I'm probably missing the point here but I have to ask the question as to why? SCUMMVM already has it's own front end.

but maybe you have right..
it's a hard work control every game, choose shell comands..and then zip file are very slow to load.

maybe, i can use this idea to add some games that not working very well on ms-dos goldies.

Don't let me stop you if that's what you want to do Seiya, it's just not something I'd bother doing personally. Your MS-DOS Goldies project however is excellent and I'd love to see further expansions to it as there is still so many classic DOS games that can be added.

the problem is that i've download GB and GB of dos games and i never found other than these.
Ok, many games don't works and hope that one day i could recover it.
however, ms-dos goldies is my bigger project and i hope there are some other updates :)

Non-working games in your Goldies collection probably just means a corrupt archive or they require a patch or other support file. To ensure compatibilty, all games should have been unzipped and repacked with the neccesary files and configuration settings. I think this was what .mad was going to do with his original DOS gamebase. It is also what I have been doing with all DOSBase games, which is why it takes such an incredibly long time to release updates. There are very few non-working games that I have come across once you do a little research (just like in the old days when DOS games needed a lot of special attention to get them working on so many different computers)


I hope you have much better luck with your Scumm gamebase.

Just as a side note: Exo has released quite an extensive library of Scumm games and manuals as a torrent. It may give you some addtional manuals and other goodies that you can add, which would make the Scumm gamebase even better. I felt that you were lacking in the 'Extras' in your Goldies gamebase a little.

I'm pretty sure you can still get his collection from Pleasuredome.
