The non-talkie version is better. The voice acting in the CD version is so unbelievably bad, it actually detracts from the overall experience. Just my opinion.

Re: FM Towns Loom -- Graphic issues

I just installed Loom (FM Towns version) and for some reason the graphics are squished up into the top 3/4 of the screen. I've toyed with the graphic settings, but so far nothing has worked. Has anybody else experienced this issue? BTW, I also installed the PC CD-Rom version for comparison, and it ...

You don't know if you compressed the music/speech/cutscene files?
I'll take a look and let you know when I get home.

Curse of Monkey Island Crash

I just ran into another issue; Curse of Monkey Island seems to shut down my PSP just after I get out of the ship at the beginning...

i.e. [SPOILER ALERT...]

...after I cut the glass with the diamond.

Is this a common problem? I've only tried it once. I believe I'm running a compressed version.

Since I have already paid for all of those games (3 times over in some cases), would you still consider it unscrupulous to download the FM Towns version? This was explained many times. If you own a red BMW, does it give you the right to take black one for free? Especially in the light of prices of ...

I find for most games it's easy to buy a copy of the PC version, but much harder to find any other version (at least on eBay). While I'd love to try out other versions, I take whatever I can get. I actually own all of those games in various versions and formats, but I don't own the FM Towns version...

What are the best versions of each game?

I just installed ScummVM on my PSP for the first time last night, and I am blown away. So now of course I have to try all the games out. If I had to choose one de-facto version of each game, which one would you recommend? By version, I'm referring to platform/media/variant, e.g. PC CD, PC Floppy VGA...
