KQ4 v. 1.000.111 - Music differences?

Post by Semi-Happy Partygoer » Mon Jul 17, 2017 10:35 pm

I don't personally own a copy of the original SCI release, but I'd read about the graphical and engine differences and was curious to see it in action, so found video of a playthrough.
https://youtu.be/nIuRrNL-Jck (EDITED: video didn't seem to imbed properly)

The music immediately caught my attention. The key and pitch sounds significantly higher than in 1.006.004. In all I'd read about the differences, I don't recall music being mentioned. Is this accurate, or did the person who recorded this have a faulty copy/off settings? I'm presuming it's cracked, given the lack of the copy protection screen, but I don't know if the music sounding the way it is would be symptomatic of that.
While this is an interesting approach, it serves no practical purpose.

Just leave off the

Code: Select all

and enclose just the video part of the address in the tags.

See http://sciwiki.sierrahelp.com//index.ph ... creenshots for some of the graphical differences. I have never noticed any audio differences between the PC SCI versions. The cracks would not make any difference. That video is higher pitched. I think it is more likely that "NintendoComplete" sped up the video.

I don't hear any differences at first glance.
