All the inane chatter goes in here. If you're curious about whether we will support a game, post HERE not in General Discussion :)

Director Games List

Post by appoloin »

Has anyone ever found a complete list of games released that use the Director engine. There's the ScummVM wiki list (https://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php?title=Director/Games) and a few more can be found on MobyGames list (https://www.mobygames.com/game-group/ga ... -director/). I can add Rhem 1-4 to the list, so there must be other games missing.

The list alone is not quite useful for us: somebody needs to look inside of the executable for string "Macromedia Director" and determine the Director version.

Whatever works for you: search for "Macromedia Director" in the .exe file.

I opened REHM.exe (first game, english version) in GHex, there was one occurrence of "Macromedia Director" but nothing near by that looked like a version number. I did find a shockwave 8 entry.

We are not even looking into post-Director 6. So, I am not aware how to get the version number for Director 8. This game sounds like out of scope for ScummVM.

Ok, the game does run in Wine so it still playable unlike some of the earlier Director games.
