Keep up the Macromedia Director work

Hi Scummwm people,

I love your software because I played a lot of adventure games from Monkey Island to the remixed version of the Day of the Tentacle. And I love to play these games on Linux.

In my summer holidays I wanted to play to "Cosmology of Kyoto" and I had to play it in Basilisk because Scummvm doesn't support it yet.

Since I had free time (because of my holidays), I did a little of reverse engineering and I created a little python script to extract the sounds and images of this game. I hope that it could be useful for you.

The RLE compressed bitmaps are a little tricky and some of the images or the game aren't properly decompressed. If I had more time maybe I could fix it :(

Anyway, I think that the script is simple and easy to understand, but if you need some explanation don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you very much and keep up the good work. Maybe some day the Scummvm could be a DirectorVM too!

Thanks, that would be quite helpful if you change your license to GPLv2. Currently you're using GPLv3, so we cannot use your findings for improving ScummVM director engine code.

Sorry for my late response. I changed the license to GPLv2.
Also added some Lingo script decompiler functionality.

Best regards!

System25: Thanks for this, but as the Director engine is still WIP and there is no actionable item here, I am going to close this again. Can I suggest that providing any useful patches as Pull Requests to the director engine or if you want to discuss this, then a new topic on the forum would be best. Thanks.
