Yes, haven't you realized yet that Disney doesn't care about fans? Not exactly. I know at least one case when they did care. There is the older German dubbing for Arielle. A track they always said, they didn't want to use anymore, but fans asked a lot for it. And it ended up on the Blu-Ray as a bon...

Re: MI2 - Ultimate Talkie Edition v0.2 | Language selection

ScummVM currently has support for this unofficial version built in, but unlike for the talkie version of MI1, language selection is not permitted - i.e. ScummVM forces the game to start in english (game text and subtitles). This is probably because there is no translated version of the MI2 talkie, ...

In that case, my 5 1/4 disks are erased, so I have to copy the contents from the 3 1/2 which I have, but I don't know exactly what files I need to put in each disk. There is an index of rooms in the resources, which is made for a distinct version of the game. Whenever a room is not on the current d...

Not sure that it will work though. Back in the days, the devs played a lot of tricks on the files AND on the disks to get them to fit. I don't think LucasArts is one of them. They usually even encouraged playing from backup copies in their manuals. I remember trying to do the same with broken PC di...

Most important reason for me to use aspect ratio correction is the way persons look. And almost every one of them look unhealthy fat without it.

As you noticed with the Loom screenshots already, many other proportions look right in a 4:3 aspect ratio, despite of the distorted cycles. Seems odd indeed. I noticed that back in the 90's already. I suspect, the drawing routines they used were missing aspect ratio correction, a feature many graphi...

regardless of the intention of the LucasArts designers. The intention obviously was a 320x200 mode in a 4:3 aspect ratio. The original IBM-PC had NTSC output and RGB output with the same timing. The 200 lines were chosen, as they can be displayed on NTSC within the overscan safe area. Also valid fo...

Heres what it looks like on A500 with 1084s At 50 Hz that is. Apparently, LucasArts didn't made any attempt to fix that mode's aspect ratio. If your chipset allows it (ECS), try running it on 60 Hz instead. With WHDload, you can just add "NTSC" to the parameter list, iIrc. If you're playing from fl...

Using a 4:3 resolution like 800x600 should do. Most modern software assume square pixels.

You could use a different timing like 85 Hz. Then, the monitor should distinguish that from regular DOS resolutions and remember the adjustments separately.

I don't know what my graphics card and/or monitor do exactly, but I can't see any sign of stretching. No doubled pixels, no in-between with merged colours, etc. That means that no resampling takes place, which is certainly a good thing. Then the 720 is just a wild guess by the monitor and can be ig...

It really is 320 pixels. Don't trust the 720, the monitor simply doesn't know any better. This mismatch may cause aliasing, but probably isn't noticeable due to the really low resolution, hence can be ignored. You may try to define a 960x600 resolution and use the 3x scaler. It is not exactly DOS ti...

VGA doubled the lines in 200 and 240 row resolutions. To replicate this, you would set the resolution to 640x400 and use the 2x scaler on lowres games and disable aspect ratio correction. 70 Hz is VGA standard for 400 (and 200 logical) lines, but many graphic cards could be set to higher frequencies...

Just because gog mounts images doesn't mean that they don't prefer to shrink the games They're not very consistent with that. Some game are reduced to the files required to run it indeed (which might included a reduced cd images as well). But there are also many games with the original cd image int...
