Re: A couple of Sierra SCI questions

Wait, is that possible now? I thought the ScummVM team was virulently opposed to such blendings. Has there been an ideological shift of some sort? Actually, you are right.

Re: A couple of Sierra SCI questions

Regarding point 1, it's indeed possible to play the game in DOSBox with MT-32 music and digitised audio, I did so in early 2013.

At the command prompt you can press F1 to toggle between text/graphic and text-only display, and …

I have been going through my collection of Sierra games from the 80s and seeing if I can get them to all work properly in DOSBox. Most are fine, but I …
