Current state of .RBT support by ScummVM

Post by monsieurouxx »

Hi,

I'm currently curious about Phantasmagoria's video format (well the in-game format, which is .RBT, not the full-screen format, which is .VMD) and I saw that ScummVM doesn't support SCI2.1/Phantasmagoria yet but does have some pieces of code to load resource files.

By reading the source code ( https://github.com/Templier/scummvm-tes ... /robot.cpp ) I've seen that it can read through .RBT files.

So my question: can this code actually read through an entire video, or are there still mysterious bytes and misunderstood data?

PS: I'm also reading this, which is utterly interesting: http://multimedia.cx/eggs/subtitling-sierra-rbt-files/
EDIT: another interesting post from the comments below : http://vagsoft.chat.ru/sci.html

The current code for RBT support is incomplete. There's a pull request that adds full support for Robot videos, here:
