WME: Carol Reed Mysteries hint system not working

Reported by: albadross Owned by: lolbot-iichan
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Wintermute
Keywords: has-pull-request Cc:
Game: Wintermute

Description

The more recent Carol Reed Mystery games (since 05 - The Colour Of Murder and to date up to 13 - The Birdwatcher) have introduced a hints system (using a file called hints.csv). These work fine running the Wintermute games stand-alone. Could they be made to work under the ScummVM WME engine as well?

Thanks for reporting, the CR games are my all-time WME favourite.

I am not promising anything, but I'll try to have a look sometime during the next month.

To be honest, I have completed all the CR games using ScummVM Wintermute without needing any help. But when I finished them, I looked at the datafiles for the games and found they had a file called hints.csv. I thought that was odd because I have had never seen any hints whilst playing.

Sure enough, when I started playing a couple of the games directly (without ScummVM), the hints appeared.

I am really pleased that someone is taking an interest in the Wintermute engine again. It seems to me to be a really under-rated resource for ScummVM - I have completed more than 30 Wintermute 2D adventures (of varying lengths) using it.
