Many (most?) SCI0/SCI01 official games had right-click look.

Which LockerGnome? Redux had SciAudio.

I really should get sciAudio into Sierra script format.

I'm using Redux's code as the basis, with the SciAudio portions commented out and their relevant scripts unused.
I also made the individual objects in the locker into PicViews by carefully removing them from the picture resource, then placing them into a view resource. This is kind of how QFG1EGA and QFG2 drew various non-moving objects as PicViews, rather than making them part of the picture.

In regards to right-click look... I know that QFG1EGA, QFG2, KQ1SCI, Conquests of Camelot, Codename Iceman, and Colonel's Bequest have this.
The ones that don't are KQ4, LSL2, LSL3, PQ2, and SQ3.

With SCI01, putting the mouseDownHandler in the game is enough to enable right-click mode. With SCI0, I need to research this further.

I was not discounting your efforts, just noting that it restores a functionality that was in the official games. It is good to have it in or restored the template game.

Here's my work on LockerGnome Quest: SCI01 Edition. It has been tested to completion, with the game responding to much of the possible parser commands, and includes a file containing output from the Feature Writer, which has been quite useful for writing the room's features.

And right-click looking was actually not a feature included in the original SCI0 template. That's one reason my templates are a huge improvement. :)

Nice. Does it also feature scrolling background transitions?

Yes. The show styles are in the interpreter, which in this case is 1.000.172 (from Seasoned Professional EGA). This is a newer version than QFG2 and KQ1SCI's interpreters, which also have scrolling styles. It is also the final interpreter version with both EGA graphics and a parser.

I'm 99.99% sure I want to migrate my current project from SCI0 to SCI01!

I only have a couple questions:
1. Is the template generally complete? I guess it hasn't been tested a whole lot, so it's hard to say, but I just wanted to make sure.

2. I have the ability to mass extract resources from my project, but is there a way to mass insert resources while keeping all the same resource numbers, etc? Or am I going to have to do that manually? I have, ahem...a lot :)

Yes, it's just about complete.

If you're managing resources as patch files, it's just a matter of drag-and-drop. Pics and views are fully compatible. Sounds will need to be converted to SCI1.

Thanks for getting back to me!

I don't know much about SCI1 and music. Would something like MT-32 sound work?

Would scripts generally be comparable, or is the syntax in the template skeleton too different from SCI0?

EDIT: I started migrating, but I think it's just going to be too much for me to handle. I'm still fairly amateur when it comes to programming, and having to wade through all the errors and looking through the template for potential answers is a bit tough for me at this time.

I really like the extra heap and other functionality, but I don't think I'm ready to overcome the barrier to entry (relearning new constants/methods/naming conventions/etc.)
