Re: Is there a way to disable pause-with-spacebar?

It's surprising if that's the case, because I couldn't find anyone else raising the issue here. Don't a lot of games in general use spacebar? E.g, for jumping? Odd. I don't think it's that common with the classic point and click adventure games. Not any that I can think of. Although, what I should ...

Re: Is there a way to disable pause-with-spacebar?

The game I'm using Scumm for, Riven, uses the spacebar to skip cutscenes (or at least I assume so because Myst does; I could be wrong). But Scumm overrides this into something like the opposite, a pause button. How can I change this? ADDENDUM: I'm using Windows 10, and I have give more specs if nee...

For my side-project, I've pretty much finished with the subtitles transcripts. Someone could try compiling ScummVM from my Pull Request (and get the SUBTITLES.MIX from there), if they'd like to see how that works in-game and provide feedback to improve the transcript or the subtitles mechanism, but ...

Serj94, I think the text file encoding that should work for you would be Windows-1251. You can send me your modified text file and your modified font bmp and I could check if I can spot where your issue lies. Alternatively, I could send you the respective sample files from my work on the Greek trans...

Well, I'll try to contact PRCA, but if you or someone else who will read this topic knows how to solve this problem with the translation of fonts - please write how to solve this problem (the text either does not appear or black squares are displayed instead of the text). My advice would be to try ...

Do you have idea as to the meaning of the @-signs that occur with some strings? For example, there are certain name-of-object strings that contain these @-signs and I tried experimenting what would happen if I edited that a little, but it seemed to make little difference with the version of ScummVM...

Hi, I'm not sure if you solved the issues you've had with getting the extra fonts and translated text to play with the game, but maybe I could help? It's been quite a few years since we completed an unofficial Greek translation of The Secret of Monkey Island (floppy version, VGA CD, and also the Spe...

Re: New scummvm installation cannot find saved games of GOG

Any ideas about what could be the issue? I think the file name of the savegames is often based on the game's "ID" (that you can see in the "Edit Game" dialog). If the game got a different ID when you added it in ScummVM 2.0 than it had in GOG's version, you may have to rename the save files. Yes, t...

The extractpak program will not open for me. I extract the files, but when I try to open the application it just closes immediately. I am running Windows 10. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks! The extractpak is only supposed to extract the contents of the pak resource file, correct? Then you ca...

New scummvm installation cannot find saved games of GOG game

Hi, I've recently installed LOOM (GOG, Talkie version) which runs with ScummVM support. But it uses an old ScummVM version, which has a glitch with mouse control in up-to-date Windows 10 PCs -- my laptop is affected by that. GOG uses a portable setup of ScummVM as far as I can tell, which it puts in...

So far, I've been testing "hacks" for the save games to trigger such scenes where I don't know how to get the conditions for them in-game or if that's even possible. And a couple of times I've used video editing to restore some scenes. You can try grab development version (or build one by yourself)...

^^^ You can start the game, but the scummvm engine for it is not yet complete. I believe you also need to have everything on the hard disk too. There's a method mentioned in the pcgamingwiki that will do that for you. Actually, the installer and the workarounds mentioned in the pcgamingwiki page for...

I wish I could be of help. I have been looking in the game files (and a few decompiled dlls) as part of a comprehensive subtitled playthrough of the game that I'm working on. One of the main tasks I'm doing is labeling/renaming each (extracted) speech audio file to indicate who says it, when they sa...

Many thanks Anotherguest! I can confirm it works on Symbian^3 Belle at least for LOOM EGA that I've tried. It worked on Symbian Anna too. My phone is a C6-01.
