Topic: Gabriel Knight 1: Any difference between DOS /Windows ver?
Replies: 2
Views: 2161

The most obvious difference is that DOS and Windows versions of this game have different videos. The DOS videos don’t include audio, so the DOS version plays synthesised music in some places where the Windows version plays sampled audio. There are also some places where one version plays video and t...

ScummVM has built-in support for taking screenshots. Take a look at the user manual’s hotkey section for more details.

Topic: ScummVM Tools 2.0.0 Windows Installer?
Replies: 2
Views: 1260

Hi MarkCoolio. Why are you interested in an installer for the tools? Unlike ScummVM itself, these aren’t utilities which are normally used on a regular basis, so it doesn’t make a lot of sense to install them into the OS (unlike ScummVM itself).

There’s not currently such a flag, and, making one is a good idea and needed for other platforms too like macOS/iOS where we miss essential frameworks flags when cross-compiling without `--static-libs`. So please feel free to submit a pull request with a new configure flag to do this.

Actually, I wanted to ask if it was OK to report issues like these for QfG4. I did look at the bug tracker (where I saw the Revenant problem), but a reply indicated that since it was not officially supported, it didn't seem quite appropriate to clutter the bug tracker with more stuff. Let me get ba...

I would like to affirm what Ender said with regards to being receptive to AGS support in the here and now. I was not involved in this previously, and it sounds like whatever happened in the past is best left in the past. If anyone is interested in working on this engine, I personally would be happy ...

Yes, this is an unfortunate problem due to the lack of a maintainer on the Android port; I had to cobble together a new release binary for 2.0 and this was based on the older Android backend due to compilation issues with the other Android-SDL backend (which I guess is what was used for the 1.9 beta...

There is an open bug report about this. The MPU-401 driver does seem to be sending some reset-looking messages when it is destroyed, and not everyone experiences this problem, so I can’t explain offhand why it might be happening to you. Providing more reproduction information in that ticket could be...

May I ask why there's no Windows zip file version of the release? The installer no longer requires administrative privileges (it will install to AppData if the UAC prompt is cancelled), so it’s not necessary to offer a separate download for users without admin access any more. Also, you may use inn...

This is a great question. I have some aspirational goals like these for the next release which I plan to discuss with the team once I have some time to write something semi-coherent. Keep an eye on the mailing list for those discussions.

The MIDI code in SCI engine is very broken right now, so crazy glitches like this are unfortunately pretty common. My understanding is that this can be especially the case for SCI0 games like LSL3, since SCI0’s MIDI system ran in a fundamentally different way than SCI1+, and this old design was neve...
