       scidisasm - Disassembles all script resources into .script files

       sciunpack - A tool for unpacking and converting SCI resource data


       FreeSCI  is  a  portable  interpreter  for SCI games, such as the Space
       Quest series (starting with SQ3) or Leisure Suit Larry (2 and sequels).

       This man page describes the tools that  come  with  FreeSCI.  The  main
       executable  (which you're probably interesed in if you want to play SCI
       games) is described in sciv(6).


       The scidisasm program disassembles all script resources in SCI resource
       files in the current directory into .script files.

       It  takes  five  optional  command  line switches: --version prints the
       version number and exists; --help displays a  short  help  message  and
       exists;  --hexdump  hex  dumps  all  script resources; --verbose prints
       additional disassembly information; --opcode-size  prints  opcode  size


       sciunpack  is  a  tool   for  unpacking, printing,  and  converting SCI
       resource data

       Usage: sciunpack [operation] [options] <resource.number>

       Alternatively, the resource type and number can  be  specified  as  two
       seperate options.

       Available resources are: view, pic, script, text, sound, memory, vocab,
       font, cursor, patch,  bitmap,  palette,  cdaudio,  audio,  sync,  sync,
       message, map, heap.

       If * is specified instead of <number>, all resources of given type will
       be unpacked.

       sciunpack supports the following operations:

       --unpack, -U
              This is the default action; it unpacks the specified resource.

       --list, -L
              Lists all available resources.

       --words, -W
              Prints all vocabulary words understood by the parser. See

       --objects, -O
              Outputs the full object hierarchy

       --vocab, -V
              This operation goes through several relevant 'vocab'  resources,
              interprets  their contents, and prints them sequentially. First,
              all selector  (variable/function)  names  are  print,  then  all
              opcodes,  followed  by  the  names  of all kernel functions, and
              finally the class ID/script lookup table.

              Prints the version number.

       --help, -h
              Displays a short help message.

       Also, there are several options available:

       --verbose, -v
              Enables additional output.

       --convert, -c
              Forces sound resources to be converted to General MIDI  on  some
              platforms, and script resources to be dissected.

       --output-file <file>, -o<file>
              Selects output file file.

       --gamedir <dir>, -d<dir>
              Read game resources from dir.

              Forces the SCI header to be written (default).

              Prevents the two SCI header bytes from being.  written

              Sorts in alphabetical order when listing words (-W)

              Sorts by group IDs when listing words (-W)

       As   a  default,  'resource.number'  is  the  output  filename,  unless
       conversion is enabled (-c). With conversion, a few resource  types  are
       treated specially:

       -      sound  resources:  will  be converted to General MIDI, stored in
              <number>.midi (this only works on GNU libc systems)

       -      script   resources:   will   be   dissected   and   stored    in


       The  scriptdump  tool  can  be used to disassemble all selector methods
       into  SCI assembly. It takes no command  line  options  and  reads  the
       resource files from the current directory.


       This  tool  can be used to display  kernel function and selector names.
       It is obsolete.
