#2049 closed defect
SIMON2 (Spanish): loadVOCFromStream: Invalid header!
|Reported by:||SF/dxreaver||Owned by:|
|Cc:||Game:||Simon the Sorcerer 2|
WARNING: loadVOCFromStream: Invalid header! rate effect can only handle rates < 65536!
I got this problem when the game tries to load ANY speech. If i turn off the voices, don't happens anything. all goes correct
The game is Simon1 talkie (spanish)
I also have Simon1 talkie in english and it works perfectly. i noticed that Simon1 talkie english have the voices in a .wav file instead the .voc file.
i also got this error in Simon2 talkie spanish in a few conversations (2 or 3). I saved the file often and i pressed alt+v for avoid that error
I am spanish and my english is not very well. I hope you to understand me ^^

HOW CAN I CHECK the md5 checksum of my SIMON.VOC file ?
comment:3 by , 18 years ago
A Windows version of md5 can be found at http://winmd5sum.solidblue.biz/ For other operating systems, try http://userpages.umbc.edu/~mabzug1/cs/md5/md5.html

Hmm, if WAV files are used, why is loadVOCFromStream even called? Seems strange...

Anyway, this is a duplicate of bug #1197271

That WAV file comment referred to the English version of Simon the Sorcerer 1 Talkie only.
This bug report effects the Spanish version of both Simon the Sorcerer 1 and 2, so should not be closed.

Beg your pardon, but the other report is about the spanish version, too, according to the tracker comments, isn't it?
comment:10 by , 18 years ago
The other bug report is specifically for the Spanish version of Simon the Sorcerer 1.

Uhm, yeah. And this reports is specifically about the Spanish version of Simon the Sorcerer 1, too, isn't it?
comment:13 by , 18 years ago
No, if you read the complete bug report, you will notice the problem is reported in the Spanish version of Simon the Sorcerer 2 too.

So, this bug reports that there are VOC header problems in SIMON 1+2 spanish. The other reports the same, but only about SIMON 1.
I still think one of them could be closed. Oh well.
In the mean time, to debug this, I'd recommend you insert a Common::hexdump invocation to let that suspectible header be printed and send the user(s) involved a binary modified in that way. Alas, that's up to you <shrug>.
Over and out.

The French, Hebrew, Italian and Spanish versions of Simon the Sorcerer 1 are bundled on a single CD, with a single (English) speech file included. So a difference in the VOC header of speech file is extremely unlikey.
So I suspect the speech file is corrupt, which is why I asked for md5 checksum and a filesize of speech file. Or maybe a system specific issue, considering the Spanish version of Simon the Sorcerer 2 is effected too.
dxreaver: What operating system are you using ?
Are you playing games directly from the CD or from the hard disk ?

Pending response by the bug submitter.

Sounds like you have a corrupt speech file in Simon1 (Spanish)..
What is the exact file size of your SIMON.VOC file ? What is the md5 checksum of your SIMON.VOC file ?
