  1. A six inch screen is nowhere near the size of a laptop. I had a bad day again, she said I would not understand. She left a note that said, "I'm sorry...I.. had a bad day again." Spilled her coffee, broke her shoelace, smeared the lipstick on her face. Slammed the door and said, "I'm sorry...I.. had a bad day again." And she swears, "There's Nothing Wrong!" and here I play this same old song. She PUTS ME OFF AND PUTS ME ON, I had a bad day again! She said I would understand left a note and said, "I'm sorry I had a bad day again." Spilled her coffee, broke her shoelace, smeared the lipstick on her face.

  2. It would've helped to kindof underlined it in the first part. I usually don't use a mouse pointer to read text.
  3. Shaft...DOH! I knew that... I was just sleaping with People's Meth Whores the other day, man those spanish girls are really open when it comes to "togetherness" I think that there is no name for 1 guy 57 girls.
  4. good riddens. I thought that all would have to see me. Well as long as I know I have an outlet...
  5. Yeah, and how much did the iPaq cost? Was it in color, and what brand of magnifying lens did you use.
  6. Well, I think pictures are a great idea, and why don't we just say, hey, let's all see each other naked, so we could get over the embarrasment of seeing our faces and on to the embarassment of seeing our

Name a movie that you've really liked despite almost everyone else you know not liking it: The Princess Bride 9. All of these lists always ask you to talk about your most embarassing moment; What was your least embarassing moment?

One time I was looking at a picture with/of my good friend Haley, and I thought it was her sister Sarah, and I said it out loud. 11.

  8. (this is a repeat post of the one found in the Scumm hacking community) For those of you who have more than one computer, and have them networked together, there is a simple way to enjoy SCUMM games from any computer but only stored on one. Now many of you already know this, because it is a quite simple task, but for those who don't, here goes. First: If you have a network already set up, like the router/switch/hub is all said and done, you might only be using it for DSL. If your network is already set up to share files, skip this step. Well, in windows XP, open the "Network Setup Wizard" in the control panel and do the following... click here Once you have created your network on all of the desired computers in your home (with diferent names and descriptions but all with the same group name) you are ready for step two... Step two, put all of your SCUMM games in one folder (most of you already have) Mine are in "C:\program files\lucasarts" then in sub folders, such as mine are listed by there names"C:\program files\lucasarts\curse" "C:\program files\lucasarts\loom" etc. Now if you already have SCUMMVM set up like this, the process is much easier... Right click the main folder (lucasarts) and click properties. Go to the sharing tab, and chose to share this folder and give other's on your network permission to make changes to this folder (IMPORTANT FOR SAVING) Now, on the computer you wish to play the game on, open any explorer windows and type \\(name you chose for the computer with the games) in the address bar. example, \\Upstairs You should see the folder labeled LucasArts, right click it and click "Map Network Drive..." Chose a drive name that is not currently being used by this computer and click finish. Now, after doing this on all computers other than your host computer (the one with the games), go to the host computer and share your SCUMMVM folder and click the allow others to change my files bullet. Also, you will want to copy the ScummVM.ini file in the windows directory and paste it in the ScummVM folder. Now on your other computers, open up the SCUMMVM folder like you did the LucasArts folder, and open the ScummVM.ini file. In notepad, chose EDIT>replace and in Find What... type C:\prgram files\LucasArts\ replace with... type H:\ (or the letter you chose in the "Map Network Drive..." command. This process is much easier than going in Scummvm and editing all the paths, but it only works if you already had the games set up in one file on the host computer. Now in Find What..., type C:\scummvm Replace with... H:\ (for this step, you may also want to put the ScummVM folder in the LucasArts folder, so that all this is made much easier, then just type H:\scummvm instead of H:\. ScummVM.INI should look something like [comi] aspect_ratio=true description=The Curse of Monkey Island fullscreen=true gfx_mode=2x language=en master_volume=192 music_volume=192 path=H:\Curse sfx_volume=192 speech_volume=192 subtitles=false talkspeed=60 tempo=100 You are almost done, "save as..." ScummVM.ini in the windows directory on the slave computer(C:\windows). Now copy ScummVM or ScummVM Q+E and paste a shortcut either on the desktop or in the start menu. Now you can open ScummVM from any computer you do this to and play any of the games... (all games mentioned in this article are property of LucasArts, and are legal versions bought and sold from LucasArts and or EBay.) (open for comments)
  9. well, currently, ScummVM doesn't support Networked files unless you mount the folder as a drive, maybe you (since you know everything) could put this into ScummVM Q+E, a way to just pick the network drive letter, and ScummVM Q+E would automatically make the changes. Or just maybe a bulk path editor, that you just say the root folder, and ScummVM Q+E will change all of the folders to one folder and just keep the last folder (i.e. curse) that the files are actually in. (see this page)
  10. Forget it. Apperently I'm not going to get through here... BTW, I didn't plan to have any investors, as this is a NON-PROFIT production. Well this sucks, just like the zaktowns cd I got that doesn't work.
  11. You see, that's just it, I know this could work out. I have the abesolute dedication to this project, and I can get it done, with your help. I don't want tot do the cell phone idea, mainly because it would really suck on a tiny screen and a button cursor. You see, the reason Apple Ipod's are so expensive are because the company that sells them makes them for a large profit. You see, I am not making these for a profit. On average, a Hoover vacuum cleaner costs about $175, it costs about fifteen dollars for them to make the vacuum. Now, the screen is color lcd, it is about the size of 5x7 notecard (not exactly, but about that size only with the standard 3:4 ratio of 320x240/640x480. The cursor, instead of being all buttons will be an actual trackball that you use with your right thumb, and the buttons under this mouse ball. I haven't yet made the prototype, as I have no marketing team, just a bunch of IT guys and a few friends who like computers. In fact only one other than me even knows about the LucasArts game series, and this is through me... I CANNOT DO THIS WITHOUT YOUR HELP. WITH YOUR HELP WE CAN DO THIS. We have most the people we need right here. And one of my A+ certified proffesionals actually works in Atlanta in a support bureau for HP's pocket PC division. I am dead serious. No lying, joking, no dreaming, this is REAL. I think that this product would be a great leap forward to this community, and even a huge step forward for LucasArts, ScummVM, and the fans. This product would be really cool, and highly marketable. Come on, won't somebody help me? Maybe if I drew up the plans and the budget, and the 3d modelling for the prototype, then maybe you'd help. Although I kinda need help there too, but whatever.
  12. Well, you see making a cell phone would be too difficult for me to achieve, as it is a piece of highly complicated machinery, plus the whole SIM card thing is just too much to deal with. The final outcome of the project would not only play LucasArts games, but also fatty bears fun pack's, flight of the amazon gueen, and all of those other ScummVM compatible games. and I will impliment the auto-update feature, so that when ScummVM is updated, we'll make our patches and send you the update email, so you can use the provided SD card in the multi cars slot and the ScummVM Mobile program will automatically launch it. Well, the overall pricing will come to about $75 to start with, but then when I have made enough profit to cover the cost of research and developement, it will be at cost. You know, no profit to me, just whatever it took for me to make it. I am not doing this for money, but for the joy of Adventure gamers everywhere. I know this doesn't sound very promising, but I am putting everything I have into this project, I may just be throwing myself into a pile of debt, but can't someone just please come with me. The more people that help out, the more promising this is. You see I need your help as fans of these games. So come on, even if you have no experience whatsoever, throw your gloves in the ring. Not for you, not for me, not even for little Billy down the street, whom spends all hours playing gameboy, but do it for Dave who fought hard and died thousands of times trying to save his girlfriend, and for Sandy, who was locked inside the mansion without hope. Do it for Guybrush, who bravely went where no man has ever gone before to become a pirate. For Leslie and Melissa, who all we can tell that for the last ten years have been in Mars refilling their helmets, waiting for the day that the van will actually go to Earth this time and not just be stuck in space, only to find that it always ends up back at mars. Do it for Elaine and Herman, for Indy, for Bobbin Threadbare, for Sam and Max (and the guy who dies in the beginning being poked off the stairs). Do it for THESE people, the people you grew up with, that made you laugh and cry and hit your computer thousands of times in frustration. These people who taught you exactly what it means to be a team, to be a winner, to give voodoo cursed diamond rings to you girlfriend then get it all better again, how to save the world. So come on does no one care about Le Chimp anymore? Now who's with me?
  13. well, I can see that I am not going to get any help here, I guess that the credit and the product testers will all be from somewhere else, and to think, I was going to give them away to the people here, but I see that none of you would want them.
  14. But I have evidence that this can be done, as I plan to have an actual computer with a hard drive of 10gb and an LCD 256 color display set at 640x480 native and 320x240 fixed, so it can play the retro games and COMI. It will be a fix of the ScummVM program, only it will be an OS version, that is automatically booted when you turn on the mobile device. This is not a cell phone, it is basically a stripped down mobile C64. 128mb ram, and weighs in at .98 lb. so it is the size of the ipod only horizontal, and has a multi card slot, and is controlled by a trackball on the right side, and button below the trackball. A roland speaker emulation, and directx compatible graphics interface. It will be like a MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIRMENTS type thing in a handheld. You know just enough to run smoothly. I haven't worked out the details, but a prototype should be ready by 2-06. A long time to wait, but only five people have agreed to help...

  16. Why is this so funny, I am dead serious. I really want to get this out there so that people can play these retro games from aywhere. I know it is a big job, but someone has to put forth the time and effort to do it. That person is me. I will spend the next portion of my life in research, developement, marketing, and legalities of this device that I think every big fan of the lucasarts adventure games will love to play. This is no joke, it is only been my dream to make this happen, so that people of all walks of life, who cannot afford to buy pocket pc's or color Palm's can use this to be able to take it on the road. Please, if you want to do something, don't discourage me, help me. MD
  17. Alright, now many of you may know about my failed attempt at bringing the world of Lucasarts adventure gaming to the world of cell phones. You laughed at my ideas using a JAVA based scripting, and you called me an idiot... the screen was too small, the games crashed, and the cell phone bill I recieved that month had over $50 worth of download charges, which is a big deal when you have no job... But I am here to say, that with a little bank loans and credit card debt, the world of mobile gaming is underway once more, as I try and develope the SCUMMVM® MD. (mobile device). A handheld computer system running on a minimum system requirments basis and an auto boot into the SCUMMVM system, no windows or palm screen, just SCUMMVM with a memory card reader that can read SD xD and compact flash cards up to 2 gigabytes of space.... Now, I need lots and lots of help.... for more info, please email me at M.Debator@gmail.com.... Thank you.
  18. Wow, no editing, no mercy just banned... hmmm... We should be a bit more carefull... I was currently working on a JavaVM for monkey island games, when I realised that it was a)barely working b)too small to even make out c) illegal. So I have stopped production. If I could just get a little help... And I don't think doing things illegally is the right way to go. And I think that Maniac Mansion is one of my favorites now, and Sam and Max.
  19. Well, I bought all of the following games this past month, and I wanted to know what you guys think, and what I need to play them... Oh, and where is that patch for the LOOM floppy? here's the list... (* indicates one I already had; ** indicates non-english version) Zak Mckracken and the Alien Mindbenders (US DOS floppy) Maniac Mansion (US DOS floppy) Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (US FDOS floppy) The Secret of Monkey Island (US amiga) The Secret of Monkey Island (US VGA floppy) The Secret of Monkey Island (US EGA floppy) The Secret of Monkey Island (US VGA cd)* The Secret of Monkey Island (US VGA cd-Monkey Madness<aka.alternate>)* The Secret of Monkey Island (DE VGA floppy)** Loom (floppy) Loom (FM-Towns) Sam & Max (US) Day of the Tenacle (US) Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis (US) Monkey Island 2: Lechuck's Revenge (monkey madness)* Monkey Island 2: Lechuck's Revenge (US) Monkey Island 2: Lechuck's Revenge (CR)** The Curse of Monkey Island* Well, I don't have a scanner, so I can't give you pictures, but I can tell you my hard drive is almost full, as I have taken most of them off their original format. I have spent hours getting these all sorted with the proper ScummVM shortcuts with the proper cmd arguments, but I have done it!!! I don't know why I bought the other languages, it was kind of an accident, this guy was selling them to me, and he regaurded to mention that they were in German and in Czech. Well, I only need the Dig and Full throttle to complete my SCUMM collection. Oh, and the old games are really beautiful in the windowed mode of ScummVM Q&E <bgbennyboy> Well, as soon as I get my LOOM FM-Towns, I will be finished, how do I play it? and how do I get it to my HD? I have no idea what FM-Towns is, but I think it is a cassette tape...
  20. Speaking of which, I just bought the FM-Towns LOOM, and when it ships next week, I am going to need instructions on using it. How do I? What is it, a tape deck with the line-in, line-out, and remote?
  21. Ahhhh... It is in part with the well-known ScummVM. OK, I'll go on the ScummIRC.
  22. Will it be useful for JUST Grim and M4? If you could give the source code, so I can finish my update on MI1 and 2, I am trying verry hard to edit the levels in CMI...
  23. Yes, I am an American, sue me. Actually, I know a little German, and a fair amount of Russian/Ukrainian mix. [move][glow=red,2,300]Keyword here is a little[/glow][/move] <font style="filter:glow(color=red, strength=2); height: 1;">Keyword here is a little</font>
  24. Well, do you have links to image editors? Animation makers? GIF editors? You COULD have those.
