The Hand of Fate is moving...

Post by LordHoto » Tue Apr 01, 2008 3:59 pm

...and the finger points to you! Or to be precise to Zanthia,
youngest of the Kyrandian Mystics. But since she is the one
you play in ScummVM's newest supported adventure
The Legend of Kyrandia: Book Two: Hand of Fate that is
not a big difference. So grab your copy of The Legend of
Kyrandia: Book Two: Hand of Fate
and a daily build
of ScummVM to help her save Kyrandia.

Since we are not finished with supporting every feature,
there are still some missing:

Currently we support only the DOS CD-ROM version.

Another thing missing is support for the in-game GUI, so
saving is possible only via hotkeys. Check out the hotkey
section of our README on how to do it.

And last but not least we do not support MIDI output,
so make sure you use AdLib as "Music Driver".

Of course all bugs should be reported to our bug tracker.
Make sure you got all required datafiles before you report
a bug though. For further information, check out the
bug submission guidelines.

This ain't an April Fool's joke by any chance, is it? *paranoid*

I know, it's just that you guys have had the scariest and most believable April's Fool jokes in the preceding years, so I wanted to be on the safe side :)

I just wanted to say that most of the ingame GUI should be working now. What isn't working currently is the delete savegame menu and the audio menu. Also when you change language via the Kyrandia menu it isn't changed permanently. So if you want to try that out you have to wait for the Subversion build to get updated.

Update: The GUI should now be complete, the only thing missing is the delete savegame menu.

Ok the delete savegame menu should be implemented now too. Also savefiles should be ordered newest -> oldest from now on.

This is awesome news! First I also thought this might be an april's fools joke... otoh, there had been some progress in recent svn builds. I just didn't think it would reach completion this quickly. Well then, on to the bug hunting.
