I am able to play loom cd english on my v8.1 phone. At what point does scummvm crash? If you try to add the game does it says no game is detected?

SCUMMVM v2.0 starts correctly.
All games I have listed on my previous post are correctly detected by scummvm and are displayed on its list.

But starting the listed LucasArts games crash systematically the application.

The others games start and run properly.

Friends of mine have devices with Android v7 and LucasArts games seems to work.
So I am wondering if the issue could be in relation with Samsung devices (or just with Galaxy Tabs).

comment:3 by stephanM92, 6 years ago

After many tests, I think to have identified the issue, and I am able to systematically reproduce the issue and also to workaround it:

LucasArts games do not start as soon I switch the SCUMMVM GUI in French (I didn't try with other languages).
As soon I switch back the GUI with the default option (in english for instance), all games (LucasArts and other games) work perfectly.

I can not explain :

  • why I have this issue on SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB A6 an S3 only, when SONY Xperia smartphone and ACER ICONIA Tab do not have this issue.
  • why only LucasArts games where impacted when the other games was working correctly when I turn on the french translation.

If someone have any idea ?

Could you please check if the issue still persists? Since this is quite a severe bug, it would be great to know if this is already solved since the last feedback is a couple of months old.

Sorry for the delay of my answer.
I have downloaded the last version from the store a couple weeks ago.
And the issue is fixed. Games can be correctly started.
