SCI: GK1: Restore missing Windows video in Day 6, Bayou Cutscene?

Reported by: DustyShinigami Owned by:

Game: Gabriel Knight 1

Description

Reached the Bayou in the swamp and the cutscenes that play during the rital are a bit off; their transitions appear too quick or only animate one frame at a time. While this Let's Play video is no doubt the DOSBox version you should be able to see the difference between that and the save file. Lowering the speed doesn't seem to help either.

Here's a link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7ftP0RseUg

It's around the 20:33 mark.

Thanks for your report!

So, I don’t know why, but Sierra patched out all of the video playback in the Windows version of this room. So, ScummVM is working correctly here, this is how the Windows version of GK1 works.

It might be possible to restore the video playback, since the video files are on the CD (at least on the 1.0 US release), so I am converting this ticket to a feature request to see if it is possible to restore the video playback in this room without breaking something.

I see. Bizarre of Sierra to do that. Two of those sequences are basically repeats from the dream scenes at the beginning of the game. The wheel within a wheel one plays for about 2 seconds, but isn't as abrupt as it is during that section. Certainly hope that feature gets added.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
