question about transferring data files from mac -> pc

Post by benjamin »

I am interested in knowing if I could get all the datafiles of a SCUMM game on a mac version of the game, then use those same files with SCUMMvm on a PC - effectively porting the game. Thanks!

Depends on the game - for instance, only the PC versions of the Broken Sword games are supported - but in most cases, it should work. This page might help.

Searching the forums will probably turn up a few older threads, as well.

Thanks guys. The ones I was mainly interested in were the old LA games, in particular Sam and Max. :)
