View Full Version : No Music for certain games in SCUMMVM

10-04-2005, 02:37 AM

I have the problem where I get the sound effects but no music for some games when I run them using SCUMMVM. The funny thing is I used to have them working about a year ago, but when I tried again recently there has been no music.
The games were -
Flight of the Amazon Queen
The Secret of Monkey Island (Monkey Madness CD version)

If someone could help me out I would appreciate it.

AFAIK the Monkey Madness version uses CD audio. Did you put the CD in the drive or do you use MP3s/WAVs?

I tried running it straight from the CD. When I tried playing SMI before I could actually get the music tracks to play without using SCUMMVM, but I used SCUMMVM anyway to get the sound effects. Now SCUMMVM gives me the sound effects but I can't get music at all.

I got a new sound card recently - Soundbaster Live. I'm not sure if this has something to do with it....

Perhaps you havent linked the cd audio cable up or something. Rip the tracks to mp3 - read the scummvm readme for more info.

If I didn't hook it up then why would I be having the same problem with Flight of the Amazon Queen? Also, would it only affect older games or would I have no CD audio?

Its just a possibility, could be a few things, perhaps your cd audio is muted or you're playing from your second cd drive (scummvm expects the first drive unless you tell it so).

Like I said - rip the tracks to mp3 and place them in the game dir. End of problem.

Ok, I managed to get it to work and boy do I feel stupid. The only reason I'm telling you what it was is because I appreciate your help and hopefully you will get a laugh out of my naivety

You were right - the CD audio was muted!

Thanks for your help
