I am not sure if there is a bug but I have reported my findings. Please file a bug. The devs are not saying that to be dismissive, far from it. Truth is: complaining on a forum is something that might be forgotten about; Filing a bug is doing your part in making sure the issue isn't going to be for...

Have now completed The Wizard and The Princess game (although I have yet to see the complete congratulations message because the game returns too quickly to the ScummVM main menu). This is on my usual setup of running Windows 64-bit development build ScummVM under Wine on Linux. I have almost comple...

Also, when you run ScummVM, check the following from the main menu : 1. Click on Options followed by the Paths sub-heading. Check if you have the right save path. 2. Click on the game (CoMI) and then Edit Game followed by the Paths sub-heading. Carry out the same check. If either say 'Default', you ...

I don't really have any time to progress my Linux testing or to learn how to compile ScummVM myself because of a recent close family bereavement. At the moment, ScummVM is just a happy distraction for me. To round things off for now, what I know I got running natively on Linux were : - 1.7.0 (from t...

Glad to have been declared a Guru Wizard at Mystery House (using a Windows build). Only one annoyance for me, which I shall report as a possible bug. I used Ctrl+F5 to use the 15 available save slots, which worked well including showing the thumbnails. Except in the tower. Any saves made there seem ...

Help needed with Linux development builds

I am a Windows veteran and a Linux novice. I am trying to get the latest development build running on my Linux Mint 18 machine and need some help. I can get the official release 1.8.0 and 1.8.1 .deb binaries running but can get no further. These are the steps I have taken : 1. Install scummvm_1.8.0-...

I did draft a reply saying that I would re-visit problems that I had had using ScummVM Linux. I intended to load the latest development build and see if I fared any better. Confession time. I now remember why I did not carry on with the Linux version. Being a novice at the time, I was only able to g...

Linux versus Windows

criezy wrote Also I am somewhat interested in your claim that the Linux version does not do as good a job as the Windows version. Are some features missing, some bugs present, or is it just general performances (e.g. cursor lag, some games being slow)? This might not be the thread where to discuss t...

I must confess that I have not understood this thread at all so please may I ask a question. Some time ago I decided I had had enough of Microsoft operating systems on my 64-bit machines and changed all my machines to Linux. However, my experience with ScummVM Linux is that it does not do as good a ...

I have managed to complete Dirty Split and The White Chamber but has anyone completed (or even tried) any of the commercially available Wintermute games on ScummVM?

I got so frustrated with the fact you said that you could get the Feb 13 version working that I deleted the ScummVM program folder from my machine and re-installed the Feb 13 Win 32 version from scratch onto my Win64 machine. And hey presto, it worked! I am sure there is a problem somewhere mixing t...

You misunderstand me - I do not get any error. The version I can download from February 7 runs fine. My problem is that a bug (#7024) was reported closed-fixed on February 11 and I am trying to check it out. Obviously, I can't do this until I get a build made after that date. Like I said, I'll be pa...
