Pretty much. The 5 1/4 inch floppies had died off pretty much completely even before CD-ROMs became common. I had a rare computer that had HD 5.25 and 3.5 inch floppy drives back then, and I say rare because it wasn't standard configuration even then. I don't even think I've seen anywhere in over 10...

Repetition helps some people to learn Jonatan. Though honestly I sometimes wonder given how often we go to war, just how slow the powers that be are to learn. :-(

Enhanced Redbook audio for MI1, and updated interface.
No changes noted for MI2.

Secret of Monkey Island was the only MI game with CD audio, all the others used iMUSE. What kind of soundcard did you have before? And what one now?

Technically you can't trademark an acronym. It's only been the last couple of years that's been overturned somewhat by corporations like Sun Microsystems. In fact here's a reasonably well written explanation of how Sun amongst others have got around it. Lucasarts were slow on the uptake and it's har...

I'd hesitate to call SCUMM VM an emulator as its nature is not emulation but rather replacement of the original engine to allow the software to work in new environments.

It's also good advertising for them in some cases because it shows they recognise they have fans of the titles still. And if they choose to rerelease the title they can feel safe in the fact that they'll not only have sales the games are still playable without a lot of redesign work

Ok reverse engineering is what occurs when you get something that you have no idea exactly how it works so you pull it apart slowly and analyze each part and look at how it interrelates with the other parts of the whole. In itself RE does nothing, you just analyze the product to determine how it wor...

"%TOOLS_PATH%\encode_dxa.exe" --vorbis "%~n1.smk"
should be
"%TOOLS_PATH%\encode_dxa.exe" --mp3 "%~n1.smk"
since you're using the lame encoder.

That's part of it. When it executes it pulls apart the smk files to png and wav

Ah whoops in convert_dxa_one you'll need to change vorbis to mp3 forgot that part.

Then the encode_dxa will be run an convert the png files to a dxa and a mp3 file.

Don't include the file in the path statement, just the directory.

Besides which you don't need to include the file name in the run line. Just put all the smk files for feeble in the one place and run the batch.

You still need RAD Game tools installed. As without it you can't do anything with the smk files. You'll also notice in the SCUMMVM Tools folder two batch files (convert_dxa.bat and convert_dxa_one.bat) they'll make life easier working with the feeble files as they're already setup for it. If you edi...

In simple terms they never got permission or the source code given to them. They had to reverse engineer SCUMM. Lucasarts have I believe at one point in the past sent a C&D to the team, but never followed up on it. I believe the AGI support was similarly reverse engineered as Sierra's ultimate owner...

case sensitivity isn't usually an issue under MS OSes, they're not designed to discriminate between a 'A' and a 'a' unlike *nix OSes. SCUMM VM as far as I'm aware isn't coded to be case sensitive either. So the problem might be in how you ripped the file, what method did you use to rip and encode th...
