Australian ScummVMers: 100% Legal Scumm games for cheap!

Greetings all. I was wandering through my local JB Hi-Fi today when I noticed they had the re-release DVD-style box versions of 'Sam & Max Hit The Road' and 'The Curse of Monkey Island' for the low price of $8.99. So if you're after either of those games (or any of the others in that range, although...

I loooove DOSBox. I've been playing 'Bio Menace' and 'X-Com: UFO Defense' with it lately. And you can even run 'Quake' on it - I tested it myself (although why you'd want to is beyond me, Doom is a lot better, hahaha).

A Doom port within ScummVM would be hilarious, if a tad out of character. Imagine though...ScummVM begins as an adventure game interpreter replacement...but eventually ends up absorbing every other emulator / source port / reverse engineering job out there, and becomes it's own operating system or s...

So just don't mention where you get your games from and you'll be fine :wink: This raises a question, though...say you bought a game years ago and lost it in an accident (for argument's sake, your house burned down), and you're unable to find another copy. Are you allowed to acquire one 'pirated' co...

Because nobody would ever dare to use ScummVM for nefarious purposes.

I play 'Rose Tattoo' with VDMSound, and it works perfectly.

Hey, yeah, those Sherlock Holmes games are awesome. 'Serrated Scalpel' was, like, the second point-and-click I ever got.

Well, I'd say in this case you've got a legit reason to make a copy. As long as you don't make any more copies, and don't give that copy to anyone else, you should be within legal boundaries. Back in the day, it actually used to be recommended that you make copies of your game discs to play (floppie...

The NES version was the first one I played, but my favourite has to be the PC Enhanced version. The NES one would take the top spot if only Nintendo hadn't seen fit to censor it. The music was awesome though.

I just checked it and you're totally right - anyone can fix the wires (guess its been too long since I played through MM, huh?)

Even so I'm going to keep digging at this until my brain melts.

But with Bernard beinfg the only one who can fix those wires, wouldn't it have made more sense to mention him in the hint. I think there might be something we're not seeing here. Of course there's also the possibility that the hint poster, like most game manuals and suppliments, was printed long bef...

I've been trying to work out this 'shock jeff' thing for years. It's mentioned in the hint poster originally shipped with the game that Jeff momentarily became psychic and gave out winning lottery numbers when he recieved an electric shock, but I can't seem to find any way to get it to work either. ...

That's fair enough then. But on the note of having nothing to gain...and I realise I'm being somewhat outspoken here...the way I see it you have nothing to lose (except time, of course, which I'm sure is a valuable commodity). Wouldn't an emulator capable of running ALL the major great adventure lab...

Infocom / Z-Machine interpreter?

Will ScummVM, at any stage, ever support the largish Infocom library of text adventure games, and thus vicariously the massive selection of fan-made interactive fiction that uses the same format? You could combine it with WinFrotz or something, I haven't seen that developed on in years. Now that you...

If you'll continue, that will lead you to conclusion, that if you have PC version of Zak, you're allowed to warez ultra-rare and hyper-expensive FM-TOWNS version (last purchase I'm aware of was for $360) and all localized versions. That's wrong. That's why Joachim Eberhard spent his $300 on Indy4 F...
