SVN trunk (buildbot nightly builds) not working at all.

Post by Jinx1337 »

Hi,

I've downloaded the latest SVN TRUNK build from the buildbot, and couldn't help but notice that those don't really work on the iPhone.
They crash at startup, after the splashscreen.

Tried on both iphone 4 and 3gs. Any ideas? I didn't have any problems with other builds *such as the PSP one*

The 12.x branch works well on the other hand, it's only the latest trunk that's giving errors.

Thanks in advance for any reply and Merry Christmas to you all *especially the scummvm team*

I even set the file privileges right, still - same outcome.

Did anyone have any experience with SVN builds? I would really love to try one on the iPhone...

Any word on this?, it's been a few months :(

The old nightly build had some support for SCI3, which was kinda cool.

Nightly build just crashes on launch now.

Ldid is no longer available from cydia (or anywhere).

SCI3? Don't get your hopes up with SCI3 yet, there's still a LONG way to go with it

I kid u not.

Kings quest vii was more than playable untill you either tried to save game or touch inventory, then it would crash.

KQ7 is SCI2.1, not SCI3. In SCI3, a lot has changed regarding the actual kernel and script parser (plus a lot of other things). SCI2.1 is a different thing, it's more "playable", it's still in pre-alpha state, missing a lot of functionality, but it's in a slightly better state than SCI3. Refer to:

Ahh, my bad & apologies.

Is there a nightly build with SCI2.1 available for testing?

As I say these just crash now.

Cheers

Problem Solved!
Make absolutely SURE you have your permissions set correctly:

Code: Select all

Owner: root
Group: wheel
Permissions: 755
     Owner: Read, Write, Execute
     Group: Read, Execute
     Public: Read, Execute
AND in the audio tab switch the Music Device to "AdLib Emulator"

Thanks again.

There's a couple ways -

If you have OpenSSH installed, you can login to your phone with FileZilla or something similar as an SFTP connection and right click the folder you copied ScummVM to and change permissions there.

You could also install a file manager on your iPhone through Cydia (I've got iFile) and change the permissions one file and folder at a time in there.

If you need more direction, I can try and write up a full tutorial, but I'm stuck on my phone right now in Seward, Alaska so it won't happen until I can get back to civilization. :)
