Thanks for your report. Unfortunately, adding new language versions to the older KYRA games is not as simple as just adding a detection entry. It involves some extra work and it can't really be done without access to the new game variant.

Is that an official French version of EOB or a fan translation? Is the translation publicly available as a patch (not as a warez download, we don't support that!)?

unfortunatly, i don't master enought amiga files to really understand what i'm doing.

the patch is awailable as a patch, but a wasn't able to use it due to my lack of knowledge.

so i found a warez version for testing, that work in the amiga emulator provided, and scummvm seems to recognise it.

you can find info about the patch version here :

and download the patch here :

The "patch" in fact isn't a patch. This is a full illegal download of the game. And it isn't even the translated original version, but a fan remake for the A1200/4000 which is basically a combination of the DOS and Amiga versions with some extra features (= basically doubled piracy, since they distribute DOS and Amiga version files).

Apart from the legal issues, patched together versions like this tend to be riddled with bugs and problems, so supporting them would be problematic in any case.

Closing as invalid.
