The saved games are supposed to be compatible. I would have to look into that. Are both of your platforms hanging or just PPC Mac? And where exactly is it hanging? Could it be music related somehow? EDIT: Ah, I see. There was a bug in the SCI script patcher, which caused it not to work properly on B...

You should have gotten the dress and raided the ATM before escaping the sequel police.

I guess you found a dead-end.

I'm not sure if GOG uses ScummVM for Police Quest.

IF they do, then you can simply copy the saved games over.
If they use DOSBox instead and the original Sierra interpreter, then it's not possible.

Re: ScummVM Release 1.8.0 Testing is Starting

Hello, thanks for this fast answer. I don't know if it's an official patch. I have not the original link, i found it on another forum. But I put the patch on my google drive. I have just removed the URL just in case. Your holmes.zip contained a holmes.exe, which is even UPX-packed. I don't know whe...

You could try to move the game name to the end of the parameters.

So like this:

"P:\Composite\Stage 1\ed software\ScummVM\scummvm.exe" -f --config="P:\Composite\Stage 1\ed software\scummvm.ini" grandma-win

Topic: Adding subtitles to audio only games (proposed method)
Replies: 11

I just added a bit of code into ScummVM, so that King's Quest 7 can be switched to audio + subtitles mode directly. You can patch your own game to make that work with the original interpreter (SCI32 support in ScummVM is unstable at the moment). You will need a bit of technical knowledge. This is do...

So far, it was most noticeable in Quest For Glory 2. Several instances (such as the Iblis's Tome) where something will happen, in the last case I recall where rocks are supposed to fall from the ceiling to block the door, and it used a screen wipe or pixelation mid-scene. One would have to check wi...

Thanks for the reply! It's been more noticeable with the Quest for Glory series. There's certain parts where the scene hasn't changed, but there's a transition sequence as things in the scene change (such as environment elements shifting). This ends up with the middle of the scene being interrupted...

What's strange about them? They should normally take a few hundred milliseconds at worst. I think there was an issue on some computers, where they took several seconds. That issue should be fixed in daily builds (and 1.8.0 as soon as it's released). If they take several seconds for you, please downl...

I have a question about King's Quest VI: is there any chance to "enable" subtitles in the intro sequence of the CD version as in the floppy ones?

Cheers.
The CD version uses actual video files for the intro. So there is no way (except that we add subtitles ourselves).

Right, although I think we wanted to implement an audio-only mode for 3DO anyway :p
