Ipod version of Alone in the dark 1?

Post by AndreasvanHaren » Thu May 22, 2008 12:02 am

I played the classic game Alone in the Dark 1 many times on my pc. Now however, I cannot get it to work anymore with the modern windows, no matter how many bootdisks I try. Will there be a version for the ipod with the help of Scummvm? Maybe this could be a request or so?

I already gave you an answer here:

Which I will paste here again for your convenience:

So no

Please read the FAQ before asking questions like this :(

In this particular case, the Free in the Dark project would probably be a good place to start. Or, since I agree that it doesn't seem like the kind of game ScummVM would support, a good place to continue.

Before you get your hopes up too high though, that project has been inactive for the past three years.
