Stream non-compressed sound directly from files
|Reported by:||Kirben||Owned by:||sev-|
Been able to stream non-compressed audio (ie VOC or WAV formats) directly from files would be useful, to cut down the memory required when loading large music/sound/speech segments into memory. Especially as smaller ports of ScummVM are much more limited, memory wise.
In particular there is a large speech segment in the introduction of Simon the Sorcerer 1, which is too large to load on the Nintendo DS port. There is currently a hack in the 0.10.0 branch of ScummVM to work around this particular issue.
Adding this as a feature request, so it doesn't get forgotten for the next release.
