Priority: normal Component: Engine: Cine
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Future Wars


After asking in Discord someone told me to report the problem to the bug tracker.
It is a French Translation patch for Future Wars CD US release.
After apply the patch the game is not working anymore.
Scummvm see the ID of the game (fw-cd-us become fw-fr) and add it. So i guess it is not a md5 issue.
But after that when i launch the game i have a black screen.
My OS is Ubuntu.
Link to download the patch :

As fa as I know no fan translated versions of Future Wars are supported. What probably happens here is that after the patch is applied, it matches the detection entry for the original French floppy version. But as it is not the floppy version, it doesn't work. Adding a detection for this patched CD version might fix the issue. But it is possible the engine would need additional changes to support it (I am not familiar with this engine myself, so I an only guessing there).
