Re: Problem/Bug in Curse of Monkey Island on PC

You may want to file a bug report, and include a save game so people can test it to see what's happening. (I haven't played the game in many years myself, so I don't remember any of the details.)

Re: Nightdive Studios - Blade Runner Enhanced Edition

Apparently it's been delayed, though: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020 ... o-remaster

Anyway, I'm firmly in the "wait and see" camp. There have been some impressive remasters over the years. Others... not so much.

Re: What happened to MonkeyUpdate.exe for Escape From Monkey Island

It looks like Disney has a page for updates and patches for the LucasArts games now. Which I didn't really expect, to be honest.

Re: Quest for Glory V?

Actually wasn't aware of it. Are there any Windows supported games for any classics that had no DOS versions (be it the original Scumm, SCI games, the Inherit the Earth remake, etc.)? Looking at the compatibility list for ScummVM 2.2.0, there are at the very least The Curse of Monkey Island, The Fe...

Re: Loom FM Towns - 2 different version of soundtrack

Have you ever noticed this? I might have noticed when I ripped the audio from my CD, but I didn't remember it afterwards. Does anyone know if the alternative tracks were actually used or not when running on a real FM-Towns? (I guess one set of track could have been for the Japanese version, or it c...

Re: Help Gnap to Repair His U.F.O.!

Has anyone else had a crash early on when first leaving the farm? I can’t get past it, the cutscene shows the truck driving to the city then it crashes saying ERROR: Gamesys: :drawbitmap() Error loading the bitmap! I’ll submit it to the bugtracker but figured I’d ask if there’s a setting, perhaps a...

I couldn't find neither the game nor the engine when filing a new bug report. Did I miss them, or haven't they been added yet?

Re: Puzzle randomisation in Fate of Atlantis

Sophia's advice seems to be based on how you get past Biff the doorman. I don't have the time to verify, but it seems like if you beat him in a fair fight, Sophia will tell you that "but you are better better with your fists than your head." If you sucker-punch him or you talk your way pas...

Re: You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike

Is "frotz" a different engine or just the name of an interpreter/program? And will it be (is it?) supported too? Frotz is an interpreter for Infocom's Z-Machine. The name comes from one of the spells in the Enchanter series. It wasn't the first one to appear after the demise of Infocom (t...

Re: Linux: Soundfonts default to AdLib emulation

I've done that--selecting FluidSynth as the MIDI device and pointing it to the SoundFont. The error I mentioned seems to suggest a configuration problem with FluidSynth itself, so I'll try asking the team there. Just thought someone here may have had the same issue so I decided to ask here first. A...

Re: Linux: Soundfonts default to AdLib emulation

Longtime user of ScummVM on Windows here who is contemplating a switch to Linux. As the subject field indicates, I'm trying to configure a SoundFont to improve music quality over my computer's integrated audio, but SCUMMVM defaults to the default AdLib emulation even when I have FluidSynth installe...

Re: More Games that Run On SCUMMVM and HELP?

I believe most interpreters just ignore them these days (unless some kind of strict mode is on). The default for Frotz is to report the first occurrence of an error. That's how I know they sometimes happen in Infocom's games as well, though as Zarf pointed out it's pretty rare indeed. The easily re...

Re: Monkey Island 2: Le Chuck's Revenge

From what I can see... The graphics for Monkey Island 2 are 320x200 pixels. Sounds (sound effects or music) can exist in several different versions for either PC Speaker, AdLib or Roland MT-32. I believe there is Roland MT-32 versions of all the music, but some of the sound effects exist only as AdL...
