Leisure Suit Larry 6 Mac & ScummVM 1.8.0 source

Post by michaelklaube » Wed Nov 18, 2015 7:55 pm

Hello Forum Members,

I tried the above and found out that LSL 6 Mac is neither detected nor supported!

My question: why isn't it supported while the DOS version is?

Best Regards,

Michael

The LSL games are supported by the SCI engine:
http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/SCI

The detection tables have no Mac specific entries for LSL6, hence why this is not detected:
https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/blob ... n_tables.h

I would suggest that few people have the Mac versions of the game and thus detection entries have not been submitted.

If you can indicate exactly which version you have and supply a file listing of the datafiles along with sufficient MD5sums, then a detection entry can be added to allow detection:

I have English Mac versions of Leisure Suit Larry 6 and 7, but I didn't think the SCI engine had progressed far enough that they were interesting yet. It's too late at night for me to look any closer right now, but if someone reminds me (and maybe gives me a hand) I should be able to check later.

Thanks for the provided info.

I thought it's a bug but when too less people actually have a copy (but me and eriktorbjorn) than it is probably not needed.

Perhaps later I'll try to get the needed info out of my terminal, but don't rely on me.

Nevertheless have a nice day!

Again, thanks :lol:

Why is the Mac version still not detected in ScummVM 2.0 ?

As I said before, detection md5sums are required to start with...
