As we discussed offline, I have a wide range of Patrito / Sinkha stuff that I'm almost done adding, including this one. Once we make a decision on "The Art of Marco Patrito", I'll consolidate these and push upstream.

trembyle: what is status of this?

comment:4 by trembyle, 21 months ago

A lot of this done in my fork, and I also have the remaining Sinkha episodes.

I've had to take some emergency time off Discord and the project for personal reasons, although I do hope to return soon.

I cleaned up the entries and committed in 08e0f64,
so I'm closing this bugreport.

@trembyle, please reopen if needed.

I have bought Sinkha 2 from the official webpage, and my variant is not detected. Error message:

Also, when I start either Sinkha 1 or Sinkha 2 (which is detected as fallback only) on MacOS on latest buildbot nightly from 01/16/2023, it crashes back to desktop.

Could please post the list of files in your downloadable version? I based the detection off the players available on the official website for the cd version, if it's not detected they must have changed something in the layout

Contact me on discord with direct messages if you don't know how to proceed

Sorry, didn't notice that you are a dev. The detection entry, besides the exe that was used also for other games, looks for file ME/MAA.cxt. If you don't have that file you could provide the md5 of the first 5000 bytes of some other file in your release
