Where do I get Sam & Max: Hit the Road

Where do I find this game?

Anyway can I play that game on today's computer running Vista?

Any other old school adventure game recommendations will be helpful too. Thank you.

  • @Trica said: I also had the same problem, first. But got it worked out eventually. I think I had to click with both mouse buttons at the same time, need to re-check that sometime.

    Yeah, double clicking both mouse buttons does the trick, thanks. Really not as obvious obvious as it should be, and it doesn't help that the spinning makes me feel nauseous. :rolleyes:

    You can definitely find copies of it in the UK though, I just got mine a few days ago, brand new and sealed. And it is the modified version that runs right off the disc, you don't need to mess around with ScummVM or anything.

  • there are many many versions.. so watcho... what part of the world you live in ryte123?

    modified version that runs without scummvm? must be the re release on dosbox back emu? :P

    i just run scummvm for ALL those games.. just runs better under it.. screw compatibility when there is such a great tool..

  • I bought it in Wilkinsons (UK) of all places the other week for £5 for and it says its vista compatible. I cant vouch for that since I have XP but it runs without scumm straight off the disc. I had to have it though since my original game cd is so scratched the music doesnt work

  • It is Vista compatible, and Windows 7 compatible. Although for me in Windows 7 the disk loaded it up in wmp, as theres some music files in the disk, instead of autoplaying. Consequently, if that happens to you, all you need to do is go into the disk, and click on the Sam & Max Application and it'll launch the game.

    Yeah, I was a little worried they'd just sent me a soundtrack CD at first.

    Anyway, if you really can't get a hold of the disc version, I'm sure it'll be up on Steam sooner or later, and even maybe things like XBLA. Unlike Monkey Island, it wouldn't really need as much work. The graphics are fine and I think they proved there's a big audiance for these type of games.

  • I've ran it a few times on Vista , but using ScummVM. Works like a charm. Not sure about the new cdrom or what others here are talking about , but the original vesion ran in DOS4GW and you have to use either ScummVM or Dosbox.

  • Whether any old DOS stuff will work in Vista may depend on the version of Vista. The 64 bit version breaks some compatibility.
    But...
    As already pointed out, there is no need to even bother testing it out. DosBox and/or ScummVM are your friends.

  • Maybe since LucasArts is releasing games on Virtual Console, maybe they can team up with TellTale, and make Sam & Max Hit the Road: Special Edition for XBox Live Arcade and WiiWare!

  • You can vote in the gog.com wishlist for Sam & Max Hit the Road :

  • The important thing to know about getting or buying that game is that there is a version without voices and one with voices. Be careful what you're getting.
