  1. Yesterday
  2. They are only approximations, though. Both the SEGA CD and FM Towns version seemed to have a darkened sky on their boxes, which I didn't do for my versions, to keep things simple. There are other versions out there that have "interesting" coloring, but for most of them it looks more like sloppy work by the printers instead of creative decisions. I'm not sure why I felt these two qualified as options.
  3. The recovered detail is staggering, and I appreciate having the options. When placed side by side, the first one is a bit warmed up for my tastes (though still valid and stunning) but the other two are Sophie's Choice for me. I never knew the FM Towns version turned that blueish hue into gray. I am being seduced in multiple directions!
  4. That banana has never looked so crisp… and tasty!
  5. It's done! I've added three versions of the "Secret of Monkey Island" artwork to the project, each one in three different color versions (Regular, SEGA CD, FM Towns). Eventually I'm going to add versions with the marbled border as well, but this'll have to do for now. HUGE thanks to Jake, who helped me to bring this project full-circle at last. MI1 and MI2 were the first posters I worked on, from which the LucasArts Posters project eventually was born. And now we finally have both artworks at amazing quality. So this is a major milestone!
  6. Last week
  7. Update: I mentioned on the ScummVM bug tracker that I would prefer it if ScummVM emulated the original, possibly buggy Mac font spacing in Indy 3, and eriktorbjorn very graciously agreed to see if it could be done as an option. That sort of incredible generosity reminds me that ScummVM is indeed a labor of love. My hat is off to him.
  8. Yes, along with many Marvel movies being "snowball delayed down the line", the next Indiana Jones movie has been delayed by 11 months. You'll need to wait until June 30th, 2023 to see this film. (From Engadget)
  9. The release notes for the new ScummVM release point out there's more support for the high-resolution Macintosh fonts in games like Last Crusade and LOOM - if it was there already in daily builds I must have missed it, but as a Mac gamer back in the day I quite appreciate it. And after I filed a bug report they put in the moveable Practice box in the LOOM Macintosh port, which is quite excellent! On the other hand, the Mac high-res fonts on some screens in Last Crusade (eg, the Grail Diary pages) are not pixel perfect in ScummVM, and the comments on the bug ticket say they have no intention of making them be so, because the original implementation of the font kerning "looks bugged" apparently. Maybe? But I do wish accuracy to the original interpreter was a goal ScummVM strove for all the time, rather than picking and choosing.
  10. Yes, I'm going to make a bunch of different versions, including that one.
  11. Pop till you drop! Are you also going to make a version with the logo, but without the border? I think that would be my preferred version.
  12. Here's a link from March: https://www.bossfightstudio.com/2021/03/19/new-sammax/ (btw, it's actually Rubber Pants Commandos - you're getting your Lucasarts-adjacent properties mixed up!)
  13. I was previously blind, but now I am able to see that this is popping!
  14. Obviously there's only so much you can say about these. Getting there: It's weird to see so much more on the sides when you've gotten used to the cropped art over the years.
  15. The second wave of the figures go up on preorder tomorrow. I personally am not interested in this wave of "Diaper Dynamos" and Scuba Max vs Octopus, but I do look forward a possible third wave of toys... and possible licensed LucasArts properties in the future.

  17. You can expect a photo in 44 years!
  18. Pictured below: what none of us will look like at age 79.
  19. With regard to the involvements of Nazis... SPOILERS The evidence points to the storyline taking place in the "present" of 1969, but that there will be a prologue sequence set during WWII. One thought is that Mads Mikkelsen plays an ex-Nazi who could be introduced in that prologue.
  20. Note: It's ScummVMs 20th anniversary! And GoG is also running a sale.
  21. I know almost nothing about the new movie but they can’t really use the Nazis unless it’s in flashbacks can they? The original movies were set not long before the end of WW2, and Crystal Skull was set in the 50s — long after the Nazis were a thing of the past. This movie is presumably set even more recently, i.e. 60s or 70s? So Nazis are off the table really. I guess they could contrive some top secret Nazi group that lives on, but it really wouldn’t have the same gravitas as the actual German war machine at the height of its power dedicating resources to the supernatural.
  22. i am looking at the pictures and i begin to be very sad , its like they could do the 4 movie the fate of atlantis and to end it , why to bring to the 4 and 5 movies the soviet , bring the true enemy of indy the Nazis . but i am going to see it because i am fan of indy
