Legend of Kyrandia - Unknown MD5

Post by Malice » Mon Oct 31, 2005 9:56 am

Hi i was curios about how far along the WIP was for Kyrandia and it seems i have an unknown version:

Legend of Kyrandia (English (US)/DOS)
Unknown MD5 (3c244298395520bb62b5edfe41688879)

and i get the message:

couldn't open pakfile 'KYRA.DAT'
couldn't open Kyrandia resource file ('KYRA.DAT') make sure you got one file for your version!

Not very far, as far as I know. For the CD version, which is all I have, it plays the intro with one very noticeable glitch, and then it crashes. The floppy version supposedly has some very basic functionality in addition to that.

See http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Kyra for details, including the missing KYRA.DAT file.

Thanks for the link. After getting KYRA.DAT and applying the patch to v1.3 my floppy version is recognized and shows the intro.

Was it an English floppy version 1.0 before?

@eriktorbjorn:
Does it still crash with current cvs? I fixed a bug that let it crash with the CD version after the intro a few days ago...

Hard to say. I used to get a some failed assertion right after the intro. I forget exactly what it said, but it was something about shapes. So I updated to the latest KYRA.DAT from the CVS repository. Now it hangs even before the intro, or sometimes it terminates with an "invalid resource file version (1)" message.

I have a feeling that the file in CVS wasn't the latest version after all...

hmmm k I have to check, btw. the assertion is normal I thought of a segfault or something when you told about a "crash".
