IIrc, you have to drop a crystal in the mail slot to trigger that cut scene. After that, you can switch characters at any time and enter the door with both of them.

Re: The Secret of Monkey Island Floppy DOS VGA needed for roland MT-32 patch

The Roland upgrade is only required for the EGA version. If MT32 doesn't work with the VGA floppy, the issue must be somewhere else.

Re: Monkey Island 2 - copy protection

The query should appear in ScummVM in any case, but the correct input is only checked if copy protection is enabled. If it doesn't appear at all, it is a version of the game which doesn't have it. The Amiga Kixx version has the script removed, thus it's not available. In case of the Ultimate Talkie,...

Re: Monkey 1 Ultimate Talkie Edition (released)

Hi, I get the "Failed to query the CD TOC: 21" message in ScummVM status window when running the game with the original soundtrack. Game seems to be running fine, any idea what that message means? I got no errors while extracting files. That's expected behavior. Some tracks are only prese...

Re: Monkey 1 Ultimate Talkie Edition (released)

I'm not sure the reason but Track10 is the introduction conversation with the lookout music. I don't know the reason either, but it's the way they are in the SE. I keep having problems where I get the LeChuck theme playing during the conversation with the lookout when I play in ScummVM. It's very i...

Re: The Secret Of Monkey Island PC FLoppy VGA Vs Amiga

No Sure About That, If I Would Play The Original Version Of The Secret Of The Monkey Island Now, It Would Be... It says so in the title, so enhanced CD etc. doesn't count. The Amiga version can play samples only, while the original PC floppy versions can't play samples at all (unless you count an M...

Re: Can ScummVM do smooth background scrolling?

The mouse cursor? (which it runs at 60fps) The cursor was never affected by the scripted frame rate. On C64 and Amiga, it was controlled in a raster interrupt. It could get laggy on slow PCs, though, which didn't use hardware sprites for that. Btw, before SCUMM V7, the scrolling was always in 8 pix...

Re: Can ScummVM do smooth background scrolling?

Is possible for ScummVM, a re-implementation of the original engine, overcome the limitations of Scumm and render those games at higher framerates? Like I said, this is not a limitation of the engine, but of the game scripts. SCUMM is able to handle higher frame rates, but this was rarely done, sin...

Re: Can ScummVM do smooth background scrolling?

While SCUMM V7 and V8 games have pixel exact scrolling, it isn't exactly smooth when the game renders only at 10 fps, which is a limitation of the game scripts itself. Also, while general scrolling could be smoothed out to a higher frame rate, keep in mind that parallax scrolling is scripted and thu...

Re: monkey island 2 : ultimate talkie edition

while it works, it lacks sound effects When I last looked at it, most of the sounds were in a format you couldn't get any decoders for free for. For some reason, they choose to have them in a different format to the voice acting. and the beautiful music of the Special Edition of MI2 Those are not S...

Re: Loom Ega

The overture is MT-32 exclusive. SCUMMVM can translate it on the fly to a GM or GS device.

Re: Zak McKracken VGA Talkie?

On GOG, in the language table, there is an x at audio and a ✓ at text. So why would one expect voice acting anyway?

Re: How to get widescreen in ScummVM 2.0

However the aspect ratio correction should still be making a difference for Zak McKracken. Unless, he plays the FM-Towns version that is. Eww why would you WANT to stretch it?? :P Some games might actually look better. Some 320x200 games are designed with square pixels for some reason, and a 16:10 ...
