trouble with HOF

Post by 0AzK0 » Thu Apr 03, 2008 11:04 am

I`ve downloaded fresh version of scumm for PC and for Symbian and both have troubles with my CD(English, French and German) version of kyrandia. On symbian it is black screen after launching, and on PC it crashes just after I press Start game.

Do you get any error message on PC? (to get the error message under windows, see FAQ 5.6)

Are you really sure you got a ScummVM Subversion build + the latest version of kyra.dat?
And if so what platform/language did you set in the ScummVM launcher?

I updated that error message you got yesterday to be a bit more informative, so could you try todays build and give me the output again?

That looks really strange what's the filesize of your kyra.dat file?

Thanks! Now it works. I`ve downloaded kyra.dat and it started.

I`d downloaded file from downloads page and game didn`t run.

But symbian version still don`t work

I guess the symbian builds are just too old, I think you have to wait for the next stable ScummVM release there.

I`ve downloaded build 2 April 2008
It doesn`t crash, but the phone`s display is filled black and after 10-15 secounds phone reboots.

Well, if you know your way around your system directories, you can inject the updated kyra.dat into the installed ScummVM data to avoid the repetition of this same bug. Y'know?

I`ve replaced it in c:\data\scummvm and nothing changes. The game folder on the memory card is a copy of game, working with scummvm on pc
