#2125 closed defect

DOTT: Sound Effect missing in intro.

To be precise its not a sound effect in the monster.sou file that won't play, its the Adlib midi driver's apparent lack of the standard bird tweet instrument. The only audio driver that plays the instrument is Windows MIDI and that seems to be incredibally quiet compared to the sound effects and other audio options. But it is clear that the bird tweet instrument is playing with that driver only.

I thought that was how the original worked as well. Could someone check?

When you say the sound is incredibly quiet with the Windows MIDI driver, do you mean the bird tweet is quiet or that all the music is quiet? If it's the latter, look at the Windows volume control. At least on the computer I'm using at the moment (which is running Windows XP), there's a volume slider for "SW Synth" which affects MIDI.

To process your bug report appropriately, we need you to provide the following additional information:

* ScummVM version (PLEASE test the latest CVS/Daily build) * Bug details, including instructions on reproducing it * Language of game (English, German, ...) * Version of game (talkie, floppy, ...) * Platform and Compiler (Win32, Linux, MacOS, ...) * Attach a save game if possible * If this bug only occurred recently, please note the last version without the bug, and the first version including the bug. That way we can fix it quicker by looking at the changes made.

This should only take you a little time but will make it much easier for us to process your bug report in a way that satisfies both you and us.

Thank you for your support!

As Erik suggested, I ran dott on a DOS machine with an adlib/soundblaster card. And the bird tweet isn't hearable during the intro.
