Backyard Football 2002 shutting down at the start of a game

Post by KenzoSSW » Fri Mar 08, 2019 12:41 am

So, I wanted to play BF2002 and heard that scummVM might be able to work. So I put all the files into ScummVM, and upon starting a match, it gets to the loading screen, freezes, and forces closes. now I don't know what to do at this point so I came here to see if they are any fixes.

Technically that game is supported, but your mileage may vary as it was the last SCUMM HE game to be produced:

There are some missing support and opcodes so might have glitches:

I would suggest trying earlier versions of ScummVM from v1.1.0 onwards and see if this works with earlier versions (and thus is a regression which you should file a bug on at bugs.scummvm.org) ... or is this that your datafiles are variant / broken?

I would suggest you also test with the latest nightly development build in addition to v2.0.0 stable release and see if this has been fixed?

Thanks!, BF2002 starts as normal, but again the same problem occurs but a menu pops down.
