Windows and Pegasus Prime

Post by gammer4life »

Just a question. Apparently the PC version that they were remaking got scrapped haven't heard anything since like june. Will this allow me to make the Mac version work on Windows 7? If so how?

"Scrapped." What nonsense.

clone2727: I think I can see why gammer4life might wonder about this though as the trailer did say "release early 2013" and we are now in Autumn.. and the last update to the blog was in April:
http://thejourneymanproject.blogspot.co.uk/
and it is still not for sale on the website:
http://thejourneymanproject.com/

but *shrug* these things tend to run a bit late. Any ideas when the current likely release date is? Spring 2014?

gammer4life: As probably is obvious from above, clone2727 is working on the Pegasus engine and is in contact with the original authors so he should know:
http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Pegasus
http://forums.scummvm.org/viewtopic.php?t=11186

So that rumour is not correct... but they are running a bit later than the initial date announced.. *shrug* It is a software release! :)

However, you were asking whether you could run the original Mac release of PP on Windows 7 using ScummVM.
The answer is yes, but you will need to use a daily build from here:
http://www.scummvm.org/downloads/#daily

and you will need to dump the Mac datafiles from your original CDs and this is a bit tricky. We have a FAQ for this here:

Also, please note that this is still slightly buggy and has a few missing pieces, but it should be playable and completable. See TODO and Bugs list here:
http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Pegasus#TODO

If you find any bug not on that list, please feel free to report it informally on our IRC channel #scummmvm on freenode. Thanks.

Or 1.6.0.

Ah yes, mea culpa. Forgot that the Pegasus engine was enabled in the v1.6.0 release.

You can't seriously be asking about it again, can you? :wink:

@clone2727: Now play nice! :)

@gammer4life: Please stop asking. It will be released when it is ready. I suggest you keep an eye on http://thejourneymanproject.com/presto/journeymanprime/
which admittedly says it will be released Feb 2014, so they have a week left before it is late! :)

I apologize I am just really wanting it. I love this series and always wanted this game. Especially since I can't get turbo to work.

It's finally here! Got my copy over at GOG. (Sorry for the cross post. I didn't see this thread until now) Thanks Clone2727.
Is this version importable into scummvm?
