Gibush: Wait, so when I play eDuke it's not actually the same engine at all as Duke Nukem 3D?

Is the gameplay literally the exact same, because I'm kind of a purist, and want to play the original... except with higher res and better mouselook.
I used eDuke32 and it really is just like the original except for better mouselook. Any other changes are optional.

Except that for me the end-of-chapter text story screens were missing. I had to look at Youtube for those.

Atedos: Oh... That's quite a reason (no sarcasm).
I wouldn't want to miss them, even if they are 15 (or so) seconds long.

Waltorious: The video cutscenes are showing, but the following text screens which explain the next part of the story are not showing. Or at least they weren't... while I was playing a new verison of eDuke32 came out, but I didn't upgrade because the new version couldn't see my savegames. So I haven't tested this with the latest version of eDuke32.
I think that depends on which renderer you're using... I think they show up only if you're using software 8-bit... any of the new renderers cause those scenes to either be skipped or just appear blank.

If this can be confirmed then possibly a message needs to be sent to the eDuke32 developer(s) to see if they can fix it.

korell: Do we have SCUMMVM games here on GOG? Being as I've not downloaded and installed games like BASS, Simon the Sorcerer, etc, I don't know whether they are DOSBox games or SCUMMVM games.

Also, isn't SCUMMVM just emulating the games so that they run as the original intended?

Atedos: BASS here on GOG uses ScummVM - this I can say for sure.
Don't know about other adventure games, but wiki states about "some games" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Old_Games#History).
ScummVM is a rewrite of the engine in exactly the same way eduke is. It is not an emulator.
