SCI01 Extensions

SCI01 differs only in very few respects: It uses different compression algorithms (all of which are supported since FreeSCI 0.2.1), and a different type of sound resources, which may contain digitized sound effects (PCM data). The basic music data, however, still resembles MIDI data.

Also, scripts are split into two parts when loaded: A dynamic part, which resides in the heap as before, and a static part, which is stored externally to conserve heap space. [1]


[1] The background for this is that heap space started running out in Quest for Glory 2. In order to compensate for this, changes were made to both the script library and the interpreter.
