Please, tell us more about this version. Is this an original release, digital re-release, fan-translated?


comment:2 by rpluem, 8 months ago

All I can tell is that it is an original release from the time when the game became available in Germany. But it is not a translated version. The whole game is in English.

Applying the below patch allowed me to test the game and it seems to work fine. I am well aware that this is not the correct fix as you would likely add an additional element to the GAME_DESCRIPTIONS array.

  • engines/ultima/detection_tables.h

    diff --git a/engines/ultima/detection_tables.h b/engines/ultima/detection_tables.h
    index e9df23a8b72..2e8b2f3bab3 100644
    a b static const UltimaGameDescription GAME_DESCRIPTIONS[] = {  
    120120                {
    121121                        "ultima6",
    122122                        0,
    123                         AD_ENTRY1s("converse.a", "5065716423ef1389e3f7b4946d815c26", 162615),
     123                        AD_ENTRY1s("converse.a", "ee22a6ac3964f9ff11a48fcb3f4a9389", 162458),
    124124                        Common::EN_ANY,

Doing the same for the enhanced version results in a smaller picture. Hence I guess my version is not enhanced (as I suspected).
