Not quite :D The other game files were hidden as well. Only making DIG.LA0 unhidden is enough to play the game.

I looked quickly at the code and it does indeed look like the detection for the DOS version uses the DIG.LA0 file (which I confirmed by copying that file alone from my DOS version of the game into a new directory and the game is correctly detected in that directory). Do I understand correctly, the ...

The scumm engines is using its own custom detection code, so you won't get those debug messages for SCUMM games I believe (unless a similar message is used in the detection code for those). As for the game not being detected, if you don't get the message about having an unknown version of the game,...

HI all, I'm trying to play "The Dig", but ScummVM can't find it. At first I tried with version 1.9.0.2, then with the current 2.0.0, but no success. The game directory contains the files listed here . I tried to check the MD5 sums using the explanation here , but couldn't get any messages. I only go...
