I'm pretty sure the exception supersedes the general rule. I'm pretty sure your behavior in your latest posts in this topic was not too nice. Also I do not see any "exception", which superseeds this rule to be honest, but you might want to clarify what you are talking about. If it's the (...

The people doing this for free on their own time will return and post here if they want to. It's unfair to pester them. You should all know better.

Please Jonatan...aren't you the first person to jump on people with "it'll be done when it's done" comments? Take your own advice and stop pestering people that do this work on their own free time.

There are simply no resources in the team to do that. I, being the release manager, struggle even with the port builders , i.e. those folks who need to launch GCC on their respective platform and upload the binary. Current trend which we are propagate is exactly the opposite: reuse the code as much...

Re: Boxer vs ScummVM

package support (a way to encapsulate a bunch of related files into a single file) allowing the user to launch the game from the Finder or Spotlight Well, not exactly. A Mac application bundle isn't a file. It's a disguised folder, the top-level folder for a program with the actual binary and relat...

Boxer vs ScummVM

While I really much love the ScummVM project and how far it's progressed, there's something I very much hate about it: the interface. ScummVM's engines are top notch and, honestly, I think that's the most important. But I do believe that now that support for many of the most popular 80s and early 90...

How hard can that be? MI4 controls are equivalent in stupidity as driving a real car with arrow keys on the keyboard, up being moving the car north.

Judging by the screenshots on the App Store, the shader effects are not there.

I saw an interview with the sound guy, and the were actually talking about how great it was having Dom do all the lines since he already knew the game like the back of his hand and didn't even have to reherse them that much. They called him the ultimate fanboy. Face it, your idea of what guybrush s...

Lemme guess, Mark Hamill is an excellent actor in Star Wars? Right? Yes. Your point is? I think it's sufficiently clear at this point. It's also clear that Dom was just given the lines without the context and told to read them. How else can he Guybrush not sound shy when speaking to Elaine for the ...

The voicework is uniformly excellent. I understand if you don't like the direction they went with MI3, but let's not cast dispersions on Dom's ability to "get it right" because this version doesn't sound exactly like what was going through your head almost two decades ago. Is this suppose...

No doubt but Dom still fails to capture that feeling.

Things like "I am Guybrush Threepwood, prepare to die" is classic Princess Bride stuff and Dom can't even get *THAT* right.
