Zork Nemesis: The Forbidden Lands
Zork: Grand Inquisitor
The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Serrated Scalpel
The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Rose Tattoo
I have got at least halfway through and have submitted game-stopping bug reports (some of which are being looked at, as I write) for :
Amazon: Guardians of Eden
Broken Sword 2.5: The Return of the Templars
It looks as though 1.8.0 will be a humdinger!
Edit : All my games are PC versions run with Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit.
Can you please give more information about the game versions, i.e. language, whether they are CD or Floppy versions (if applicable)?
When reporting that you completed a game, please also give the exact version ScummVM shows in the launcher (and your platform, including whether you use a 32bit or 64bit build of ScummVM). For the version we are especially interested in the last 7 characters. For example, a version you can see is: "1.8.0pre89-gf37362b". Here we would be especially interested in "f37362b".
It can alterantively be obtained through the command line by passing --version to the ScummVM executable.
It would also be nice if you could tell whether you used multiple daily builds for playing through. Ideal would be if you used a single version of ScummVM for a single game, i.e. play whole game with "1.8.0pre89-gf37362b". If that is not possible, due to bugs etc., it would be very interesting for us to know the versions of all ScummVM builds you used while playing.
I am not sure how helpful I can be with the version numbers of ScummVM that I used for running these games. I had a period out of action towards the end of last year so I decided to catch up on a lot of old adventures games. So I was not keeping a record of the versions I used.
But I keep a very extensive collection of savegames for games I have completed and so I can tell when I completed a game or, for instance, when I was held up for a bug to be sorted out. I do not know if you can tell from my dates of savegames at the end of each game what version of ScummVM was available at the time but I will give them to you in case.
All played in one day
Zork Nemesis Finished 01/10/15 15:13
Zork Grand Inquisitor Finished 30/10/15 13:49
Played over a number of days as bugs had to be resolved
The Case of the Serrated Scalpel Finished 07/12/15 00:59
The Case of the Rose Tattoo Finished 19/12/15 13:56
Amazon - Guardians of Eden Finished 18/01/16 12:40
Broken Sword 2.5 Finished 09/02/16 17:50
All these saves were made on a Win64 system and I have been in the habit of getting the Win64 buildbot version every morning. One exception : with Amazon - GoE, bug #7024 was checked on the Feb 12 Win 32 daily build.
All are CD English versions with the obvious exception of Broken Sword 2.5 (downloaded from the website with English translation).
