Differences between Full Throttle Version A and B ?

Post by Simplex »

Hello,

I noticed there are two versions of Full Throttle in SCUMMVM: Version A/English and Version B/English. Is there any difference between them, or is "B" the same version, only compressed?

It's two different releases of the game. I don't know if there are any differences noticeable to the player.

No, that is just an executable replacement.

The difference between these versions is that one has a script variable added (and all other shifted, since they're numbered sequentally). What is the real purpose for that we don't know as nobody cared to analyse it.

I actually think that is from the actual readme on the version B disk Eugene:)

No, I have Version B, which is for DOS. That's the Windows executable for when they repackaged it for Windows.

Come on! I started my ScummVM hacking with working on FT. The time difference between these versions is 12 days with version 'A' being newer. :wink:

My version is B, and it's the original release that was released here in Sweden back in 1995.

I would guess that version A was a very short-lived version? The initial US release perhaps?

I'm fairly sure that's the more common one.

Again, version 'A' is newer version, that is, they're named in a wrong order in ScummVM. First was released what we call 'version b' and then 'version a'. As I saw, both versions are quite widespread.

Ah, ok :) Sorry, seems like I missed your previous post!
