SCUMM/Versions

add Engine Version, add C64/NES stuff
The SCUMM language is a [[LucasArts]] in-house standard. The format was never designed to be public and so would change unpredictably from game to game to suit the task at hand. ThereforTherefore, many different '''SCUMM Versions''' exist today. The first LucasArts adventure games used an unknown format that is now lost with time. We will ignore it because it wasn't really SCUMM as we know it know, wasn't very good, anyway, and only worked on the Commodore 64. The first PC versions started with V2 and a variation of the V1 format.
With Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, LucasArts developed a modular file format based loosely on the standard IFF format. This was used several times in various forms until The Secret of Monkey Island, where the SCUMM engine and file format was redesigned from scratch. The new format was used from then on, and vestiges of it are still visible in the latest LucasArts games such as [[Grim Fandango]].
The information presented here is based on [http://scumm.mixnmojo.com/?page=games http://scumm.mixnmojo.com/?page=games], [http://www.scummvm.org/docs/specs/introduction.php http://www.scummvm.org/docs/specs/introduction.php] and on [http://scumm.mixnmojo.com/?page=specs&file=scuminfo.txt http://scumm.mixnmojo.com/?page=specs&file=scuminfo.txt].
 
The Program version is simply a string found within the SCUMM interpreters included with each game.
 
The Engine version, however, indicates which overall SCUMM revision was used in the game, indicating the format of the data files as well as any special technology used (such as iMuse and INSANE).
