Lighthouse: Problem on Mac 

Hello all,

tried to install and play Lighthouse. At the start this German message appears:
Fehlende oder defekte Spiel-Ressourcen wurden erkannt. Einige Spielfunktionen funktionieren
möglicherweise nicht korrekt. Bitte überprüfen Sie die Konsole auf weitere Informationen und stellen Sie
sicher, dass Ihre Spieldateien korrekt sind.“


My translation:
Missing or damaged resource files are detected. Some functions may not work correctly. Please check up the "Konsole" (?) on further information and make sure that your game files are correct.

The game correctly at first, but I cannot leave the first room. Clicking onto the opened door has no effect.

What went wrong?

Best regards
Martin

(the preview function in this form doesn’t work)

I'm not familiar with the SCI game engine - or the Mac, for that matter - but there seem to be a number of cases that produces this error message. At least some of them should print a message if you're running ScummVM from a command prompt. That could give further clues to what goes wrong in this particular case.

It doesn't for me either. Odd, it used to. (By the way, from what I recall the forum signatures were disabled years ago because of frequent abuse by spammers, so it's normal that they don't work.)

I can confirm this message with German version of Lighthouse.
But the game is full playable (screenshots on bug tracker)

Missing or corrupt game resources have been detected. Some game features may not work properly. Please check the console for more information, and verify that your game files are valid.

from console:

Thanks for your answers!

Trying to start the game from Terminal produces this message:

MM-MBP:~ martin$ /Applications/ScummVM/ScummVM.app -p/Applications/ScummVM/Lighthouse lighthouse
-bash: /Applications/ScummVM/ScummVM.app: is a directory

Why „is a directory“??? ScummVM.app ist definitely an application!

Is this the correct path to the game folder?
With me on Debian no problem (Games is a separate partition):

code:
scummvm -p/Games/ScummVM/Lighthouse lighthouse
/usr/games/scummvm -p/Games/ScummVM/Lighthouse lighthouse



Is it normal for Mac to save the games under "Application"?

ScummVM.app is actually something called an application bundle. It is presented as an application to the user, but is actually a directory that contains the executable and some other files. The path to the executable should be (I am writing this from memory, so may be slightly wrong):
code:
/Applications/ScummVM/ScummVM.app/Contents/MacOS/scummvm

Yes, of course Smile

Have no idea but I guess it is so …

(This forum ist quite strange. Marking text and then clicking onto „Quote“ places the tags at the end of the entire text …)

But this applies to all Apple applications!?!

OK, this works. And here is the output (in German – please let me know if you need a translation):

This is probably important: Copying the files from the 2 (!) CDs I tried to follow the instructions given in the Wiki. Therefore I had to rename the RESOURCE.AUD from each CD to RESAUD.00<cdnumber>, to match the corresponding RESSCI.00<cdnumber> file that exists on each CD. I did so.
Furthermore I had to rename the RESOURCE.SFX from each CD to RESSFX.00<cdnumber> – but there was no RESOURCE.SFX!
