The fanmade patches for Monkey Island 1+2 do work in ScummVM now.

Oh sweet! Sure enough, just tried it out :) Now I can finally get rid of the old hacked version of ScummVM

I don't see how this would be a "fan patch". It's not a change to the game itself, but to how the interpreter renders the UI.

md5 is talking about the fan patches which patch the new voice over into the old datafiles and some other minor stuff.

I see yeah. Well I am not too fond of that idea to be honest ;-).

I'm not sure if I'd actually play that way either, but with widescreen monitors being the de-facto standard, it might be time to find a better solution than either stretching or borders, especially considering that the actual game area already is widescreen in a lot of supported games.
