i do have 2gb of ram, thanks for the thought. i don't think i did anything particularly clever to get it working. my crossover games bottle is a win2000 one, don't know how much difference that makes. another edit: i just tried installing it in an xp bottle to see if that would help performance at a...

just in case anyone's interested - i downloaded the demo and tried to get it running using crossover games (used to run windows games) on my macbook. i ended up having to install some extra directx files, but it did work after that. unfortunately, even at the lowest resolution/graphic detail setting...

yeah, to be fair, re-releasing your old software is no fun unless you deliberately inconvenience your honest customers in the process.

many/most(?) laptops have a "num lock" function, usually activated by one of the f-keys, sometimes while holding the "fn" key or similar. this makes a section of the laptop's keys act as if they were the numeric keypad. i just played through fate of atlantis on my macbook using this feature for the ...

ok, here's my mac build, fresh from the svn branch this morning. i'm afraid it's intel-only, i'm not clever/motivated enough to make a universal build. it's also possible it might only work on leopard, sorry. also this will only play scumm games, i left out the other engines. i haven't actually test...

it's great you're doing this, glad it's going well :D
i'd be tempted to give it a test, but i'm on a mac. i see you have a branch on the svn - i've never used branches before, do i just download the branch and that will be everything i need, or do i need to do something to combine it with the trunk?

i was very disappointed to read that i won't be able to play the se with voices & original graphics. i'm hoping someone will come up with a way to do so, whether it be by scummvm support (i'd understand if you guys didn't want to do that), an unofficial scummvm patch, or a hack for the official exec...
