So, this definitely isn't what the original artists intended. Just another interpretation, like fin said. Just because one artist says so doesn't mean that this is valid for everyone. In particular one artist who was not one of the original artists, so it's even less relevant Especially because thi...

In particular the light and dark brown used on the doors / cabinets now has a much higher contrast (to my perception, at least) than the original (dithered) one Actually those cels are not dithered at all :) They are only detected as being dithered and then "undithered", but that's wrong. Normally ...

For example, the shelves on the left and right side of the room, if you look at their sides closely, then in the undithered version, they are clearly messed up -- the "L"-shaped light brown lines are merged in the undithered version, which looks wrong, while in the dithered version, it looks perfec...

just fyi: you may also use the command "undither 0/1" while playing the game. Changes will get applied when entering another room afterwards.

EDIT: don't use this way anymore, instead set "sci_undither=1" in scummvm.ini or even use the GUI option, if available.

Theoretically this should be possible, but because of some games depending on signals from the actual music one would need to actually play MIDI/adlib silently and play the MP3 on top of it. Also I'm not sure if any MP3 sounds better than MT32. Like someone already said: SCI is wip and our main conc...
