Hello, can you provide more details on the version of your game:

  • Which languages does it support?
  • What is its release format? (eg. Digital Distribution from GOG/Steam/other, or a physical CD retail)
  • Is this the original version of the game or has modifications and patches applied (eg. fan made subtitles patch)?

Hello. Thanks for your reply.

The release format ist the digital distribution from The unmodified install of the game runs fine with ScummVM 2.7.1.

I applied this German patch to the Game:

After applying the patch, it didn't work anymore with ScummVM.

I just ran across the same issue with the GOG version of the original Broken Sword (the extra install of the original release, not the Director's Cut itself). I followed the installation instructions on, including renaming the two speech files (they were named with .clv extension for some reason).
