And recently Leisure suit larry 1-7 excepting the svga version of larry 6

I don´t know about quest for glory and police quest. But if it is not the case, I guess it is matter of time.

Last I looked QFG didn't change. Someone was saying that maybe it was because QFG4 isn't supported yet (the other 4 are) but that's just guessing I think.

I actually downloaded Leisure Suit Larry 7 from GoG two days ago, and I can confirm that the version for Windows now uses ScummVM, but the Mac version doesn't (it still uses wine). It looks like the Linux version also uses ScummVM (the change log on their web site says "Leisure Suit Larry: Love For Sail! is now available on Linux thanks to ScummVM 2.0.").

Furthermore the mac version crashes very early on when run with ScummVM, probably because of some patch files added by GoG to make it run properly with wine. Instead of tracking those patch files down it was easier to get the Windows download and install it with wine. Hopefully GoG will update their Mac version as well.

That's odd, I recently downloaded the mac version of the same game and played it from start to finish in ScummVM 2.0.0. I had a few crashes during gameplay but the game was completely playable. I can't remember exactly how I set it up but I opened the package contents of the app to separate the actual data files from the Wine framework.
