SCI: Hoyle 5 floppy detection

Reported by: misterhands Owned by: sluicebox
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


Hoyle Classic Games for Laptops
This is basically Hoyle 5 floppy version for Windows
SCI 2.100.002

Matched game IDs for the SCI [SCI0, SCI01, SCI10, SCI11, SCI32] engine: gk2, hoyle5-demo, lsl7-demo, lighthouse-demo, mothergoosehires, phantasmagoria, phantasmagoria2, pqswat, shivers, torin-demo

{"ressci.000", 0, "ca50cf09f80a5f982a965afea852cc42", 3278849},
{"resmap.000", 0, "d5eef6f2529313e950c4d78251a95b1e", 4213},

Old Maid is not included in this version.
Also it has apparently no main menu and each game is launched by a windows shortcut that calls SIERRAWH.EXE with a config file as argument.
For example for Backgammon it's:
SIERRAWH.EXE 1300l.cfg

Owner: set to digitall
Resolution: fixed
Status: newpending

Detection entry added in commit f0ae36e1d78dbd315e4f898bf3e8bf3684fd1329.

This should work, but due to the split game / lack of main menu, this may need testing and amending to have separate game entries for each subgame i.e. cfg file.

@misterhands: Can you please test with the current entry and see if this works. If not, we will need additional information i.e. md5sums for each config file to add entries for each subgame.

Setting to pending user feedback...

Since bug submitter is not responsive and bug likely fixed, am closing.

@misterhands: If you get a chance to test with these, let us know the outcome here. Thanks.

Thanks for adding detection !

Game starts and shows a menu.
When clicking 'start game', it crashes with the following error:
View resource 903 not found!

@misterhands: Damn. I did wonder when you said about the missing main menu and direct links in the orignal game. Can you please file a new bug on this crashing at "Start Game" and add a list of all the datafiles present with File MD5sums? This will allow the SCI engine developers to locate a copy of this and investigate.

Since this game has never worked due to missing menu resources, I've flagged it as unsupported. I have also added the earlier floppy version to the detection table: e6273f2fdae3e36de0b107243e0deeb0dbe6cb64
