In fact, no

I've just made a clean AHI setup and upgraded ScumVM to this latest version and everything runs smoother and more stable. Paula sounds works OK. Even with "No music" as a default you get music in early games (Maniac Mansion and Zak Mckraken). I guess music worked in a different way in them. PC Speaker emulation goes OK in some other games (Loom, Monkey Island...) but will crash in the most modern ones (Fate Of Atlantis, DOTT, Sam & Max...). In these last ones, I havenīt been able to make music work, but voices and sound effects work perfectly.
Setting auto-video to false makes ScumVM prompts for a screen resolution offering PAL low-res as a default. This works even better in my monitor than multiscan modes, as the image fits perfectly and there is no colour messing (as I mentioned, for reasons of its own, my monitor doesn't like multiscan modes).
Hey! Even DOTT and Sam & Max plays noticeably smoother now!
