Supporting Broken Sword Ita Audio Files on the cutscenes

Description

Playing (perfectly, and i wish make my best compliments
for it) on ScummVm the italian version of the game,
i've seen that the video cutscenes are only dubbed in
english. With Rad Video Tools i could extract the
italian audio dub of the videos, so that the Italian
version of the game would be fully supported. The only
thing is that i don't know what to use for making Ogg
Vorbis-ScummVm compliants audio files.

you need an ogg vorbis encoder, I think it is called oggenc
[.exe], put it into the same directory as the scummvm tools
(can't tell you more, not at my computer right now)

I have the italian sound files somewhere at home, may be
able to post a link later on so you can just download them

also this request looks as if the forums are the right place to
post about it

hope that helps,

I've posted because i would like donate these extracted
files only for making the Italian version of the game fully
supported. I understand perfectly the english and i can say
that the original dubs on the cutscenes are far away better
than the italian counterpart... I was thinking that the
italian version of the game is not so popular, so if the
project needs these files now that i know how to do to
encode i can send them.
Thanks for the infoes, Clem.

don't remember where I got that file from, but here's the
ITA audio in .ogg:
http://www.unet.univie.ac.at/~a0200586/stuff/Broken.Sword.1.-.audio.cutscenes.ITA.per.Scummvm.rar

to encode your own version:
http://www.unet.univie.ac.at/~a0200586/stuff/bsvideo.rar

(I think the intro and credits animation is different in
each localized version too, the text is in
english/german/whatever afaik)

hope that helps,
clem

Thanks again!

So, summing up:
1 The Ita audio files are already supported in ScummVm
2 The Ita audio files are already available on the net
What's left? Probably only a link on the official ScummVm
page...

1) ScummVM doesn't really need to know which language the
.ogg files are in - you could even rename your favorite .ogg
music files and let them play :-), so any language would be
supported
2) The sound files are already available, like I said
changed video files are not (so the conversion is not 100%
perfect)

Yeah, pretty much only links to the packages are left to do;
as a side note I did the same for the German version months
ago and there's still no link to be found :-)

We've put French, German and Italian add-on packs to sf.net
downloads (linked from
http://www.scummvm.org/downloads.php), so this item is closed.

Though we decided to put just .ogg files and not
language-specific intro.mp2 and credits.mp2. Yes, it is not
complete conversion. But the problem with this is web space.
We're quite overfilled usual sf.net 100MB quota (just
sligthy in more that 2x times :) ), so if you'll suggest a
proper permanent free hosting for .mp2 files, it will be
very appreciated.

I assume the German files come from my zip file/website
I'll try to keep those cutscenes permanently up there,
including videos.
