Atari ST Extra [011] Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes 1 DOS/CD Intro in ScummVM CT60 Falcon Roland MT32

Here is the first Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes running in ScummVM/FreeMiNT on a CT60-equipped Atari Falcon connected to a Roland MT-32.

The intro runs decently well; the biggest issue seems to be the Electronic Arts animation at the start.  Otherwise the rest of the intro seems to perform OK.  I am sure on a faster CT60, things would improve as well.  Overall, I would think the game is playable, and maybe I will get to the point of playing through it some day...

For the brave, I will provide the binary that was used to capture the title in this video.  This binary was tested only under FreeMiNT, on an ext2 filesystem, compiled for the m68000 target, and absolutely every library and engine that was not needed was stripped out when configuring the build.  Only SHERLOCK games are supported.  No support will be provided for this build, and I do not know if it can even be used to complete a game yet!  Download here.

This video was captured on May 20, 2020.

This capture was played on an Atari Falcon equipped with a CT60 clocked at 66 Mhz and a SuperVidel
with the DVI and audio output being captured by a Startech USB3HDCAP.

Video was edited with Shotcut.
