Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/369830/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (369830) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
  2. ScummVM only supports 640x400 mode.
    An additional 640x480 mode is available in DOS by editing the configuration file; this is letterboxed, thus appearing stretched, and should only be used if having issues with 640x400 mode.
