Yeah, that's why I wondered. They already released another of their adventures, Teenagent, free on the site. But that game had the luck of being translated in English.

Sorry for repeating the question, but, is this project still alive? Is the person responsible for it possible to make contact with? It would be a real shame if we received the source code, only for the only person who has it to completely vanish.

I'm more than willing to translate the game if there's still any hopes for it.

According to this blog, the game is completable, but I don't know how far the english translation is.

Okay, that's definitely great news. However, I can't figure out how to make the game run in ScummVM. From what I understand, I'd need the scummvm-engine-prince.apk file, but I don't know where this file is.

Judging by the APK filename, I'm pretty sure that's the Android version of ScummVM. All you need to play it is the game's datafiles.

If you want to play it in English though, you'll need prince_translation.dat - which I don't think is yet publicly available

Will the save game work?

Is there any hope to save game in Prince and Coward? Found my old CD but there is no fun if you have to complete the game in one session.

In case anybody else is wondering, the game does support loading/saving via the the GMM (CTRL-F5) just fine.

I recently purchased a copy of this game... Was wondering if there was any update on scummvm support and the English translation (or if it'd be possible to get a copy of that prince_translation.dat?).

If you grab a daily build the engine should be enabled (note that since it is not supported yet things might still break). Note that there is currently no translation, though.

Thanks, it does seem to work with the daily (I'd had it running in a vm before, but this is easier). Is the translation mentioned in the wiki (~2014) still being worked on?

Yes, I have things like 95% ready for the release. Hope, I will find some time in the upcoming weeks.
