SCI: LONGBOW: Crazy intruments in intro (AdLib)

Reported by: SF/kurufinwe Owned by: wjp
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Conquests of the Longbow


Using ScummVM 1.5.0git2420-g975801b on Win 7 64 bit. Playing Conquests of the Longbow (DOS, English, v 1.0 with official Sierra patch).

During the last part of the intro, when the game returns to the minstrel after Richard\'s confrontation with Leopold, certain instruments are completely wrong (the tune is right, just the type of instrument playing it). In particular, the main instrument (normally a flute, corresponding to the minstrel\'s words) goes through several identity crises in a row before deciding it wants to be a piano.

I\'m attaching a recording of the problem, as well as one from DOSBox for reference.

Note that the problem affects both AdLib emulators offered by ScummVM (\"DOSBox\" and \"MAME\"), and that it is perfectly reproducible even if the intro is left to play out without clicking or interrupting it in any way. The MT-32 emulator is not affected.

This is song 104.

The problem seems to be caused by MidiDriver_AdLib::findVoiceBasic(), inside the adlib driver - it keeps shuffling the free channels

This is potentially fixed by my work-in-progress sci_remap branch. At least I don't hear the issue on that branch anymore.
