I've got an SCI error to report.

Conquests of the Longbow gives me this error on startup:
shl on non-integer (ffff:0000, 0000:0000) from method Longbow:doit (script 994, room 803, localCall ffff)

This is with the latest SVN (52814).

I know that the game used to run fine.

Weird, it still works fine for me. (VGA version 1.000 patched, same revision).

Game: Loom
Game Version: PC-Engine/English
ScummVM Version: 1.2.0SVN 52814 (--enable-release used)
OS: Windows 7 x64

Problems: None. Plays perfectly as far as I can tell.

You might want to include a little information somewhere about the tools used to extract the data files from the disc though. It could be a bit confusing to people not familiar with their use.

OK forget my report... I think I somehow got some file corrupted.

From this page, it also lists "Build log" where it mentions "Updated to revision" and then the revision comes after that. We really need the revision as the build time doesn't help us at all.

I've been using ScummVM since 0.7 and I didn't know that ... how embarrassing.

Unfortunately the page you mention doesn't keep a full log so I had to svn co the code and do an svn log. According to the log no changed happened between 1:59:32 and 15:19:19 so it must be r52697. It would be more helpful if the filenames of the nightly builds had the release in them instead of just the date.

I didn't known that, sorry. I was building ScummVM using source form 15.09.2010 and unfortunately there is no more builds from that date on ScummVM daily builds page. If anyone can check those logs, it would be great.

Did you see the link to the bug tracker in the opening post? It's pretty straightforward... Not to mention there's a nice section in the FAQ for it.

There are other nightly builds that do have the revision (or they should). We don't really have control over the builds from where you downloaded them.

@pykman: I'll try to dig up what revision your build used, but please report the revision in the future.

Ok now I'm sure it's r52698 and I've edited my previous post. Sorry for the mess!

I've always got the revision number (with my own Linux Debian builds) by selecting the 'About...' button in the ScummVM main menu. Second from the bottom just above the 'Quit' button.
You have to be ready for it though as it scrolls by in a few seconds.
I assume it appears in all builds unless for some reason whoever compiled the build in question removes it.

2nd edit.
Thanks for confirming that Clone.
Indeed my builds have it in the main menu (launcher?) to the right of the search. I have 1.2.0 svn 5xxxx followed by date and time.
So I don't need to select 'About...' actually. I think I must be confusing it with how I find the revision number when I use ScummVM on another platform which I don't self-compile. Maybe Wii.

But that's only compiled in when you compile from an svn checkout. It's also much easier to see the revision from the launcher where it is written with the ScummVM version.
