    Default The Journeyman Project: Pegasus Prime now runs on ScummVM

    Look! I'm playing it right now...

    It's a bit tricky to extract the data on Windows. You have to use HFSExplorer, select the root directory of each disk, right click and "extract data and resource forks." Accept the renaming requests, and merge the PP Data folders for each disk. That's now the "game data" folder for ScummVM. Be sure to use the latest nightly build, as it hasn't been added to the stable release yet.

    I get a quarter second pause whenever a video plays, so it's a bit annoying when you move forward. So far, that's the only issue I've noticed, and it's not terrible. From here, a GOG release can't be far off (go vote for it!).

    This was the game I wanted to play as a kid, but I never had a Mac. Mac emulation was always kind of unstable. I bought an iMac G3 from a friend a few years ago just so I could finally play it, but running it was problematic. I know there aren't many Journeyman Project fans here, but I'm sure this would be a big announcement for those who are.

    Let's hope they sell the game on GOG soon. I don't want to pay a hundred bucks for the game disc...

    Then pay $30. Looks like he has 5 copies left, or at least 5 still listed. That's who I bought my copy from a few years ago, and I think I paid the same.

    Yowza! This is big news! One less reason for PPC emulation, anyway.

    All right, I think I have a way of extracting the demo.

    Get unar1.3_win.zip from http://code.google.com/p/theunarchiver/ and extract it to a convenient directory.
    Get the Demo for PPC Macintosh from http://thejourneymanproject.com/pres...ime/demos.html and put it in the same directory.
    Open a command prompt window, change to the directory where you downloaded pegprime_demo.sit, and type "unar -k hfv pegprime_demo.sit" .

    This extracts all the data in AppleDouble format, but we're not done yet, since some of them need to be raw resource forks and some of them need to be MacBinary. Fortunately, HFV Explorer can solve that problem.

    Start up HFV Explorer. Go to File -> Format New Volume and create a new volume of 100 MB (or less, if you're pressed for space).
    Using HFV Explorer, copy the PP Data folder from the extracted data and paste it into your newly-created HFV volume.
    Then, copy the PP Data folder out of the HFV volume and into a new folder elsewhere on your hard drive. When prompted, select "Automatic, let the program decide" and then click "OK to All".

    It looks like it works! I'm going to tell the ScummVM boards.

    What's odd is that I like the original Journeyman Project (or at least JP: Turbo) but I never heard of this "Pegasus Prime" thing.

    I just googled it. It's a Mac-only remake huh?
