Yes, but where is the save path? Sorry for asking such basic things, but I'm no geek, no nerd, just a game lover and I don't know where to put the file... Actually, I did a bit of search myself. I put the file into AppData/Roaming/ScummVM and renamed it "qfg2_wizard". The game still doesn't "see" it...

Trying "Quest for Glory" (part 3) on Scumm VM

Parts 3 and 4 of "Quest for Glory" are very buggy. Some people who have played it on DOSBox may recognize a few bugs: not being able to "formally" offer help to Harami, Laibon getting annoyed without reason and saying "So, friend of Rakeesh, what have you come here for?", the "They don't seem to be ...

Discworld - supported, but not on the list?

I read that both parts of "Discworld" are supported by Scumm VM. However, I can't find them on the list when I try to setup a profile (Scumm VM v. 2.0 + D-Fend Reloaded). Are the entries for both games under some unobvious title - for example, company name or engine name (as in case of entries label...

Pajama Sam 1 - no game saving at all?

The problem is that unlike in Pajama Sam 2 and 3, where you can choose gameplay variants, assignment of lost objects to locations in Pajama Sam 1 is entirely random. So, in order to have some level of control over which variant I get, I wanted to create saves at the very start of the game and name t...

Technical problems with Pajama Sam again

Sorry to just drop by asking, but perhaps somebody has any idea why this problem appears and how to solve it... On my old computer I got the same puzzle combinations in all Pajama Sam games when playing through Scumm VM + D-Fend Reloaded. I didn't have that problem in any other Humongous Entertainme...

Can screenshots be saved as something other than bitmaps?

I have just a little question. I don't like bitmaps. 1. They are huge. Usually saving the same screenshot as PNG compresses the file... some 60-70% in case of newer games with more sophisticated graphics ("The Dig", for example) and more than 90%, if I remember well, in case of older games, especial...

Btw - a question to those who know the game well: any advice on getting a lot of bonus levels? Sometimes the UFO that triggers bonus levels doesn't appear at all, sometimes - now this is nasty - right when Pep is popping the last balloon and can no longer go back up and hit the UFO... Is there any r...

OK, but what should I do about it?
EDIT: OK, I managed to solve the problem by deleting the extra (non-screenshot) files in the game's "Capture" folder - players.bal etc.

Profile ---> Add manually --> Add Scumm VM profile
Actually all profiles added this way don't work completely OK - when I just click them, the program says it can't find them and I have to "show them to the program" by clicking the location. But then it works.

Putt Putt and Pep's Balloon-O-Rama - first-time bug

I have completed the game before. I run it via Scumm VM + D-Fend Reloaded and I prefer it this way. A few weeks ago I downloaded the new version of Scumm VM and this is the first time I tried to replay the game since the download. And I can't play it. I et to the menu and whatever I press, some bug ...

I don't, ugh, have a CD. I, ugh, made some changes and now I'm away to another bug. Now I no longer know which file should I use to run the game, what should I do about resource.cfg, but I can't run the game - a completely different bug appears. Perhaps you know the solution? I read that the paths i...

Space Quest 6 - game crashes

I realise Space Quest 6 is not supported by Scumm VM anyway, but perhaps someone will be able to help me... I'm having a lot of bugs and such problems with Space Quest 6 and I would really love to complete this game. Technical specifications: I use a relatively old laptop with Windows 7. I play all ...

Just letting you know that for me games were very important in learning - at least in case of English. Nothing to do with Scumm VM - at that point I just used plain DOS, no emulators required and Scumm VM didn't even exist at that point. Timeline with some funny stuff (the numbers are my age): 5 (ye...
