I have just completed the first version of Corrosion - Cold Winter Waiting without any noticeable bugs.

Code: Select all

I decided to buy the game via the developer's website (and was sent to Humble Bundle) but all I could find was the Enhanced Edition. However, this version was detected in the same way by ScummVM as the original game.

I have tried random savegames from the first version and they seem to work perfectly well with the Enhanced Edition

Code: Select all

Updated resolution and aspect ratio for widescreen displays. New inventory. Larger in game text for easier reading. And some other general improvements. It's in the description. :)
Perhaps that is why the savegames still work.

Edit : I retract what I said about the earlier version - I may have been playing the enhanced version all along - it's been a long time for me waiting for a particular bug to be cleared! Anyway, the latest version needed to be reported.

I have also completed Helga Deep In Trouble (including the bonus chapter at the end) with no new noticeable bugs.

ScummVM 1.10.0git215-gd09c49f (Oct 8 2016 05:17:20)

Code: Select all

 WINTERMUTE: Don't crop UIEdit strings to negative sizes
If _maxLength was -1, we would end up with a 0-size allocation,
and a write that starts right before it, which gives odd results.
was vital to the completion of both Corrosion and Helga, so thanks all round.

Game : The Shine of a Star

I have got to the end of the game but I am not sure I would call it completable, because I started it with the latest Windows 64 development version and finished it with an older stable Linux version.

I shall put in a bug report but the problems all come in the shovel puzzle area.

1. The background is constantly moving around.
2. The game randomly crashes on entry to the area.
3. Even more annoyingly, having completed the puzzle on the wall, the game always crashes before you can save the game.

I suspect there is a regression because I was able to use my Windows savegames on the earlier Linux 1.9.0 build and, although the background still moves, you can save the game after you get the shovel and continue onto the end of the game.

Edit : The ticket #9720 has been created.

BTW These are all 2-D games. I have bought some 3-D Wintermute games but these, of course, run outside ScummVM.

The GOG version has enhanced graphics, so the game has these files which might be different from the steam version?
"Inter_hd.dcp,Inter_sd.dcp,GFX_sd.dcp,GFX_hd.dcp,data_sd.dcp,data_hd.dcp"

I tried removing the _SD prefix from according files.

I don't think you will have any joy with either of these games as the current ScummVM Wintermute engine is restricted to 2D adventures.

Alpha Polaris is definitely a 2.5D game and I would expect that the latest JULIA game is no longer 2D (at least I couldn't get it to work).

Although neither the ScummVM Wintermute engine nor the Wintermute software documentation have been updated for a very long time, you can usually check on the Wintermute games page for the games that are 2D.
