GOG probably will sell Pegasus Prime if it gets ScummVM support. They did the same with Beneath a Steel Sky.

I wasn't aware BASS was being sold on GOG right now.

Bass, TeenAgent and Lure of the temptress are all available as freeware on GOG.

I bought Lagacy of Time for the enhanced graphics and after regestering my account I already got some games for free. BASS was installed with a version of scummVM for XP compatibility, though I manually loaded it so I could use midi music rather than adlib. If they sell peg prime, they will most likely use scummVM

I just wanted to chime in that I am very excited about the possibility of supporting Pegasus Prime and I hope this shall come to pass. I got a boxed copy from eBay years ago on the off chance that I could play it sometime in the future.

Good planning! I'm still waiting for a cheap copy to turn up somewhere

If nobody noticed, Pegasus Prime is now in the latest daily build at the bottom of the downloads page. I'm playing it right now!

For windows users, especially if ur using a 64-bit OS, your best bet is to use HFSExplorer, as HFVexplorer wont work unless your on a 32-bit OS. Most other programs that can access the HFS partition on the cd or iso, might not work, as alot of the files get extracted as JMP PP Resources instead of ._JMP PP Resources, which is the correct way, and no file should be 0 bytes. I selected the PP Data folder on all CD's and extracted it all as data and resource fork.

I was wondering if anyone who has played this in scummVM, has encountered a problem with the game freezing if trying to crush the robot in Norad using the pressurizing door.

I was able to complete it by using the other method to kill the robot which is with the claw. Hopefully its just a bug and not something wrong with my CD.

To extract on Windows, each person has to manually adjust settings for each individual file going back and forth in HFVExplorer? Seriously?

This is exactly the sort of thing that only one human should have to do once. It's what we've got scripting languages for.

I'll see about borrowing a Mac tomorrow to do the extraction on. Maybe that'll be easier

I didn't have to do that. I just selected the PP Data folder on each CD, extracted it to a folder as data and resource fork and let the program do all thinking. Let the program also auto-rename. I would extract each of the 4 CD's in their own directory, then one by one select the 2nd CD PP Data folder, than the 3rd, then the 4th and overwrite everything in the 1st PP Data folder, then your all set, took me like 5 minutes.

Ok so anyway, I'm documenting my way thru the game on scummVM. The first problem I encountered I guess was a bug...You can't kill the robot in Norad by crushing him with pressure, the game freezes with a infinite audio loop, but you can use the grapple arm thingy. No big deal..
