Well, the classics are fairly different from the newer titles, I don't know how cross-compatible you could make the engine, could you make one that can run such different versions? Maybe. I've seen a few other engines do it. (Off the top of my head, AGS, Mohawk, AGI)

Wait, all of them? Oh boy...

(The shitty part is, I think in theory the Nimbus SPUTM should support the other games besides the classics, bugs from unfinished implementation notwithstanding. Like the port of Race... which they put out anyway.)

So the game doesn't begin on a field then? Cause that's what the cracked version does. (One of its many bugs.) You can easily see it on youtube, it seems most videos are played with pirate copies! Hmm, well, I believe Scummvm refuses to detect the cracked version as well (I assume on purpose) and I ...

Which Version of Gold Rush on Steam?

I see Gold Rush (the original AGI game) is currently on sale on Steam. Now I'm wondering, what did they do about the game's copy protection? Did they just upload the (buggy) pirated version? (Yes, that's very common.) Did they leave the protection intact? Did they remove it some other way that doesn...

Trust me, it isn't legal issues.

EDIT: I think I should make note of this though, Russian Pajama Sam 2 can't be added to Steam because Scummvm doesn't support it!

What exactly do you mean by "tampered?" This intrigues me.

Yeah, that's why I wondered. They already released another of their adventures, Teenagent, free on the site. But that game had the luck of being translated in English.

Cool! I had a look, it lets you select to play in English too! When you select that, it crashes looking for a file named prince_translation.dat. Guess that's how the team intends to translate the game sans piracy. Speaking of which, doesn't gog have the rights to this game? (cough!) :D (Edit: And th...

Just read the engine was merged in! Can't be too much longer?

Ahem... if you need anyone to help write the translation, I'd love to put my writing chops to the test. :P Hopefully it would be at a time when I'm not too busy.

The engine is hardcoded to play the data back as 11khz wav. Later versions, like in Pajama Sam's Games to Play, use the Miles engine to play back higher quality files, and presumably you could put any data in those files. But I reckon you'd need the source codes to upgrade the engine version! (Like ...

Well, I got it working, simply by recopying the files. This demo does weird things! When the interactive portion is finished, it deletes half the game data files! What's going on? Oh well.

Ok, well, I was having trouble with the scummvm demo, which does have a mohawk portion, which I did download from sourceforge, I think is supposed to have a playable version of Lancelot blah blah, and I feel like there was another clarification I was gonna add here, but then forgot. :P Anyway, I thi...
