I'd love working on a C# port of SCI Studio / Companion. The only hurdle is probably starting... You'd have to put a lot of effort upfront to have a useful skeleton app, for which you could start porting one function at a time.

If someone would start such a project I'd love to join and help.

Cloudee, do you know of the other BC remake? It was done by one DreamMaster in AGS:

I took the liberty of importing your sourceforge SVN repository into github as well.
I believe GitHub is more suited for collaborative work (easy forking, more transparency) so I hope it'll increase the chance for someone picking it up (from 0.01% to 0.02%  :) )

Hi Omni, guys.
It's Omer, not Omar :-)
And you're right: I've got working code of SciCompanion over at GitHub:

It compiles fine with Visual Studio 2003, and contains all the dependencies.

I only fixed a minor alignment bug when running in a right-to-left OS.
I don't think I'll ever try to take on maintaining this beast, mainly because it was written in C++, and I'm a C# dev.

I uploaded to GitHub mainly for preservation.

Added the list here:
I had no idea where to reference it from in the wiki: I didn't get the order of things there.
Perhaps it should be linked from the navigation pane on the left?

Thanks, I'll add it soon. And no problem about HWM's list (still waiting for it).

I agree. You can copy it from scummvm's wiki, or tell me how I sign up for the SCI wiki.

SCI Syntax Help / SCI Debug Modes
« on: December 11, 2011, 01:03:45 PM »
I added HWM's FAQ on Sierra SCI Debug Modes to ScummVm's wiki:

I'd love to fill in missing information into this.
As a start, I've looked into LSL5 and came to the conclusion that script #10 is the debug script. I just don't know how to enable it. I tried reading through the script disassembly using the excellent SCI Resource Viewer (latest version:, but failed to understand it.
From what I saw, 0.scr is the one calling the debug script 10.scr, but I don't know what triggers it. If only we had a decompiler...

Can anyone here help?

Trimming for spaces and other non printing chars (tabs?) is a good idea. It'll convert "   Rexy   " to "Rexy" which is better.
Then you could add a check for the empty string ("") as well, and use a default one instead.
I don't know if a trimming method exists in SCI's current class library, but I guess it wouldn't be too hard to write one manually.

I believe an Inline If Statement should help you out:

Then you could probably use something like this:
Code: [Select]
EditPrint(@doggyName 14 "Aren't you a good doggy? Your name shall be:" #at 70 40)
Format(@buffer "You shall be known as %s." iif(= @doggyName "" @doggyName "Rexy"))
Print(@buffer #at -1 40 #mode alCENTER #width 250)

Keep in mind that I never written SCI code in my life, so it'll probably not compile, and might be complete nonsense.

Some background about the iif statemenet can be found here:,377.0.html

Omni: sorry to about your illness. I hope it goes away.
I'd like to thank you for your information about sci companion's compilation.
I pushed a version that is compiling, and also contains all the dependencies to github.
You can all fork it, or simply download a zip of the source, and compile it using vs2003.
Sadly, I haven't managed to upgrade the solution to vs2010 yet.
The repository is at:

Nice catch lance. Personally, I had no doubt it were them. Are you gonna email Avis now?

btw regarding obsolete sci sites:
Old tutorials by Lars Skovlund (lskovlund)
Some snapshots from an old sci messageboard from insidetheweb (sadly we can't read the posts, they were not archived :():
The SCI Scriptorium
Lance Ewing's The Hidden Secrets of Sierra

There were many more sites, the used hosting services such as which prevented archiving (through their robots.txt policy), and are now probably gone forever.

Thanks for the analysis lskovlun!
re: sq5 - I hang around in the scummvm forums, and I also check regularly github commits to the sci engine of scumvmm. I haven't seen anything relevant - can you point me toward it?

So the only thing left to do it try contact Avis as well. Maybe is more socially involved than Jeff and checks her emails and messages more often.
Here is a facebook page for a woman called Avis Durgan:
I bet it's her. You should give it a try!
