#8319 closed patch


Reported by: SF/jonner Owned by: sev-
Priority: normal Component: Documentation
Keywords: Cc:


I'm not certain if this is the best place to submit
this. I have written a rough HOWTO for playing Mac
CD-ROM games on Win32, since it requires a couple of
different tools and several steps. People are always
asking about this in the forums. I think it would be
helpful if there were a link to my HOWTO from the FAQ
or documentation. Even better would be for it to be
incorporated into one of those.

Hmm... Once we decided to consider this to be included to
our site, the HOWTO is gone.

afaik ScummVM now supports native mac datafiles, so
running rescumm isn't needed anymore. This reduces the
howto merely to 'get hfvexplorer, copy game data to hd'

Certainly, there is now much less need to rescumm a Mac
game, but some people may still want to compress the sound or
something, so the HOWTO may still be useful to some.

Again, I'm not sure if this is the best place to discuss
this, but it does relate to the HOWTO I submitted before. In
the forums, someone was trying to use a Mac game on Windows
and wasn't able to find the HFVExplorer installer. The
HFVExplorer home and installer seem to have fallen off the
web. It would probably be a good idea to mirror it on the
ScummVM site and modify the HOWTO accordingly. I have the
installer on my web server for now:
