Does this fix the problem in Codename ICEMAN? Some of the submarine controls were using the numpads area such as the +/- keys for throttle. Last time I tried it didn't worked and I have to use mouse to steer the throttle. And even after plugging my USB keyboard didn't really help. Btw, I'm playing u...

I hear you man. For example: on SQ3, right after the opening sequence, where Roger was about to exit the shuttle, the sound of the pod opening and closing can be heard on MT-32 emulation, while there are no sound played using FluidSynth. I have made comparisons on my own preference, and while most o...

That is working if you played the remake VGA version. The old SCI still needs that keyword. Btw, never mind about that. I was wrong about the keyword. It took several restarts to get the right ones. Mine was: Schweinhund Btw, these could be the other keyword (you still have to confirm with the thiev...

I have to agree with Ken W here. The games look phenomenal without the dithering. Great job, m_kiewitz. MI, Lamb, c'mon, guys, you don't have to turn every Sierra related forum out there into a debating nightmare ;) It gets extremely impossible and frustrating to deal with you guys sometimes, and t...

Things really got heated up here. Anyway, you guys should cool down a bit. In my assumption, each other party were really do a bit forcing their own opinion. For one thing, I do like the undithering version. However, I understand how he (MusicallyInspired) feels about the dithered version. It's just...

I did notice that object that can be interacted were still left dithered on undithered scenes. Pretty weird actually. And although I kinda enjoy the undithered version, I have to agree regarding the comparison on QFG1. I'm not a big fan of dots, but it does help blend the scenery. I wonder if there'...

not really. It does attracts me. It's like Sierra'a Museum of Wonders. Along with Queststudios too. :D It would be great if they could also add extra content such as makings, sketches, etc. And it was nice to read the manual and hint books, not only as a guide for playing the games, but as some sort...

Btw, I forgot to mention a small bug (though it helps if it works). Since I'm playing with my notebook ASUS UL30VT, I cannot use the numeric +- to control the submarine speed, even after turning on/off NumLock. Tried connecting with USB keyboard and that 2 button are still not responding. I had to r...

I'm not sure. Ken already sold out all his share. If he didn't, he sure wouldn't let that Black-chainsaw monday to happen in the first place. That moment still grieves me till this day.

I do understand that. This discussion actually talk about the original bugs, not bugs from ScummVM. And I do appreciate the special effort u guys made. Simply having SCI supported already makes me very happy. :D I just want to explore further more, and hopefully not making too much rouse. Besides, I...
