loom on android

Post by schwiz »

has anyone got any copy of loom to work on the scummvm that is on the android market? It keeps freezing for me after you pick the difficulty.

I hope you do not plan to violate forum rule #0: No warez...

If you just want to find out whether Loom runs on the G1, good luck to you. The G1 port is not yet official, though.

If you reread my msg, as well as some of the other threads here, you'll be aware of the G1 port. The "warez" part referred to Loom, not ScummVM on Android ;).

ok so im confused is there a place for G1 port discussion and yes I am just wondering if anyone has got loom to run on said g1 scummvm port. Or if it is just me or my copy that crashes after selecting the difficulty level.

What we can say is. try recopying the gamefiles from the original media (floppy, cd) to see if it works any better. And I guess the G1 (not Android) version of ScummVM is work in progress.

Maybe it's because I don't frequent this fourm enough to suspect every other post to be a request for warez, but I thought the original poster was just asking if anyone got their copy of loom working.

To the original poster: i had problems with sam n max freezing. someone here told me something that might work for u. download the pc version n use it to get past the point ur stuck at. then copy the save game to ur game directory on the phone and load it up from the phone. hopefully u can play it that way since you'll be past where it freezes up.

If someone can say that newer svn versions fix these problems I'll happily upload a newer build to the market.

I could also go backwards and base my port on the 0.13 release, but I was kinda hoping 0.14 would come out soon and save me from making such a decision ;)

It will be released in August or something :) We could release 0.13.1 in a month or so if there will be important bugs discovered.

Gotta say I'm impressed by how much attention you're actually paying to these threads. Great work Gus! I'm rooting for this G1 port to be popular BECAUSE I love it! Can't wait for your update.

moderatorial: Sorry, pal. You get a warning for violating Forum Rule #7. Also I would like to point you to Rule #12 "The official language is English".
