Source Code Repositories Added for All Apps

I’ve made the Mercurial source code repositories for my old SCUMM tools public, they’ve been published on BitBucket. I’ve also added links to the repositories on each app’s info page. Hopefully, this will make it easier for people to fork their own versions of the code and make changes.

DRO Trimmer now available on BitBucket

I have set up a project for DRO Trimmer on BitBucket. This should make it easier for people to get the source code, may encourage forks & modifications, and also provides issue tracking and a wiki (which I’ll eventually write to). https://bitbucket.org/jestar_jokin/dro-trimmer/ (If you know GitHub, this is the same sort of thing, but it […]
