  1. scumm games on cell phones, that is absurd, but it sounds like something LA might consider because of the billing that will be involved, then again, cell phone games are targeted towards another generation of suckers, not our generation of SCUMM suckers (haha; get it, scumm suckers) therefore the idea is still insane. ScummVm was smart enough to let us play SCUMM on palm pilots and pocket pcs' ,that is as small as it should get.
  2. I'm a heavy supporter of scumm type games in flash. I think the idea of recreating old scumm games in flash is ingenius. Especially if they can become multiplayer enabled, with flash that makes things a whole lot easier. For example: imagine maniac mansion as a mutiplayer game, Each player (3 players) would get to be the character of their choice, nuff said! Of course the gameplay might have to change slightly but I think it is possible. With Implemented chat (as if the characters had walky talkies) would be cool. I actually have a desire to create a flash game that is similar to scumm games. But i need to get crackin on some macromedia studies. But here are links with examples of what is possible with the creation of Scumm-like flash games. http://justadventure.com/IndependentDevs/PinheadGames/index.html Pinhead games - scumm-like adventure games in flash! Case of the crabs and brain hotel! http://www.face-engine.com face engine is a site that offers a flash program that creates scumm-like games for flash, however, the site hasn't been working properly lately, I don't know why, and the site is in german (just look for the british flag to get the site in english). P.S. Hopefully after revenge of the sith is released in theaters and its following merchandising, lucasarts will get crackin on their SCUMM games! Just a dream, not a reality, sort of like the matrix! I will be unplugged. I'm beggining to feel like the rebel alliance with all this anti-lucasarts crap.
  3. I'm sorry, but I never felt the need to humiliate anyone on Lucasforums, but this telltaled crap is just absurd. I don't even know where to begin. If I wanted to find out whats going on with telltale then I would go to Telltale games, or mixnmojo!!! nuff said!
  4. The storytelling on the cd version of loom stinks!!! However, the graphics are cool, and the voice and music are cool too. I decided to compare the two versions of loom one day and found out that the floppy version of loom includes more of the storyline and cutscenes. Unfortunately, the CD version of loom lacks in the story and animated cutscenes, but has better graphics and sound. It would be cool if both versions were somehow combined to provide all the positives in both versions. Also, you are lucky if you have the floppy version of loom, cause "home of the underdogs" has a patch system to turn the floppy version into the cd version, its kind of a pain in the butt, but I bet looking for a copy of this game is too. Go to this link and follow the pain in th butt directions the underdogs have to offer. Last, I'll let you know that this version stinks! http://www.the-underdogs.org/game.php?id=655
  5. thank you tomas for bringing back lucashacks! I like how you kept the graphic of bernard on his a$$.
  6. WHEN WHEN WHEN WHEN !!!!!!!!, NOW NOW NOW NOW PLEASE. I'm really sick of seeing bernard on his tushi for everytime that I check to see if lucashacks is back in action. The word "SOON" isn't a good enough explanation for me anyways. Do you mean soon as in a couple of days, soon as in a couple of weeks, soon as in 3 months, soon as in a year, soon as in NEVER - I'M JUST BULL**ITING YOU FOR SH!TS AND GIGGLES!... Really, I deserve a full detailed explanation.
  7. if there is an emi debug mode could someone post the codes here, thanks.

    Thats really good to hear, I thought there was no hope for Lucashacks, I visit it everyday to see if the site has been updated with more material than just bernard on his @ss and those links.
  9. i am so pissed that sleeping is the only alternative for this. kind of pathetic, im taking a video game too seriously. But I was reallly looking foward to Sam and Max freelance police.
  10. I had a dream that Sam & Max was released for sale this june. I was so happy that I woke up immediately after that.
  11. hmmm, take a look at this, an adventure game made in flash, Hint, Hint... http://www.otterarchives.com/bountygame.html
  12. How come I am unable to post attachments and the rest of you are allowed to do so? This is unfair!
  13. Hey guys, I have a graphic of Max's head, I made it in adobe Illustrator. thought it would be great if I can get your opinions of it. Unfortunately, I don't know how to attach a file to this forum, or maybe its cause there is no possible way to attach files to this forum. If there is than let me know. But email me to see what it looks like, i think you guys would like this as an example for what the graphics of the fangame should look like.
  14. Wow, this forum gives off a pre-school vibe. I have and I want!!!! This is what sam and max has created!....Monsters. And the fact that the game has been cancelled has made things even worse. Don't worry, I don't have any problems with this, I am just proving a point.
  15. I guess the whole flash game idea is not going to work out. But it seems logical to use AGS since there are more people familiar with it. However, if there are any people interested in creating a scumm-like flash game then please email me and establish ideas and tips on how to do so. Scumm-like games in flash are rare and in fact they are pretty much non-existant. I think it would be a great idea to start creating flash based scumm games because once it is done then it will get easier and easier to create them. Plus, Flash is compatible with both Mac and Ibm computers so there is no border line between Mac users and Ibm users. And from my opinion, I think it will revolutionize the scumm gaming community. Also, I will still be willing to participate in this game as a graphic artist. Just as long as we consider this as a fangame and not an official sequel. Also, I'd like to thank Brushguy for placing me on the list as a graphic artist. But if you guys want to create in AGS, then so be it. My dreams will be smashed and life as I know it will be miserable. Just Kidding. Click here to see a scumm game creator for flash. Too bad it is in German. http://Http://www.face-engine.com , check out the game derrick that is linked within the site, it is kind of hard to play for the fact that is in german. But it is a good example of scumm gaming in Flash. Ok I'll shut up now! WE NEED FLASH PROGRAMMERS. IF THERE ARE ANY FLASH PROGRAMMERS THEN PLEASE EMAIL ME OR BRUSHGUY! Peace!
  16. Flash I tell you! Flash is internet compatible and can also be used to create executible files so they can be distributed on disk without relying on the internet!!! Flash can also be used on IBM and MAC, you can't go wrong with flash! But if you guys want to create a game in AGS then so be it. I wouldn't mind contributing with graphics or animations for a Sam and Max fan game. But if there is anyone interested in creating scumm like games in flash then please email me!
  17. that would be great to hear, if it was a planned out april fools joke.
  18. Ever Since the cancelation of S&M freelance police, Jake has been posting less often, I don't blame him either.
  19. one word=scummVM http://www.scummvm.com download the scummvm mac os x version in the downloads section, I am able to run sam and max dos version with that.
  20. I think the so called cancellation of Sam and Max 2 was all just a set-up so Lucasarts could see our reactions and get a big kick out of it. They wouldn't be that dumb to cancel a game that could revalutionize the gaming industry to become more humorous and adventure-like. Rumors from these forums state that the release date is on may 6th becuase of people purchasing preorders that reveal a so called release date, and now this screenshot states the release this coming fall. I have one question though: When was this article released? Was it released recently, or is this article from before the cancelation?
  21. and another thing would make the world a better place, bringing back Lucashacks! I'm sick of seeing that damn picture of bernard on his ass everytime I visit the damn site.
  22. Hmmm, seems like there are a lot of people questioning the whole flash idea. And there are also people assuming that this would be a fan game that would take over Sam and Max Freelance police, but that would not be the case. The game would be considered a fangame and it would have nothing to do with the 3d sequel: Sam and Max Freelance police. It would most likely be easier to create a fanbased game in the highest quality 2D graphics to preserve the style of Sam and Max's animation, very similar to Curse of Monkey Island. I would love to participate by creating Flash animations and learning actionscript to make it a flash based game. But I am in the process of learning flash, I have covered all aspects of Flash animation, but Actionscript is a different story. If there is anyone interested in creating a fan game in Flash please email me. If there are any people who are skilled in flash, especially with actionscript, please email me. And last but not least, if anyone has run into an adventure game that is flash based, then please email me a link or post the link on this forum. My goal is to learn as much as I can about adventure game creation within flash.
  23. It sounds a little far fetched, and I am beggining to think that these forums have dillusional fans (including myself). However, I understand what you are saying, in your dillusional story, you refer to the aliens as the Lucasarts developers who work on these so called Star Wars games. I could believe that the developers of Sam and Max were abducted by wookies and boba fett (or whatever his name is). It makes perfect sense. But if that was the case, then Lucasarts should have included that in the message. But of course that wouldn't happen cause Lucasarts enjoys pulling our legs.
