Starting ScummVM on a DVD?

Post by SithlordDK »

Hi!

Is it possible to use ScummVM from a CD/DVD (with all my games on it)?

I made a .bat file that launches ScummVM with the scummvm.ini in the same directory, but when I try to start a game ScummVM doesn't find it. I guess the programm can't handle relative paths in the .ini (but I need to use them, because I have more than 1 PC and the other one has different Drive Letters)?

Relative paths are fine, but make sure your save directory points somewhere that's actually writable.

Example from my ini (save pointing to %temp% and a relative path to the game:

Code: Select all

[scummvm]
mute=false
speech_volume=192
native_mt32=false
midi_gain=100
talkspeed=100
gfx_mode=3x
subtitles=false
multi_midi=true
fullscreen=false
sfx_volume=192
savepath=%temp%
music_volume=192
autosave_period=300
lastselectedgame=monkey2
music_driver=auto
aspect_ratio=true
versioninfo=1.0.0
speech_mute=false
enable_gs=false

[monkey2]
platform=pc
gameid=monkey2
description=Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge (English/DOS)
language=en
path=..\..\Games\Classic\SCUMM\Monkey2\
guioptions=sndNoSpeech
