Chapter 5 - the other plugins

from now on, i'll jump randomly between all the game engines, trying to post something new/interesting to try imo

--- Broken Sword II - the smoking mirror ---

i'll start from the second chapter, only because it seems never came out a complete attempt in past on DC
(i remember a demo)
and also because i'm still trying to find a better solution for the annoying audio stuttering of the first chapter

this sequel seems working little better for that point of view, at the cost of all the short background jingles/tunes,
that i decided to remove in this first attempt, it seems to me the better compromise to have the smoother gameplay

also, this game SUFFERS a way to much using the latest ScummDC releases, so i have builded it with an older one;
the speech files have been compressed in .mp3, all to fit in a single disc

added to the scumm download section :

Simon the Sorcerer Talkie version has been added to the download section :)
it's a variant of the game, that sadly has a worse running using the latest ScummVM releases
(audio talking) :

i don't know if i have a sixth sense, or maybe some at ScummVM read also DC-Talk forums,
but we were talking about ResidualVM (and Myst III) a couple of days ago, with @Anthony and @fafadou

so quite strange read this fresh news, on ScummVM forum :
https://forums.scummvm.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=15272

yes, ResidualVM is merging with ScummVM :!:
opening the doors for a couple of bigger games, like Grim Fandango, Escape from Monkey Island and Myst III

curious to wait if the Dreamcast would handle also this fork project :idea:
