AGI fanmade games (download link inside)

Post by sev » Tue Jan 09, 2007 6:47 pm

Hi all,

I just uploaded my collection of AGI fanmade games. There are just 188 of them, and AGI detector knows about all of them. However, there are several misses, so, if you will encounter some version ScummVM cannot detect, please, drop me a note. List of misses you may find in accompanying file List.txt (all files with space before them, not 'x', or '-', or whatever).

The download link is here. Unfortunately I had to use RapidShare. So if somebody has means of hosting them at some more convenient place, please, drop me a note as well.

Our Wiki editor, clone2727 will approach you with some request about these games, so keep them handy.

I'd be happy to host the file. Trouble is RapidShare is stupid and I can't get it...

Mirror for the download is here. It can stay there as long as you like and I'll refresh the file as required!

188 :shock:

I think now we need a directory structure in scummvm (already discussed here). Maybe with two lists in the main window. One to let us choose the engine, other for the game.

An option to add all know games in all subdirectories is also welcome.

However, I forgot to mention that I am going to improve detection routines which will affect mainly AGI engine. Currently games will be detected with somewhat inconvenient "Sierra AGI Engine (English/DOS/Caitlyn's Destiny (demo))". Please, do not report this. It will be fixed.

I hope detection gets better. For example, I just wondered when I tried to run a few fanmade games if ScummVM is detecting all AGI games by their md5. I tried to run the template game from AGI Studio and it's not working. So I suppose if anyone develops a game with AGI Studio and want it to run in ScummVM, he has to report it to the developers first. And then when this creator does some bugfixes in his game the md5 is again different, he has to report it, and so on. I don't know how many people still create AGI games, but you have to add some md5 every once in a while when a demo/game/new version of a game is done.

No, this will definitely be fixed. We will use fallback detection based on file names.

Amazing piece of work there, sev, on getting all those fan-made games together. Quite a few that I was missing in my collection, I'm looking forward to trying them out :)

I put up a mirror here for anyone who cares. It should be able to stay there years to come.
