Cannot 'Add Game'

Post by FaeDine » Wed Mar 17, 2010 7:37 pm

Just got my GP2X Wiz, it's grand. Trying ScummVM out and not having much like as I cannot add any games.

I hit the 'Add Game' button, point it to the directory but keep getting the 'ScummVM could not find any game in the specified directory!'

I haven't tried many games, but a few. Loom and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis (both off Steam, though I don't think it should matter), and a copy of Monkey Island 3 off an SD Card (which I'm certain works, as I gave it a go when using ScummVM on my Wii)...

.. any ideas on what I can do here? Is there some way I can add games without using that button like editing a text file with a list?

Actually it does matter, we do not support the Steam versions currently. They are packaged a bit differently which prevents them to be working with ScummVM AFAIK.

Ahhh, perfect. That explains it then :) A bit odd that I couldn't get Monkey Island 3 going.. but I pulled out an old CD copy of Day of the Tentacle which works fine so it's enough to tell me it's something I'm doing now, and not the software.

Thank you very much!!
