Had my pledge in early-on as well (and have bumped it up one tier since). Certainly looking forward to some more of the story :D

Never played 7th Guest, always remember seeing ads in comic books and stuff in the 90's and thinking it looked awesome though. The price is right, I'll give it a bash ;-) If you feel the need for a larger screen or a mouse, you can also extract the .ipa package on the computer somewhere and point S...

Sad that the team feels Facebook is a better medium for news posting rather than your own site :roll: Sad that you jump to that conclusion... I'm don't know if you actually clicked through, but (and this is my personal opinion) the additional fun little tidbits being as the TsAGE SLOC count aren't ...

Progress on Groovie, a little (see the music enhancement project).

As for 11H support, it gets poked at now and then but nothing groundbreaking to report.

Clandestiny (and, apparently, Uncle Henry) appear to not use XMI music, hence the missing file. Invalid header is an interesting one though - seems they kept tweaking the engine slightly between each game.

What was the error message? The game certainly wouldn't have been playable but I'd have expected at least the Groovie logo to start.

Sounds like ch.rl is missing - double-check that you copied it off the game discs.

Don't need to. Copy the apk to the phone, open it via a file browser (Astro, ES File Explorer, etc) and install it from there.

I think it's just laziness and trying to make a fast buck.. You may call it that, but they could view it in terms of cost benefit. For all the other puzzles, the scripts themselves run the puzzles - just for the microscope, they would have needed to port extra code over. Obviously, time spent fixin...

Microscope puzzle would involve porting the AI over, but I can't see any 'technical' issue that would have prevented the piano puzzle - perhaps it was culled to stop the frustration :wink:

It looks like they've just increased the framerate for the video files that don't contain audio (hence several visual sequences are out of sync with the midi music - much like the Windows player). Not sure whether it's just a linear increase or slightly slower at the start/end to smooth the look a b...

Not much else I can say here, other than we/I am aware of that issue. The VDX decoder is somewhat inefficient, and optimisation is something that would be nice in the future. The interesting thing is that the unofficial SDL version somehow 'works' (ie, the sound isn't choppy), so that may be a worka...

Please don't cut out half of the things I said. I actually said that there should be a guideline about enhancements in general and we also shouldn't just make changes without any proper discussion. IMO, they're separate issues - 'There's no guidelines, so we can't change the default since it doesn'...

I have a problem with just changing the default, because a few people complain. *cough* No double standards please. I seem to recall it being argued that the console only had a few complaints too, and technically the current default is show console. First of all, I was talking about the internal di...
