HUGO: Sound incorrect in DOS versions

Reported by: SF/muyfa666 Owned by: Strangerke
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Hugo
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Hugo

Description

The sound of the DOS versions of the Hugo trilogy sounds gawd awful. The timing is off and the sound is very pitchy and noisy. The Win version sounds fine.

Fuzzie committed an enhancement to the music code. It's still not identical to the result under dosbox, but I have the feeling it's much better. Could you please check the nightly build and give a feedback?

One detail: the Win version uses a classic midi file, which definitely sounds better. The two versions shouldn't be compared.

comment:6 by SF/muyfa666, 8 years ago

Yes, the Win version sounds very nice. I just tested the DOS version with the daily build. Still sounds so awful it's borderline unplayable. Much too high notes or something.

comment:7 by Strangerke, 8 years ago

I wasn't clear, sorry. Fuzzie committed something less than an hour ago, so it'll be available in the next nightly build. Could you please recheck tomorrow? But again, don't expect something similar to the Windows music: it's pure PC speaker.

I used the daily build now that says september 10. It still sounds gawd awful, sorry to say.

Attached current output running in ScummVM and in DOSBox with the original interpreter for comparison.
As far as I can tell, there is no longer any significant difference in timing or pitch...

tdhs, hkz and I compared the 2 mp3 uploaded by tdhs and we came to the same conclusion; there are minor differences that do not justify an opened bug. Closing it.
