LOOM: Music doesn't work on floppy *and* cd version

Reported by: SF/wolfgke Owned by: Kirben
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Loom


I use ScummVM version 0.4.1 for win32 (the most recent release that can be downloaded). I've found out that at loom (floppy version: english and german; cd/talkie: english) the music doesn't work. The compatibility list only says that it would not work with the amiga version.

Music and sound effects in Loom (Floppy version) are only supported in ScummVM CVS version or snapshot. The music in Loom CD should work fine though. If you playing from the Loom CD, then try copying the data files to the Hard Disk and converting the audio track to mp3 or ogg file. See the ScummVM README for details on converting the audio track.

This report is invalid.

But I must give him a point: our compatibility list always refers to the latest CVS version, yet it nowhere states so. Hence people using the latest release (0.4.1) may assume it refers to that. While that's not correct, I agree with their point of view: it's the most logical thing to assume.

Hence we should either put up a big "this is not for 0.4.1, this is for latest CVS" text atop that page; or we should make two compat lists, one for the most recent release, one for current CVS.

It might be worth pointing out that if you get any sound at all in the CD version of Loom, then that's as much music as you are going to get since all the voices / sound effects / music were mixed together into one single audio track on the CD.
