For a moment there you got me confused... I thought you meant this 1998 non-SCI game, while you meant the 1992 Nick's Picks one.  :)

Hah, thank you for clarify it, because until you said otherwise I still thought it was the 1998 one.

All I could think was: "Ohh, a mix of LSL1 and LSL5? I would have thought LSL7. Oh well, that's a peculiar bit of trivia."

Well, we had mentioned that were were talking about the Nick's Picks mini games. In fact I had assumed that Omer knew we were since he said that he had no source for any of them.

Yup, makes total sense. I was just on a different line of thought -- I forgot the Larry Nick's Pick's was called Larry's Casino, and assumed Eric had moved on to another game after mentioning the difficulties with Nick's Picks in general.

EDIT: Just took a look through my collection, and turns out that's the only Nick's Pick floppy I don't have.  Guess I never really played that one after all. Certainly knew of it's existence though.

It was included on a couple of the last LSL collections (not the 2006 VU warez compilation)

Another one down - Codename ICEMAN is ready for testing! This is based on version 1.033, which is the version that GOG sells.
I can see that this game extensively uses feature sorting, a special MouseDown handler, and the procedures in GoToSaid. Not too many games used those.

Perhaps someone motivated enough now could make a patch to skip the dreaded sub sequences that make so many give up on the game.

Has anyone looked at KQ5? The floppy versions are SCI0, but the MPC version is one of those with the x.yyy.yyy interpreters.

The floppy versions are actually very early SCI1 (so early that the Seasoned Professional VGA interpreter will work with the first release). The CD MPC version is later SCI1 (its system scripts most closely match that of Ms. Astro Chicken).

Yes. I have been doing the CD version, due to its availability on GOG and Steam as well as the collections.

When I do decompilations, I do the newest version of the games. I don't think I need the floppy version. But I think I've got it stored away somewhere in my files, so no, I'm fine.

Please please please please consider also doing the floppy versions. There are big differences (that goes for all Sierra CD/floppy versions). For one thing, more of KQ5CD is decompilable in Companion than the KQ5VGA/EGA floppy versions (which fall back to assembly more often). I ask because I've been patiently waiting for them so I can continue my No Dead Ends script patches for each version of KQ5.
