What I meant with Full-LED is called Full Array LED Backlighting or RGB Dynamic LED Backlighting here . You can see a lineup of monitors that work this way here . (Its a Dutch site but you'll probably get the idea even without translation). Oh well, as long as the letterboxing doesn't damage the scr...

The Director (that I am talking about) had it's first release in 1985. Exporting your project to a blob that is loadable by the Shockwave plug-in is not your only option. You can export to stand-alone executable aswell for example. If you do that and do not use the trial version of Director then the...

Buy a Full-LED monitor (so not Edge-Lid and not CCFL). They are a bit more expensive but have none of the viewing angle, runny colors and uneven contrast issues of older flat-screens. Some people still insist that good CRT's are still better but others say those people are just kidding themselves an...

Director isn't related to flash at all, so Gnash is useless here. I guess, If you say so. I never touched Flash but I did make some Shockwave stuff in 2001 (or so) with Director. It offered you all the tools you needed to make Flash-like interactive stuff but had some extra features like networking...

Also, the requirement to install Dosbox and then a version of Windows on top of that is a killer and prompts me more to write an engine for this. The platform independently of Doxbox is really nice. Anyway, I hope you can get some useful info from the Gnash project. Their experience reversing Macro...

Hi. To run Win3.x stuff the best solution is usually to install DosBox and install Win3.1 inside of that. Doing terrible hacks in WinXP should be your last resort ;) Whether something gets supported in ScummVM mostly depends on someone being 'crazy' enough to devote enough to it. Inquiries about fut...

Have you tried the ScummVM Daily Snapshot from the downloads page?

I'm not current on the Windows version, but I think it already includes the new OpenGL scaler that allows you to drag the game window to any size.

The "black box" that Graxer is talking about is the command prompt window.
You can make it stay even after the game crashes if you follow this guide

Are you sure nothing odd appears in there?

I never liked it when a game allows you to save when you are in an unwinnable situation. It's just bad design IMHO, just as much as a grfx editor that would allow you to save corrupted images.

Anyway, its nice to see that TTG is thriving.

Someone submitted this to the bug tracker already.

Code: Select all

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3077086&group_id=37116&atid=418820
The status is Closed/Won't fix. No idea why, but the devs are at least aware of this.

Normally you need to merge the directory structures of both CD's to a single directory structure on your hard disk. Now since everything is on one disk already it means it is already merged.....but probably in a way that ScummVM does not understand. So you need to take a look here and figure out wha...

Are you actually having a problem?

If you do, then you probably should explain better what it is.
If not, then there is nothing to worry about.

Basically all the modern video card hardware/drivers figure out what to do on their own given any monitor frequency and application redraw rate.

Someone hacked Soureforge recently so they took some services down temporarily to investigate.
