#13467 new feature request

Built in Point & Click Support for GRIM Games

Several years ago there was a mod for Grim Fandango that added point & click mouse support to the game as an alternative to the tank controls.

Double Fine integrated a version of this mod into the remastered edition of Grim Fandango, but players of Escape from Monkey Island don't get that luxury and a version of this mod was never ported to EMI.

I am requesting that this feature be integrated directly into ScummVM without the need to install an external mod to allow players of both the original version of Grim Fandango and players of Escape from Monkey Island (mostly EMI) to play these games with point & click mouse controls.

Here was the original mod:

If I remember correctly, there is no automatic way to add this support to EFMI (hotspots must be created manually), nor are we sure that all items that you can interact with in EFMI are even visible in such a way that a hotspot can be added (off screen stuff).

So in terms of supporting this for EFMI, that would require someone willing to spend the effort adding hotspots and icons, with the potential for getting into a dead-end.
