Curse of Monkey Island question 

I'm new here so please forgive me if this has been asked already.

If I brought the PC version of Curse of Monkey Island, would the game CD as it is work on the DC, via the SCUMM Boot CD?

Or would I need to burn it on a new CD?

Via the ScummVM wiki: http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Dreamcast

It seems the DC doesn't have enough RAM, so you'll have to use your computer.

Yup, the Curse of Monkey Island is a 2 cd game.

Perhaps he's referring to the 1 disc warez release?

I'm not even aware of a 1-disc warez release tbh. Not that I'm asking for it, of course.

I'd imagine you could at least get the demo running on a DC though, right?

COMI does play on the Dreamcast, you will have to put all the game data on one CDR but you will not be able to complete the game, when there's a lot of interaction required (along with music/sfx/speech) you'll end up with random crashes, and these crashes will get progressively worse. The demo version of COMI also plays on the Dreamcast.

You could always compile a CD to see how well it performs for yourself, perhaps with the demo to begin with, but avoid testing with the current version of ScummVM because there is no autosave - and you'll need it believe me. It's pretty much the same for The Dig and Full Throttle, there are points in both games where a lot of interaction can trigger crashes, although The Dig can be completed with ScummVM 0.12.0 with a few random crashes (autosave is needed), Full Throttle can't be completed yet.
