MagicTales

Post by scoriae » Sat Feb 04, 2012 6:09 pm

I recently purchased all the magic tales games. I was able to get the v2 books running perfectly fine, although the v1 books are not recognized.

Baba yaga and the Magic Geese, Imo & The King, and The Little Samurai all kick back as unrecognized.

Have they been added yet? or are just the v2 books currently recognizable?

I currently have Darby & the Dragon, Gregory and the Hot Air Balloon, Liam Finds a Story, Sleeping Cub's Test of Courage, and The Princess and the Crab all seemingly working fine.

I have the daily build from today, February 4th.

Well, the ones you listed as working are the only ones currently on the compatibility page.

If I recall, I think the devs only had limited copies of the v1 games (or not at all) so they wouldn't have a very robust list of md5s for different versions. If the console window lists the md5 sums for the files you might try submitting them to the bug tracker. Or, I could be wrong and they're completely unsupported.

Well, that is the point of my post. I want to know if I should submit the md5's or not bother if they aren't even supported yet.

Please do. They should work fine in theory but I don't have any idea in practice. :P There is a months-only bug report with the Mac md5s (my bad, eek), but no non-Mac md5s.

Could you please tell me how to set it up? I prefer playing games through Scumm VM + D-Fend Reloaded because then I can keep screenshots in DFR (and please don't tell me that you don't know anything about DFR; DFR people don't know anything about Scumm VM, so they won't help me either). In DFR, to create a Scumm VM profile I need to click what game it is. But "Magic Tales", or "Animation Magic games" are not on the list. Any advice?

OK, I'm running it in Scumm VM only after all. I played "Baba Yaga" without problems, however, now I'm having issues with bugs in "Liam Finds a Story".
1. The game gets stuck during the first page of the story itself, on the last word. Both in "Story" and "Play" mode.
2. I tried bypassing it by playing from a certain page. Page 2 of the story (or page 3 if the opening scene is included) ran OK, then on the next page the game got stuck as before.
3. I tried running it from the page "Brook". It doesn't even open, Scumm VM shuts. :( It should be a cute screen and I can't even make a screenshot... :(
