No music with monkeyvga on PalmOS

Reported by: SF/chrilith Owned by: SF/jamieson630
Priority: low Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Monkey Island 1



Don't know if this is a bug in the MIDI engine. But i haven't anymore music on monkeyvga with lastest CVS snapshot on PalmOS. It's was working on v0.4.1

Also in monkey island 2, there is no more sound on the copy portection screen when items are switching (which was also midi).

Thanks Chris

Definitely hear music here. The problem is probably there because you don't have the adlib driver on PalmOS... assigning to Jamieson as he made all the changes leading to this.

Sound effects will not play in MI2 under PalmOS because those sounds are Adlib-only, and the ScummVM's Adlib driver does not work on PalmOS.

As for monkeyvga, I don't have it, nor do I have a PalmOS, so I can't test or verify this. Can any other PalmOS users provide more information on how monkeyvga music is playing under PalmOS?

Chrilith, try using the -eypa1 command line option when running monkeyvga, and tell me if you can hear music then.

I already used ypa1 driver but Monkeyvga music doesn't play. MI2 sound on copy prot (and only this one) were midi and played with previous version.

Okay, talks on IRC led to the following conclusions:

(1) MI2, FOA, DOTT, and S&M are all playing MUSIC fine under PalmOS, but the MI2 sound effect tracks are not playing. These are Adlib-only tracks, and Adlib is not supported on PalmOS.

(2) monkeyvga uses the old 'AD' format music tracks, which are also Adlib-only.

(3) Until recently, Adlib tracks WERE played through the native music drivers, but the playback was inaccurate. Recently all use of Adlib tracks with native music drivers (including the Yamaha driver for PalmOS) was removed.

Until the Adlib emulator we employ uses little enough non- heap memory (was that the problem?) to work with PalmOS, any tracks that are Adlib-only will not play for PalmOS. Sorry about the inconvenience.
