bun

-rwxr--r-- 1 dns dns 44248234 2005-02-27 18:00 musdisk1.bun
-rwxr--r-- 1 dns dns 45714139 2005-02-27 18:00 musdisk2.bun

hmm, these indeed are not 181MB in size...

comment:11 by fingolfin, 15 years ago

45 MB each seems *way* to small. Maybe you compressed them?
