#2296 closed defect (invalid)

BS1: MP3 Compressed files won't start

Reported by: SF/adutchguy Owned by: eriktorbjorn
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Sword1
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Broken Sword 1


This occured using the cvs version of 18-10-2005 on

I compressed the sound (music and speech) to MP3
using compress_sword1 together with LAME 3.98 on
standard settings and extracted the 'scummvm'
reencoded video packs to the 'video' directory.

On startup of the game a msgbox pops up saying:
Segmentation Fault (SDL Parachute Deployed) and
scummvm crashes. No video or audio is being played.

This doesn't happen when using the same datafiles in the
0.7.1 stable version.

Hope this helps, if you need any more info, just let me

If it happens at the very beginning, I assume it's when it's
supposed to be showing the Restore/Start/Quit dialog. The
song being played in this case is 2m29.

If you move the 2m29.mp3 file so that ScummVM can't find it,
does it still crash? If not, what happens if you replace it
with any other MP3 file you may have lying around? What
happens if you try to listen to 2m29.mp3 in a music player,
e.g. WinAmp?

I'm terribly sorry. I don't know what happened yesterday, but it
turns out I set my game path wrong. Correcting this fixed the

Don't understand how I got it to run using 0.7.1 though, the
versions use the same ini file...

Anyway, thanks for the quick response!
