ScummVM 2.1.2 "Fixing Powerful Windows" is here!

The ScummVM Team is pleased to announce a new bugfix release for the 2.1 series - ScummVM 2.1.2, codenamed “Fixing Powerful Windows”. You will notice that this time, our downloads page page is not exactly extensive. Don't worry, we are not touching ScummVM's (quite incredible) portability here. Scum...

Re: Release of ScummVM 2.1.1 “:More Sheep:”

Which download are you referring to *exactly*? I didn't encounter any issues with either Win 7 or Windows 10 during my testing prior to this release. However, why do you need to run the 32 bit version on a 64 bit system? The installer will pick the correct version for you since it's a combined execu...

Re: scummvm SDL1 resolution

Yes, openGL in SDL1 use 1280x800, but the theme is very small.. it looks REALLY fake... Yes, that's how the openGL renderer works and draws the theme files - it does no UI scaling whatsoever and will always draw the theme in the resolution that's currently set as the desktop resolution in your oper...

Could you reach out to bugs.scummvm.org? I'm afraid it's too easy for your issue to get lost in the forums.

Re: scummvm SDL1 resolution

Sadly, that's not possible since SDL1 will automatically change the screen's resolution to adapt to the one selected in ScummVM. You could try the SDL1 version with the OpenGL renderer to see if that improves things for you.

Re: no onscreen console

We just published ScummVM 2.1.1a for Windows which includes the necessary fixes to restore the old behavior.

You can either update from the official 2.1.1 to 2.1.1a via the WinSparkle updates or re-install it manually from https://www.scummvm.org/downloads/.

Re: no onscreen console

Hi slx, thanks a lot for your report! The reason for this issue is a mistake that happened to me while building the release builds of ScummVM 2.1.1 for Windows. The flag for using the text console shouldn't have been applied to the release builds, so this change was not intentional. I'll see how we ...

Re: Zork Grand Inquisitor GOG DVD version

Frustratingly, I found this out via the following steps: Downloaded the 64-bit nightly build and it crashed. Yeah, I had issues with libmpeg2 in the past too, it's simply quite outdated currently. Does the 64 bit version works if you build it by yourself with Mingw/MSYS2? Additionally, could you pl...
