Backyard Soccer 2004 problem

Post by Bernstein229 »

I run a Mac OS X 10.5 and I am trying to run Backyard Soccer 2004 from a Macintosh version CD-ROM. Whenever I try to run it I get two messages. The first is No Valid Save/Load Folder is set! Please use the 'Choose Save Folder' menu to select one. And I have a valid Save folder. It works with other games. When I click that I get this error message. ERROR! blinkw32.dll is not loaded. I click that. The same message comes up again. Then I get a grainy start up screen then it just stops. I have checked if I have the correct files and I do. What's wrong and what is blinkw32.dll?

first of all, the game apparently is unplayable in ScummVM: http://www.scummvm.org/compatibility.ph ... ils=soccer

are you trying it under ScummVM or the native version?

the error message you mention, is that blink or bink? A binkw32.dll could mean it tries to play bink/smacker movie files (which isn't supported by ScummVM in any case)

That should be "binkw32.dll". Make sure you have encoded the videos from bink to dxa.

That's normal. 16bpp graphics in HE games isn't supported (yet).
