Unhappy LOOM Mac patch

Hello all,

Wonderful to find a place filled to the brim with fellow LucasArts freaks. I found a website where I can download the Mac version of LOOM... my fav game as a thirteen year-old troublemaker. Ah, the moments of peace it gave my troubled mind! It is, however, only 16 colours, which my iMac can't swing. I understand that there is a patch to make it 256 colours somewhere on this blessed site, but I can't seem to find it. Is that true? If so, where might I locate it?



Thanks!

Godzirra

Although I know nothing about what versions of Loom exist for Macs I can't see how there could be a patch. It's probably an enhanced version like the CD version for PCs.

Wait a second... I think you're talking about ScummVM! That would mean you play the PC version on your Mac using this platform-independent tool. You can only do that after buying the game!!!

Nope

Thanks for the quick reply, but no, I'm not talking about ScummVM... although, I hadn't thought of that option. The PC disk is way back in Vancouver, so it's not really an option.

No, what I meant was, I found a place where I can download the Mac version of Loom (you can't even buy it anymore anyway), but it's only 16 colours, and I understand that Mac SCUMM (part of this website chain, I think) has a patch available to make it PPC compatible (and upgrade it to 256 colours somehow).

If not, no biggie, I just got a false lead, then. But this website was mentioned specifically.


Cheers,

Godzirra

Dude, you don't come to LucasArts boards and tell us you're downloading games, whether you can or can't buy them, and then ask for help.
