#7294 closed feature request (fixed)
Amiga palette in PC EGA versions
|Reported by:||SF/logicdeluxe||Owned by:||Kirben|
I noticed some sort of behavior, I think it is not intended that way. When I run the PC version of MM for example with ScummVM it plays just fine with PC junior sounds. I even can pop up the f5 menu and activate the Amiga palette option in the 'setup' menu, and the game continues with the Amiga palette. But if I add 'amiga=true' in the scummvm.ini the game plays without any sounds. The same thing with the '-a' command line. Please make that work, since I like that palette more than the original EGA! It makes sense to support this, otherwise that on-the-fly palette change feature would be a rather useless thing (Which certainly is in those 32 color Amiga games).

Ooops just had to reverse part of my last change, didn't test enough first. Was causing indy3ega/loom PC verisons to try to use Amiga sound sometimes when Amiga option was enabled. Should work fine for Maniac Mansion and Zak McKracken at least though.

Well, the "-a" options is no longer so the behavior I described in my opening post is a bit outdated. But again to the actual topic of selecting the palette of preference rather than platform depended, I have some other ideas how it could be done. What about a "--palette=" switch with the possible parameters "ega", "amiga" and "c64" or something like that, which just uses one of the alternate palettes, but handles the games as specified with "--platform=" in other aspects? When "--palette=" is omitted the platform default's palette should be used of course. As seen in the forum, I am not alone with that wish.

This could potentially be added as another option to the new "--render-mode" switch/config option.

I added Amiga option for 16 color PC games.

This was due to the Amiga option been used to disable sound in the earlier games in the past. I have made this possible again, since we can now check the sound format been used when the Amiga option is enabled.
