Wing commander 4 GOG sound but no video

Thanks for the log! It's odd though, i don't see any error messages showing up while setting up DirectShow or during runtime. I'll look more closely when i get off work though.

In any case, there's a couple of things i can try. I'll try posting a new DLL soon!

This reminds me of the multiple monitor bug but he says only one is set up... I wonder if it's still connected somehow

As Blair said, there's always hope :) Hang in there, there's a few things I can try that may help. DirectShow is a complex beast... There's a couple more things we can monitor to see how DirectShow is behaving on your machine, so we can start with that. Also DirectShow has a number of renderers, and I can try using a different one to see if it helps. I'll try to post a new DLL soon.

(Also, i'm working on an alternate movie player that is not based on DirectShow, for WC4 and... a couple other projects... but it's not quite ready yet.)

I'm not sure if this is related to the problem someone else was having with a dual monitor system. I suppose there might be something about certain setups that make the current DirectShow renderer trip itself somehow. I wish i could reproduce this issue on my test machines, that would allow me to get to the bottom of it very quickly.

id be more then willing to be a genie pig foe that and also ive been tempted to reset the compatibility mode and use the virtual protection failed patch just to see if it makes a difference may i try that or will it mess up the gog version completely and/or effect our current line of tests?

update just tried no change
I should also note that when i "skip" the movie i do get the interactive choices to appear so this is almost defiantly a player problem
ill do a clean install tomorrow so we can try other things
update 2 i decided to do a clean install right now im all set for more tests

Alright, here's a new DLL! Basically I added a few new debug messages and made a few tweaks here and there regarding monitor usage. Please give these a try and post the resulting debug.txt here (you may want to delete your current debug.txt first). I'll tweak the DLL a bit more during the weekend based on your feedback.

Thanks for the logs. The error reported in the log disappeared with the installation of AC3 Filter. The graph builder is now using AC3 Filter and not the MS codecs. Lesson here is not to trust the MS Codecs, i guess... Ok one problem out of the way!

Regarding video however: I don't see any other errors on the log, but i will configure DirectShow to use an alternate renderer to see if it helps. I'll post a new DLL soon!

i guess the benefit of all this testing is not only will we solve this issue but you may be able to create some sort of patch based on what works and what doesn't and it will benefit the entire community i do QA testing for PC games i know its not the same but im used to the process i wouldn't mind being a tester for that player your working on when it reaches that phase
 

HCl

WC EXE archaeologist
Definitely, looking into these issues will contribute to making a more robust patch. The new player will be also be useful on that regard, as it will remove dependencies from DirectShow and codecs installed in the system. I'll post more info about it when it's ready for testing.

Here's a new DLL, set to use a different DirectShow renderer. I suspect your machine doesn't like VMR for some reason. If that's the case, this should improve things (it hasn't been extensively tested though). Please post a new wc4_graph log afterwards.

Ok that's a good sign. I made a few more tweaks, so here's a new DLL! Give it a try, then please post debug.txt. Let me know if things improve.

It's strange, the behavior seems to be the same for you, for the two renderers. No errors in either case as well. This made me look for other causes... and after reviewing the code for a bit i did notice that there was Windows message that wasn't being handled according to spec. Tweaking it a bit seems to result in slightly smoother video startup on my Vista VM, so i'm hopeful it will have some positive effect on your machine.

Anyway, give it a try and let me know if it helps in any way! Please post a debug.txt afterwards, to see if anything changed there.
