Reported by: jihill Owned by: aquadran

Please report the following data to the ScummVM team at along with the name of the game you tried to add and its version, language, etc.:

Matched game IDs for the AGOS engine: simon1

{"icon.dat", 0, "22107c24dfb31b66ac503c28a6e20b19", 14361},

This is a demo for CD-ROM version of Simon the Sorcerer 1 from a 1994 English language Zork Anthology CD.
The Disk.ID file contains:

The Zork Anthology

The file has the following relevant information:

The Zork Anthology includes demos of four of our
products: Simon the Sorcerer CD-ROM, Return to Zork,
MechWarrior 2: The Clans, and Planetfall: Floyd Strikes Back.

Simon the Sorcerer is currently available from Infocom on
floppy disk for the IBM and will be available on CD-ROM in 1995.


Occasionally during interactions with characters or items, various
action selections intermittently result in Simon responding with
a partial audio fragment preceding the proper audio clip.
Currently there is no patch available to correct this problem.

The Simon the Sorcerer CD Demo will not run properly with Gravis
Ultrasound sound card products. We recommend that users with
Gravis sound cards do not install this demo.

There should be a 'simon.gme' file too, if it is the CD demo.

comment:2 by jihill, 5 years ago

Thanks for the quick feedback.
Yes, simon.gme is in the directory as well. (8 files total)
Date = September 2, 1994.
Size = 1,236,298 bytes
MD5 for the first 5000 bytes = a8c91fe4f316b3e047d6782811eb1b70

(Command used: head -c 5000 <file> | md5)

The CD also contained simon.voc, effects.voc, gamepc, and mt_fm.ibk, matching the list of files on the Datafiles web page.

Since it is a demo, could you please provide the files?

I added the detection, but it would be nice to have the files so I could actually test.

comment:5 by TrivialBalderdash, 3 years ago

I tested the game using the May 8, 2021 daily build and everything looks good. Thanks!
I e-mailed a link to the download location (April 20).
