In my final message to this posting. I'm not going to waste my time responding to each of your babyish rants except to say I'm very surprised that you're in your twenties, I felt sure you must be about 13 years old. So if you want to respond to this, 'break a leg'. I'm sure you will, then you can pa...

What is your problem, got nothing better to do than gang up with other members! Like I said I was letting it rest with Lordhoto. Until you thought you'd stir things. You mentioned that I should be gratefull - well I was that's why I said thanks. Because I enter into a discussion with another member ...

Quote /me thinks some people should be grateful they are getting any help at all with the attitude they are displaying. And some people should butt out :x The prior conversation was finished! - sometimes you have to agree to disagree. I was prepared to let it rest, but we can carry it on if you want.

Quote Well actually it's just that too many people believe all the other game engines we support have some code in common with the SCUMM games, which is not true I do hope you correct each person that actually spells something wrong deliberately, or accidently in future then we can all sleep peacefu...

Still for the time being carrying on with the HD. method, I've deleted all the extra .VQA files & the game still runs ok - saving 118 mb of space! But what about BENCHL.VQA ? I never managed to figure out what the BENCHL.VQA file is. If it's a movie, ScummVM doesn't know how to play it, and from wh...

... I can't help wondering if the Scumm engine for K3 has been done different to the other 2 Kyrandias because as I've said before the other 2 Kyrandias run fine straight from the disc! First of all it's ScummVM engine, not Scumm engine, Scumm would never support Kyrandia 3. And second the first tw...

And do you need all of the .VQA files & not just *0.VQA ? (as mentioned on the Datafiles page) Currently, ScummVM only uses the *0.VQA movies. The ones numbered 1 and 2 are the same movies but smaller, presumably made for slower computers. Thanks eriktorbjorn, My real aim is to have my K3 game disc...

Thanks Kaminari, but ScummVM won't use the Malcolm folder & doesn't see WESTWOOD.001 when I have the game disc in.

A specific list of the files ScummVM expects can be found on the datafiles page . With kyra3 sometimes people forget to copy WESTWOOD.001 since that one is in a different folder. I think ScummVM expects all these files in one folder. Not sure about HoF. Using the latest ScummVM 12.0 I also couldn't...

I'm guessing that patches won't be needed for Discworld 1 & 2 when playing through ScumVM ? And does that apply to any game played through ScummVM ?

Well done Leprov. I never did google it as the creator was not going to publicly release these eggs (as far as I was aware). So stupidly I never looked because I did not expect to find!! It looks like your links are genuine - look at the bottom of each of the webpages - see the name there, same as o...

This is great news & cheers to all the team for all their efforts in making this happen :D I wonder if (now that the code has been obtained) these elusive easter eggs will be discovered by the team when they do their magic to the files of these games? I hope I don't presume too much asking this ques...
