WEEN: Inconsistant item-pickup sound

Reported by: SF/wnivek Owned by: DrMcCoy
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Gob
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Ween


Under ScummVM, Ween's item-pickup sound varies from one instance to another, apparently through the shifts in the start & stop times of the two notes involved. This is different from the original engine, where the sound is pretty much the same every time.

comparison can be found here: (couldn't upload as attachment - file size 365 KiB)

The first four sounds are from the original engine (running under DosBox), the other four are from ScummVM. (recorded a while back with an older version, but the issue still exists in recent SVN builds) Recordings were made in the back-room of the starting area, with the music muted, after having smashed the skull. Four items are picked up: tablet, seeds, digitalis, and ring. The 1st and 4th iterations from the ScummVM recording are good matches with the original engine, while the 2nd and 3rd exhibit the problem - a gap between the notes.

wnivek: The link for your ween_pickup_comparison.flac is currently broken. Could you restore this link or if you want to attach to this bug, compress the flac with zip or similar to be smaller than the 256K limit for attachment?

DrMcCoy has been unable to replicate the observed issue and without further details from the bug submitter i.e. Operating System, ScummVM version etc. it is unlikely we will be able to track down the issue.

Due to this, I'm going to set this bug to pending. Unless commented on, it will automatically be closed in 14 days.

There has been no feedback on this for over 3 months. Changing status from "Pending" to "Closed" (which should have been done automatically, but for some reason it hasn't)
