BACKENDS: 3DS: AGS games not starting on daily dev builds

Reported by: Chuckaluphagus Owned by: lephilousophe
Priority: normal Component: Port: 3DS
Version: Keywords: AGS
Cc: Game:


ScummVM version
ScummVM latest Branch Master (2024-01-10),

Bug details
I copied "scummvm.3dsx" to "/3ds" on my SD card. I installed The Blackwell Legacy via Steam, then copied the following files to "/ScummVM Games/Blackwell Legacy":

Blackwell Legacy.ags

I ran ScummVM via the Homebrew Launcher, then added the game to my library. When I tapped "Start", I received the error message, "Could not find any engine capable of running the selected game"

Language of game

Version of game
Steam, updated 2024-01-08

Your OS, including version and device if appropriate
New Nintendo 3DS XL, Sys. 11.17.0-50U, Luma 13.0.2

Attach a save game if possible
No save game

If this bug only occurred recently, please note the last version without the bug, and the first version including the bug.
If I go through the same steps with ScummVM 2.70, the game will load. The in-game graphics are distorted and unusable (they're only partially visible, and squashed to the left side of the screens), and I can't seem to do anything other than exit back to the ScummVM launcher.

Oh, and please let me know if there's anything you'd like me to test, or try out. Thank you for your time.

Hi, thanks for the report. I changed the title because this seems to be a generalized problem, I tried another game (Maniac Mansion Deluxe) and it shows the same error.
There's also an issue in GUI, the per-game options should show the language combobox and the override checkboxes but these don't appear in the 3DS port.
