Ron Gilbert on Disney: “It should be me that owns MI"

http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/11/30/ron-gilbert-disney-monkey-island/ Disney’s recent acquisition of Lucasfilm scored it more than the Star Wars franchise: it also picked up LucasArts and its catalog of games, including Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion, landmarks of Double Fine designer Ron Gilbert’s ...

Special thanks to: (...) Aric Wilmunder, Ron Gilbert, David Fox, Vince Lee, and all those at LucasFilm/LucasArts who made SCUMM the insane mess to reimplement that it is today. Feel free to drop us a line and tell us what you think, guys! (...) So I guess they just did ;) Geeks do engineering, true...

Get a daily build. Oh, yeah. My bad! Thanks! I've tried from CD and I copied to HDD and it doesn't work. If it's not working, then you are making a mistake somewhere. Make sure you copy all of the .LAB files from *both CDs*, and GRIM.TAB to a directory on your HD (you can include the original patch...

Great filter! :) From what I know, the main problem is the lack of a proper filter/scaler infraestructure. There's the following related OpenTasks: - Extend plugin system - Improve the default backend (specially if wanting GPU acceleration) The main problem is the need of a programmer able to do the...

As Collector mentioned, AGI and SCI are two completely different engines. There are some small similarities in parts of the drawing code, but SCI is far more complex and advanced than AGI. Even the graphics output was much different in KQ4: the SCI version had more details in each scene, the protag...

There are significant differences between the AGI engine and that of SCI0. KQ4 is a good example to see these differences as it was released in both versions. Don't confuse the two just because SCI0 was EGA. Oh, sorry then. So the common is the color depth it seems... PS: If there are people intere...

SCI has an editor but even not supporting 256 color and it uses early AGI-like versions of the engine . Um, what? I was talking about SCI Studio , that mainly supports SCI0 only. Maybe I'm wrong, but early SCI versions seems more rudimentary compared to newer ones (so I did that comparison). And th...

The only thing this discussion should be about it reimplementing the ability to being able to support the old AGS games, there is no need to talk about creating a new game-engine as that's not the purpose of SCUMMVM ( there are enough game-engines in SCUMMVM which you already can use to create new ...

Re: Thinking Outside The Box

I'd like to share some thoughts I think may be helpful to this discussion. AGS consists of a game Editor tightly intergrated with the runtime Engine. The good thing about this is that compiling a game usually takes a barely perceptible amount of time, making it easy make changes and test frequently...

We still did not see 2.x engine sources. Eugene The current version seems to run games from 2.60 to forwards, or the PSP/Android port at least. He said about release older AGS versions too. Previously tothe Open Source release (the official code repository is a Subversion server, plus other forks l...

Does it uses AGS? I hope to play it on the Linux port... Anyone already tried it? Yes, it does use AGS 3.21.1115. Brilliant remake so far, exactly the one AGI game I always thought needed a remake. And the way it has been done it really feels like being from Sierra's VGA era. Damn, I need a nerdy w...
