Gabriel Knight 1 Save Problem

Post by tree_poplar »

I'm using Scummv for some time now, and never have this kind of problem. It's really bugging me cause I really want to play GK since I never did. Everything works fine, but I can't restore my saves. It shows me information :"that game was saved under a different game or interpreter version"
Can anyone help me to overcome this issue?

Please, first check if you have all the necessary files copied in your game data folder.
Look into this recent ticket too, where this issue is also reported (and was due to a missing required data file: "VERSION ")
https://bugs.scummvm.org/ticket/12060

Also, if the issue persists, let us know more specifics about the platform (Operating System, hardware), ScummVM version, and game version you're testing with.
