Second :
I have an original French copy of Monkey Island 1 that is on a CD. It includes the CD release of the game, but doesn't include the mp3 files.
There were no MP3 files distributed with any Monkey Island game. You have to make them yourself from the audio tracks on the CD...

Re: Infrastructure updates

The difference between "new posts" and "no new posts" is hardly noticeable anymore. it's just the slight color change on the border around the circle. This makes those two icons very hard to differentiate.

Topic: Framecap in ScummVM?
Replies: 9

No, there is nothing even close to that. Engines call screen update up to 200 times per second, and normally there are dirty rectangles involved, so the frames are not even redrawn. The FPS topic normally belongs to hardware or hardware emulators. ScummVM is none of these. Eugene Ahh so technically...

Visual Novel are not rejected per se, but currently the only visual novels proposed were (at the very least) erotic, so they were vetoed. Do you have a title in mind? Well, to be honest I have nothing particular in mind (yet). It's just that I have been thinking on what type of game engine I could ...

I'll chime in here with a similar question: How about "Visual Novel" style games? They are very similar to at least one game that's already in ScummVM (plumbers), so they might actually be in-scope, right?

If you compile ScummVM with libpng, screenshots are automatically saved in .png format instead of .bmp. What build are you using? As for your second problem, you can order the screenshots by Creation Date in Windows Explorer, that will show them in the correct order. Or only delete them at the very ...

One question. Are the color of the liquid in the barrels be recorded in the autonotes? I am not sure, and maybe I am confusing about how it works in might and magic 6 instead. In case it should be recorded in the diary I can say It is not the case. Greetings No, this was never in Xeen 4 / 5. I also...

What do you mean by "slow scalers"? I mean, even on my 6 year old rig the scalers impose no frame rate drop, they don't even increase CPU load measurably.

/NODEFAULTLIB:MSVCRT ist just to remove a linker warning. This can lead to quite hard-to-track-down errors later on.

Oh boy, I remember "playing" that one a few years ago. Was a bit creepy but still cool. Never finished it (is there even an end?). Later I found many of the locations from the game (and read about the folklore) during my time in Kyoto.

Ah, the memories :)
