Topic: Woodruff slow animations

I think that adjusting the game's pace to the background animations FPS is plain silly (it's really irritating, gameplay-wise). I know it requires some work, but could it be made possible to disable it, maybe in the options? Unfortunately, that's not just "some work", that would require completely ...

That sounds very much like a script bug, unfortunately. The scripts at that point in the game have some timing-related issues, and are prone to break when doing some things at inopportune points in time. This also makes these issues quite hard to debug and work around. If you have no save at an earl...

Re: Woodruff slow animations

whenever an animation plays (like the periscope moving in water on the very first screen) I experience slowdowns: the character moves slower, etc. Yes, that's "normal", I'm afraid. That's also what the original does, as far as I remember. The reason is that those animations are VMD videos, and they...

Nope, you need the latest development build, not a stable build. The stable build is still 1.7.0, which is not what you want in your case.

I'm not even sure how much they bothered to change at all... Depends on who you mean. I didn't mention anyone in particular; I was talking in the general sense. There's several people/companies who bundled ScummVM with games. Some violated the GPL. Some didn't. Some changed a lot. Some didn't. And ...

You're kinda mixing up three separate issues together here. 1) As far as I understand it (but I am not a lawyer), it's like this: the situation with the GPLv3 is quite clear. Due to its anti-tivoization clauses, it clashes with the concept of a closed system, like Apple's AppStore. However, with the...

Just for the record, Pix's ScummVM site would be this here: http://www.pixsoriginadventures.co.uk/scummvm/ (needs JavaScript for the navigation), and there's also the full corresponding source with the changes (which are mostly about audio, it seems): http://www.pixsoriginadventures.co.uk/scummvm/sc...

Both of you should check the current source code for SNES9x 1) That's not the point. 2) We don't take orders from you. I will bring this subject up with the guys over at SNES9x Unless you personally wish to do the work (and from what I know about SNES9x, it's not a matter of simply copying over cod...

Re: Myst and Riven

That being said, I think it would be worth the effort to implement .cg filter plugins Our scaler/filter code is relatively static, and mostly hardcoded. It also currently mixes scaling (2x, 3x, hq2x, ...) with output method (SDL backend allows 2D surface or OpenGL) and effect filters (scanlines, do...

Huh, there once was a similar bug: http://sourceforge.net/p/scummvm/bugs/2999/ , which was fixed at that point. I can reproduce the bug begin there again in my CD version too, though. Damn. Now, though, the reason seems to be different, because the case-insensitive compare is still in place, and it ...

Support for Zork: Grand Inquisitor was added only (relatively) recently, after the latest version of ScummVM, 1.7.0, was released. That means that ScummVM 1.7.0 doesn't include support for Zork: Grand Inquisitor . You need to either wait for the next stable release of ScummVM or try one of the daily...
