A new month, a new engine!

Post by Strangerke » Sat Apr 16, 2011 5:40 pm

Continuing our incredible pace of one announcement per month, we're proud to be able to ask you to grab your copies of Hugo's trilogy (DOS or Windows version) and try them out in ScummVM using the latest daily build.

The games supported (Hugo's House of Horror, Hugo2: Whodunit? and Hugo 3: Jungle of Doom) are still available for sale on the author's site. So buy them if you don't own them, copy the required data files and give them a try!

Don't hesitate to report any bugs you find in the bugtracker, following our bug submission guidelines. Screenshots are welcome too, as usual!

And again a big thank you to the team for expanding ScummVM with a new engine and another three games.

Cheers,
René

Obviously... I forgot to enable the engine by default. This is now fixed, sorry!

I got this from David Gray's site a couple of months ago. Being a Linux user, and aware that the engine had been added to ScummVM, I filed it away without even trying it under Wine. I only had a look at the 30 page hint book pdf that comes with the download.
Hopefully I can find some time soon to play the games now this announcement has been made. I know I've played one of them before years ago. I can't recall which one.
Congratulations to the team on another engine / game(s)

You're compiling with configure, no? Just do "./configure --enable-all-engines"
