As far as I can see, this takes the SDL default which I think is ungrabbed for Windowed and grabbed for Fullscreen: https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/blob/master/backends/platform/sdl/sdl-window.cpp#L33 On my Linux setup (Ubuntu MATE 17.04), it's ungrabbed in fullscreen too, not sure if it's norma...

Oh, ok, thanks. I didn't realize the datafiles list also covered dev versions.

Leisure Suit Larry 6 Hires?

Hello, I'm trying to add LSL6 (hires version) to ScummVM but it says it can't find the game data. The lowres version works fine. I've found other topics saying that the hires version is not supported by ScummVM but they're years old and the wiki / datafiles lists files for it. So, is it still unsupp...

Some of the hotkeys seem to work (e.g. ctrl + F5 for the menu), don't know why they didn't the other day. Alt + Enter doesn't switch to fullscreen, though.

Dreamweb resolution and fullscreen

Hi, It's been a while since I haven't used ScummVM and I'd like to play DreamWeb with it. The thing is that a) my desktop/screen native resolution is 1920 x 1080 and my screen does not seem to handle small resolutions like 640 x 480; b) DreamWeb switches resolutions when launching (text in 640 x 480...

Well, I found out how to temporally fix the problem. I installed libsdl-all (so that every sound output engine is available to SDL apps: the Ubuntu package is libsdl1.2debian-all). To run ScummVM, I have to set SDL_AUDIODRIVER as "pulse" so that it uses PulseAudio (in a terminal, type export SDL_AUD...

Hello, I have the same problem and although installing libsdl-pulseaudio fixes it, I don't wan't to, as other SDL apps rely on libsdl-alsa (installing libsdl-pulseaudio removes it, installing libsdl-all has the same problem than with libsdl-alsa although it should incorporate support for PulseAudio)...

I think there were one or two patches that were released for the game. You might want to try them. Also, you can start the compatibility mode of XP (display the Properties dialog of the game's executable, go to the compatibility tab and try options like run in Windows 98 mode, 256 colors, screen res...

Which version of ScummVM do you use and on which platform ?

COMI is supposed to be fully completable with no problems (I did it myself). Maybe some graphical glitches, but no crashes like the ones you describe.

Are you sure your files were copied from the CD with no errors ?

It seems that all they sell in their shop is illegal, not only the ScummVM games DVD.

As said above, you should file a bug report describing the problem.
