Technical problems with Pajama Sam again

Sorry to just drop by asking, but perhaps somebody has any idea why this problem appears and how to solve it... On my old computer I got the same puzzle combinations in all Pajama Sam games when playing through Scumm VM + D-Fend Reloaded. I didn't have that problem in any other Humongous Entertainme...

Can screenshots be saved as something other than bitmaps?

I have just a little question. I don't like bitmaps. 1. They are huge. Usually saving the same screenshot as PNG compresses the file... some 60-70% in case of newer games with more sophisticated graphics ("The Dig", for example) and more than 90%, if I remember well, in case of older games, especial...

Btw - a question to those who know the game well: any advice on getting a lot of bonus levels? Sometimes the UFO that triggers bonus levels doesn't appear at all, sometimes - now this is nasty - right when Pep is popping the last balloon and can no longer go back up and hit the UFO... Is there any r...

OK, but what should I do about it?
EDIT: OK, I managed to solve the problem by deleting the extra (non-screenshot) files in the game's "Capture" folder - players.bal etc.

Oh, and by the way: the message I get goes like this: Console is ready Debugger started, type 'exit' to return to the game. [actually it causes the game to crash] Type 'help' to see a little list of commands and variables. ERROR: (6:220:0xFD78): INIFile::loadFromStream: Key/value pair found outside ...

Profile ---> Add manually --> Add Scumm VM profile
Actually all profiles added this way don't work completely OK - when I just click them, the program says it can't find them and I have to "show them to the program" by clicking the location. But then it works.

Putt Putt and Pep's Balloon-O-Rama - first-time bug

I have completed the game before. I run it via Scumm VM + D-Fend Reloaded and I prefer it this way. A few weeks ago I downloaded the new version of Scumm VM and this is the first time I tried to replay the game since the download. And I can't play it. I et to the menu and whatever I press, some bug ...

I don't, ugh, have a CD. I, ugh, made some changes and now I'm away to another bug. Now I no longer know which file should I use to run the game, what should I do about resource.cfg, but I can't run the game - a completely different bug appears. Perhaps you know the solution? I read that the paths i...

Space Quest 6 - game crashes

I realise Space Quest 6 is not supported by Scumm VM anyway, but perhaps someone will be able to help me... I'm having a lot of bugs and such problems with Space Quest 6 and I would really love to complete this game. Technical specifications: I use a relatively old laptop with Windows 7. I play all ...

Just letting you know that for me games were very important in learning - at least in case of English. Nothing to do with Scumm VM - at that point I just used plain DOS, no emulators required and Scumm VM didn't even exist at that point. Timeline with some funny stuff (the numbers are my age): 5 (ye...

Game and screenshot technical problems

I guess it's not the most polite thing to just drop by asking "please help!", but really - I tried looking for the answer and I couldn't. Problem no. 1: screenshots in Scumm VM without D-Fend Reloaded. I usually play all games with Scumm VM used through D-Fend Reloaded, with the exception of "Pajama...

Scumm VM setup for "Soltys"

Perhaps someone knows the old Polish game "Soltys" which is now supposed to be playable with Scumm VM. (It doesn't run well with DOSBox, unfortunately.) However, I don't know how to setup it for playing in D-Fend Reloaded + Scumm VM. When creating the game's profile, there is a list to select which ...

I'm just trying out this very game. The VGA version - I'd like to try both and I really enjoy good EGA graphics, I seriously think they look much better than for example 3D graphics. And the problem is I can't even undeestand how to use the copy protection. I have the game's manual on my screen, but...
