IHNM: Speech is garbled

Reported by: SF/vorph999 Owned by: bluegr
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SAGA
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: I Have No Mouth


While playing IHNM I noticed a odd behaviour in the last few builds.

The Voice files seem to be played all at once, which makes it impossible to understand the dialogs.

This doesn't happen in Version 0.12.0

System used:

Vista Ultimate x86 SP1 ScummVM Version 0.13.0 SVN (latest build)

Ticket imported from: #2111496. Ticket imported from: bugs/3967.

Quite strange, it seems to be working for me

Which version of the game have you got? (language and platform). Just tested it with the English DOS version under XP and it works ok

I'm not quite shure about the game Version... The game is detected as (DOS/English, DOS/Russian, DOS/italian) The speech is compressed using OGG. Do you need the MD5 of a specific file to determine the Game Version.

I tried using uncompressed audio, and the problem seems to be gone...


P.S. was the compression tool changed ???

I just tried to re-copmpress the audio files, and the error occurs again. I also noticed, that using compressed audio no sfx are played at all...

Strange indeed...

May you, please, tell what exactly is written on the CD? I.e. we need to know exact version you have problems with.

comment:6 by SF/vorph999, 15 years ago

No problem,

the text on the CD say's "Harlan Ellison - I have no mouth, and I must Scream"; in the lower half of the CD the text is "CYBERDREAMS(R) - Cyberdreams is a registered trademark of Cyberdreams, Inc.. I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream (c)1967, renewed(c) 1996 by Harlan Ellison - Distributed by Acclaim Entertainment". The game itself is an uncensored english Version (Nimdok Chapter is fully playable).

When I start the game using DosBOX the message is:

I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream Version 1.0g Copyright 1995, Cyberdreams, Inc. and The Kilimanjaro Corporation. SAGA Engine Copyright 1995, The Dreamers Guild, Inc.
