View Full Version : Problem with ScummVM and MI1

02-08-2004, 06:36 PM
Ok, I've installed Monkey Island with my original floppies that came in the "Classic Adventures" bundle a long long time ago. Installed ScummVM, I selected Monkey Island 1 (256 color floppy version), and I click start. As the game is launching it brings up a screen that says "WAIT! When was this pirate hanged in wherever?" I don't know how to answer the question correctly, I never had to pass any anti copy screen before when it was installed on my 486. The classic adventures book has nothing in it for MI anti-copy, just for Maniac and Zac Mac. I type in a random number and it lets me in the game anyways.

This leads to my next problem, and I'm not sure if it's related.
I can get into the game ok, and I get the MIDI music, just like I always used to. However I don't get any sound effects, such as openig doors or being fired out of the Fetti Bros. cannon. Anyone know what is going on? How I can fix this? My sound card is onboard VIA AC '97. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

Never mind guys, I just downloaded the latest CVS snapshot build and the game runs with sound effects now. Apparently the code sequence at the beginning has no affect on whether or not I can play the game.

Yeah, the Classic Adventures pack skips the copy-protections for Indy3, Loom, and Monkey1. SCUMMVM "unlocks them," so to speak, but typing in random numbers gets you passed it.

I'm having problems with the sound effects in MI1 too. I have th egame off of the "Monkey Island Madness" CD and the music works, but no sound. Where'd you get that "CVS snapshot build┐"
