Mystery House - how to play ?

Post by SignurGian » Fri Jan 04, 2019 6:33 am

Hi,
on scummvm.org a copy of Sierra's classic game "Mystery House" is provided on the download site. Nice, but how is this game meant to work?
After unpacking the downloaded zip file, I end up with a file "mysthous.dsk" which is NOT recognized by ScummVM as a usable file. It's greyed out and cannot be selected within ScummVM. I'm on Mac Mojave and I use ScummVM 2.0.0.1 64bit with sparkle disk enabled. Any hints?

I don't know if there's anything different about the Mac port, but normally you should select the directory that contains the mysthous.dsk file, not the file itself. Does that work?
