#13618 new feature request

SCUMM: No start splash screen nor LFG-logo on NES MANIAC

The NES version of Maniac Mansion does neither show the splash screen at the start nor the Lucasfilm Games logo, before cutting to the scene 20 years ago. Since those are clearly a part of the game, it's puzzling why they are skipped. Are they for some reason not part of the LFL data?

The wiki mentions this (

[TODO:] Somehow add static MM logo and LucasArts logo (needs to be done before engine initializes)

so I guess that restoring it (as in the original) would require a bit of work.

While this seems "clearly" a part of the game, it is "clearly" :-) something originally done outside the SCUMM engine, and it would require some hackery to emulate the behavior you mentioned.

Changing to "feature request".
