Has anyone solved the problem with saving?
Dreamcast version Neverhood is slow, I hope in the new version scummvm, it will run faster.

not an elegant solution, i know, but i 'fixed' this hexediting the corresponding plugin,
shortening the savefile name string into that, i.e. NEVERHOO.xxx instead of NEVERHOOD.xxx
1 less char is enough in this case

The official Dreamcast backend has problems with saves in engines whose names are longer than 8 characters.

My alternate backend supports long filenames for save files and otherwise handles saves the same way as other standard backends, so it might be worth trying if you’re having problems with the official backend.

i'll do some tries with your backend and Mohawk games (Myst/Riven)
just curious to see if i can finally reach to reload the gamesave, unlike the standard DC one
