Help with Riven

Post by 19acomst » Sun Dec 17, 2017 5:58 pm

I've tried a couple times to get Riven working on SCUMMVM, but I've never been able to. I have an original five disk box set and I'm not sure how to copy the disk info when several files have the same name but different sizes and, presumably, content. Any help would be appreciated

The information on what to do with multiple files with the same name was indeed missing, but has now been added to our wiki: either one will work, but it is recommended to use the biggest ones (from the assets1 directory) since they are encoded with a higher audio quality.

All of those files are present, but the game still doesn't run. I try to add the game directory, but it only produces an error message that game data is not found.

Are you able to add Riven to the game list? Are there messages related to Riven in console or in the log files?

Riven is a newly supported game in ScummVM 2.0. You are using version 1.9. Please update!
