Aside from bugs the Comet engine should be feature complete. The Prisoner engine is missing mostly the games menus.
If anyone wants to finish them I'll gladly help explaining the code and how the games work etc.

Without having extensively studied the Igor code, maybe it's possible to convert the bytecode to C++ code as a starting point for a "real" reimplementation, similar to what was done with Dreamweb.

Nice, I started to work on this some time ago and made an extractor for the PTC files. Later I stopped, though, mainly because it's not available in English. Also I'm not sure what our "policy" is with including non-English games if the games' engine isn't already supported. Maybe some volunteer can...

Weird about that tsage thing, it really is tsage. I wonder how that came to be. I checked MobyGames but from the credits there it doesn't seem people from Mythos also were in Tsunami... Oh well... And yes, game.exe and title.exe share a lot of code. title.exe is basically just a player for the vdx a...

I've made a little extractor for the BNK files. I only tested it with darkside.bnk which comes with the demo. It's a console program and you'll need to give the filename of the BNK file to extract. The files will be extacted into the current directory. Source (C++ and DevCpp project) is included. (X...

I had a look at these three Accolade games some time ago, sadly all the game logic is hardcoded which makes the whole process a lot more tedious.

I can confirm what clone2727 said. I also bought a RtZ Mac version some time ago which has MPEG-2 videos (that imo look worse than the PMVs). It also has a 640x480 resolution. Some backgrounds seem to be just upscaled from the 320x200 images so they look quite bad while other screens look better. As...

I've worked on reverse engineering both Dreamweb and Prisoner of Ice (amongst several other games :)). The Dreamweb RE is almost complete and I know a lot of stuff but for some reason I don't remember I didn't go on with reimplementing it, although I have some code. Prisoner of Ice does share very l...

I'm still working on it occasionally, it's in a good shape, though, so eventually it will be supported.

That's really odd, I don't remember this problem while testing RTZ. I'll have to check it with my CDs (US + German versions) when I'm home.

From my "investigations" into Chronomaster and Sanitarium they don't seem to have much in common. Veil of Darkness and Sanitarium seem more similar.
