Re: Installing Escape from MI (pc floppy version)

Hi! Well I though I'd dig out my old copy of Monkey Island and wallow in some nostalgia. However, I'm having some problems even installing the game! I have the pc version (3 floppy discs) and I'm trying to install it onto my laptop (windows xp). In the absence of a floppy drive I've copied the file...

I opened it and tried it (twice), here's what happened: Last login: Sun De...

Re: wich are the best versions?

As for the images at the top of the home page I believe they are (from left to right) Simon the Sorcerer, Gobliiins, The doorman from Beneath a Steel Sky and I think the last one is Flight of the Amazon Queen. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong! Hope this helps, Rolo. I believe the image...

Yeah, I think mp3 compression does work, but I don't want any voices at all, seems little point wasting 100MB of SD card space for something that'll be turned off! Buy a bigger SD card ;) Seriously though, I haven't got a clue how to get around this problem. I guess the PalmOS port is checking the ...

Re: wich are the best versions?

I need to know wich is the best version for maniac mansion and zak mckracken cause the one's that I have have ugly graphics and I saw screenshots of other versions with better graphics. Thanks These 'better' graphics may have been due to the scaler being used in ScummVM, have you tried changing the...

Re: CD Talkie Conversion to floppy?

Hi, I've got talkie versions of DOTT and Sam n Max and I'd like to play them on my Zodiac, but haven't got enough storage space for the Monster.sou file. If I just omit this file from the folder on the PC version, it throws up an error message in the text window every time it tries to access it, bu...

I did search the forum, but the "g3" or "G3" query doesnt provide not one result!
Maybe, but searching for Mac OS X G3 does.

Nope. A bit more information might help others to help you though. I can tell you're running Windows but which version? Which version of ScummVM have you downloaded?

But anyway, I still can't get Sam and Max to work. I downloaded the tools package and I see the extract_scumm_mac file, but I can't open it either in the finder or from within ScummVM. How exactly do I use this file to extract the game? Maybe it's Windows executable which you downloaded. You should...

Re: Broken Sword 2 - Speech2.clu - Help Please ?

I have it set up with speech1.clu and speech2.clu in the main broken sword 2 folder, i assume the problem is with speech2.clu (and therefore the CD2) as it cropped up around half way.. which i assume would be the CD change point usually. This is probably a silly suggestion but have you tried copyin...

Please, please, please , stay out of the registry! While most users will not need to edit the ini, you DO NOT want most users anywhere near the registry.
