MADS: Rex Nebular: Demo not detected in 2.5.1

Reported by: TrivialBalderdash Owned by: tag2015

Cc: TrivialBalderdash Game: Rex Nebular


The Rex Nebular playable demo is not detected in ScummVM 2.5.1 on MacOS 11.6.7 (x64 Intel). It also does not detect the demo in 2.2.0. The game IS detected correctly in a 2.6 daily build from June 13.

If this is a recent addition to ScummVM, please ignore this bug report. I didn't see anything in the release notes about it, so I decided to document it here. Thanks!

Note: The demo is available in the downloads folder, but not listed on the website yet. https://downloads.scummvm.org/frs/demos/

I should have done some more testing before submitting.
While the detection in 2.6.0pre identifies the demo correctly, it doesn't actually start. I assume it's not fully implemented yet. Sorry for the confusion on my part.

Thanks for the report, as you said, the game is already in the detection tables for 2.6.0 and master but not working.
I updated the entry marking it as unstable (commit 8def4f).

There are various demos which aren't working and since this demo isn't even in the "official" downloads page , I'm closing this bugreport.
