I cannot seem to get any voice audio to play in the Wii port of ScummVM 1.5.0, and all the options for what looks like voices are grayed out in the settings. Does the Wii port simply not support this feature, or have I bungled my installation?

Thought you were the_ramdomizer then for a minute! :lol:

No, voice support IS in the Wii port, any greyed out settings are like that simply because the Wii port doesn't allow the toggling of them - better to check the size of the files you've got, it might be you've simply downloaded versions that don't come with voices: I was playing The Curse of Monkey Island a couple of weeks ago, with voices... but taking the original as an example, that game was first released on floppy disks, sans voices, but later received a CD version with them added: if you're on about this game for example I'm pretty sure it's a floppy disk version that you've got....

Thanks for the reply. Actually, the game I am having issues with is Inherit the Earth: Quest for the Orb. I've gotten speech to at least play during the intro on my PSP port of ScummVM with this game (but not during gameplay), and then speech during gameplay but not during the intro with a different port of ScummVM (don't recall what port that was for certain, maybe Android?). Anyway, I know it isn't the game files, as they work elsewhere. I'm just totally lost on how to get this to work unfortunately :glare: ...
And sorry for the confusion, lol. the_randomizer and I do have similar avatars. Funny thing you mention that since I was PMing with him earlier :P

No speech during gameplay : it's probably the floppy and not the CD version as mightymuffy said.
You can try latest scummvm too: http://forums.scummvm.org/viewtopic.php?t=13357
There are also daily builds or wiiflow plugins.

Thanks, I'll give some of these ideas a shot.

EDIT: Updating to build 1.7.0 fixed the no speech problem in the intro, but gameplay speech is still silent. ScummVM has identified my copy of Inherit the Earth as the floppy version, so that is the next thing I will try to correct.

    Eventhough the New 3DS XL is more powerful, I still feel like the DS Lite was a more polished system. It's a real shame that it never got an XL variant keeping the GBA slot. You'd have to go on AliExpress and buy an ML shell to give a DS phat the unofficial "DS Lite" treatment, and that's the best we'll ever get I'm afraid.

    The phat model had amazingly loud speakers tho.

    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".

    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite
