Palm TX Problem- ScummVM Closes and goes to Launcher

Post by gunslinger747 »

I just recently discovered ScummVM and am very excited to get it working...I love DOTT and other old games like it.

I have a Palm TX and a 1 Gb Sd card.

I have followed the installation instructions I found in the readme files. ScummVm launches and is skinned, and I have the game file for Flight of the amazon queen in the directory you see below...

I have my card selected in the card menu. I have the game manager set as follows...

Entry name:TEST
Path:slot2://PALM/Programs/ScummVM/Games/FOTAQ/
Game:QUEEN
Engine: Flight of the Amazon Queen

When I click "start", the screen first shows a small pop-up that says "Importing Databases, please wait", then goes to a white screen with very small writing in the center that has the scumm version (9.1), "Loading please wait" and memory:(some number).

Then my palm goes back to the regular launcher screen. Thats it. It does this every time without fail. I would really appreciate some help...I am very excited to get this working, as I am sure everyone else was when they tried for the first time.

For what it's worth, this sounds a lot like the problem I was having with the previous release. I have a Treo 650 which is essentially the same hardware if I recall correctly... so the solution may be related.

Do you use UDMH to increase the available memory?

Hope you understand my English...
First you should not select any game in the launcher (delete all games) and then press "start". Select the engine you need - the old launcher starts and you can choose your game.

I am having the same problem in launching SCUMMVM programs on my Palm TX. The Palm finds and starts to load (I think) the engine, goes to a white screen indicating the memory and then "quits out." Based on the quoted E-mail (above) I tried UDMH and increased dynamic memory to 8 MB but it repeated (i.e. started loading to the white screen with the tiny letters then quit).
If anyone has found a way past this I would appreciate the solution.

correct path is just FOTAQ/

The easier way to use the frontend is simply to not use it :)
With no game selected, press the start button, then you'll have the standard scummvm launcher
