I'm installing all of my games.

Into digital form. Bought a 300 GB external drive. :D . Ok i have a problem with dos/scummvm games. In those cases i like to have both the native game and scummvm version available, but duplicating files is verbotten to me. So i ended up using the mount command of dosbox when i can. If you mount a d...

I'm intrigued now. I don't recall the game being even a real 3d engine (not sure). It had (i think) no Z axis movement, like lands of lore.

Oh, btw i had to set sound to "emulated" instead of "hardware" in winecfg, otherwise it eventually hanged, This is a recurring problem in various games with wine in my hardware.

I know for sure that KQ5 & 6 CD version suffer from this. QFG4 does not. There are probably more early sierra cd games like this.

Well i did manage to extract the files and make a RESOURCE.WIN that goes ingame but i doubt it will work when the game tries to change the disk, unlike broken sword. BS had two different lines in the config file, equivalent to two different disc. Antara depends on a ";" separator (that i used to put...

I have a subtitle patch for GK2. http://www.sierrahelp.com/Patches-Updates/Patches-Updates-Games/GK2SubtitlePatch.html Would love to use that one with GK2 and ScummVM some day in the future :) With subtitles and no disc-swapping, the game will be as good as it can be! You can have that today. I did...

That's interesting. I've had to use a virtual machine just to copy the files too. Also isobuster had the same problem inside windows. Only explorer could read it and only from the cd. Damnnnnn.

Even the Antara executable may have some sort SCI script engine there. A simple hex edit and search for SCI finds a lot. "required after SCI+extender loaded (1M default)" "bytes excluded from SCI usage" "RESSCI" The resource.win file also follows the typical sierra pattern. Doubt it is a coincidence...

If only the "adventure" games used sci what is the realms demo in that cd doing with such files as "sciw.exe" or "version".

I put the cd in the drive. If it isn't SCI the data folder structure seems suspiciously like it. Especially the resources files and the suspiciously named ressci.001 file ./000.000 ./3dres.000 ./antara.gid ./antara.hlp ./antara.ico ./antarar.exe ./autoplay.bmp ./autoplay.exe ./autorun.inf ./billbrd ...

Yeah but who trusts wiki? Joe user sees a similar output, and presto, updated version of the engine. I'm thinking that dynamix was folded into sierra, and that at that times all sierra games were a variant of SCI.
