Wow, first Google takes the beta tag off Gmail, and now ScummVM is gearing up for v1.0? What a crazy week.

Is the "Windows version" bit about the Windows version of the game or about the Windows version of ScummVM?

We need to know the game target platform and your running platform.

I was running both "Freddi Fish 1: The Case of the Missing Kelp Seeds" and "Putt-Putt Saves the Zoo" on the windows version of ScummVM 1.0.0svn42377 (Using Windows XP SP3). The games themselves were also the windows versions.

I used Windows XP with Service Pack 3.

Why isn't Spy Fox 3 in the list for testing? I played it to the end with an earlier SVN, and with only 2 little graphic bugs, but i think it should be considered compatible.

I have now sucessfully completed "Putt-Putt Enters the Race" on the Windows version of ScummVM 1.0.0svn42377. (Using Windows XP SP3) The game was the English (US), Windows version.

The one glitch I did come across is that if you play the pinball mini-game the ball always gets stuck no matter what you do. This is not game-breaking as it is just an optional mini-game. Also despite the glitch, you can still stop playing pinball while the ball is stuck and carry on with the game as normal.

Apparently, it's one of the games that uses 16-bit colour, which explains some (most?) of the graphics bugs. ScummVM only supports 8-bit graphics, and while that should change in the not so distant future, it's probably the reason the game isn't considered supported yet.

(I haven't played through the game myself yet, so I don't know how bad the graphics bugs are. A few during the intro are pretty noticeable, but most aren't.)

REALLY? to be quite honest, the game looks perfectly fine to me. I mean, it looks great, not something that has any downgraded or dithered graphics or something. The graphic bugs I referred to are location based only. There is one when you use the pearl detector, there's some overlay issue, and another one is when you're in a dark place and use some gadget to light it up, the room remains dark, but it's fixed if you leave the room and come back. That's all.

Also i've read in the compatibility chart that you have to guess the color of the fingernails, which is not true at all. I think someone fixed the issues with the game, and just forgot to mention it :D

For the most part, the intro bugs aren't very noticeable. I think Spyfox's clothes change colour slightly a few times between scenes, and the rabbits's clothes change colour in mid-scene. The first really noticeable one is the homage to 2001, where a banana morphs into the gigantic spray can.

The screenshots are a bit too large for my taste to put here as inline images, so here are some links instead:

First image, SVN trunk
Second image, SVN trunk
First image, gsoc2009-16bit branch
Second image, gsoc2009-16bit branch

But, as I said, I've never played through the game, so I don't know how good/bad it looks after that.

I have now sucessfully completed "Freddi Fish and Luther's Maze Madness" on the Windows version of ScummVM 1.0.0svn42377. (Using Windows XP SP3) The game was the English (US), Windows version.

The one glitch I did come across is that whenever you press a button on the keyboard the game acts as if you are holding it down until you press another key. (For instance, if you shoot a bubble you keep on shooting bubbles until you press a button to turn the corner. (or any button on the keyboard, whether it is used in the game or not)

This has been fixed just today, so, please, try tomorrow's build (r42382 or later).

Could you, please, submit a bugreport for this?

I just tested it with r42406, and as you said it has now been fixed.

I have also now reported the error in Maze Madness.
