Simon the sorceror savestate requests?/

Post by crazyjudge »

Hiya I'm really annoyed because I cant get into SS1 & SS2 coz of copy protection issues so I was wondering if it would be possible for someone to upload a savestate for each game just after you clear the protection screen so i can play them?? Thanks. :lol:

Or you could consult your original documentation (you DO have that, do you?) and enter the correct codes yourself?

Normally, the floppy disk versions of Simon the Sorcerer had copy protection, but that *should* be bypassed by ScummVM, since it was bypassed in all CD versions of the game, at least according to our wiki:
http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/User_ ... protection

If any copy protection appears, you can bypass it by entering anything you want

Depends on which version of ScummVM you're running, though. From what I can see, the bypassing was added about a year ago, so it's probably in 0.10, but not in 0.9.

sorry I posted it before trying the games, the last time I tried playing them was a while back and I had problems, so I assumed they were still there. I've tried with version 0.11 and both games are working funky! :D ta!
