Okay, I have finished Dreamweb MS-DOS-Version twice now.

Sometimes, the last dialog in the subway tunnel doesn't play. I couldn't really reproduce it as it seems to happen randomly.

Other than that, I couldn't find any problems

Elvira: Mistress of the Dark - Video Review

Hey everyone!

I recently made a video review on youtube about Elvira and since it's a game that is supported by ScummVm, I thought maybe you're interested.

It's here:

English isn't my first language so I hope you can get past my accent.

Great news! Coincidentally, I just wanted to play Dreamweb again and maybe make a video review about it. First, I was a little disappointed when the graphics appeared to be too bright but then I discovered the checkbox in the engine options of the game to turn this overbright-mode off. If there's on...

Sam & Max is actually a pretty good adventure but I agree, the interface wasn't as great. Still, I don't think it's that bad. Maybe you just need a couple more pointers. Go here: http://www.uhs-hints.com UHS is not a walkthrough and will only give you the hints you need. But I played it without ...

I'm even stranger. I pretty much don't care how long a game is as long as it's good. So I don't measure how long my initial playthrough of a game takes. I do, however, sometimes measure (well, approximately) how long a playthrough takes once I know what needs to be done. Discworld 1 for example. It ...

Hey everyone! I know this is an old topic but I wanted to give it a second chance. I think it deserves it! :) I still believe that ScummVM would benefit immensely from a cheating option. Not only would it make testing a lot easier (granted, there isn't all that much to test anymore) but an adventure...

Oooh!! It's now included? Great!

You know, I love the voice acting but for some reason, I just can't life with the graphics.
And, honestly, switching to the old graphics in the special edition sucks.

Sorry for chiming in so late but I just wanted to give my two cents as well. I always use the DOS version. First of all because I always keep my CM-32L (a MT-32 variant if you will) hooked to my PC and so I enjoy superior MIDI music. Second, I use the DOS versions because they allow me to use VGA gr...

May I ask a short question at this point?

I am a collector (much like Collector) and try to have about all adventure games. I bought a CD version of Ringworld but it was essentially just a floppy version on a CD (like Blue Force).

Does a real CD version exist (like for Return to Ringworld)?

Are you sure, Mau1wurf1977? I tested it and compared practically all my Sierra and Dynamix games with MT32 recordings from Queststudios and they all sound exactly the same on my CM-32L - both in DOSBox and (as far as support goes) in ScummVM. I think that it is a myth made up by a lazy supporter way...

Excellent! I hope this will add support for "return to Ringworld" and "Blue Force" somewhere down the road.

My list looks similarly. I actually own all of them - some even multiple times. :-) And, yes, I even own an original CD version of both Zak McKracken and Loom for the FM Towns. To be fair, I bought this off ebay long before ScummVM existed because I misread the item description and thought they woul...

While I think the built in GUI is good, I do agree that some additional features would be welcome. Like screenshots, maybe a cool icon, some additional information (since you only support a limited set of games, you wouldn't even need a feature to get these infos from mobygames) and, yes, a way to i...
