Is there any documentation of which files are needed for Lighthouse and Rama? I have both games sitting here, but it seems the files on the disc are modified during an install. And sometimes they have the same name but different file sizes. edit: I may have gotten them both running. No errors in the...

If you look at your stats at night, then the text is purple instead of red. This is the normal behavior of the game, but the OP thinks it looks ugly & wants it changed in ScummVM. It's not a bug, as this is how the original game showed it. Your so quick to shoot him down, and you aren't even taking...

I have Full Pipe in my steam library. I suppose I got it before it disappeared.

Do I understand correctly that the steam version is not supported?

Also, if the game has no voices and no text, then what exactly is being "localized"? The menus?

This is different compared to pre 1.0.0 release I suppose. Back then, even with games that had a shared engine, only fully stable games were detected in the "main" releases. I always had to download an SVN version to even try to detect anything that was not fully supported. It doesn't bother me eith...

There were plenty more beyond just Dragonsphere that I thought weren't supported yet (at least, they've never been announced in the main release threads). I can do a scan and list out various titles if that is helpful. edit (and I believe these are all different engines): Hi-Res Adventure #6 - The D...

ScummVM full release detecting unsupported games

I'm not sure if this was a conscious decision or not, but in the past the full release versions did not detect games that were typically only detectable with the SVN version. I have a few games sitting around that have WIP engines, and occasionally I scan them just to see if they play any differentl...

It appears the disk images require specific naming to be detected by ScummVM. Is this documented anywhere? I don't see any of these three games listed on the games data files page.

Game data file's entry please =) Seems to work by just dumping the CD directly, but I'm not sure if the FONTS folder, for example, is required.

I was going over the required data files this morning and realized it asks for many files I don't have in my copy (CD re-release). For example, I do not have any of the following files: sample.* *.dig *.mdi *.vgs This leads me to believe I have a different version. For the record, this is after inst...

Well, I've been around a lot longer than just 2008, but that's when this name dates me. And in that time I could have made a fortune if I could have placed a bet on the general response a user would receive (specifically users who are new to the forums) when they asked if X game would be supported. ...

Good job guys. I was afraid the old timers wouldn't respond with enough sarcasm and disgust at a newbs attempt to ask about a game they enjoyed and would like to play again.

I'd hate to see the scummvm forums ever come across as welcoming or helpful. Keep up the good work!
