Description

I made a number of changes that I thought were helpful - maybe other people might agree.

Some minor ones eliminate warnings and make the Visual Studio project release build more optimized.

One significant one is the addition of a command- line scaling option. You can specify on the command line 1, 2, or 3x scaling. (Before, it was hard-coded at 2). This can be useful for both windowed and fullscreen modes.

Another is a command-line option to supress the subtitles. This is the behavior I remember from the CD version of Day of the Tentacle, since the lines are all spoken anyway.

I also cleaned up the command line a little. Usage is printed if no arguments are specified. Debug mode is a command-line option. The version info will print info about the platform build if it is available.

I think that might be about it.

I included a number of diffs, which might be less convinient than one file - I'll try to make one patch file soon.

Please write if you have any comments...

Um, sounds like a nice set of patches... but they arn't attached to this request :)

I'm trying to update to the current version, but I've got a snag... It seems that the new changes to supress warnings actually *generate* some new (and valid) warnings under MSVC, although it could be different changes... I've also fixed these, but now it won't patch smoothly - probably changed again while I was working.

Anyway, let me know if my patch is failing in any way.
