Quick & Easy week ends, utilities exist 02 Aug, 2004, 14:03 / 0 comments

Over at the Quick & Easy site, Benny has finished up his maniacal week of utility releases. Among the tools released include new launcher utilities for Curse of Monkey Island, Escape from Monkey Island, and Grim Fandango, which ajust your DirectX settings, let you run the games in different video modes, and automatically patch them for you.

Benny also released new and updated versions of crazier stuff for people who really like to tinker and dig down into the resource files of the old SCUMM games. The complete list of utilities (html lifted from the Scumm Bar) are:

Day 1: EMI Launcher 1.0
Day 2: EMI Background Viewer 1.1
Day 3: Resource File Creator/Dumper 1.1
Day 4: Grim Fandango Launcher 1.0
Day 5: Index File Reader 1.2
Day 6: CMI Launcher 2.0
Day 7: ScummVM Q&E 1.3.6

Benny promises a larger update to ScummVM Quick & Easy is in the works and will be released... sometime. For now, visit the Quick & Easy utilities site for more information about the new programs. They're all really handy so don't do something rash and lazy like not checking them out.
