Description

The game in 'Raumschiff' seems to be an unknown game variant.

Please report the following data to the ScummVM team at https://bugs.scummvm.org/ along with the name of the game you tried to add and its version, language, etc.:

Matched game IDs for the gob engine: adi5-win-de

This is the initial German big box release of Addy (which also doesn't include a Mac version). It seems to be version 5.01, see http://medienarchiv.digitalimagecorp.de/Optisch/Spiele%20-%20PC/Addy50KidsMatheKlasse34BoxCD1.cue-iso9660-joliet.xml for a directory listing. (As always the base program is identical for all subjects & grades as long as they are the same version.)

From where the version exactly come from?

BTW, currently we only collect these so called DEV7 games in our detection tables, they are actually not supported by ScummVM, due to the reason the use an newer version of the Engine and Script System which is not yet implemented.

could you also tell me about the version number of the main executable called Loader7.exe?

I'm sorry for the outdated link, I've moved the educational games to another directory meanwhile. The file listing can be found in http://medienarchiv.digitalimagecorp.de/Optisch/Anwendungen%20-%20Lernspiele/Addy50KidsMatheKlasse12BoxCD1.cue-iso9660-joliet.xml now.

Replying to BJNFNE:

It says so on the Autostart screen ("ADDY5 5.01 installieren"), and the disc itself contains the (empty) file AexxD501.cd1.

The later 5.04 Hybrid Windows / Mac release additionally has the version number printed on the disc itself.

Yes, I'm aware of that - but I've seen that other variants were submitted already.

It doesn't seem to have one. For the Keep Case release I can see "1.1.0.0", but for the original box release I couldn't find any version information embedded in the binary.


To summarize: From what I can see so far there have been two 5.0 versions available in Germany:

Version 5.01 games were released in 2001 in a big box and only contained a Windows version.

In 2003 the games were re-released in Version 5.04. This time the packaging is a Keep Case, and the installation disc contains both Mac and Windows versions.

I should add that the 5.01 box claims that there would be Mac versions of the games available "from autumn 2001". However these two versions I just mentioned are the only ones I've seen so far.
