ScummVM.version = 2.4.0git461-g5d7ae659bf (Sep 20 2021 11:06:29)

Stargate Adventure AGS (2.7 I think)

This game does not seem to work in the build of ScummVM I am using. It crashes after correctly loading the intro logo.

I got the game from the AGS_archive Torrent. There are three versions of the game in that torrent. The same error happens on all three versions.

  • Stargate Adventure.rar
  • Stargate Adventure 1.1.rar
  • Stargate Adventure.zip

Only the version "Stargate Adventure.rar" ran by running the AGS exe itself on windows 10.

When adding the games to ScummVM, two of them had a popup saying it was a "unknown variant" and had a button called "copy to clipboard" that seemed to save a bunch of information you may need.

I have attached the "copy" code from ScummVM that pops up when I add the game for these versions as text files to this ticket for these versions of the game.

  • Stargate Adventure.rar
  • Stargate Adventure 1.1.rar

Stargate Adventure.zip just added without any popup warnings at all. It still errors though in the same place. As there was no popup at the start I do not know how to get the "copy code" like the other 2 versions above.

I added all the games using default options. I changed nothing. Just unrared the nightly build, then pressed add game, browsed to dir and hit ok.

This is my first time using the debug report thing.. let me know if I did anything wrong or need to add any more info. - Thanks.

I've added in the detection details you provided. As for the startup crash, that was due to the game having a few .avi videos (gatetravel.avi and intro1.avi) using unknown audio streams (at least ScummVM doesn't support it). Since I have no idea how to support it, for now I added a simple workaround to skip trying to play videos for this game, so it now starts.

BTW: Another fix that I had to was that it revealed the AGSParallax plugin used by the game wasn't being properly loaded on startup. Since this is the first game being tested that uses it, please let me know if you encounter any obvious parallax-related graphic issues when playing the game, since that particular plugin implementation hasn't been tested yet.

If I recoded those AVIs to something more standard would they work? I'd be happy to host a patch or something?
