Right now I'm trying to update the installer to stop the issue where it hangs when iterating through the drives.

If anyone has the problem where the installer just hangs when it loads please contact me - I need to test a fix with you and I cant reproduce the problem myself.

Cool. Will the new installer install the patch.m4b file from the v1.2 CDs?

I cant remember - did you send me a list of all the files on your cds so I could compare? I dont have access to all my email on this computer.

I'm nearly done making changes to the installer but I'm still confused by your version of EMI. As far as I know V1.1 is the latest release and that version is the last patch that Lucasarts released. It would seem that you have some unknown version - not just the game with the patch slipstreamed but a version beyond that.

Just to clarify (and to record it here for anyone else in the future):

You have the English version of EMI
Its an official genuine release
The readme identifies it as v1.2 of EMI (and ingame in the gee-whiz screen)
Your version includes patch.m4b and secrets.m4b


If possible can you send me secrets.m4b, monkey4.exe and the readme? I'm particularly interested in secrets.m4b - your dir listing shows it to be an 8 byte file - but it doesn't exist in my EMI - either patched or unpatched.

This is off topic but I just found this really odd screenshot. Um, how do you get there?

That looks like the section of the dock that was cut out of the main game... the only time Guybrush is ever there in the final thing is at the very beginning, and he's not player-controlled at that point.
I'd have to assume this comes from a pre-release version or from some form of photoshopping. *shrugs*

It is in the demo version, iIrc. They probably removed it, since there is nothing to do there. There are more minor details which feel unfinished in it.

Was the installer ever updated? Is so, did you have any luck with the video?

I've updated the installer with new cd-finding code. I started updating the launcher with the new patches, the higher res windowed mode patch works but the fix for blacking out the background while videos are playing never worked so I was messing with that.

However:
I forgot that the bink movies need to be patched for that black background fix to work and I need to finish updating the list of resolutions.

The "EMI Todo" folder is still sat on my desktop, I will get around to it, I'm just really busy at the moment.

And even in the demo you couldn't sit on the barrel like that early screenshot showed - it was a completely useless environment, which is probably why it was cut. The Docks does have its own music though (which you can't hear in the EMI demo because it's all temp, CMI tunes), and it was shown for a split second in the final game during the in-game cutscene that takes place right after the pre-rendered cutscene of Guybrush and Elaine landing on Melee. And due to the way the camera is positioned, you also get a peak at the docks when you exit out the door of the LUA Bar's interior.

Nah, they were separate hacks. I tried EMI on a different computer recently and the black background fix didn't work on that one. Maybe it's just my computer . In any case, you probably shouldn't bother with that one - just the x2 movie patches.

Sorry about digging up a rather old thread, but I find this VERY interesting.

I have been digging at the meshb/sklb/animb-format for a while now, to try to add something usefull for it to Residual, but I was drawing blanks, the format-text in this thread looks like what I got, only MUCH better and more precise, so, I was wondering, if there was more information that was found, or.... a possibility that bgbennyboy would like to add his findings to residual-tools?

John Doe's gamefileformats-page seems down atm, so Im trying to scavenge as much known information as possible right now.

Whoops. I forgot about this. Apologies for broken promises, the EMI todo folder is STILL sat on my desktop.

Somaen: I'll come on irc and send you all the stuff I have.
