  1. Yes, on pc the DVD release is still the only way to get the Boen version of episode 1. I remember them saying they would update it for everyone else, but they never did. By way of penance for the mistake I've made this. Its the voice files from the DVD version backported to the older downloadable version. To use it, backup the original voice .ttarch and replace it with this. Benefits: It has Earl Boen's voice for LeChuck. The quality of some of the voices will be better. The original release stored some voices as ogg and some as speex which is lower quality. In the DVD version all voices are ogg. Drawbacks: The lipsync and animations were redone for Boen's LeChuck. So LeChuck's lipsync will be wrong. This is particularly noticeable with longer lines of dialog like in the intro. How was this made?: The DVD version uses a slightly newer version of the Telltale engine so you cant just drop the DVD bundle into the original release and have it work. I dumped all the voice files from the DVD voice bundle, wrote a quick program to parse the .aud files and make them the same format as the .aud files from the original release. Then I built a new .ttarch bundle with the modified files. I had a look at backporting the .anm animations to fix the lipsync issue but the format is noticeably different between the two versions so after a quick try I abandoned it.
  2. Our ears failed us, the version in the Limited Run pack is the original Harrington one.
  3. Before Jason made the Mojo post we checked that it was Boen. I installed episode 1 of TMI from Limited Run and extracted a few bits of LeChuck speech to confirm it. Now I'm second guessing that and wondering if our ears failed us.
  4. I completed it a few days ago. Its a superb game, really polished and certainly the best game Doublefine has made.
  5. Doxbox-X or Virtualbox would be fine I'm sure. It'd just be having to install Windows 95 that would be a pain.
  6. Some people have recently been trying to run Curse of Monkey Island natively rather than through ScummVM. I wrote programs to help with this years ago but haven't updated them since ScummVM became more capable. Here for when I forget this in a week for posterity is a quick guide to getting CMI working in Windows 10: Install the game using my installer The game will work fine in windowed mode but will just crash in fullscreen so... Get DGVoodoo2 In the zip extract the dlls in the \ms\x86\ folder to your CMI folder The game will then run fine in fullscreen. If you want to change the aspect ratio and scaling extract dgVoodooCpl.exe to the CMI folder and run it. For those who don't want to go digging for their original cds, archive.org has ISO images for CMI. Why is this necessary? CMI has a 16 bit installer, so it wont work in 64 bit versions of Windows. Hence my installer. CMI normally needs the cd's inserted to play - my installer and launcher fixes that. In Windows 10 CMI refuses to work in fullscreen no matter what compatibility settings I try. DGVoodoo2 converts the old graphics API's to their modern equivalent and this lets CMI work fullscreen.
  7. That looks great, what a demake that would be. The music as 8 bit chiptune tracks. 8 bit Rusty Anchor.
  8. I've released new versions of 4 programs: Double Fine Explorer adds support for the .isb files in Psychonauts so it can play all music/speech/sfx and fixes some minor issues with the main .pkg bundle. See the readme for more information. Telltale Music Extractor, Telltale Speech Extractor and Telltale Explorer now all support The Walking Dead Definitive Series and the wonderful Sam & Max Save the World remaster. Download links on the software page.
  9. Nicely done! I used to have scripts for a number of games where I'd batch decompiled them all. This is much better, I like the way you've arranged and commented them.
  10. I've hidden the off topic post. Everyone keep it on topic and keep it nice please.
  11. I was just thinking exactly that. Perhaps I'm misremembering, but it feels years ago you'd actively have to look at some dark corner of the internet to find hateful stuff, now its leaked out everywhere. I don't want weirdo culture-war people brigading the things I like with trumped-up outrage. This review is the best response so far.
  12. Tim Schafer just linked to this on Twitter. Its brilliant.
  13. We have all of Lucasforums archived here. You mean this thread.
  14. That's probably what I'm thinking of, its been...a few years.
  15. That's awesome! I wondered if it was like the MI1 icon - where the colours are messed up in Workbench 3 (I didn't realise that for years). I checked and that's sadly not the case. Also while you're here thank you for the directory opus adf plugin
  16. I don't think I've seen that poster before, I really like it. Did it come with one of the remastered releases?
  17. Laser it says you have 211 messages and Thunderpeel you have 170. So that must be why. I've bumped the quota up to 250 for now.
  18. The only vaguely relevant thing I can see is that max stored conversations is set to 50. And its set to stop you sending messages to people who have reached that. I've bumped it up to 55 to see if its that.
