#268 closed defect (wontfix)

No mp3 audio track support in CD version

Reported by: SF/chimpster Owned by: SF/ender
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Sam and Max

Description

ScummVM 0.20 release, built from the latest CVS (05-15-2002 @ 4:00pm), Linux, Talkie, CD-Rom.

There is no audio track support in the English CD version. It uses the built in MIDI even when the 5 audio tracks are available in the directory. I added some debug statements in the playMP3CDTrack(), and it isn't being called.

The first occurance of this is in the intro credits. The first CD track should be played at this point. I verified this with by loading it from DOS.

Sam and Max does NOT use these cd tracks ingame, as far as we aware. According to our contacts these tracks were simply included as bonus features, and are not used by the game.

Closing bug.

I just re-verified the above by copying the CD to the hard drive. With the CD removed, the music plays as MIDI (the same way it does via ScummVM), but when I insert the CD, it plays back with the audio tracks from the CD.
There's a big difference in the way they sound. So whether they are a bonus or not, Sam and Max DOES use these cd tracks ingame. They are not required for playing the game, but they are used ingame if the CD is in the drive.
Could I possibly have a different version of the CD?
