Rex Nebular and the Cosmic Gender Bender DEMO: unsupported?

Post by carlo_bramini » Sat Sep 26, 2015 7:46 pm

Hello dear friends,
after looking the news about "Rex Nebular and the Cosmic Gender Bender" now supported by SCUMMVM, I downloaded the demo of the game for trying it but unfortunately it is not recognized.
The demo works fine in DosBox.
Do you confirm that only the full game is supported?
Thank you very much.

That's correct. I wasn't even aware of a demo, so there's been no support added for it. Given that the game logic for MADS games are implemented using hardcoded logic in the executable, I'm not sure how easy it would be to support it without a lot of manual reverse engineering to find out what subset the demo used.

Hopefully, the demo is still available on some sites, I got my demo vesion from here:

I hope its support could be available in the future.

We have that demo, along with several other demos.

There are several demos for the MADS game engine on the web site.
