Today ScummVM had an important update to its code. With this update, I now have the ability to play my enhanced music tracks for Simon the Sorcerer using the ScummVM software.

There are still a few things that need looking at before I release the full soundtrack, but this has at least given me the opportunity to allow you to see a preview video of Simon the Sorcerer and ScummVM working with my external soundtrack files.

The video shows a before and after preview of how Simon the Sorcerer sounds without and with my version of the soundtrack. Please remember YouTube compresses the video and indeed audio quite harshly so should only be viewed as a low resolution example. The version you will get when it is all released for use within the game will be at CD quality and in stereo!

As always keep checking for more news on my personal website and make sure you pop by my new forum to discuss this project.

  • Really happy that you’ve been able to do this, if i’m honest, i’m not a great fan of midi music but you’ve made a huge improvement on the old classics, I hope you continue to work on these it seems like a great opportunity.

  • brilliant james:)

  • Fantastic news. I am really looking forward to the completion of the Discworld music project, but until then “Simon” enhanced music is great. The closing music from the second game should be a great track at CD quality!

  • great work, dude! *thumbsup*
    can’t wait get my hands on a simon the sorcerer or discworld enhanced music release!

  • Wow, sounds great – congratulations!
    I used to play this game on the Amiga, which had music in MOD format. That used to be my Favourite Computer Game Music Ever(tm). Needless to say, the MIDI music of the PC version was a great disappointment.

  • Ey! it´s marvelous,, it´s sounds depth',, Great!
    Can we get songs-titles on any site?


    • Not that I am aware of, but I imagine it wouldn't take a great deal of time to create one.
