Re: TLJ: Random text is replaced by ellipses

I did make a bug report for it here https://bugs.scummvm.org/ticket/11767 and it seems someone already created a proposed fix: https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/pull/2530 I can confirm this fixes the problem, obviously I don't know if it introduces any problems in other games as it's not STARK engi...

Re: TLJ: Random text is replaced by ellipses

This seems to be a merged post from ResidualVM, however I had the same problem with the last few builds of ResidualVM both on Windows and Linux on different machines, so it seems to be a general bug. I just compiled ScummVM (the current git version) on Linux with the merged stark engine, and still h...

Okay, I found something that's kind of weird. I'm not sure if this happened on previous versions as well as I hadn't used ScummVM on Android for a while now, anyway, on some games (Gobliiins, Hugo's House of Horror and Lands Of Lore at least, those I'v tried, I'm sure there are more) it's impossible...

Hey, just let me say, thanks for that update :) The latest daily build seems to work fine on my Nexus 5 and new Nexus 9, at least the few games I started up for a test (both on stock Lollipop)

Enable mixed Adlib/Midi mode in the settings. This enables direct controls instead of touchpad mode :)

Chip is a respected PC magazine in Germany Only for certain values of respected. Granted, it's not quite as brain-dead as Computer Bild, but that's about it. I haven't read the magazine in at least 10 years and even before I never was really a big fan of it (if anything I've read c't in the past) s...

I just checked the site and downloaded the file just to inspect what the download consists of, it's indeed the German floppy version in a .zip file, however I'm pretty sure they don't have the rights to distribute this file. Actually in the zip file is a .lnk file to a German "Abandonware" site (I w...

Here are the ifferent operating systems I run and ran ScummVM in the past, if I counted the number of devices it probably would be somewhere in the 30s and I'd probably forget a few anyway. I started using it back in the 0.1 days I think with basically only Monnkey Island 2 (and to an extent Fate of...

Do yourself a favour and try to hunt down a copy of Grim Fandango and play it (the guys over at ResidualVM now managed to make run good on most modern system). While not Scumm, it's probably one of the best, most imaginative games ever. Yes the controls are clumsy, but the artwork is beautiful and t...

Re: ScummVM doesn't load games - Simon the Sorcerer 2

Hi, I downloaded several versions of Simon the Sorcerer 2 from [REMOVED] (And yes, it is legal, if you own the original) But ScummVM refuses to identify it.

For the nightly builds you must indeed install the necessary engine plugins seperately. So if you want to play Monkey Island (or any other SCUMM game) just install the plugin-scumm in addition to the main ScummVM app and it should work fine, at least it does for me...

The mixed adlib/midi mode thing to affect mouse input actually is in the official buildbot build though... Not sure if that "feature" in 1.3.0 as well, I currently only have the unstable version installed on my phone.

Switching mixed adlib/midi mode on/off actually IS the current way to switch between Touchscreen mode and direct mouse control mode on Android, at least in the daily builds, even says so in the readme :)
