I come to you again in search of help and a way to solve my problem.
You see, I am running Curse of Monkey Island in Windows XP, through ScummVM. I thought ScummVM would be the solution to all my problems on running Monkey Island in Windows XP.
I was wrong. Dead wrong. Not so dead wrong, since they actually started, but I was wrong on thinking it would solve ALL of its problems.
It's kind of annoying, though, to reach the part where the crew is singing, which is -- side note -- one of my favorite songs of all the Monkey Island games, and hear no sound whatsoever.
I guess I could simply go through that part and click the dialog, reading the subtitles, and just play the game from the end of the song. But I choose not to. Actually, I do not so choose. The game forces me, because, as you see, problems don't come alone. They're like girls, you know. They never come alone. They come with companion.
Besides the fact of there being no sound, which isn't quite as stated, since there is a sound - a weird pumping sound that is not in any way the crew singing, and which continues throughout the singing scene, there are two other problems: There are no subtitles, even though that option is correctly choosen in the options of ScummVM and they have worked perfectly throughout the rest of the game, and the dialog options do not, I repeat, DO NOT appear after I choose the beginning dialog option (which was something like "Come on, men! We've got to recover that map!"). I choose that dialog option, and no subtitles appear, I can't hear the characters, and the dialog options don't come back.
It's a nightmare, I know, and if you could help me get through it, I would be eternally grateful. I would kiss your feet and be your slave.*
