DREAMWEB: Unknown floppy game variant

Reported by: Fistynuts Owned by: bluegr
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Dreamweb

Cc: Fistynuts Game: Dreamweb

Description

Hi, my floppy variant of Dreamweb isn't being recognised. These files were obtained on the net so perhaps could be untrustworthy. Let me know if you need them.

--

The game in 'dreamweb floppy\' seems to be an unknown game variant.

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

Fistynuts: We would generally recommend playing the freeware versions from:
https://www.scummvm.org/games/#games-dreamweb

Apart from copyright issues, random downloads are often badly patched / hacked which causes support issues.

However, if this is actually an official localised release, then we would be interested to see if this can be supported.

Hi, an update to this issue.

I've realised that the files I have are identical to the floppy version download on the ScummVM page. The difference in my set is that I always delete the .exe file from old game sets in case of virus or just of accidentally running it. Usually this doesn't affect game detection as the .exe isn't required but it seems different in this game's case.

Thanks for reporting this. Yes, the executable has been added to the detector of this engine in order to distinguish different versions with the same data files.

Closing as wontfix
