'The Entertainment Pack' released only in the UK the early part of year.

It included updated versions of Full Throttle and Sam & Max Hit the Road. They now run on XP, have a filter like the Mac ports and have a ratio corrector thingy.

Grim Fandango & The Dig are also in the pack but not updated.

Not sure if Lucasarts will release them in th US.

YES YES I can't wait to be playing those classic games again on my pc as well as Day of the Tentacle and Sam & Max. I've been trying to get sound on them for ages!!!
Well done Lucas Arts

1) Go to http://www.scummvm.org

2) Select DOWNLOADS from the menu on the left

3) Scroll down to "Windows Installer" (presumably you have Windows?) and select it

4) Download the file

5) Feel a bit silly for having to ask

The Dig wasn't updated as such, but you now no longer have to go through installation and sound setup (which alwasy caused me problems) in order to play it, it's just a simple put CD in computer and play job, like the rest apart from grim for obvious reasons.

It was Go!Zilla that was making it a problem for me
