SCI Syntax Help / Re: Altering message files and creating patches with SCI
« on: November 15, 2023, 04:59:18 PM »
Gotcha. So, after changing the verb value and repackaging the audio files to generate the folder with all the room's audio hash files, I pulled the specific one tied to the new verb and it seems to have worked. Dropping the corresponding hash file and msg file into the game's root folder will patch in the change as desired.

Kind of a goofy workaround to get it working, but it did the job. Thank you for your help!

Hmm, I tried doing what you suggested. I extracted the msg file, converted it with your tool and got a txt file, changed one verb value, and converted it back to msg. After importing the file back in, the sound that was linked to the text is just completely missing now. Testing it in-game results in the text showing up properly, but still no sound.

Thanks for the reply.

The build of SCI Companion that I'm using is the one I pulled from your bio not too long ago.

If I click on a line of dialogue and change its verb value, things appear to be fine when I go to save the changes. However, if I close the file window and reopen it, the line now has a red sound icon and it tells me that the levels have been clipped. Playing the file will give me a loud distorted mess. Do I need to make changes to the map file in order for the game to recognize what I've changed? I tried repackaging the sounds thinking that might solve the problem, but no luck.

When I load up the game and test the change, it seems to have only half worked. The text appears correctly, but no sound at all will play.

Hi, I've been having quite a bit of strange issues when it comes to editing message files. For example, if I try to change the verb value on a line of dialogue, the change doesn't seem to take effect properly and I've even run into instances where the line ends up playing loudly and distorted. Does anyone have experience editing these kinds of files? For what it's worth, the game I'm looking at is King's Quest VI.
