  1. Freezing and ScummVM crashing? I would attach a gdb to see where it crashes, but I don't know if you're able to do that, sorry.


    I have no clue at all about Mac OS X either; I'm a GNU/Linux zealot. :p


    In general, ScummVM doesn't do fullscreen itself. It uses a library called SDL for graphics output, i.e. anything having to do with putting the graphics it prepared onto your physical screen. So ScummVM just says "SDL, fullscreen this for me", and SDL manages everything.


    In either case, you'd probably want to file a bug report. See this page for (some) details: http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/User_Manual/Reporting_bugs . Also check if the problem is also in latest daily build ( http://buildbot.scummvm.org/builds.html ), though I don't think we changed anything regarding SDL lately; I'm assuming you already run the latest stable version.

  2. Hey man, wondered if i could delve into you ineffable wisdom please. I'm trying to fullscreen mode scummvm for mac osx v.10.8.4 but it freezes and scummvm crashes. I've read the help thread on the scumm boards but i haven't got a bloody clue what your all on about. Would you be able to please explain what i need to do in simple terms - big colourful pictures, four letter words etc? Much appreciated, cheers.

  3. Wow, seems this is what happens when you don't check your account for a while :p Account's been suspended now. I'm gonna write to twitter support about this, hopefully get it sorted. Cheers for the heads up though man, appreciate it.

  4. NO! FOR ALL THAT'S GOOD AND HOLY, NO! (errh, perhaps later... ) well, i can't stand halle berry and imho she is a very bad actress...
  5. Whoopi Goldberg as the voodoo lady...
  6. well, i loved (and still do) maniac mansion and zak mckracken...
  7. yeah, but the development was (sort of) nearly finished, so they've already spent nearly "$2 million"... so the only different between distributing and not distributing would be the happiness/angryness of the adventure fans...
  8. so now i found an english book, but i've got the same problem joshi has, page 14 is blank... so i take page 15 then... But you write what comes back to you, and then afterward it comes back to you all over again.
  9. well, it's a german physics book, but that's your problem now > Die abgeleiteten Einheiten aller anderen physikalischen Größen sind Produkte und Quotienten von Basiseinheiten der Grundgrößen.
  10. that's not fair... (i'm using mozilla firebird 0.6.1 on debian gnu/linux)...
  11. stephen king's dark tower is a story about roland, the last gunslinger in a world that "moved on" and his search for the "dark tower"... the 5th book will be out in germany this month... "jake, were are thou" just reminds me of roland being somewhat torn apart (in the 3rd book) because he can't tell whether jake, a boy from new york in the 70's, really was there (jake stepped in rolands world because got killed in his world, but roland stopped the murderer (later in his)/(earlier in jake's) world). so jake never died and came into roland's world. roland knows that, but he also know that ja
  12. mmh... "jake, where are you?"... the next part of stephen king's dark tower is coming out in germany this month... i just can't wait anymore... (i know, this is completely off-topic, but...)
