Not much to say, I'm afraid. I'm jobhunting at the moment, and interviewing constantly, so I'm pretty exhausted. Good news is I have a second interview with a company that expressed lined up tomorrow. "Bad" news is if I get the job, I'll have even less time to work on this. I'll keep an ey...

The .COM itself is 28 kb and the .000 file is 72 kb. I'm betting: .COM contains the intialization, keyboard, screen code, .000 contains the game logic, VOCAB contains keywords in some fashion, MESSAGE the game text itself, TABLES, well, tables of some sort. The data is encoded somehow, though. Not a...

The REWiki has a little bit of info on re-engineering: Reverse engineering hints . Consider also posting your progress on there (and here)! Be warned that it's usually a somewhat slow and laborous process that involves taking lots and lots of notes, as well as stepping through the program one instru...

I'll try to get a repository up somewhere if you promise not to laugh at my code :)

Well the only existing code at the moment is my skeleton engine (which when loaded displays the Core logo from the original files, and quits immediately unless you set a debugger breakpoint). http://img409.imageshack.us/img409/2497/picture1of4.th.png As far as research goes, there's some documented ...

Mohawk is the Riven engine.

As far as I can tell, there's been some discussion between the Riven X project and the ScummVM project about collaboration, but not sure how it panned out.

See this Mailing list thread from rivenx-devel

Anyway that's all Google is saying :)

Those two (Enchantia & Universe) are the only Core-developed adventure games that I know of. And Ian Sabine said they don't share any code except perhaps RNC-compressed files, so I doubt there's anything to gather.

Well I was bored so I've written a skeleton engine. Doesn't do anything yet, I'm just trying to get a feel for how ScummVM does things, what the important classes are, etc. Also getting reacquainted with C++, as it's been years since I've done any work in that language. By the way, the quux examples...

Oh he knows of the thread (found me through it). I'm sure he'll post something if he feels like it. There's no new code at the moment, only a more thoroughly commented disassemble. But that's a huge step of the way to be sure. Here's a screenshot ;) http://img237.imageshack.us/img237/3149/picture1cg...

I've been contacted by another guy who's also working on reverse engineering Enchantia. He's made a lot more progress than me, but we're comparing notes at the moment.

Just a quick FYI for the persons still interested in what goes on here :)

You are correct, the entire game (Universe) was written from scratch. Probably the only code shared would be the RNC unpacker :) Del, how's it going? Well I have a partially working sprite decoder going. It chokes a bit but the output sometimes looks right. Nothing to show yet, though. One thing I'...

no news I'm afraid. I'm stuck at the moment so I've taken some time off. I had some hard drive troubles, so I'm unable to run IDA at the moment. I'll let you know when I'm back to working on CoE. As far as I know, it's not an engine per se, as Ian Sabine said the whole thing is coded by hand in mach...

Re: games i would like to see supported by scummvm

curse of enchantia. I'm ridiculously busy at the moment but I try to put in a few hours whenever I have time to get the project closer to something that works. But yeah, someone is working on this, but it's way out in the future in terms of an actual scummvm/standalone engine. If you're working on ...

When you say halfword, do you then mean byte? Or am I misremembering wordlength on the Intel processor, because they seem to start with two 16b values that denote width & height, then followed by two more 16b values that appear to be the offsets. At the moment I'm writing some small tools for qu...
