SCUMM: Loom: Unknown version

Reported by: dafioram Owned by: BenCastricum
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Loom


If I try to start the GOG version of loom as Steam/Windows it crashes with

User picked target 'loom-steam-win' (gameid 'loom')...
SCUMM gameid 'loom', file 'Loom.exe', MD5 'e0b329c46f3f3036be75b4f0432bad1b'

It works fine using the DOS/VGA platform.

Why do you want to add the GoG version as Steam version?

As far as I know, the Steam version has some game data embedded into the Loom.exe executable and therefore the gama data must be accessed in a differend way by ScummVM. This is why adding the GoG version which is the standard VGA version of the original game as the Steam version won't work.

Detection of the standard game as steam variant happens when you use the mass-add feature. But if you start the misdetected game, the game crashes. It happens with more of the steam games. The game detector should propably have some code added to prevent these misdetections.

PR1047 has been merged with master and prevents the false detection of Steam games from happening.
