What you said here:- "damn. i dislike being dependent on a program to run a game - be it dosbox or scummvm, but these old games with their aversion to full installs make me do it." Any chance of explaining why? You never know - maybe we can reassure you. I'm talking about the single failure mode of...

I have a version of the game that has all the music as wav uncompressed, not as a music.clu, so i don't need a seperate music dir. However there are some musics with repeated filenames. Anyone know if they are really the same?

Actually it worked. I was missing the cd1.id file. There is probably a cd2.id file too. Instructions: 1) install max size 2) copy every missing music and speech files to your dir, modify the speech dir of each cd to speech1 & speech2. Copy the cd1.id and cd2.id files too. i made a symlink in the spe...

but i do own the cds my friend with it's actual parisian background in orange and mauve (?). Anyway i thought of a way to run the cd version, but only on dosbox. The mount command accepts mounting a dir as a cd. So mount current dir in batch file copy files and its almost done. The only possible nig...

I was planning to have a mega installation (with the data files and the executables for dos, windows, and a sym link for the speech files with the name scummvm expects). The dos and windows merging seems to work with the cd and the symlink to the scummvm speech files works (symlink speech1.clu and s...

Does broken sword 1 allow a full installation?

Not in scummvm, but the original games. The sword.inf file seems like it should hold the paths to the needed files, but when i edit them to look relative it still ask for the cd. I know one of those files is duplicated but different (speech\speech.clu) but as the lines are duplicated too in the swor...

Think i put it to work. Downloaded the movies.

The *.da files don't appear to be needed?

Anyway, this is obviously not the best version, but it is what i have.
The pixelated backgrounds are bad, but what really hurts is the font. Anyway to change it to the pc version font?

I'd need to actually delete them i think.

I like using ide's and they parse everything by default.

I suppose there is a standard "common" namespace?

Tried to check out the code (as i said i wanted to check out dune and seeing how you handle other engines seemed like a good first step) Was horrified by the 300 mb project. Gave up because i'm used to java project that compile relatively quickly. Even there the fix-compile-test cycle annoys me - i ...
