Anyone know do I need to put stuff in a different place then it is on the CD?

This is still happening in a 08/21/2022 build.

Improvements have been made on this game.
This specific error has been fixed with: https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/commit/47474b340706dabfd1a18bddb31e9cea6f392e8c

The game will now start, but expect weird visual bugs.

comment:5 by jamie-marchant, 19 months ago

I can confirm the game does now start. Did you file a new bug report for the graphical issues?

(Really excited about this, one, it's hard to get the game to run on anything newer then Windows 3.1)

Nice to hear the about the excitement.

Regarding the bugs. I don't file them myself when I'm working on supporting game.*
Don't let that stop you from filing them yourself though.

If you're interested in following the development for Director games more closely, then you're welcome to join our discord server.

*Filing bugs for a game that is this broken would mean significant overhead in managing the tickets. Time that I would rather spend on fixing issues.

Sorry I am very busy man. This program no longer crashes in the latest daily build. It does need Quicktime VR support to work and that does not seem to be implemented yet.
