ToDo/Sierra Game Versions

From SCI Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The list is sorted on interpreter version.

 

Introduction

This only deals with PC versions of the games. Based on this document. PASSIGAR also has a very good list of almost all known Sierra game versions.

SCI games were originally ported to:

Platform SCI0/SCI01 SCI1/SCI1.1 SCI32
IBM PC Yes* 286+ 386+
Apple Macintosh Yes Yes Yes
Atari ST Yes No No
Commodore AMIGA Yes Yes No
Fujitsu FM-Towns No Yes No
NEC PC-9801 Yes Yes No

* Including PCjr & Tandy

This table will show information about translations/international versions:

Interpreter Foreign Version Language Known Suspect Notes
SCI0 None None None No unicode support
SCI01 Bilingual Fr/Ger Jap Converted SCI01 games
SCI1 Bilingual Fr/Ger/It/Sp None
SCI11 Standalone Fr/Ger/It/Sp/Pt Jap Only RESOURCE.MSG differs
SCI32 Standalone Fr/Ger/It/Sp/Pt Jap Sometimes subtitles only

There are no real SCI0 translations as the SCI0 interpreter did not include diacritical characters like accent grave, acute accent, umlaut, etc. The SCI0 games that are translated are converted to the hybrid SCI01.

All the SCI0(1) games are released on both 3.5" & 5.25" disks, except the 1988 Christmas Card, Astro Chicken & Fun Seeker's Guide, which of course were public domain.

All the games listed are disk versions unless noted otherwise.

SCI1 games were released as two versions: 16 color EGA and 256 color VGA versions. The 16 color versions are a lot "uglier" and also smaller in size, compared to their 256 color counterparts. This was done for people with CGA/EGA/TANDY video cards and a low-memory setup. SCI11 ended this tradition by adding a EGA graphics driver.

SCI2, SCI2.1, and SCI3 collectively are often referred to as SCI32 since the released original interpreters were 32-bit executables.

SCI2.1 (early)

These were versions between SCI2 and SCI21. They used a modified SCI2 kernel table. Most of these games maintain the "old school" Sierra graphics. Robot videos were firstly introduced here, in the DOS version of KQ7. VMD videos were not available.

SCI2.1 (middle)

These include the finalized kernel function table, also used in SCI3 games. VMD videos were introduced here, and a more heavy usage of robot videos. These games have the "new age" (cartoonish or 3D pre-rendered graphics with actors).

SCI2.1 (late)

These are mainly SCI21 game demos of SCI3 games and exhibit behavior where strings and arrays are mixed together (they were cleanly separated in earlier versions).

* The version string contains the text: "No version number", it's the same interpreter with both of the games.
** x.yyy.yyy is clearly a standard value, so these game do have different interpreters. The games which share the same interpreter are grouped by separating different versions with a blank line.
*** Has some aspect(s) of the SCI1 interpreter.

 

Not SCI

  • Shivers Two (game and demo): Does not contain SCI scripts, the room logic has been rewritten in native code placed in DLL files
  • Leisure Suit Larry 6 (demo): It's a collection of PCX screenshots played with an external player
  • Space Quest V (demo): Uses the Dynamix DGDS engine
  • Betrayal in Antara: It has SCI resources for the 2D parts (e.g. inside buildings), but it has its own modified SCI script system, plus a 3D engine
    • Some of Antara's "ETC" resources are really Doom PWAD files.

 

Possible Entries

The following games are likely/known to exist:

 

SCI0

 

SCI1

 

SCI11

 

SCI32

  • Many localized versions

 

Unknown

 

Exclusions

These games are not AGI or SCI (but are related to Sierra):

 

Revolution Software

Other Genre Sierra Games

Most of these titles often have the usual file names (RESOURCE, etc.) but they do not use the AGI/SCI interpreter.

 

Early Sierra CD Titles

Same as disk version.

 

Post-1997 Sierra Games

After 1997, the SCI engine (and pretty much the adventure genre in general) was abandoned.

 

Other SCI Games

  • Most Russian Translations
  • Every Chinese Translation
  • Every SCI0 Translation
  • Certain SCI1+ translations

Most (all?) of these are all hacks. It is unknown about later (SCI32) Russian ones, as some say they were indeed translated and sold officially.
