Support for Mac Power PC OSX 10.3.9 - SVM 1.4 won't start

Post by 5x7 »

The build for OS X won't start. I am using a Powerbook G4 laptop ,Power PC, running OSX 10.3.9 -

SVM 1.4 won't start.

Also, 1.3 would not save in at least some Lucasarts games so it seems like compatibility is being lost.

1.2 seems to work fine (limited testing).

I noticed in the daily builds that there is a seperate build for power PC OS X - it does not start either.

I would love to play lands of lore.

Thanks for any help.

In Sam and Max, I tried saving using the Scummvm menu. The save menu opens, type in a name and upon clicking save it crashes to the desktop. I tried Indiana Jones and it won't start in 1.3

I will file a bug report in 1.4 and if we can get it starting , will work on the save issues.

I want to give all the developers a big THANK YOU! for continuing such a great program!!

Since I reproduced the issue on a G3 laptop running 10.3.9, I actually just added a bug report for the start issue with version 1.4.0: bug #3437529

Mind giving http://urbanfanatics.com/scummvm-1.4.0-macosx.dmg a whirl to see if it works any better?

This one has exactly the same issue for me (same errors and freezes before the window appear).
