DIRECTOR: Unknown game variant for director

Reported by: rubin55 Owned by: tag2015
Priority: high Component: Engine: Director
Version: Keywords: unknown-game
Cc: Game:


The game in 'data\' seems to be an unknown game variant.

Please report the following data to the ScummVM team at along with the name of the game you tried to add and its version, language, etc.:

Matched game IDs for the director engine: shadeviewer-demo-mac-ja

{"Manual", 0, "53bc49d386a787232ba70be5c7f79a25", 157932}, ADGF_MACRESFORK,

Note: I the file that matches this, seems to be many, many, MANY "Manual" files on my Amiga Games directory. When I run the Mass Game Adder in ScummVM 2.6.0, I get baraged by these errors. It seems to me that "shadeviewer-demo-mac-ja" seems to think that ANY "Manual" file indicates a hit.

Hi, thanks for the report.
The detection for Shade Viewer searched for just a file named "Manual". Many Amiga games contain an identically named file, that's why they were detected as possible variants.
Now the detection also checks for an additional file that is exclusive to Shade Viewer.

I just tested adding the game using ScummVM 2.6.1 but I'm still getting the same error. Which version of ScummVM will contain the fix for this?

The fix is in the development branch, and will be included in version 2.7.0
If you want, you can download a daily build
