I have a PocketPC and downloaded PocketSCUMM so I can play Sam&Max on the road ( hopefully ). I was wondering if anyone can tell or teach me how to compress the game so it's smaller then 112MB , hopefully 70MB or 60MB if you MP3's the dialogue?

Anyone willing to put it together and send it to me I would pay.

The biggest file in the game is the MONSTER.SOU file, which contains all character spoken phrases. You can compress it in mp3 using a tool included in SCUMMVM.

If you really want to cut down on the size, then you could just remove MONSTER.SOU. But then you'll get no speech, which is boring :). I recommend Drigo's method, you'll find the compressor tool at:

http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/scummvm/tools/

It's the tool called extract.c. You have to compile it though. It will converts the MONSTER.SOU to a much smaller MONSTER.so3 file. For the extractor to work, you'll need to install the LAME library available at:

You also have to build ScummVM with MAD support, thus needing a MAD library install available at:
