if you start ScummVM from a command prompt, it should display an explanation

In the old days, before the graphical user interface, using a computer meant typing commands. The computer would interpret the command, and then either do it and print the result, or print an error message, before prompting the user for the next command.

Most operating system still has some sort of command prompt. It's a useful way of automating tasks (a command script can be run without any user intervention), and sometimes there are tasks that are "easier" to express as typed commands.

For instance, suppose I have ripped the music from Monkey Island 1 to WAV files, but it turns out that the files are named track_2.wav, ... track_24.wav, and I want them to be named track1.wav, ..., track23.wav. I could go through the 23 files and rename them manually or, on a Unix system, I could type something like:

code:

for n in `seq 2 24` ; do mv track_$n.wav track$(($n - 1)).wav ; done




Or not... I guess not everyone would think of this as the easier way. Or they may have some completely different way of doing it. Smile

Different operating systems have different command prompts. The FAQ briefly describes how to run ScummVM from a command prompt in Microsoft Windows.

Apparently, in OS X it's called the Terminal. There may be better sources of information about it than that link, but that was one of the first I found. I don't run OS X myself, so I've never tried it.

Did you start ScummVM from the terminal, i.e. type the full file name of ScummVM at the command prompt?

Sorry, I have no idea what the full file name is on OS X, but it's wherever ScummVM is installed. On a Unix system, that could be something like /usr/games/scummvm, but on OS X it may be something completely different.

If you start ScummVM using the Finder, all messages will be written to

/Library/Logs/Console/«UID»/console.log

where «UID» ist your current user’s ID.

You can view this log file through Applications - Utilities - Console.app
