Re: FM Town Voices in Ultima VI

Prior to the merger of the two teams, NUVIE had support for the full voice acting that was done for Ultima VI on the FM Towns version of the game. Is it still supported? I tried adding the "...\u6_sounds" to the extra path in the game options, but nothing happened. Where did you find the ...

Makes sense. Priorities. ^_^ Good luck with AGS!

Re: Scummvm.ini options for Ultima VI?

Some options relating to resolution and scaling no longer follow the Nuvie settings, but rather use the ScummVM systems. As for skip_intro, I checked, and it turned out to have been accidentally removed. I've re-added it back in and tested it.. with a setting in scummvm.ini in the game section, I a...

Scummvm.ini options for Ultima VI?

So I'm just starting to play Ultima VI. I was a bit disappointed to find that I'm unable to Transfer my character from Ultima V, but I guess I can work around that using spam, spam, spam, humbug in the game. One question I had...how do I tweak settings? I know in Nuvie there is a whole XML list of o...

Re: party.sav file for Ultima IV?

For ScummVM, the savegame code was refactored so that everything was saved in the single savegame files. So there's no longer any separate party.sav file anymore. That's a shame. I guess for anyone playing Ultima V, they won't be able to import their character if they play Ultima IV on ScummVM then.

party.sav file for Ultima IV?

Does anyone know where the party.sav file is saved for ScummVM for Ultima IV? If I run Ultima IV using xu4, this file is located at [User Dir]\AppData\Roaming\xu4 If I run Ultima IV using ScummVM, I don't see anything located at [User Dir]\AppData\Roaming\ScummVM\Saved Games directory except for a b...

Re: The all new and improved Ultima Trilogy

The first of these games is Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar, based on the prior work done by the xu4 project. You can detect your English copy of Ultima IV as either original or enhanced. Enhanced mode uses the VGA graphics developed by the xu4 project. With the inclusion into ScummVM, the game also...

Re: Sound files for Ultima IV

Your best bet, then, would be to grab a copy of the ScummVM source code project, and then use the Edit Game button, and Paths tab to set the Extra path to the /dev_tools/create_ultima folder. As I've previously mentioned, all the uncompressed files for Ultima 4 are in a files/ultima4 subfolder, and...

Re: Sound files for Ultima IV

Yes you can. You have two options: 1) Download a copy of ultima.dat from here and put it in your game directory.. I think it should supersede the version embedded in the executable. Despite it's extension, it's actually just a .zip file. So if you temporarily rename the extension to .zip, you can t...

Re: AGS games run slow?

Are you using one of the daily build that we provide by any chance? I think those are compiled without optimizations, which will not help the performances. If you are compiling ScummVM yourself, optimizations are also not enabled by default, but you can enable them with --enable-optimizations when ...

AGS games run slow?

So I just found out that ScummVM is capable of running AGS games, like the AGD Interactive version of QFG2 and Heroine's Quest. I personally really love the option of running games using the HQ filter, so would love to play these games using ScummVM. However, the speed of these games is extremely sl...

Sound files for Ultima IV

Question, I understand that xu4 was folded into ScummVM a while back. In xu4, there was a sound directory that contained sound files, like magic.ogg and enemy_magic_proj.ogg. I want to switch around some of the sound files that Ultima IV uses, because the magic sound is too harsh on my ears, but I c...

Re: Ultima VIII bug reports

If you want the right people to see those, the best place to report bugs is https://bugs.scummvm.org/
The developers do not always watch this forum.
Ah, thx for that. I'll submit bug reports from now on. That's better for tracking.

Re: Newbie guide to ScummVM

Should the pinned top post be edited and updated with a link to the docs (docs.scummvm.org)? The linked tutorial is gone and the linked User Manual is deprecated. Also, is there a place in the docs where I can see detailed information of each of the "Edit Game" settings, such as what each ...
