ScummVM change things in the games?

I didn't think things were changed but Red_Avatar seems pretty adamant in this thread at GoG...

Are the claims true or false?

Yup Activision have the publishing rights for the Sierra/Blizzard catalogue if I recall correctly.... Given the progress on the SCI engine(s) will be interesting (and great) for Space Quest and other similar games to come... Along with legend of Kyrandia... and come to think of it a whole bunch of S...

Have you confirmed any issues with case sensitivity? Windows is a case insensitive OS but linux is case sensitive... I've been bitten by this myself before copying scummvm stuff around... EXT2 is EXT3 without a journal.... in the early says that made a difference to SSDs but tbh I would use ext3 now...

Doh re-read it and you are right... just the three...

But two of those are supported by scummvm at least - and the feeble files they have there is the full 4CD version instead of the 2CD at the adventuresoft site....

What was the lossy version bitrate? If it was a higher quality lossy encode then it would have sounded better.... MAD is used for decoding any mp3 encoded data.... ogg for ogg vorbis stuff (or tremor). So far as the CDDA audio is concerned it is no longer CDDA as soon as it's ripped. It's then just ...

Hmm although it is backwards compatible with current mp3 decoders they won't get the benefit of the mp3HD encoding from what I'm reading (hence why there is a specific winamp plugin). Given that the mp3 decoding support for ScummVM is provided by the MAD library which doesn't support Mp3HD decoding ...

I think this is his point.... Some games had a lot of tracks - some between 30 and 90 - back in the day when redbook audio took off... and that makes for a cluttered directory - hence the request of his for the CDDA extracted tracks to be put in a subdirectory... I imagine that would be fairly easy....

What Jon meant is that scummvm replaces the old game executable - simon.exe or whatever was the old game executable is no longer required. Here is a full list of games and the files actually needed to play each one... only the data files (and occasionally one or two others to identify a game/version...
