Can things in the Debugger be saved to a file?

Post by mink »

I have a question about the "Debugger" console I can access in SCUMM games such as Maniac Mansion.

Is there a way to have the console save the text which appear on it to a file? If I enable all of the debugflags, I notice that selecting "objects" sends the name of the room to STDERR. That's the only thing I recognise in the game's output, though.

Alternatively, is there another way to obtain the names & numbers of the objects in a room (or the game) as text?

I'm asking because I've had a look at some of the files created by descumm, and I think they would be easier to interpret if I could just look up what (say) object 53 is called in a list.

Thanks.
