Today the dark and mysterious (Le) frak released one of his offsprings into this sawy river of x86 posts and endless trolling.

To play the dark skeleton from the lucas gang you will need the Datafiles (approx 1.2 GB) and it should be available in shops still (or ebay etc).

What is Residual?
Residual is a ScummVM ( sub-project to play LucasArts' LUA-based 3D adventures, such as Grim Fandango. Residual is an OpenGL program, and requires a 3D card with working OpenGL support for optimum playability.

A software renderer is also included for machines without hardware OpenGL.

The main ScummVM program can run LucasArts 2D SCUMM adventures (among others). Residual is named such as it aims to do the same for the residual (remaining) games. It is also a word pun, as the engine used in these LUA-based adventure is called GrimE (as opposed to SCUMM). Grime is a type of residue.

What games does it support?
Residual is a fairly new project and slow developing project, and is still very much considered alpha. Currently it contains initial support for Grim Fandango.

It is possible, but far from promised, that we can support the other LucasArts LUA-based title 'Escape from Monkey Island' in the distant future.


AmigaOS4: Hardware rendering & Fullscreen busted...for now.

first thing to do is edit the residualrc file and adjust the datapath, after that it's just a matter of doubleclicking the supplied residual icon.

good luck.
