Your MAP file is likely to need updating as well.

And if you modified any of the resources found in external patch files (of which I recall QFG1VGA had plenty), you'll need to do something about them too... external patches take priority over ones in resource.000.

Yes, RESOURCE.MAP will need to be patched as well, since I had to convert it from SCI1.0 to SCI1.1 to be compatible with the new interpreter. As for the external patch files, they'll just be removed, as the upgrade will incorporate them internally.

Here is my work on the patch, with the new drivers and interpreter. You just need to drop in the original RESOURCE.000 and RESOURCE.MAP. However, the built executable fails to work, giving the "unable to open source file" error, even if the original unaltered resource files are in the same directory. Am I doing something wrong?

Apparently, it violates the Terms of Service, since it is allegedly infected with a virus. Try again. I think the Vpatch.exe is what set it off. Fortunately, the .vpj file, the important uncompiled patch file, is still there.

Eric:
"It will also use the music from the Macintosh version as it has native General MIDI tracks (unlike the DOS version, which uses a music patch for the MT-32 tracks)."

Thanks for posting this. I'm going to guess that they (MT->GM and "native" GM) are one and the same.. but in case not, can you send me the SND files from the Mac version? :)

Also, have you found this with any other Mac version?

I just sent you a link to the files. They are in fact redone in native GM, not patched MT-32 tracks. I have no idea if the other Mac versions got the same treatment.

I have never had Vpatch.exe flagged as malware, but the stub files with NSIS sometimes will give a false positive since a number of malware authors have used NSIS to package their goods. Usually just zipping the compiled installers is enough to get scanners to ignore them.
