Sightly OT: X-Wing mission differences between editions

Hi! I am aware this is slightly OT for ScummVM, but as this is Lucasfilm related and I expect some veteran gamers from the 90s here I hope it is tolerable in the junkyard... My question: Lucasfilms spaceflight simulator X-Wing was originally released in 1993 and had two enhanced re-releases in 1994 ...

Re: ScummVM 2.1.0 “Electric Sheep” has been produced.

Hi!
Forgive me asking again, but are there any news on the Linux packages?
I am on Debian Buster, there won't be a new release soon and the chance of seeing ScummVM 2.1.0 in backports is rather low...
Thanks!

What happened to startrek-engine-support

Hi! I just wanted to ask what happened to the startrek-engine that runs 25th Anniversary and Judgment Rites? AFAIR a GSoC student worked on it in 2018 and the resulting code was merged into master. As the first release after this, 2.1.0, does not contain support I wonder wheatear there is still some...

Re: Location of INI-file and relative paths for portable use

Hi! Aside from being not a dev but an (perhaps advanced, I don't know) user who only donated a small amount of money instead of code: I support an optional portable solution for Windows! I too don't get why other devs are fighting it so fiercely and say forking ScummVM would be the only possible way...

Re: Is The Serrated Scalpel for 3DO Supported on ScummVM?

Hello! After playing The serrated Scalpel on DOS back in the 90s I recently bought the 3DO version to enjoy full speech. Is there any chance this version will be supported by ScummVM in a future release? If I understand it correctly it was working but support was dropped when cleaning up the code? C...

Re: Location of INI-file and relative paths for portable use

If there's any particular interest, I can try to build a version that would respect a "marker file" like "is_portable" and if such a file is present, automagically set all paths including the configuration relative to the ScummVM directory for "real" portable use. @a.borque: Would that solve your i...

Location of INI-file and relative paths for portable use

Hello! If I read the documentation correctly ScummVM stores the INI-file somewhere in the users home-directory and needs absolute paths to the game-directories. I don't know how much coding-work it would cost, ot whether it contradicts some ScummVM-design-philosophy, but would it be possible to allo...

Hi there,

having a .zip release sounds like a good idea. I'll see what I can do about this. I doubt that the PortableApps version will be back soon...

EDIT: Check out https://www.scummvm.org/downloads again :)
Thanks a lot! :D

What happened to the portable and ZIP versions for Windows?

Hello! AFAIR there were ZIP-releases without an installer for previous releases of ScummVM. Even longer ago there was also a version for PortableApps. For the latest release I can not find a ZIP version and the version offered by PortableApps ist terribly outdated. Are there technical reasons for th...

When was lucasforums.com closed?

Hello! Okay, I have to admit I did not have too much time for years to take care of any LucasArts related stuff. Right now I had some free time and I noticed that many popular sites seem to have closed down in the past years. For many pages you can find something, but the one I miss most is lucasfor...

Monkey Island Special Editions on iOS - Still playable?

Hello! I bought Monkey Island SE and Monkey Island 2 SE for iOS when they were released. I know Disney retired support in 2014(Why can't they simply admit they didn't earn enough money with it and have to state that it was a difficult decision instead which is hardly believable?) and both apps were ...

Hmm, this sounds impossible or at least very, very expensive...

My understanding was the Ron Gilbert "only" wants a license that grants all artistic freedom to him?!

Petitioning for Ron Gilberts Monkey Island 3

Hello! Doing a quick search shows various petitions asking Disney (or formerly LucasArts) to grant Ron Gilbert a license to do "his" Monkey Island 3. This version could show the ending of the triology as it was originally intended by him and might bring a proper solution for the rather disturbing en...

Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes: Compressed Game-Data-Files?

Hello! Thanks for supporting Lost-files-games. As far as I can remember the setup of "The serrated scalpel" offered two options of installation, one with compressed and one with expanded game-data-files. Unfortunately I am unable to recover all bits from my old 5,25"-FDDs, so I only have one install...
