Have no mouth and I must scream support?

Post by Sili » Sun Nov 04, 2007 10:31 pm

Hey all :)
I noticed about a month ago that you have "I have no mouth and i must scream support" in svn versions now, and was wondering if there was any ETA set for when it will be released to the public in a ppc binary? I was tickled pink to see the news as ive got a copy of the game in a box in our attic somewhere, but havent dug it out yet since I doubt it works with the ppc version?

does it already work with the ppc binary posted in the downloads section? I've been waiting about a month to post this but am now wondering if its already been incorperated and i'm waiting like a fool for something thats out already :)

I'd hate to dig through all those boxes of discs to find it, only to see it still doesnt work

Thanks for all the work you do, scummvm for PPC is EXCELLENT. Cant think of anything I'd rather do with my smartphone than play some old school adventure games.

An SVN build is coming soon. I'd give it about a week :-)

Note that currently the SAGA engine updates the full frame for each cycle, which can lead to slowdowns on systems with little CPU power (i.e. mobiles). The solution is to use "dirty rectangles" like the rest of the engines do, but this is not a trivial change, a lot of changes are needed to several parts

I Have no Mouth is not supported in the 0.10.0 release of ScummVM, it was added in 0.11.0 SVN. Please, can you give more information as to what problem you're having? (version of the game, a listing of the game's files, language of the game, what steps you did and what failed)
Sadly, saying that "it doesn't work" is not very helpful at all

it is the dos version of the game, the files are as follows. MUSICFM.RES, S.EXE, SCREAM.PRF, SCREAM.RES, SCREAM.SAV, SCRIPTS.RES, SFX.RES, TDU-JAM!.NFO in dosbox i can isolate the S.EXE file to run the game, minus sound and music which i sorely miss. i downloaded the 0.11 snapshot for osx but still can't get the game to work, i get the old "scummvm can't find a game in specified directory" routine. hope i gave you enough info!

Is this really from the original CD? Googling for it turns up references to the "TDU-Jam Pirating Group"...

That is an illegally distributed version of the game, sorry but you won't get any help here
