Is it possible to get an image for full throttle, or broken sword through scummvm?

Post#1 » Mon Nov 16, 2020 6:46 am

I'm wondering because recently I downloaded a working version of beneath a steel sky for my gdemu. Now I was wonder if this is possible for games like Broken Sword (2) and Full Throttle? Or are these files too large maybe?

the DC-Talk ScummVM download section is here :

https://www.dreamcast-talk.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=43

there you'll find some pre-built attempts, and some infos too
Full-Throttle and Broken Sword 2 are there lol (both .cdi)

or maybe you are searching just for gamefiles, to make your own attempts ?

I was searching some sierra online old games (king quest, larry and more) on ScummVM, where I can ask in the forum?

If you mean to try on Dreamcast, you must only consider that early Sierra games are text based,
so the running on DC is not properly user friendly despite possible, maybe having a dc keyboard...
i don't know if the dc keyboard is compatible with ScummDC in effect

bit later Sierra games are ok imo, icon based
i have Larry 6 in my personal ScummDC collection lol

in general, are you searching for gamefiles or for pre-built releases ?

pre-built releases would be better for me (not so much skills to do a CDI by myself) =(

about the text based adventures: there isn't a virtual keyboard available on the SCUMMVM?!

let me know a title you want test, as i made the .cdi
so you can see directly how the virtual keyboard performs on DC
iirc basically you must press left trigger and then select with the dpad each character of the phrase,
press 'enter' icon to post the text and close the vkeyboard with left trigger again
this everytime you need to enter something, so imo not greatly with games with a lot of text input
btw, let me know, maybe you'll find it ok :)

basically you must press left trigger and then select with the dpad each character of the phrase,
press 'enter' icon to post the text and close the vkeyboard with right trigger

just made a quick test with old King Quest version (1,2,3) and various ScummDC releases;
seems ScummDC performs very poorly with AGI games, another plugin never implemented correctly :(
the main issue is the audio stuttering, terrible
and also, both analog and digital pads emulate the mouse pointer movement, it would be better
if one emulate the cursor keys instead, to help ie when you must use the stairs or other parts when
the mouse control is not efficient

ok, i'll try if someone of your list performs decently :)

Oh man, thank you very much!
However, the sound was poor also on the original MsDos version (the Pc speaker was struggling LOL)
