Re: TLJ: Random text is replaced by ellipses

ResidualVM is not developed anymore as it's been merged with ScummVM - so this bug will stay in ResidualVM as it was introduced before the merger. Just download a recent daily build of ScummVM from https://www.scummvm.org/downloads/ (it supports the HD mod too) as this bug has been fixed now. Also i...

Re: Lands of Lore II and III

AFAIK those were made with a completely different engine (part 1 was 2D, part 2 and 3 are 3D) than the first part so unless someone works on it in their spare time (not an easy task) I doubt it. Plus part one was originally mainly added because it's based on the Kyra-engine used for the Legend of Ky...

Feature request/Enhancement: The Longest Journey -"Enable time skip" in all versions

I have no idea if that is hardcoded or if it could somehow be enabled by ScummVM, but in most versions of "The Longest Journey" there is an "Enable time skip" option in the settings. However in some versions (I know about the German 4 CD version, but it's probably the same in oth...

Re: How to install TLJ Gog version on linux?

Thanks for the info about innoextract, didn't even know about this but realized I even already had it installed on my Ubuntu machine for some reason, it works for GOG just fine, definitely easier and quicker than the Wine route :)

Re: How to install TLJ Gog version on linux?

While I haven't tried it with TLJ specifically (Ialready had an unpacked GOG installation on a Windows partition lying around) and I don't use Manjaro, usually Wine works for GOG Windows installers (untick the launch game after install), then just copy the unpacked files into whatever directory you ...

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 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"...

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. Here are three Versions: of the Game. http://imgur.com/a/s2PzC#0 http://imgur.com/a/s2PzC#1 http://imgur.com/a/s2PzC#2 But ScummVM refuses to ...
