@Ancalimon

Curse of Monkey Island required at least a Pentium @ 90Mhz when it was released, not so easy to match with 1985 hardware (even when you add an 060 accelerator!).

Graffiti support would have helped (Indivision Mrk2) but that doesn't look like it will ever happen now

I did a little experiment once with a 'resolution down-grader' using a 640x240 PAL screen. It didn't look too bad actually and was a bit faster than a real 640x480 screen.

Still slow on real hardware unfortunately


This how it currently runs on my 060 -> [ Show youtube player ]
