MADE: Unknown game variant

Reported by: jihill Owned by: aquadran
Priority: low Component: Engine: MADE
Version: Keywords: unknown-game demo missing
Cc: Game: Return to Zork


The game in 'Demo' seems to be an unknown game variant.

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 MADE engine: rtz-cd

{"", 0, "946997d8b0aa6cb4e848bad02a1fc3d2", 130683},

This is an interactive demo for Return to Zork 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.

Return to Zork is currently available from Infocom on floppy disk
and CD-ROM formats for the IBM and is also availiable on CD-ROM
for the Macintosh.

A second file created during installation lists:

To see the Return to Zork Demo, type RTZ at the prompt. Return
to Zork is currently available on both floppy disk and CD-ROM

The CD contains:

10 .PMV files
and what I assume are some RTZ windows files (.PIF, .GRP, .ICO)
There is also a 'Drivers' folder with LSIZE and MAKECD referenced in the batch file.
(There are other files, but I'm only listing what matches the Datafiles web page.)

RTZ.BAT contents:

@echo off

Any chance this interactive demo might work within ScummVM? I didn't see it listed on the Demos page, so I thought I'd submit it here and ask. Thank you.

I added a detection entry, would appreciate it if you could provide the files so I could test.

Thanks for the update. I tested with the May 8 daily build. The detection works correctly, but the demo didn't start initially. The message returned is that demo.dat is missing (and later demo.prj, after I created a demo.dat file).

I renamed RTZCD.DAT to DEMO.DAT and RTZCD.PRJ to DEMO.PRJ, and it seems to be working.
I e-mailed a link to the download location (April 20). It doesn't contain these renamed files.
