SCUMMVM cannot "find game" Starship Titanic on CD

Reported by: wstrohm Owned by: dreammaster
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Titanic
Version: Keywords: Installation
Cc: Game: Starship Titanic


User here, sorry for ignorance..

Using either "SCUMMVM version for macosx," or "SCUMMVM version 2.1.0git841-g59eeadc (Feb 6 2018 04:49:52)" with RIVEN installed.

Unable to install Starship Titanic for Mac from its CD set, probably due to my ignorance of correct procedure. Tried the "assets" folder on CD1; SCUMMVM error message says no game in that folder. Tried the Install folder on CD1, and game "titanic-win appears on SCUMMVM menu, but clicking "START" gives error message no game found. Tried different options, selecting "Macintosh" where available in Options, but still "game not found" whenever "START" is clicked.

Any help for a newbie to SCUMMVM? Riven runs perfectly, but it was installed from the 10th anniversary DVD from Cyan Worlds. There are 3 CDs in the Starship Titanic set. CDs 2 and 3 contain only the "Assets" folders, only CD1 has an installer.

What is the correct file or folder to present to SCUMMVM to do a proper install, and what are the correct options?

My computer:
CPU: Intel Core i7 6700 (3.4 GHz)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H170N-WIFI (Mini-ITX)
RAM: Kingston 16 GB DDR4
Storage: (2) Samsung 850 EVO SSD
Graphics: Gigabyte nVidia GTX 1050 TI OC (low profile

Mac OS 10.12.6 (Sierra)
SCUMMVM (either version described above)
Starship Titanic (Mac OS "Classic" or version 7.5 through 9.2.2) - 3 CD set

Thanks for your attention!

Sorry, but we don't support the Mac version. Is uses some non-standard video formats for all the animations and cutscenes that we don't know how to decode. Plus, since the PC version is available from GOG for only a few dollars, I haven't felt any enthusiasm for devoting all the extra time to support it.
