DOSBox is one solution. Its emulation gets quite close to the original OPL2 created music. However, it isn't that close enough to betray my ears. If you want to have the original music of Simon the Sorcerer 1 in ScummVM, feel free to use my created soundtrack that is offered on my website: www.Best-...

If you look in the README.txt, then you will a find a lot more than in postings here or the FAQ. There are two ways to handle aspect ratio correction: You can click "Edit Game..." in the launcher and then click on "Graphics" on the top. Then you can check "Aspect ratio correction". Another way for t...

Thanks, LordHoto! For the dates: I just took the dates of the official Windows builds - from the last one where this feature works and the first one where it didn't work.

I also think it should be reactivated. It could be a nice feature if your mouse suddenly dies. :) The only issue I found was that up and down key in the launcher were used for both mouse and selecting the list entry. Obviously it was removed between 0.7.1 and 0.8.0 (between 2005-03-27 and 2005-10-29...

Can you tell us which is your language? And why don't you think the translation isn't good so that you say it's almost unusable? It would be nice if you could contribute to the translation so that it might be improved. There are surely many people who'd enjoy ScummVM properly translated in your nati...

You can simply open the file using GoldWave. The shareware version is freely available. If it asks you about the format, you need to select that it is 11025 Hz 8 bit mono.

Ah, it seems I confused something. The thing is that "disable dithering" suggests that a function is disabled rather than a feature is called to have a specific effect on the graphics.

For the "Disable EGA Dithering": Yes, that could be done easily (although I'm not quite happy with the wording; maybe it could be called something like "Enable EGA Antidithering").

For the pause and restart: No, this cannot be changed as these are messages inside the game's data resources.

Testing ScummVM translations on different platforms

The ScummVM team and its contributors are proud to present ScummVM with translations. Translators have spent and will spend a lot of time in order to make the translations as good as possible and have to deal with several contexts and space issues. Thus we need the help of people using ScummVM on ot...

Great news. I discovered this in the Subversion Tree yesterday. Lothar93 and me will work on the German translation and are looking forward to submit the first version soon.

Lothar93: You're not the first one to offer the first translation as you say on your website. There was a time when I offered German and French translations of ScummVM at the times 0.8.0. Because of lacking interest and because it takes so much time to translate the same strings over and over again ...

ScummVM had supported such a feature in the past. Unfortunately, it got broken and thus disabled. It doesn't look like it's going to be fixed soon.

No, Kirben, this is another Czech translation of Simon 1 seemingly made by someone else. This is another variant to add to the detection file.
