Cool, thanks. Do you have the catalog in dutch too? If I remember it had demos for the first two Freddi Fish games as well as the first Spy Fox game.

I think I have a few lying around somewhere. But that's outside the scope of this I think. If you know any demos the team doesn't have, and know where to find them, (what game etc) let me know and maybe I'll try to track it down.

I dunno where to find that stuff, I think it's nigh impossible to get a new CD of that now.

Do you by any chance have the demos for the first two Freddi Fish games separately, then?

I sometimes see old copies floating around ebay and other places. That's where I get lots of things. Anyway, here's the other demos. http://sourceforge.net/projects/scummvm/files/demos/scumm/he/freddi-win-demo-nl.zip/download http://sourceforge.net/projects/scummvm/files/demos/scumm/he/freddi2-win-demo-nl.zip/download

Thanks again. Odd that the Freddi Fish games kept their native resolution even in fullscreen, while Pajama Sam just stretched out.

It's a thing with the engine. There's a way to make each do the other. But that's for another forum topic. Don't want this one getting off.

Toonstruck demo:

archive.org has a Toonstruck demo that appears to be unrecognised and differs from the German one already hosted in the sourceforge demo archive.

{"ONETIME.PAK", 0, "318d8874215dd11fd834e185e6a34787", 233496},

If I unzip the TOONSTRK.ZIP file in the MISC folder, ScummVM will detect it, but it won't work. It seems to be mis-detected as the full game, rather than a demo.

There is a lot on archive.org that has been tampered with. Not sure why anyone would do so with a demo, though.

What exactly do you mean by "tampered?" This intrigues me.

Some of what is on the site is old warez/abandonware. Many of the Sierra games they have have been setup using my installers, though they often fail with abandonware because I only designed them for the original media. It is only by chance that they work with the illegitimate copies.

But I do not want to start an abandonware derailment here. My original comment was merely to point out that the demo on the site might not be original and that might be the why of its failure in ScummVM.

It's an ISO file, and the README.TXT file refers to "the demo CD", so maybe it was some kind of cover disc?

Looks like it's a demo that came on a magazine called CD-Action. Here's an alternative hosting location which seems to come with a little more provenance.
