Re: AGS games run slow?

We are aware that the AGS engine in ScummVM is slower than the original AGS, and hopefully we can find some ways to speed it up. Most games work fine for me though on a relatively low spec laptop, exceptions being games like The Cat Lady which is indeed painfully slow. Are you using one of the daily...

Re: Thousands of games needing testing

This is fantastic news! Is there a way to tell which game uses which AGS version? Not currently, but it may be useful information, so I'll look into adding a debugger command to give a running game's version. Good idea. The AGS version is actually printed to the terminal/console when you start an A...

Re: PI residualVM

I am assuming by "PI" you mean the Raspberry Pi?
I am not familiar with it, but I would be surprised if the mount points are really the desktop. Many window manager show the mounted disks on the Desktop, but the actual path is different, usually somewhere in /media/ on Linux.

Re: SAP5 Support?

It is indeed up to the engines to tweak which voice to use. For example in Mortville Manor we used different voices for each characters, and the voices are primarily selected based on the character gender. I have not looked at the code in Lure of the Temptress but it probably use the default voice. ...

Re: No option for cloud game data download

I don't really know the reason but my guess would be that it is related to the limitation mentioned on https://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php?title=Cloud_Storages_API_comparison#Comparison_Table. This suggests that there is a technical issue to support subdirectories (needed for game data) but also that...

You cannot. The game data download option is not available when using Google Drive.

Re: Maniac Mansion NES not supported anymore?

I am not familiar with it, but there are some improvements listed for Maniac Mansion NES in the ScummVM 2.2.0 release notes, which suggest it is still supported.

The bugs linked above mention there is a fixed Spanish translation, but the link provided for it is no longer valid. Maybe you could try asking the fans who created this translation.

Re: INDIANA JONES BUG/ERROR

With so little information there is not much we can do to help you. Where did it crash? What were you doing just before it crashes? Which version of the game is it? On which platform are you playing? At this point I can only speculate that maybe your data files are corrupted. In which case you might...

Re: Discworld 1 Best Version

There is a page on the wiki that lists the bugs that occur in the original (and not just ScummVM): https://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php?title=Tinsel/Bugs The "text speed" option in ScummVM is a complete misnomer (and has been forever). It's more of a "text delay", i.e. the higher i...

Re: Leisure Suite Larry 7 - keyboard sending characters twice

You could try to ask on the RetroArch forums. They are using their own unofficial port of ScummVM and we don't know much about it here. I just tried with the official ScummVM on macOS and typing text is working properly in Leisure Suite Larry 7 for me. So it could be an issue with their port. Or it ...

Re: Newbie guides?

As a starting point I would recommend having a look at the documentation at https://docs.scummvm.org/en/latest/. One important aspect to understand is that ScummVM does not include any game. You need to have the original game already, or buy it separately, and ScummVM can then be used to play the ga...

Re: Cloud Saves GRRRRRR!!!!

That sounds like a serious flaw in the design of the cloud save sync. Creating a bug report for this on https://bugs.scummvm.org/ would be great so that this will hopefully get fixed.
