yes, it is possible although the discs/disks cant be read natively from within windows. you will need an app capable of reading disc in the Mac file format like HFVexplorer (you can get this app here , just scroll down a bit). Be sure to read the included readme as there is a part of installation th...

Okay ive zipped up and uploaded 3 different scans of the atarist Maniac Mansion and a slightly blurry atarist loom. Unfortunately there is some shelf wear on the cover of MM but it doesnt seem to be on the meat of the art itself so it should be okay. Im going to try to get a better loom scan as well...

from what i remember (i think) you need to try to take the grog first, then his foot pops out from the bottom of the bed when he turns over.

Might be wrong though...

Fortunately the archive would work on more than just a mac, the extract_scumm_mac app is just a framework for my idea. Nonetheless scummvm allows you to play the mac games on other systems so that point is a bit moot. The point is to attempt to address the possibility of Datafile compression and uni...

The other day i had an idea similar to this but without using the normal archive process, I think the main want in this issue is reduced file size and a unified file to ease copying to a memory card or such storage device. While allowing zips/rars/etc. to be supported natively would make it easier f...
