Description

Using ScummVM 2.6.0 (Jul 17 2022 00:04:49)
I am running this on a Dell Latitude E5540, Windows 7
Puppet Motel Uses Quicktime. I attempted to add it and run it from the original CD from the CD-Rom drive, D:

I can provide you a zip file made from the original CD for analysis.

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

This is Director 5-based game. D5 support is in a very very preliminary state, and we haven't declare it as supported. Closing this report for now.
