Silly me, I should have read posts more carefully.

But simple delete the scummvmrc file didn't work for me, neither did delete scummvmrc and reinstall scummvm. I tried these steps fixed this issue:

1. delet scummvmrc.
2. start scummvm, click options, set graphic to SuperEagle, and enable correct ratio, click OK.
3. click options again, I found I cannot click Cancel or OK anymore, just like what happened in the game.
4. Exit and restart scummVM, click options, this time, the Cancel and OK buttons could be reached.
5. add discworld 2 game, start, problem solved, the bottom screen could be reached!

Thanks TomFrost, you did a nice port!

Another "issue" I've noticed is that there seems to be a few pixels at the bottom of the scene and above the text area in SQ2 that brings up a keypad dialog. It's not a big deal because I haven't run into a need to click in that area(you can walk off the bottom of the scene by clicking farther into the text area), but I'm curious what purpose this serves?

Thanks,
Tyler

Also, I'll report that the arrow keys on the HP bluetooth keyboard for the touchpad don't seem to function(at least in SQ2). There are a couple places where the keys are required.

Maybe I'll stop being lazy and try to fix it myself...

Wanna take bets on that?

I just registered to say: Thank you! This is an awesome port and flawless as far as I can see.

You updated it to include the MI talkies even before I was trying them. Very nice!

First, thank you for all of your time spent on the touchpad port. I started playing through Beneath a Steel Sky and all of your improvements work great. But for some reason I cannot load the save games. When I go to load a save game the virgin splash screen flashes briefly and then the debugger console pops up and says;

Console is ready
Debugger started, type 'exit' to return to game
Type 'help' to get a little list of commands and variables
ERROR: Tried to set invalid font (3991760)!

I can type exit but the enter button does not seem to do anything.
any one have any idea what could be wrong?o

UPDATE: I installed lure of the temptress and it loads just fine so the problem may be with BASS. Any help would still be appreciated. Thanks.

btw I am using the latest version (1.4.000). I also removed and re-installed scummvm to no avail.

Great, I love it :) (well my little daughter to play freddie fish!)

I couldn't save the games though, seems they do not appear automatically or when saving manually.
Any ideas?

Thanks for a great port, it allowed me to play my favourite old adventures!

Unfortunately, I have a problem with launching Toonstruck using this port. The game starts fune, but when I begin a new game after the end of the intro movie the app just closes without any notifications. Can I solve this somehow?

No HQ2x/HQ3x filters?

Post by urlauber » Sun Feb 05, 2012 3:19 pm

First of all: thx for this great port and putting it in the App Catalog, loving it!

Then a question out of curiousity, is there a reason why there aren't the two HQ-filters available in the graphics-options?

Yep -- I tested them, and they made the games skip and crawl on the Touchpad. Rather than deal with the bug reports of those filters not working, I just removed them since the TP wasn't capable of that level of processing power.

Your Port to WebOS is realy great. I´ve used ScummVM on a lot of devices over the last few Years (Windows Mobile, Windows, Linux/ Wii, PSP, Android), but never had so much fun with it.


But one question: How do i get the inGame Videos like in Baphomets Fluch?

I never played this Game completely, so I think i should see the Videos to understand everything, but it tells me all the time "Mpeg2 video no langer supported" or something like that.

How can I bring it back?

Thanks in advance
Tim

The videos for Broken Sword are available from the downloads page (look in extras)

Thank you very much
