It's a pity about KQ5 since that is the most egregious case. I remember playing it 10+ years ago and wondering where is the text. Anyway, about the in-graphics for the 'both' button, why don't you hold a competition for a button graphic on the same style with GPL attribution? It's not like style is ...

It's pretty easy to do a daily build ppa if the program compiles easily and without non-system libraries. I did it myself for a few programs.

Yes i see it. Pretty funky the dos interpreter is able to use that kind of resolution (the images almost fill my 1366x768 display. I did try but it refused to replace the image (that btw, changed from 100.p56 to 11000. v 56) It must be checking the size. And the other one too (100.v56 to 10100.v56),...

Actually... is there some kind of cache on the interpreter? That could explain it. There's a 'RESOURCE.ALT' and 'ALT.MAP' here i'm sadly suspicious of. edit: it's not a cache, as proven by moving it out of the game; not found blahblah. However it does contain resources. Possibly some windows version...

I'm just looking for possibilities. It's pretty strange that the hack works on the DOS version works on scummvm but the 'windows' one doesn't.

And strange that the gabriel knight interpreter doesn't want to replace it, since it's not one of the early games.

audio = .\;.\sfx;.\patches;.\aud
sync = .\aud
movieDir = .\seq
patchDir = .\;.\patches

This from the SHP installer. I will try to reverse the patchDir line, though it shouldn't make any difference since the files are not on .
edit: nope.

Lol the CLI version includes a different GUI version. But no, that didn't help unfortunately. The game never did output a error in dosbox, just refused to change if placed on the patches dir. dosbox DOS version does not work Windows version does the same in scummvm scummvm DOS version works. Maybe t...

Either wine is failing or that is a different version. The only one i can find is version 'SV version 1' (from the help), and the title in wine is only 'SV' and it doesn't have the '+' in the tree widget

I just tried it under DosBox and that method did not work, the game was complaining about bad compression. But I did get it to work under DosBox when using SCI Resource Viewer instead to extract the 100.p56 and 100.v56-files. I'm guessing ScummVM isnt as picky as the original interpreter at some po...

edit: didn't see the post above Strangely it worked (from a git compile, since the ubuntu repos don't have SCI enable) when adding the DOS CD version, but not with the Windows CD version (they have the same entry on the detection tables and come from the same install). Also the game run on dosbox do...

Thank you for the complete answer. Question: does it also work in dosbox (is it a native capability of SCI or is it just a scummvm one?)

Dirty question regarding SCI

I'd like to do a small hack. The Gabriel Knight 1 sins of the fathers intro screen was 'updated' on the CD version from this: http://www.mobygames.com/images/shots/l/15728-gabriel-knight-sins-of-the-fathers-dos-screenshot-alternate.gif to this: http://www.mobygames.com/images/shots/l/9884-gabriel-kn...
