I'm guessing the manual has not been updated.

Simply download the tools and select the game you want to compress.
It has a gui and the process is automated.

Like it says, it shouldn't make any difference, as the files with the same name on cd1 and cd2 should be exactly the same, except in the case of Phantasmagoria. There is no preference, simply merge the folders.

Just because gog mounts images doesn't mean that they don't prefer to shrink the games and not have the user do 'ctrl+f4' which believe it or not, is a major obstacle to a casual gamer that never heard of dosbox or read readmes. If it was policy to just dump isos they wouldn't have merged all the o...

I think you are wrong. gog has used dosbox with mounted cd images for along time, for several games. Both Rama and Lighthouse play perfectly fine in dosbox.

Yes, this seems totally redundant.

What would be the point of uniting the files into a new file?
Also, it would not be the original game data anymore. I vote no.

I am guessing the people who named it are no longer around. Perhaps ask Ender or Fingolfin?

I think the name is pretty clear.

I am opposed to changing something inoffensive because someone finds it offensive. People are offended over the most ridiculous things these days.
The sub-heading of the Junkyard is quite descriptive.

Great. Still missing a dev.

PS. I want to note that I am in no way a member of the ScummVM team, anything I say should not be taken as a representation of the teams view.

Just my 2 cents from watching this from the sidelines.

I think the only need atm is for a dev, actually willing to do the work. Not apologies or demands for special features for AGS.

Is anyone from the AGS team willing to do the work or at least contribute?

It seems you are expecting a lot for free.

If there is any difference, which I highly doubt, you should be able to compare file sizes, md5's and dates.

Your best bet is ebay.

The original version had *.gra files. The later versions had *.scn files.

So, it is easy to tell the difference.

The gog version of IHNM stores all the data in a cd image file called 'NoMouth.dat'. You need to rename the file extension to *.ISO and extract the game data from the cd image. It uses an ISO 9660 file system. Same goes for GK2. A list of the required game data files can be seen here: http://wiki.s...
