Inherit the Earth - most versions freeze (update, floppy ok)

Post by Vlcice » Thu Aug 21, 2008 8:20 pm

I'm trying to set up ScummVM on my DS using an R4 and a 2GB Japan Kingston MicroSD card formatted in FAT16 with 32K clusters [edit: and FAT32].

I own the Mac OS X CD-ROM version (Wyrmkeep release) of Inherit the Earth, which I'm trying to set up in build E. It's detected properly in the menu, but when I start boots only to a black screen. The same game files do work in the Mac OS X version of ScummVM. I've also tried the DOS CD version, with similar results.

The DOS floppy version, meanwhile, boots properly but displays noticeable graphics corruption in the introduction sequence in the current beta - I'll report that in the proper thread.

I've also been able to test Flight of the Amazon Queen and Beyond a Steel Sky, which run properly. I've tried both the current stable release, 0.10.0a and the most current prerelease.

Is there any advice on getting this working? Thanks!

[Edit: added information on filesystem and DOS ITE.]
[Edit 2: updated again]

Does the Mac OS X version run in 0.11.1 on the DS?

0.11.1 is the current stable release, right? It was the first version I tried; unfortunately, it freezes like the other builds I've tried.

The full set of versions I've tested are:
0.12.0 beta 3
0.11.1
0.10.1a

I've been unable to get the Mac OS X version and the DOS CD version to work in any of these.

Just an update - I've now had the chance to test the classic Mac CD version as well, which also doesn't work.

I've also fixed something in my first post, where I accidentally wrote 0.9 (which doesn't support ITE) instead of 0.10.

Sorry for a triple post (though a good bit of time's passed since my last one), but I found something that might help figure out what's happening. I tried using ScummVM Wii using the same card and data files, and found similar behaviour - ITE CD versions also all freeze at a black screen on loading.

Is it possible that ScummVM's ITE engine is much pickier about data speeds than, say, BASS or FotAQ? I thought that my card (2GB Japan Kingston) was a fairly reliably speedy one, though I might be wrong. Are there any cards known to work with the CD versions of ITE in ScummVM DS?

Can you provide a list of the data files you've got?
