How to Run Pajama Sam without CD?

Post by Janus » Sat Nov 05, 2005 8:12 pm

I own the CD Pajama Sam "No Need to Hide When It's Dark Outside" for Macintosh, but would like to run it w/o the CD through SCUMMVM. Copying the files to my harddrive doesn't seem to work. What is the trick?

Thanks.

BTW, the files on the CD are:
Catalog (an alias)
AutoRun
Pajama Sam
Apple System Siftware (folder)
Catalog (folder)
Trash (folder)
Pajama Sam (0)
Pajama Sam (2)
Pajama Sam (4)
Pajama Sam (7)
Pajama Sam (a)
Pajama Sam (r)
license.txt
Pajama Picture
Autorun (i)
Copyright
Pajama Sam (i)

The following files are required to play the Macintosh version of Pajama Sam 1:
Pajama Sam (0)
Pajama Sam (2)
Pajama Sam (4)
Pajama Sam (7)
Pajama Sam (a)

Please let us know the exact issue, if you are having problems starting the game.

Also you will have to copy only data forks of each file, not a MacBinary format which contains both resource and data forks.

Kirben, I copied the following to a folder on my hard drive from the the CD:

Pajama Sam (0)
Pajama Sam (2)
Pajama Sam (4)
Pajama Sam (7)
Pajama Sam (a)

In ScummVM, however, when I go to add a new game it lists five copies of:
Pajama Sam 1: No Need to Hide When It's Dark Outside (Macintosh). Selecting any one of them causes ScummVM to crash. Restarting and the clicking the entered PJ Sam title in ScummVM again causes ScummVM to crash.

Sev, I don't know what you mean by having to copy only data forks, not MacBinary format. Is there some relatively straightforward way to get rid of the unwanted portion, since perhaps the crashing problems comes from MacBinary?

Your help is much appreciated.
