Dreamweb not running on latest dev/stable build 

Just tried both versions, floppy and cd, always show black screen and nothing else. Does anyone know how to fix it?

Firstly, we would need more information. Exactly which development build from buildbot are you using? ie. v1.7.0git-xxxxx .

This is shown on the launcher screen below the ScummVM logo.

Also, which IOS device are you running this on?

This sounds like it could be a screensize issue as Dreamweb starts in 640x480 before dropping to 320x200...

Yes, there should be logging of errors and messages enabled to a log file in $HOME/.scummvm/logs if I read the code correctly... otherwise search around the paths given here to see if you can find the logs directory:
https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/blob/master/README#L1946

If not, I may have to fix the logging function as I'm not sure it was ever tested on IOS...

But there is nothing Sad

code:
User picked target 'dreamweb-cd' (gameid 'dreamweb')...
  Looking for a plugin supporting this gameid... DreamWeb engine
  Starting 'DreamWeb'

Hmm... Either it is crashing out (You would have to link a remote GDB session to your tablet which is heavy magic ie. I don't know how to do this and I don't think our debugging HOWTO covers this)... Though you aren't getting the debug messages as -d 10 or similar isn't passed on command line... as there is no command line. Need to work out a way of passing that parameter for command line less targets ie. Android, IOS etc.

Seems need someone to compile a test build, having that debug options setted up... In any case - is this port supported by anyone officially? Means who we can ask for this.

And did you please try this yourself, if it works for you (as Dreamweb is for free download here on site)?

Well, you would normally compile and debug this yourself if you are capable:
http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Compiling_ScummVM/iPhone
http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Debugging_ScummVM

Apart from that, you could try talking to the IPhone maintainer... who is listed here:
http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/IPhone

And I can't try this myself.. as I do not own any IOS devices.
I am just providing basic user support and bug "triage"...

Yes, unfortunately you're right, I seems not able to compile that things... Need someone more skilled.

Wrote PM to vinterstum, but not sure, if he will ever read it, as did not saw any posts from him recently...

I would suggest that an e-mail is more likely to invoke a response as I don't think he is very active on the forums.

Sigh... A search of the scummvm-devel mailing list archive would show that his e-mail as of his last message is oystein@NOREDMEATgeheb.com (removing the obvious SPAM blocking section). This message was "Re: [Scummvm-devel] Mac OSX Supported Versions" sent on 23/11/12 03:49. I would suggest trying vinterstum@NOREDMEATusers.sourceforge.net as well...
