Voice & subtitles in Simon2

Many people, myself included, would like to have both voices and subtitles in Simon2. Since this was not supported in the original interpreter, it will probably never be a feature in ScummVM. Anyway, I've been hacking around with the files and I think I've reached the point where the hack "sort of" works.
It's an ugly hack (just commenting out some lines), but it's the best I could do. Sometimes the subtitles disappear too quickly to be properly read, but it's better than nothing, most of the time it seems to work quite fine. Please understand that this is by no means official and I'm not an expert programmer, so... you know.
To apply the patch you need the sources, of course. After unzipping, run (under linux)
# patch -p0 < simon.cpp # patch -p0 < items.cpp
It should be fine, the changed lines are labelled "ifg".
