Re: Reelmagic/Realmagic MPEG games

in DOS
Thanks for the vid. The cutscene quality is a huge step up. Let's hope it will be working in the dosbox fork soon. I'm glad it works at least on the real hardware! The cutscene quality in the non-MPEG version is like the worst cutscene quality of any FMV game ever. The pixels are gigantic! Thank …

Re: Reelmagic/Realmagic MPEG games

BTW, Silent Steel also has an MPEG2 version released in DVD-ROM. I was going to say that also - and given the DVD version, the MPEG version is much less interesting to me. No :) I have played the DVD version, and what do you know - the MPEG version is actually better! In DVD, they have somehow …

Re: Reelmagic/Realmagic MPEG games

One person from Mobygames has also promised me to archive this game, but - who knows when. Hmmm....I wonder who that could have been! LOLOLOLOL The preferred method - is to make the images of the disks (if they do not have CD Audio tracks and complex copy protection, then ISO and Daemon Tools, ISO …

Re: Reelmagic/Realmagic MPEG games

in DOS
I have basically all of those games on the first part of the list...unfortunately I still have not dug Conspiracy out of storage, but I recently picked up the Prince game and I should have that on hand. I am willing to archive it if someone tells me the preferred method to do so. I also have a …

Re: Reelmagic/Realmagic MPEG games

in DOS
I've since picked up some more of these but have not dumped any of them. I'm still interested in this topic but unfortunately, nobody with skills ever expressed interest in trying to get these games running without the special hardware.

Re: Reelmagic/Realmagic MPEG games

in DOS
That's awesome.... you would win +100 internets if you were to zip the MPEG files up and host them somewhere ;) Well, it would probably be better if someone could help get them to play within the game, right? Let's see if anyone responds... BTW, I already made an ISO of the Conspiracy MPEG disk. I …

Re: Reelmagic/Realmagic MPEG games

in DOS
Very interesting. I own the original DOS version of Return to Zork and still have the box, encyclopedia etc. I always wondered why the Wizard's image turned static once you went underground. I believe ScummVM supports Return to Zork but this is the first time I've heard of the realmagic version. …

Reelmagic/Realmagic MPEG games

in DOS
(Paging Gulikoza) :) As most of you probably know, there was an add-on MPEG decoder board sold back in the day under the name Reelmagic/Realmagic. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RealMagic The games that supported this board had a separate version released called the "MPEG version" rather than the same …

Re: Star Trek: Starfleet Academy DVD on XP

in Windows
Other than the missing install log, I've been unable to see any other side effect. How can you tell? Do you know what files are supposed to get copied into the directory? What files do you have there? And how do you know there isn't supposed to be some registry entry created at the end or something …

Re: Star Trek: Starfleet Academy DVD on XP

in Windows
OK, so I reinstalled ac3filter and rebooted. Between those 2 actions, I can now play the movies fine again through media player. But I still get the same error when trying to run the game. I assume that mpeg2dec is an mpeg2 decoder but I never heard of it. Where can I get it? Is it just a dll? If so …

Re: Star Trek: Starfleet Academy DVD on XP

in Windows
OK, definitely making progress. Now either executable will run. The problem is, I'm getting a popup saying "Some of the streams in this movie are in an unsupported format." and then another popup from DXMCI saying "Error loading video". I tried to play the movies in Media player directly (which …

Re: Star Trek: Starfleet Academy DVD on XP

in Windows
OK, so what am I doing wrong? When I use this dll with the hacked executables provided above, I get "The procedure entry point dimeKillEvent could not be located in the dynamic link library DXMCI.dll." And this DLL is much smaller than the previous one. ???
