Broken Sword 2.5 will not start

Post by GeorgeStobbert »


today we wanted to play Broken Sword 2.5 on a Wii using ScummVM 2.2.0.
Unfortunately, we could not get it to work properly (in contrast with Broken Sword 1 and 2 which were running like a charm!).

The following error is output:
startup as 'sd:/apps/ScummVM/boot.elf'
initSize 320*200*8 (000 -> 000 match: 1)
window caption: ScummVM 2.2.0 (Sep 22 2020 10:11:34)

Looking for a plugin supporting this target... Broken Sword 2.5

Abort called.
ScummVM exited abnormally (-127).
Press any key to continue.
I tried reinstalling ScummVM as well as the game which I downloaded from ...
The old Broken Sword work fine. Only 2.5 does not :-(

Could anybody give us kindly a useful hint?

Thanks in Advance!

Broken Sword 2.5 has 800x600 resolution. The assertion you got shows that Wii port is working only for 640x480 or less. Thus, I think, the game will not work until the port is updated.
