Is there any way to port this great old PC adventure?

searching the forum helps.

There's always a way, but it's more work than one could imagine.
Maybe it still works under Vista/XP or Wine when playing under linux?

I played it under Wine not long ago. Apart from a minor cursor glitch, it seemed to work pretty flawlessly.

Though my Wine installation seems to have corrupted its own registry to the point where I have to wipe and reinstall it - in that way, it really is a frightfully realistic simulation of the genuine Windows 98 experience - so I can't test it at the moment.

It is possible to play this game using Wine and/or DOSBox.

It is currently *not* possible to play it with ScummVM, and there are no plans to support it right now. Please read the forum topics to which you have been pointed, which discuss this in detail.

Probably not DOSbox. I think it was only released for Windows and PlayStation. According to the VOGONS forums, the Windows version will run under Windows XP.

Because someone will have to rewrite its engine for ScummVM, a very long and difficult task

Yeah, but where do you get the source code from? That's the thing you have to re-write before, in hundred of hours.

Er, no. Wine seeks to emulate a Windows Operating System. We seek to rewrite the executables of the games themselves
