#4453 closed defect (fixed)

Unable to select subtitles in Atlantis and Simon 1

Reported by: SF/gimlao Owned by: Kirben
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGOS
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Simon the Sorcerer 1


( Sorry but I need those subtitles, I'm french. =P )

With Atlantis and Simon 1, when I click on Edit Audio and Override, "Text and Speech" is grayed ( Subtitle speed is also grayed for Simon 1 )...

But I will see the subtitles if I select "Speech and Subtitles" in the ScummVM Options.

Version : 1.0.0svn42661 (Jul 22 2009 22:39:04)

... I don't know if I have to show you that :

« User picked target 'atlantis-1' (gameid 'atlantis')... Looking for a plugin supporting this gameid... SCUMM Engine [all games] Starting 'Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis' WARNING: Engine_SCUMM_create: No unique game candidate found, using first one! Your game version appears to be unknown. If this is *NOT* a fan-modified version (in particular, not a fan-made translation), please, report the following data to the ScummVM team along with name of the game you tried to add and its version/language/etc.: SCUMM gameid 'atlantis', file 'atlantis.000', MD5 'de9be9be4e3fb4c05eaa55dfcd8 13233' »

Because it's an english version patched with french subtitles. ( I have the original french version, but it's not talkie. =/ )

For Simon 1, I think it's also an english version patched with the french subtitles... ( ... The french version isn't talkie ... )

Sorry, all the text is in french, not only the subtitles but also the verbs, etc...

"Text and Speech" is back for Atlantis, but not for Simon 1.

And I've seen that it will be back if I remove "sndNoSubs" in the Simon 1 "guioptions" in the scummvm.ini file :

guioptions=sndNoSubs launchNoLoad

Please do the following: Get the latest daily build (resp. update from SVN), then remove the relevant entries from your config (i.e. use the launcher to "Remove" those games), then re-add them. Does the issue persist?

Sorry, the issue persist...

Version : 1.0.0pre042957 (Jul 31 2009 22:29:16)

There's that "sndNoSubs" when I add Simon 1 :

[simon1-fr] platform=pc gameid=simon1 description=Simon the Sorcerer 1 (CD/DOS/French) language=fr path=H:\Programmes\ScummVM Games\SIMON1\ guioptions=sndNoSubs launchNoLoad

And I can change "Text and Speech" to "Speech and Subtitles" if I remove "sndNoSubs".

I've found the european version of Simon 1.

It contains 4 languages : French, Italian, Hebrew, and Spanish.

I installed it with DosBox in French, and the french subtitles are enabled during the game.

So there's no reason for ScummVM to disable subtitles by default while adding this game. ^^;

Eugene, this is in your code, I think.

Actually Kirben knows better which games have subtitles and which don't. From the sources I learned that only German and English CD versions of Simon 1 do not have subtitles, as well as Puzzle Pack.

I checked all game entries, but it would be nice if Travis would check them over again.

Yes, the correct targets were updated.

The real problem is the multi-lingual versions of Simon the Sorcerer 1 (DOS CD), should only offer the options of 'Speech only' and 'Speech and Subtitles'.

The AGOS game engine will force speech to be enabled in the multi-lingual versions of Simon the Sorcerer 1 (DOS CD), if someone attempts to use the 'Subtitles only' option.
