Re: Quest for Glory Series now available from GOG

Parts 1 to 3 can be played in ScummVM (with nice stuff like EGA undithering, if you like that) and I hope that part 4 will follow soon. ....speaking of which, any information on when is "soon" exactly? It seems to me that the development team is busy adding more and more engines to SCUMMVM, but no ...

I just remembered another game - Police Quest 4!

If I'm not mistaken, it also has the text resources in the CD version. Will PQ4 also have the speech+text feature later on in ScummVM?

Hmm, it would be very interesting if SCUMMVM was able to auto-choose between MT-32 and CM-32L to make each game sound as the developers intended. But in any case, is anybody keeping track on how accurate is overall MT-32 emulation in SCUMMVM? Is there a list with the known inaccuracies? I don't und...

I've been waiting six years for this (really!). I guess I can wait a little longer.

Compared to the wonderful work you guys did on SQ4 and Freddy Pharkas - would it take longer in LB2 and KQ6?

Hey.

What are the chances that LB2 and KQ6 will have the speech + subs feature integrated into them in the next release?

If it's not planned for the next release, when do you think it will be ready?

Thanks!

This is because Kirben, who used to make the daily builds in installer form, left the project quit suddenly. We plan to eventually provide daily builds as installers again, but this is still work in progress. In the meantime, I hope that unpacking a .zip file and copying scummvm.exe to a suitable l...

Wow. Talking about insulting... well... I see a dead-end is all that exists in your life and I don't know how you came up with that flower but your statements are way past being overblown now. But seems you just can't get over being in a dead-end. Just I wonder why a few pages earlier you were scar...

Yep basketball is a game, but you can eventually earn respect, and probably a bit more if you become really good at it. Working hard in an adventure game with dead-ends won't earn you respect, it is much more likely that it will make you a laughing-stock if you tell somebody you played a computer g...

First of all, three people are not all people and if you scroll back to page one you'd see a few more people that tend to dislike dead-ends. So what? I also tend to dislike dead ends, but I still enjoy many dead-end games in general, just like I can enjoy games with killer pixel-hunting. Dead-ends ...

Well in the end, it all comes down to taste. Some people wouldn't even consider playing adventures or watching movies, outdated or not. Yet that dreaded dead-end reputation speaks for itself, I know that for a fact as I've seen many people experience it, and it is certainly a major let-down for the...

You start a dead-end game, you press play, you hit a dead-end in the middle just after you've overwritten your old save that can, well, save you. You don't know that a thing such as a dead-end exists, as the very idea of it seems perplexing. Does it go to the end when you have already hit a dead-en...

That is true, but you are forgetting that you enjoy the movie in its entirety regardless if it's black and white or not. In other words, the movie flows freely. But in a dead-end game you get stuck and the flow is stuck. And if you are persistent you will keep being stuck for a long time if you dis...

I didn't say they didn't do anything right. I just suggested that dead-ends alienate a lot of people and were definitely not the way to go. The very fact that people keep coming asking about how to avoid the dreaded dead-ends says enough about these games' unfavourable reputation in that regard. Th...

But your suggesting that I am being unfriendly takes the discussion to another level, a level which I am not going to fall to. Sheesh, I wish you lived up to that promise. My initial request came after a long rationale which you ignored. You weren't supposed to reply to the request, just keep talki...
