#10070 closed feature request (wontfix)

SCI: LSL7: Wallpaper feature not working

Reported by: ADeadTrousers Owned by: csnover
Priority: low Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords: sci32
Cc: Game: Leisure Suit Larry 7


In the original game after every encounter with a girl you will get a wallpaper inside the game directory for usage. Currently this feature is not working at all. As far as I know the files are stored as *.drv on the original game media and are just copied into the main directory as *.bmp after the encounter. I know this is just a silly feature but it is the way the original game rewarded the gamers for playing it. Not having this will mean to strip the current generation of these outstanding gifts (highly exaggerated) ;)

I use the german version 1.04g on Window 10 (1703) 64bit and SCUMMVM 1.10.0git4294-ga851c3b184

Thanks for your report! This game feature will not be supported by ScummVM since it is filesystem-dependent, it would be undesired for a game to write to the game data directory, and it would be unexpected for random non-critical files to show up in the save game directory. Just copy the bitmaps out of the game’s DRIVERS directory if you want them.
