Leisure Suit Larry 6 Mac & ScummVM 1.8.0 source

Post by michaelklaube »

Hello Forum Members,

I tried the above and found out that LSL 6 Mac is neither detected nor supported!

My question: why isn't it supported while the DOS version is?

Best Regards,

Michael

The LSL games are supported by the SCI engine:
http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/SCI

The detection tables have no Mac specific entries for LSL6, hence why this is not detected:
https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/blob ... n_tables.h

I would suggest that few people have the Mac versions of the game and thus detection entries have not been submitted.

If you can indicate exactly which version you have and supply a file listing of the datafiles along with sufficient MD5sums, then a detection entry can be added to allow detection:

I have English Mac versions of Leisure Suit Larry 6 and 7, but I didn't think the SCI engine had progressed far enough that they were interesting yet. It's too late at night for me to look any closer right now, but if someone reminds me (and maybe gives me a hand) I should be able to check later.

Thanks for the provided info.

I thought it's a bug but when too less people actually have a copy (but me and eriktorbjorn) than it is probably not needed.

Perhaps later I'll try to get the needed info out of my terminal, but don't rely on me.

Nevertheless have a nice day!

Again, thanks :lol:

Why is the Mac version still not detected in ScummVM 2.0 ?

As I said before, detection md5sums are required to start with...

The Folder content is this:

1514
1516
Data1
Data2
Data3
Data4
Data5
Shape Up or Slip Out!
Voices

with 1514, 1516 and the Voices folder contents being AIFF files.
1516 is the intro music.
The Voices folder is more than 300 MB big and contains hundreds of AIFF files.
I assume all the md5 sums are needed so i would have to write a bash script to generate them into a text file.
Or are only the md5 sums for the DataN files needed and the audio files could be parsed when importing the game folder?
I don't know.

You should be able to c&p the needed information to a text file on trying to run your MAC version.

There should be a window popping up with all the gathered information needed within scummvm

e.g. load scummvm, try to add the game and the window should pop

Thanks! I did that - ScummVM shows me the option for Freddie Pharkas (Macintosh/English) and 6 other SCI games but not the Larry 6. Seems I have to get the md5 sums.
