Re: Thousands of games needing testing

You can have both at the same time, but you will indeed need to edit manually the description if you want to be able to differentiate them in the game list. Adding separate detection entries would not be enough to solve this though. And we need unique IDs for each games added to ScummVM. One of the ...

Re: Thousands of games needing testing

As for Space Quest IV.5 its obviously totally up to you to decide and I would fully agree if there was only one version available on the AGS site (since that would probably be the first location where people get the games) but I just looked and they actually have both versions linked. So, I don't k...

Re: Thousands of games needing testing

Thanks. I have now added the detection entries (but changed the title for a few of those to match the names I found in the AGS game database and the AGS forum - for example https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/2384-space-quest-visual-novel/ has "Space Quest Visual Novel" w...

Re: Thousands of games needing testing

Hi again, I just finished adding some of the games from the archive and noticed some more wrong/incomplete game titles. But liked I said, it is currently not possible for me to use one of the mentioned ways to contribute my changes. I can provide a diff file and post it on pastebin or something lik...

Re: Thousands of games needing testing

The winsetup.exe is not needed. The acsetup.cfg file is used when present to get the default settings for the game (such as the default language for the game or the color depth to use). In most cases the game will work properly if you remove it, but this is not guaranteed. So I would recommend keepi...

Re: Thousands of games needing testing

Thanks for the bug reports! :) AGS not appearing on the website compatibility page was an oversight that has now been fixed. I did some changes for the language. Games are no longer detected as English, which should remove confusion when that is incorrect or when multiple languages are available. Fu...

Re: Small text in fullscreen GUI (macOS)

Yes and no. We added HiDPI screen support for ScummVM recently, but there is currently some assumptions that are made on the screen scaling factor that are incorrect. This is something I am planning to look at soon.

Re: Thousands of games needing testing

On further testing, I've found that all of the following crash with this error when I press F12 whenever they are not playing a video. It works at the menu screen and during gameplay. Thank you! Knowing that, this was easy to reproduce, and that will help a lot to fix it. Edit: And this is now fixe...

Re: SDL 1 version still maintained?

It has not been dropped yet, but there are not a lot of developers using it, and not a lot of effort to keep it up to date. But you are welcome to create bug reports for regression, such as if ALT+ENTER no longer works.

Re: Thousands of games needing testing

There seems to be something wrong with the latest version I downloaded, windows-x86-64-master-23d52a14. A-Z keys don't work, and keys that do something, mostly do something wrong. Backspace produces question mark, comma produces capital H, and so on. Dot produces dot though. I assume this is alread...

I have moved Time Gentlemen, Please detection to the commercial game section. SoundClip assert The assert in ...

Re: Thousands of games needing testing

@Raziel would you be able to get a backtrace or bisect to find the commit that introduced this regression?
I looked at the changes we made to the AGS engine in the past week and I don't see any obvious culprit for such a regression.

Re: Thousands of games needing testing

Some texts (like pressing F1 for instructions) looked a bit smudgy, I don't know if that's a settings issue of some kind, but the texts look quite clear when running the game exe without ScummVM. Initially we were always using antialiasing to draw text with TTF fonts. This was changed two days ago ...

Re: AGS games run slow?

We are aware that the AGS engine in ScummVM is slower than the original AGS, and hopefully we can find some ways to speed it up. Most games work fine for me though on a relatively low spec laptop, exceptions being games like The Cat Lady which is indeed painfully slow. Are you using one of the daily...

Re: Thousands of games needing testing

This is fantastic news! Is there a way to tell which game uses which AGS version? Not currently, but it may be useful information, so I'll look into adding a debugger command to give a running game's version. Good idea. The AGS version is actually printed to the terminal/console when you start an A...
