Good news over on the ScummVM website ( http://www.scummvm.org ). It seems they’ve started incorporating Sierra games, starting with the Goblins series. Now, I could be wrong, but I’m thinking that the Goblins games made use of Coktel Vision’s own proprietary engine, while Woodruff used the then newest version of Sierra’s SCI. They do mention Woodruff by name, so I imagine if they could get that working in ScummVM, then surely all of the other SCI games won’t be far behind.
Anyway, I believe this is great news. If it works, it certainly means an end to hassle when trying to get the classics to run on 2000, XP and whatever’s coming.
