LOOM FMTOWNS: demo mode activated

Reported by: SF/jellby Owned by: Kirben
Priority: low Component: Engine: SCUMM
Keywords: script Cc:
Game: Loom

Description

When I start the game (loomtowns) with --copy-protection, it
automatically starts in demo mode (I get no chance to give the secret
weave). If I start with --no-copy-protection it works fine. Other
versions of Loom work fine, too.

isn't the copy protection supposed to be based in the kanji
that you're supposed to read with the red glasses in one of
the books that come with the game?

Whatever it is, there's no chance to enter it. The game starts directly with "Incorrect secret weave, entering demo mode" (maybe not the exact words).

Unassigning, as I don't own this game and have no ideas on
the issue.

Are you sure the original game actually shows the copy
protection screen ? can you try with FM Towns emulator
(Unz) ?
I thought all FM Towns versions used some kind of CD checks
instead.

The original doesn't show the copy protection screen, I
confirmed with two people who had run game under Unz (FM
Towns emulator).
