TOLTECS: Demo fails to load adlib timbre file
|Reported by:||henke37||Owned by:|
|Cc:||Game:||3 Skulls of the Toltecs|
Trying to start the game results in an error about not finding the adlib timbre files.
I specifically selected adlib music, for unrelated reasons.

Hit this too when testing the game for the 2.6.0 release.
As is, the current
toltecs-demo.zip archive puts the
WESTERN file in an
ENGLISH.PDI/ directory. The current detection code for TOLTECS doesn't look for this file in this particular directory.
- if you point ScummVM to the main directory, it will say it can't find any game there.
- if you point ScummVM to the
ENGLISH.PDI/subdirectory, it will detect the game, but it will fail running with the Adlib error above.
The quickest fix would be to repack the hosted demo so that
ENGLISH.PDI/WESTERN is moved back to the main directory. That would also make it work out-of-the-box on older ScummVM releases.
(If the TOLTECS detection code can also look for
ENGLISH.PDI/WESTERN as a fallback, that could also be helpful in case the original demo was shipped this way.)
Seems to work if you move the
WESTERNfile to the same folder as the other demo files. That's not ideal, but I don't know enough about the detection to suggest how to properly detect the game without that.
