Was not sure if this was a regression, so have tested v1.9.0, v1.8.0, v1.5.0 and back to v1.2.0 which was the first release with the SCI engine. This has always been the same behaviour from scummvm -z.

Not sure if this is correct or not. I thought that this output should list all PlainGameDescriptors for compiled / plugged-in engines, but I may be wrong on that.

When i tried it with pink engine, it showed two supported games.

Hmm. I wondered if this was related to singleId in the detector and the issues with gameid. See this PR which is proposing engineid as a fix for this:

But despite SCI engine supporting a large number of games, I don't think it is using singleId.

Will have to do some testing and check through code to work out what is going on and why.

SCI does use a single game ID (_singleId is set in SciMetaEngine), and this behavior is what pull request #1210 should resolve.

Ah sorry... missed the code line previously:

Yes, that explains this "bug".
