What seems to be nonsense Polish text and probably spam? (NO WAY I'll click that link!) I don't like. Nie podoba mi się.

Time barely works on Scummvm. I'm actually playing it in VMware for an LP. I'll update this with screenshots in a bit. And yeah, it does sound wrong. It's so weird. And the strangest part... I don't remember it looking like that as a child. (But then again, you know that children will miss some craz...

Renee Santz' Sprite

Is Renee Santz' sprite (character from Mohawk version of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego) supposed to be missing one eye? Because it looks really freaking weird. :shock:

Mostly the software not coping with the mode changes. Like if I set my monitor to 256 colours, Hypercam can record the 256 colour bits fine, but then the 16 bit colour bits show up blank. Same goes vice versa.

What exactly is cdtoons anyway? I thought the intro was Quicktime video.

Huh. I always thought XP's WoW was the same as NT's. Back on topic, can the 256 colour sections of Carmen Time be made to run in 16 bit graphics mode? Or should I pursue another way of running the game?

Hmm... I always found the 16 bit versions of Mohawk games to work better back in the XP days, but maybe I was an idiot. I know for a fact that Just Grandma and Me v2 was 10000000x less crashy on the 16 bit EXE. Trying to play the 32 bit version without Windows 9x was nigh impossible!

Windows/dosbox itself supports it, but the 16bit version of the game does not; it will only run in 256 colour mode. That is, there are two EXE files. TIME16, which is intended for Windows 3.1 and NT and TIME32 which is for Windows 95.

I think we're all lost. :P

Yeah, the 16bit (length) version only runs in 256 colours, and since the 32bit exe only runs on Windows 95 or later, (and requires directx) no quicktime 16bit (colour) fun for me, at least in dosbox. Or did you mean something else?

Force Mohawk engine (orig EXE) games to play in 16bit color?

When playing Mohawk engine games with the original EXE files (note: Scummvm doesn't yet support all Mohawk games ] the game will FORCE you to play in 256 colour mode. Is there a way to force the game to play in 16 bit colour, such as like the Humongous games? Mohawk games can be a big pain in the bu...

Working on documenting, hacking HE SCUMM data.

Hello, I am working on documenting and hacking the HE SCUMM format, well specifically that of the classics such as Putt-Putt Joins the Parade. Right now I'm just working on the DOS demo of Parade , which come to think of it is probably pretty stupid on my part, as some formats are different in the d...

That's because it's extremely rare, I think. It's possible it's only on the Infogrammes US release of Freddi Fish 3, or at least I think that's what it's from.
