re: Zork Grand Inquisitor. Excellent stuff everyone!

The game plays identically to how it does natively under Windows 98, excellent work. I just completed the game and aside from a single intermittent technical issue everything went perfectly with correct frame pacing, frame rate, mouse courser movement and graphical appearance.

Zork: Grand Inquisitor subtitles (GOG DVD version)

The subtitles when pulling the crate up from the docks doesn't match the pacing of the fish dialog (chocking on plastic and then escaping while sighing of relief) and doesn't match what is said either. I dunno if I should mention this to GOG or to the ScummVM devs... or if its a bug in the DVD versi...

I just figured that out right now lol, scary coincidence. The game's loading now. After I beat Pajama Sam 2 (already beaten 1 & 3) I'll see how well Zork plays in ScummVM. Zork: Grand Inquisitor really didn't play very well in the ZEngine program that GOG used. Camera panning speed was wonky regardl...

Pajama Sam 1 (Steam) intermittent soft-lock

I had a situation in the Kitchen in Darkness's House where after clicking on various things to listen to them I clicked the fridge and the game got stuck repeatedly playing the voice clip for the fridge over-and-over, the game never gave me back control of the mouse courser so I had to force the gam...

Where is the Extras folder located? Neither the warning message nor that section of the help file mentions where it is located.

I tried creating an "extras" folder in the ScummVM folder and placing the fonts there but the game still won't launch/tells me to get the fonts.

Yes it looks like it is fixed in v2.0.0 of ScummVM, awesome stuff (I also re-confirmed the bug still exists in the version bundled with the Steam game).

It was super easy to setup the game for ScummVM which was nice. The latest version of ScummVM also doesn't have mouse lag.

Pajama Sam 3 (Steam version)

I can't complete the Library minigame. The game seems to constantly register phantom mouse clicks which causes the player character to move to an unwanted spot in the minigame making it either virtually impossible to complete or completely impossible to complete (I gave up after a lot of trying to g...

How do you play Zork Grand Inquisitor?

The version provided by GOG seems to use the ZEngine to improve compatibility with modern operating systems but this has a strange issue where the mouse courser will somewhat frequently jump from one spot on the screen to another spot which is always jarring and irritating when it happens. I've read...
