VGA, the copy is from the "Police Quest Collection" box.

From the games announced, only KQ6 has hires support. And yes, hires (i.e. Windows) versions are supported too when available (just select the Windows version in the launcher)
Also the japanese versions of QfG1, PQ2 and SQ4 are supported. Although kanji input is not supported :D

Game: The Castle of Dr. Brain
Game Version: VGA/ENGLISH, v. 1.000
ScummVM Version: 1.2.0svn51462
Operating System: Win 7 Proffesional x64

I have completed the game on Expert level. Didn't experience this problem:

However I came across situation, that causes Scummvm to crash - I filed bug report: 3039656
Also there are problems with restoring a savegame - some sprites don't appear on screen (for example when you restore game in a jigsaw room, the jigsaw box is not displayed), but I believe someone reported this before in respect to some other SCI game.

Game: The Castle of Dr. Brain
Game Version: DOS/ENGLISH 1.000
ScummVM Version: ScummVM 1.2.0svn51745 (Aug 5 2010 10:19:46)
Operating System: Win 7 Ultimate x64

I played it thru on Novice, Standard and Expert. Didnt come across any crashes, just some timing issues, like the memory game at the beginning and time glasses in the Time room. No crashes in the robot room what so ever.

Edit: Retested with another SVN build, same result.

It seems when I try to add SQ1 Remake EGA it names it the VGA Remake. This is obviously incorrect.

I don't know if this means anything to you guys, but my King's Quest II SCI0 remake does not work in ScummVM. It won't even launch. It says it cannot find any data files. It detects the game as KQ2-1 and names it (EGA/DOS/English). I don't really know what to do about it. It used to work a long time ago. I don't want to publicly release the current build right now but I can give a private link.

However, the game isn't even close to finished yet anyway. Obviously unfinished games aren't covered in the scope of SCI pre-testing at this point. But I wonder if there's any particular reason why it won't even launch.

It's on there somewhere. Go back a few pages of this topic to find how to find the revision on that site. Without the revision number, I won't add it to the page.

I'll replay them with 1.2.0svn51745 (Aug 5 2010 10:19:46).
I've tried to look for a revision number, but the build from helllabs.org doesnt include one, really :/
It just says ScummVM 1.2.0svn (Aug 4 2010 08:11:51) when I do scummvm.exe -v

I did say you could look it up...

Sorry for the trouble if this was unusable. So, should I build directly from SVN then?
The buildlog says it was r51407. Just make sure you report that revision in the future. I'll add the test.
