Topic: Gobliins 2 Amiga Version with Sound?
Replies: 15
Views: 10376

Goblins was a French game, which means 50 Hz sync. But since it was published in the States by Sierra, chances are the sync was enforced in 60 Hz there (with the music sounding too fast). Some games would rely on the CIA timer to properly sync music whatever the display format, but most games just s...

Re: Space Quest IV

I remember seeing somewhere that SCUMMVM can support certain old Sierra games. Since The Dok doesn't read the doc (couldn't resist), I'll make it easy for him. ScummVM supports the old Sierra games built on the AGI engine. Space Quest 4 is a "new" Sierra game using the enhanced SCI engine, which is...

I didn't try the demo in ScummVM nor in DOSBox, but this doesn't happen in the original game (French version at least).

Éric Chahi. He worked on the graphics of Future Wars, but it's doubtful he's the current copyright holder of this game.

As far as I know, KQ4 AGI was not even released on the shelves. It was only offered via mailing list to the first lucky buyers of the SCI version.

Under Windows, the crashes systematically occur when the game tries to access a data track when a CD track is already playing. As I told many times, I'm convinced the problem doesn't come from Windows itself. There are many non-SDL emulators out there which perfectly support games with data and audi...

If I'm not mistaken, The Underdogs is an Indonesian archive and most abandonware sites are actually from Europe.

Can't agree less. The Miggy version of MI2 is a sloppy job and the music sucks big time (especially compared to the MT-32). Worse even, it doesn't use iMuse.

Moby Games is a good start to find that kind of information (look for the Technical Specs). A rule of thumb is that most MIDI soundtracks prior to 1993 were composed for the MT-32. General MIDI synths only entered the market in late 1991 and were not popular before 1993. As for AdLib (which appeare...
