Do note that Shivers 2 is *not* a traditional SCI game, and is currently not supported. The game scripts have been compiled into external DLLs and the game graphics are pseudo-3D, with an omni-3D view. There is a WIP subengine for it, but it has not been merged into master yet.

Thus, even if the detection entry is added, the game won’t run

Thanks bluegr! So I guess adding this entry doesn't make much sense?

comment:4 by bluegr, 3 months ago

It can be added, but the entry should be commented out, as this game is not supported by our current SCI engine codebase

Status: newclosed

This entry already exists in the detection tables, bit it is disabled, for the aforementioned reasons. Closing as wontfix
