We tried to include support, but Space Quest 4 required us to remove Larry 4 support, otherwise it wouldn't have been possible to finish Space Quest 4. We are very sorry.Kaminari wrote:I have it on very good authority that, unfortunately, Larry 4 will never be supported by ScummVM because Al Lowe doesn't believe in "4-play".

As mentioned, there is work being done on the SCI engine (which was used in the Larry games). Love for Sail is using the last version of the engine, SCI3, which used a different scripting system, and thus might take more time to implement than the others.Joop wrote:So what about Love for Sail?
I would like to replay this game on my couch with my Wii system.
I really love it, any ideas when I'll be able to play it with ScummVM?
Nah, running Larry 7 on Dosbox on my Wii just won't work. No biggie though. I recently replayed it on pc.MeddlingMonk wrote:There's always DOSBox.

You can get a decent installer for pc here!
Here you have the answer. I made it based on what said Al Lowe on his website, and it worked. Also you can try the XP instaler, and play it nomrmaly. I have Windows 7 Ultimate and with the XP instaler I play with the windows version instead of the DOS version.MeddlingMonk wrote:There's always DOSBox.

Agreed. KQ6 is the main reason that I am awaiting the SCI support in ScummVM. There are only about three Windows only SCI games and ScummVM will be a great solution for those, too. For the vast majority of the SCI games, DOSBox handles them perfectly. True, ScummVM will be good for the devices that can't handle DOSBox, but anything that can, there is no reason to not be using DOSBox now. And as far as Larry 7,MusicallyInspired wrote:DOS version is better. Always. The only exception would be possibly KQ6 and that's only because it has high res portrraits and a superior intro sequence. KQ5Win also has an alternate soundtrack.

And unlike the Windows installer, it will eliminate the need for the CD after it is installed. It can also be used to help set it up on non Windows platforms by installing it first on a Windows machine or WINE and copying over the folder. Only the mounting commands in the dosbox.conf file need to be edited for the platform.
