Topic: Shivers: bug report
Replies: 9
Views: 5530

Hello Thanks for the feedback. Shivers isn't officially supported, as a lot of the graphics code will need to be rewritten so that it works correctly, together with the rest of the newer SCI games (SCI2, SCI2.1 and SCI3). It will eventually be supported in the future, but there isn't any definite pl...

I don't like repeating myself but... It takes absolute ages to reverse a game. It needs time, resources, reversing skills, programming skills, loads of patience, debugging and testing. Adding a new game isn't a magical do-it-all button. This is not a movie. You can't sit down for 30 minutes (with ep...

Good job guys. I was afraid the old timers wouldn't respond with enough sarcasm and disgust at a newbs attempt to ask about a game they enjoyed and would like to play again. I'd hate to see the scummvm forums ever come across as welcoming or helpful. Keep up the good work! Wow. Loads of hate here.....

Hey, nice work!

Although this is a bit of an exotic feature, perhaps it could be added, if the changes to master are few and self-contained.

Feel free to create a pull request, and the team will check your changes out.

I could get this done really quickly if the " play_music " command was working for me, but when I enter it in the debug console, it simply says "Unknown command or variable". I've tried it in multiple games now, and none of them recognize the command. Any hints? This command will only work in ITE a...

Great work! :) I don't understand your reasoning for using ResidualVM for Blade Runner... you won't get any better quality in the in-game models with a hardware renderer. Westwood used voxel graphics with the Blade Runner models. Essentially, these are models projected into a 3D space. Imagine creat...

The game has 40 music tracks. As eriktorbjorn said, you can play each track with the play_music debugger command, however, the track will start playing immediately, not after exiting the debugger. Note that music tracks in IHNM start from 0, whereas external tracks start from 1. So, internally the g...

Which version of ScummVM are you using? Which platform? Windows, I suppose (since you mention D-Fend)?

nemesis.zix is created when using the installer. The files in the game CDs contain the file medium.zix instead (inside the znemscr directory).

Another probably silly question: is it possible to get a fullscreen view in Zvision games? At the moment, scummvm is using my entire screen, i.e. the save-restore bar drops down from the top, but the actual playfield is letterboxed in the centre of the screen with black bars on all four sides.

I have some ideas for modding other Scumm games too.

Very interesting read! There are a lot of dead ends in this game, which are documented here: http://maniacmansionfan.50webs.com/waystolose.html Perhaps the following can be patched the same way you patched the script that handles the paint remover: - "If you do catch Ed's package before him but if y...
