CD required

Post by Neo2008 » Wed Mar 04, 2009 12:02 am

Hi, i have installed Broken Sword 1 on my Palm (Tungsten T5).
I have copied all required files from the list to the SD card.
But when i start the game, it appears a message "Please insert CD 1"...

But i cant insert CD1 into my Palm :wink:

I'm not as familiar with Broken Sword 1 as with Broken Sword 2, but one way I can reproduce that on the desktop version of ScummVM is to remove the following files:

ireland.clu
scotland.clu
spain.clu
syria.clu
train.clu

If only some of the files are missing, I get a dialog telling me what's wrong, but not if all of them are missing since ScummVM assumes that you are trying to run the game from CD. Did you copy the files from the second CD as well as the first? (That's why the speech files have to be renamed, by the way. They're called the same on both CDs, but contain different data.)

Running the game from CD probably isn't supported, or at least not tested, but there is still some code there for handling it. (It looks for the files cd1.id or cd2.id to determine which CD is present, so copying those would probably work around the problem, but I wouldn't try that way myself.)
