Sorry for repeating the question, but, is this project still alive? Is the person responsible for it possible to make contact with? It would be a real shame if we received the source code, only for the only person who has it to completely vanish. I'm more than willing to translate the game if there...

Thank you a milion! The xBRZ version does wonders on its own, but I can't find a way run it with the SweetFX. Can you provide a short how-to - do I need to run both apps at once, or just the SweetFX alone? Just extract the contents of the .7z into your ScummVM folder, then run "ReShade Setup.exe" a...

I improved the SweetFX config, the dithering is now decreased a bit and it improved color gradients, especially in very dark and very bright areas. The overall image is now a little smoother because I enabled FXAA, as this seems to work better for 2D games than SMAA, but most detail is still there. ...

Re: Curse Of Monkey Island - best graphic settings

Hello and welcome, fellow Members! I've been struck with a nostalgia fever and dug out my Monkey Island 3 cds. I've successfully installed it and the thing runs without problems. Now I'm thinking about tweaking the graphics a little bit - to make them seem less "rugged", if you know what I mean. Is...

For even better sounding MIDI music, try VirtualMidiSynth with one of the Soundfonts provided on the page. "SGM-V2.01" sounds quite nice and there are even bigger ones if you have enough RAM. Here is an example: https://youtu.be/TFwN0DMOp4A?t=411 It's crazy how many people are not aware of this and ...

That sounds like the kind of thing that could easily cause a lot of unforeseen glitches. I'm just speculating here, but for instance, if a non-player character enters the scene, he might not even exist beyond the original edge of the screen, or it could mess with the composition of the scene. One e...

Widescreen support for games with scrolling backgrounds?

I asked myself this for a while: Why do adventure games in ScummVM with horizontal scrolling backgrounds still have black bars at the sides, when you could just extend the background area without any stretching to a 16:9 display... Would it really be that much coding effort to realize this? There ar...

Phantasmagoria is not yet officially supported by ScummVM, and won't be in the near future as SCI developement is currently on hold.

The author of XBRz did a ScummVM implementation himself, couldn't you just use his code?

Why do you want to use an outdated format such as mp3? These days there is ogg, there is opus and more. You should use one of these more efficient formats.

Agreed, that is really not a good idea.

I think the main focus should be on the PC version, which then can be ported to Android, IOS, and MAC.

That's Direct3D, so no, never.
What about OpenGL? Isn't there a way to make a similar shader for OpenGL?

Well, Dosbox Daum supports shaders in .fx format and there is a quite nice CRT shader, which emulates the behaviour of an old CRT screen and it's quite accurate: https://i.imgur.com/m6kP3TT.png You can even adjust the amount of curvature. I think it looks much better as if you just upscaled it to 10...
