help!!!: speech does not function
« on: February 27, 2003, 10:56:01 pm »

I have downloaded the last version (for the first time) on Feb 25th. I can't seem to get the speech to work. I've tried downloading again the "voice" by the installer, as well as tuning the sound and music to 80 while the speech to 100 and still don't get anything (music and sound effects are working fine), I would appreciate an your kind answer.
Thanking you very much for reviving this game (I was looking for it for ages!!!)

Do you see the subtitles?
Can you post the messages you see in the text-output when going into dialog mode?
What platform are you running on (Mac/Windows/Linux)?

In the background box (the text box)  you should see messages about trying to read the .ogg files (these are the voice files).  Could you tell us what messages you see there?

This is very interesting.
SpliceTrack<>: loading comm/comandr/coma006.ogg
Switching to stream comm/comandr.coma006.ogg at pos 0
Switching to stream comm/comandr.coma006.ogg at pos 0

I see 2 problems here:
1) comm/comandr.coma006.ogg should be comm/comandr/coma006.ogg

2) the second line (pos 0) should be something like pos 32169

For instance, here is a sample of the comandr speaking on my system:

SpliceTrack(): loading comm/starbas/starb128.ogg
SoundDecoder_Decode(): eof for comm/starbas/starb126.ogg
Switching to stream comm/starbas/starb129.ogg at pos 0
SoundDecoder_Decode(): eof for comm/starbas/starb129.ogg
Switching to stream comm/starbas/starb129.ogg at pos 32347

What this means is that UQM did not find the .ogg files it needs to play the game.

So, 1st off:  can you go to the content directory (probably C:\Program Files\The Ur-Quan Masters\content), then go into comm\comandr\ and see if coma006.ogg is in there?
If not, then something  went wrong during installation.  If it is there, then I'll have to do some more digging.

besides the ogg.dll I have no ogg files (I looked in the sub dir you suggested)
I am trying at the moment to download again the whole pack - hopefully it was a problem in the installation...
I'll let you know, thanx!

Any tuxers have this prob? I did a selfie compile, have a /comm/location of ogg dir and also get no voices.

This isn't actually enough information.  I need to see something more like:

SpliceTrack(): loading comm/starbas/starb128.ogg
SoundDecoder_Decode(): eof for comm/starbas/starb126.ogg
Switching to stream comm/starbas/starb129.ogg at pos 0
SoundDecoder_Decode(): eof for comm/starbas/starb129.ogg
Switching to stream comm/starbas/starb129.ogg at pos 32347

(play a track with multiple pages of text output)

Otherwise, i can't help you much.

How's that? I take it that the voice and 3do music after being unzipped should be in the content directory?

It's a permissions issue.

All right, now I'm freaked out. I'm trading with the Melnorme at Alpha Centauri at 0106 PST and speech worked.
