Howdy Folks

The game I was trying to run was a parody of Myst, it's called Pyst. I found this CD in my archives and thought would be fun to run it again. If you need a copy of the ISO let me know. Happy to send it over. Would love to see this game up and running again.

The game in 'HDINST\' 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.:

Thank you for your report but the detection system misdetected the game.

Are you using a released version of ScummVM or a daily build?
PROGRAM.Z is a file name collision and detection should be fixed in daily builds.

I don't know which engine the game uses and I don't know how easy it could be to support it.

This is a false positive of fallback detection.

The game is in fact built on Director engine version 5.

In fact, adding 'program.z' as detection of cryonmi3d is not a good idea. @lephilosphe, let's take a look into it
