$ scummvm -v Switched to configuration /home/tillea/.scummvmrc ScummVM 0.6.1b (Aug 6 2004 12:49:49) Features compiled in: Vorbis MP3 ALSA zLib MPEG2
on a Debian GNU/Linux system.
I have bought a box containing German versions of Ind 3/4/5 and Monkey Island 1/2/3. While Indy 3+4 and Monkey 1+2 work perfectly I'm completely unable to play Monkey 3 (Comi).
At first I want to stress that the CD does not contain a file comi.la1 as it is mentioned at http://www.scummvm.org/documentation.php?view=datafiles
Furthermore it has a Windows installer which claims to need DirectX. Because this is kind of unusual for me for ScummVM games I wonder whether the authors of this CD did some change which causes the problem.
What did I tried:
1. Mount the playable CD of Comi. Start scummvm. Add this directory. Comi was detected correctly (except of the language which I adjusted to German manually).
ScummVm window says: Cannot find file: `comi.la1` Insert disc i into drive /m/cdrom Prss OK to retry, Quit to exit
On console I've got the following message: Switched to configuration /home/andreas/.scummvmrc Looking for comi Trying to start game 'The Curse of Monkey Island' Cannot find file: 'comi.la1'
and the ScummVM went into debug mode immediately
2. I copied the files comi.la and resource/font[0-4].nut to my harddisk. When I started scummvm in this directory it was missing the file comi.001 and did not start. Once I made good experiences with "Sam & Max" where I only had these *.la[0-2] named files to place a symlink comi.000 -> comi.la0 comi.001 -> comi.la2 This ended in a different message on console
ScummVM 0.6.1b (Aug 6 2004 12:49:49) Console is ready Debugger started, type `exit` to return to the game. Type `help` to see a lttle list of commands and variables. ERROR: (87:1:0xFBF): room 87 not in room 87 at 0+8 in file comi.001
and then ScummVM went into debug mode again. Any command in the debug window caused an exit of the scummvm.
How can I circumvent this problems? Which further information do you need?
Kind regards and thanks for programming ScummVM
