I have installed the lastest version of scummvm. I cant get it to add full throttle. When I try to point to the dictory it says "scummvm could not find any game in the specified dictory". I even copied the cd to a folder in my c drive. Help!!!

As far as I know you have to double-click (i.e. "enter" the directory) and click "Choose" - just selecting the directory isn't enough.

The files it looks for to are listed here.

Alternatively, you could try the mass-add feature: hold down the "Shift" key - the "Add Game..." button should change to "Mass Add..." - click on that to make ScummVM look for all subdirectories for supported games.

(I'm assuming you're using the Windows version of ScummVM)

also some versions keep the actual game files in a folder called "RESOURCE" or something similar (esp the more recent dvd case releases)
