Blade Runner WIP

Post by legluondunet »

Update 13 Sep 2019
This is an old thread. The new discussion for ScummVM support of Westwood's Blade Runner is here: Testing Blade Runner with ScummVM

Hello,

I saw these video on Youtube:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wQlG5jXfjI

and an engine called "BladeRunner" in ScummVM Github repository:
https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/tree ... laderunner

So I compiled ScummVM with all game engines, even developpment engines.
But it doesn't recognize my Blade Runner (french version) installed files.
Someone obtained better results than me?

Did you get your ScummVM sources from git or downloaded the release sources? You need git master for Blade Runner.

Also, so far only the English version is detected: see the detection table, so you will need to add detection for your version and perhaps submit the checksum as a patch.

Yes and before compiling I configured ScummVM with "./configure --enable-all-engines"

Is it md5 sum reported by ScummVM? What is the size of the file?

No it's md5 sum reported by this command line:

Code: Select all


$ md5sum STARTUP.MIX
dd93bfc4ea9ced48ace6691822653f37  
The file size is:

Code: Select all

$ ll STARTUP.MIX

Can you please use the following command to report the necessary information we have to add to the detection table?

Code: Select all

head -c 5000 | md5sum STARTUP.MIX
Thanks!

Your command line does not work on my Ubuntu terminal.
I modified it like this:

Code: Select all

head -c 5000 STARTUP.MIX | md5sum
and I obtained this result:

Hi, I know this game is unsupported, however can someone update the Datafiles wiki for this game? How is the multi-CD file, HDFRAMES.DAT handled?

Does anyone one know if this game is completable and if not, how far have you progressed? Thank you.

The engine currently expects to use HDFRAMES.DAT which is created by the Blade Runner installer. Running directly off of the CDFRAMES.DAT is not supported yet.

The game is far from completable. You can currently walk around in the first scene outside Runciter's.

Is it possible to force the recognition of my Bladerunner version? An option in the command line or manually add it in the scummvm.ini config file?
