Re: Loom: EGA vs. VGA Script Differences

I think one of the strangest little differences between the EGA and VGA version is if you try to pick up the Book of Patterns near the start of the game. In the EGA version, Bobbin will say "This is the Book of Patterns that Hetchel lets me read sometimes. Better take it with me." and he d...

Re: Loom: EGA vs. VGA Script Differences

Of course Prof. Moriarty has stated (thankfully) that he considers the original EGA version the definitive; and I wholeheartedly agree. Sadly, and quite annoyingly, no digital store distributes that one for some reason. (I do have the original box with the floppies and the audio drama tape though!)...

Re: Loom: EGA vs. VGA Script Differences

Firstly I want to ask if there's a quicker alternative; I guess it would be possible to use some tool to extract and decode the game scripts, but I doubt that's actually quicker than playing the two versions side by side and trying to find all the relevant object interactions. You probably want to ...

That's what I figured, but the Wiki currently says "*.exe".

It doesn't need all *.exe files though, does it? (On my CD, that would be dos4gw.exe, install.exe, lba.exe and loadpats.exe.)

Re: Gabriel Knight 1: restoring savegame is impossible.

I was able to reproduce the problem (or at least cause a very similar one) by removing the file called VERSION from my game. I guess ScummVM writes the information from that file to the savegame, but if it's missing it just writes random garbage there instead. I guess VERSION is a necessary file, bu...

Re: Tony tough

Riven should be ok, because left click and drag is working... mostly. It needs a fix to make it working 100% but, as is currently, there is still an easy way to make it work. Ah, I missed the "double tap" thing. Yeah, it works but it's a bit fiddly on a phone. Then again, if I ever make a...

Re: Tony tough

Unfortunately I don't own Tony Tough nor the Beavis & Butthead game. But I can see the issue on the Beavis & Butthead demo we have on the ScummVM site. So I'll try to debug with that one. It looks like the game expects to click and hold right mouse button and drag the cursor to select the a...

Re: You Cannot Comprehend It

These three are also freely available at the IF-Archive . There is also, however, a re-release of Transylvania also available for free from the Graphics Magician website which isn't yet supported. Of the games on the Graphics Magician website (which, from what I understand, is run by the original P...

Re: The Red Comrades game series goes supported

Unfortunately, only the original Russian Windows versions are supported. The English versions for iOS and Android use a completely different engine. I assume the Windows/Mac/Linux version sold on Steam are the same as the iOS/Android version, since the description for at least the first part says t...

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...
