Recently I am completing my collection of legendary adventures. Most of them made LucasArts, so using ScummVM is needed. But in their compatibility page were fm-towns versions of some games. Interested by this fact i made some searchings.

I know that fm-towns verion of Zak McKraken is in 256 colors. It has also a soundtrack, which can be downloaded here: http://s-island.mixnmojo.com/zak.html . If you combine this two things and run on scummvm, you will have Zak McKraken with music. But is this better? I don't know. In troubleshooting section of this forum i had created a topic about sound in fm-towns version http://www.abandonia.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=5353 . thanks for any clues and hints

But what about other games? I know, that there are fm-towns versions of:
Monkey Island 1, 2
Indiana Jones 3, 4 (crusade and atlantis).
Does anybody know exactly what are differences between these versions and original ones? My point is to make clear, short description about those versions. Thanks for cooperation :bye:

There was a version of Ultima 6 for FM Towns with speech! Never seen it myself though.

FM Towns had better specs then most of the PCs of its time, and had an hige adventage, CD Rom. That is one of the reason that those games had voices.

Most of the games I tried had both english and jap version of the game, but games it self had only video and audio improvements. Nothing else that I noticed changed.
