Why not also move onto SCI1.1 for it?

You can read his resignation mail here:  :'(

Wow, I had no idea. I have had some email contact with Eugene in the past, most recently for my installer code for Blade Runner. He was always cordial with me, but that may have been just standard operating procedure for him when reaching out for code. I have felt that many of the ScummVM people do not have that high of an opinion of me, but that may be from the early efforts of adding SCI with complaints about our having the SCI Wiki and hosting the old Free SCI specifications. That along with the undithering nonsense. I cannot say that I really know Colin, but have always gotten along with him since the early days of VOGONS.

I knew that Collin had joined ScummVM for SCI1+, but had not heard he had left.

Too bad that there is no source for the Shivers 2 engine. I wonder how different the scripting was from SCI32.

Might be nice to add to the Wiki, too.

I'll email Lance and see if he'll give you access to his branch since it probably has a more complete backend for his C# interpreter.

Thanks for updating the Wiki, too, though I see that the source is still is for 1.2.3.

And for those who are hoping for a Linux version of WinAGI, I have decided to begin work on re-writing WinAGI in C#. It is going to take me a lot of time, as I am looking at a pretty steep learning curve. I'm not making any promises on a completion date, but I'll try to provide occasional updates.

Or you could build on top of Visual AGI for a bit of a head start. Lance's work should have filled in the logic and sound backend, so it mostly needs the sound editor and compiler.

DOSBox is readily available. Though it'd be nice to have this feature built into SCI Companion itself just for the sake of convenience.

A Win32 build would be good enough. Remember that Companion has a sort of "plug-in" system where it can call a third party tool from Companion itself. My NSIS Publisher and SEQTool GUI are two such. From the plugin folder readme:

Install plugins here by placing them in a subfolder.

SCI Companion will scan for .exe files and list them in the plugins menu.

If invoked from SCI Companion, the executable will be passed the path to the game folder as command line argument



Even if it was just a command line tool a frontend for it called by Companion would be easy enough to write.

And it does give us a glimpse at the play tester environment.

An old PCjr was found that was apparently  QA machine from Sierra. It contained  a copy of Iceman used for play testing. It was v 1.009, interp 0.000.660 with debug enabled.

Archive here:


Might motivate you to get started on it again.

I was going to do a new SCI0 template, but why bother? My SCI01 template fills that niche just fine, and has additional features (doVerb method, improved memory management, and scrolling styles, to name a few).

For completeness' sake? It would be nice to have ones for every main SCI version.

If you are unable to get it going via Wine you can try Chris' updated QT AGIStudio:

I think the reliance on OCX will be problematic on non-Win platforms and may start having issues on modern Windows going forward.

That's it! That's what irks me about those remakes!

The cartooniness?

I was only thinking of a starting point. Seems as if most of the Graham views needed could be taken from KQ5.
