    1 @bluegr:
    2 Question: Would it be uncomplicated for a GOG player to transition to ScummVM?
    3 Are there unpatching guides? Or instructive error messages to walk them through it?
    4 I'd like to recommend it to someone but don't wanna leave a bad first impression.

    8 > All sorts of GOG patch files related to [QFG] are quite broken, that's also why the GOG version doesn't work properly in ScummVM, because we do all sorts of security checks. The original interpreter checked almost nothing, which means that broken patches may still work somewhat. You can remove those script patches though and then it will work in ScummVM.

    10 > GOG uses Dos-Box for Quest for Glory, which then uses the original Sierra SCI interpreter. Because of that they are using all sorts of fan patches to get around timer issues and so on, but those cause other issues.
