i got a problem which i think could be related to scummVM. when i get to the point where you have to put gems into the dish in the right order, it just won´t work. the fist gem (sunstone) works, but the next one doesnt.
i just checked a walkthrough and it says the garnet should be the next one. well, it vanishes in flames.
i tried every gem i could find in the whole area without success.
it would be nice if anyone could help.
I believe that apart from the sunstone, the other three gems are randomly selected for each game. I haven't seen any in-game clues for which they are, so it's hard to say. I saved and restored until I got it right.
Maybe you missed a gem somewhere. When I played through the game, I had collected the following gems by the time I placed the birthstones: amethyst, aquamarine, garnet, onyx, opal, peridot, pearl, ruby, sapphire, sunstone, and topaz. I never understood the logic of items appearing in The Legend of Kyrandia
, but Darm says that he "summoned all your stones". Maybe more gems appear at that point, so you may want to go back to the area around Brandon's home and search that again.
