Description

Hello,
I just tried to launch "Jewels of the Oracle" with ScummVM git code from today (4 february 2023).
The game does not work for the moment:

  • black screen
  • I can hear audio, I can see my cursor as an arrow, then it crashed.
  • the game is detected by ScummVM only as a demo instead of the full game?

I joined you a log.

On this precedent report, rvanlaar scummvm dev explained me that this game needs external dll?

@legluodunet: As @rvanlaar indicated on the older ticket, the required XObjects for this game are not implemented.

The wiki at https://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php?title=Director/Games lists the required ones for Jewels of the Oracle as:
"CURSOR, CATPLAYR, MAPNAV, MovieIDx, MemCheck"

The implemented xlibs for the ScummVM director engine can be found here:
https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/tree/master/engines/director/lingo/xlibs

It appears that _none_ of these have been currently implemented or even stubbed, so you can either wait for the Director developers to get to these or look at implementing these yourself and submitting a Pull Request.
