The copy protection, you mean? But that's in the manual and there's nothing ambiguous about it as far as I remember.

This may have been bloody obvious to everybody except me, but did you know that when you're running the game in ScummVM, you can set up a separate path for Manic Mansion? That way you don't need to go to Ed's computer in order to play. ScummVM just treats it as a separate game.

For the Dutch-people: It's for sale for 15 at www.dimplus.nl (Sam n' Max and DOTT on one cd)
Don't know if they ship to other countries though...

O, www.nedgame.com has it too, for 25....

This site looked really misleading. From google search, it seemed as if you could download the game from this site.

People are going to download it for free like me, if they cant find it to buy obviously.
Great game, just as I remembered it, but got two issues with it.

Firstly, is there any way to make it not stretch itself to fill the screen?
and
THere is no sound.
A website here http://www.mcwalter.org/tentacle/xp/, said to download a VMsound, but the download link for it doesnt exist anymore.

Plus
I WANT WANT WANT to buy this pack.
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detai...ogames&n=468642

With this I would be the happiest person alive. But I cant buy it here in the UK.
Anyone know any sites that would sell it in the UK?

Ive played a bit of DOTT and Fate of atlantis, and was blown away, back in 1998?
I cant wait to play sam and max.

Does anyone remember Jazz Jackrabbit?
Is this "abandonware"?
Can I download it anywhere legally first, before I use alternative methods?
As I know its not selling anywhere.

In that case it's clearly google search which is misleading, not Abandonia. It's specifically stated in several places that this game is NOT for download.

By the same reasoning you might as well say people are going to rob banks if they can't find a working cash dispenser. Those "alternative methods", as you choose to term them, are still illegal, you know.

As for your sound issues: have you tried running the game in ScummVM? It worked wonders for me.

Thta whole "robbing banks" thing is a little extreme. SAy the person that patented the shoelace, decided to withdraw it and not let people use the "technology". Then somebody just getting some string and a plastic tubing, and attempting to meld the two together, is trying to break the law. What, should we just sstart making all shoes with velcro?

Plus, robbing that bank would take too much effort on my part.

Anyway, that Scum sorts out the sound and frame/sound synching, but makes the game run in a tiny screen. Also commands such as F1 do not work, so how would I save the game?

I guess I should post in the ScummVM forums, but I guess somebody here will know the solution, having had this program longer than I.

Just copy these files from your CD to a folder and tell ScummVM to look there:

MONSTER.SOU
TENTACLE.000
TENTACLE.001

I think that you have to press F5 to access the menu...

sorry. How do you redirect it to the DOTT folder?

Thanks.

Just to verify, will this make the F1 key work?

No, but they might stop for a moment to think whether shoelaces would really important enough to justify breaking a law. After all it's not like you couldn't live without them. You'd still be free to wear other types of shoes like slippers, sandals or wellies, after all.
Similarly, computer games aren't vital, so it isn't as if you didn't have a choice. So saying you were basically forced to download a game illegally is rather a lame excuse in my opinion.
