PQ 2 w Japanese Views (Crashes)

Post by 8BitAirwaves » Sun Oct 27, 2019 7:33 pm

Using SCI Companion and the View files from the Japanese version of Police Quest 2, I replaced the standard (non Japanese version) view files with the Japan version bc I love the quirky character art the Japan release got. The game works and plays to completion in DosBox however in ScummVM it crashes when trying to add the game. The error seems to be a corrupted hash table from (presumably) a memory error? Or so the log says- I’m in over my head!

Not a big deal but out of curiosity I wondered if anyone has an idea on how to fix this or to just explain to my simple mind why it’s happening- it’s bc it’s working in DosBox that I’m holding out hope it’s fixable. Note I tested in Mac OS X and iOS w same crash.

Here is the error log my Mac generated

Kinda following up on this. When I try to run the game, it will play the intro, but when I hit Enter to go to the game, it gives me an error that ScummVM was unable to load the SJIS.FNT. I've googled & tried to figure out how to get this font file, but haven't had any luck. Can anyone direct me to where I can get this?

Thank you very much :D I placed the file in the ScummVM folder, and even in the game folder. But it still keeps coming up with the message "Unable to load SJIS.FNT"...is there something else I need to do? :?

On my Win10 machine, the file is in ScummVM's folder:

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files (x86)\ScummVM\SJIS.FNT

Yeah, that's exactly where it's saved in my Windows 10 system as well. Have you been able to successfully run the Japanese version of PQ2?

Thank you. The game used to play just fine for me. Could you post the files that are required for the game to run? I'll compare that to the files I have. :?
