I don't know if the lzss algo is the standard one.
2 years ago I decoded this algo in the game itself, I didn't try to use a standard algo on the the game files.

Compare the Scummvm and a standard decompression algo to see if you can use a standard lzss compression algo to modify resources files.

I made a resources Exporter/Importer for Mean Streats and disassembled the game program to allow its translation.
The translation in French is in progress.

I know there's also a 3D engine in this game, but if a ScummVm developper wants to support this game, I'll give him all my stuff.

mmm, Lzss algo has already been written in scummvm for Gob1 & 2 They also use a rle algo for pictures. Animations of Gob3 and woodruff are in the VMD format that is used in Sierra games too: http://www.multimedia.cx/vmd-format.txt And the xentax specifications are very very poor for Goblins, it desc...

In fact most archives contains Bink videos so there is no support possible for this game if a solution is not found about rad's license. I thought to 2 possibilities that concerns smk or bik formats: - We bought the game which is delivered with the bink dll and we have the license to use it. So what...

Just wondering, will EMI be supported by ScummVM one day? Game [Escape from Monkey Island] is not good enough. Residual could be somewhat adapted to that after GF support is finished, but none of its developers are interested in that.Eugene Another problem is that some videos are coded with Smacker...

ScummVM includes English and German texts from ITE.EXE so I suppose that the german version exists.

I don't believe that a french version exsits but a team of amateurs is working on a french translation. (amateur comes from the french word aimer)

Happy new year to all
