Torin's passage crash near the end of the game (Spoilers) 

Warning :This text will contains spoilers.

When I reached the null void (Where lycentia is held)
And used the book on lycentia and tried to remove her collar the game simply crashes and does not let me continue.
I can show the debug errors screen if you want.
I really like Scummvm's achievement : The game was playable from the beginning almost to the end and crashed only once in world 2 when I played a little bit with the scroll handles, so if you fix this bug it will be perfect.
And now for technical details:
In scummvm I tested version 1.0 directly from the game's cd.
After I encountered the crash I installed The game in dosbox and patched it (The game has an issue with the Save games and I didn't encounter it in scummvm) and the game was beatable and didn't crash.
before patching the game (in dos and scummvm): the game reported it was version 1.00
after patching the game : the game reported
it was version devel.
If this issue is fixed Another great game will be beatable in scummvm!

koko200: Thank you for the information. I assume that you used a nightly build? If so, can you please indicate the version of ScummVM you used?

This can be found on the Launcher screen below the ScummVM logo before you get to the games list, Add Game etc.

Apologies I should have checked, whether it was supported by stable or not before I posted, I was just going by this:

I completely miss read this and thought he was trying the game in scummvm 1.0 (and thought there was some sort of support in 1.0), So I assumed it would have been have better supported in 1.9.

Apologies again,

regards.

OK. So this was 1.10.0git3266-g53b0b82e87 (May 10 2017 11:14:05) for the record. (Imgur external links may disappear over time so making sure this is added to forum database).

Excellent!
I downloaded today's build and managed to finish the game with 999 points!
The thing that even more impresses me is that I was able to run and play Rama !!!!
(An sci 3 game from 1996 based on Arthur c Clarke rendezvous with rama book series)
directy from disc 1!

scummvm is on its way to support the entire sci library!

Rama comes on 3 cd's so if I want to play it on
scummvm should I Copy and merge the contents of all of the
3 cd's into one folder ?

Rama can be played in both dos and windows (the Two versions are included in the cd's) :

The dos version is installable and playable within DosBox
And there is A special DosBox installer for the game which can be found in this site

[url]
www.sierrahelp.com
[/url]

together with the installer and many more things for sierra games.

If you want to install the windows version on a modern system a special install can be found in this site
[url]
https://www.squirtthecat.com/
[/url]
(The game's windows executable if a 32 windows executable so the game will also run on a 64 bit system).

The next game I would like to see if it can be played on scummvm is Lighthouse: the dark being.
(I already ordered my copy from ebay but there is
an explicable delay in the post office).
