ScummVM v2.0.0 is out and QFG4 is now officially about the only unsupported SCI game, and specifically the only unsupported SCI2 game. Actually, even SCI3 games are supported now. What's so unique about QFG4's engine?

Using this as a general wiki thread, http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Leisure_Suit_Larry_6 describes the plot of Larry 7, not 6 (which your daily started supporting). Can you please fix that?

Exiting full screen mode moves other applications

Whenever I exit full screen mode, all other applications in my XP SP3 system are moved to the bottom right. I then have to move them back to the center one by one.

It takes the fun out of full screen mode.

If I use the game's Windows version under Windows OS, what's stopping me from just running SCIWV.EXE directly? Is your version better?

Also, when you say "Sierra removed it", do you mean to say "and therefore we removed it too"?

Space Quest IV DOS vs. Space Quest IV Windows

ScummVM lets me choose both (CD/English edition), so which one should I play?

ScummVM removed copy protection in both versions of this game, so that's not a factor.

If this forum is not about Sierra, why does it currently only have topics about Sierra? Why don't you move them away if they don't belong here?

What is this forum about? Its title is "Fangame Creation" but it currently only has 2 topics and they are about totally unrelated issues. Those topics are technical questions about official games.

But do you think his site provided those stuff even when he was the copyright holder? He probably put those stuff in the site only after he quit.

The only two games I can think of that have the copy protection removed officially are the CD versions of Space Quest IV and... This one has multiple copy protections. They are (by order of appearance - but correct me if I left anything out): The requested code when entering a timepod for the first...

Copy protection in SCI/Sierra games

Now that SCI/Sierra games are supported, how did you deal with their (usually in-game) copy protections?

They're not currently listed in README.txt's "3.1) Copy Protection" section.
