SQ4CD crash to console

Playing Space Quest 4 CD Dos using the latest ScummVM snapshots, whenever I try to view the Catalog at Hz So Good, the ScummVM console opens. This isn't an issue in the latest stable build. Should I file a bug report anyway?

It certainly makes sense (for both story and game mechanics purposes) that the stores close when the Sequel Police arrive, but it doesn't make sense that they stay closed, especially considering that you have to return to the mall to buy or exchange the PocketPal adapter, and they're no longer around.

I played through it through DOSBox, and it exhibited the same behavior, so it does look like it's just a very unfortunate dead end. On other not, I don't know who fixed the missing points bug when Roger changes out of the dress after using the ATM, but I've very grateful to them. That's been bugging...

Space Quest IV: Is this a bug?

I'm playing through Space Quest IV CD. I've already gotten new pants and escaped from the Sequel Police through the skating rink, gone to Ulence Flats and returned. The problem is, Sacks (or Socks) is closed and is staying closed, so I'm not able to buy the dress to use the ATM.

I've been using Scumm games to learn foreign languages for years. The usefulness of such a feature would be hard to overstate.

I second what clone said; however, I remember when I played through it last time with ScummVM that the inventory icons get a bit jumbled up as you amass them. Try selecting different inventory items, and one of them will hopefully by the clay mold, even though it may not look like it in the inventory.

I had a lot of the same feelings about the game, Robot Maker. I wanted to like it, but it left a bad feeling with me, for a number of reasons.

This may the one time I completely disagree with what you're saying, clone. I slightly prefer Myst ME to RealMyst, but owning both was worth the 7 or so dollars I spent on them together at gog.

I remember when I first upgraded to the talkie version of LB2 just finding the voices unbearable, so I just continued to play it in text mode (the only true benefit being some bug fixes and skipping the copy protection). In dual mode, however, even some of the really bad voices are bearable, and I e...

Dagger of Amon Ra dual mode

I just started playing Laura Bow 2 for the first time in years, and I couldn't help but notice it now has a dual text-and-speech option. To whomever made this happen... Thanks!!

I would absolutely donate to a kickstarter for the ip rights for Space Quest to go back to Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe. Or for Monkey Island to go back to Ron Gilbert.

I wish someone would port AGS to Mac. I'm always recommending AGS games to people who can't play them, it seems.
