ITE: Mac CD Talkie version Bin files not recognised

Game: Inherit the Earth

Description

I have used HFV Explorer as requested, after having
significant difficulty in finding an actual download for it,
and managed to read my game cd on my xp system.

One thing i noticed, as i looked through some of the
CVS changelogs, is you have removed the RAW
support for the game data files and are just sticking with
the Mac Binary support.

Fair enough, but when I chose to drag and drop the 5
critical resource files, not including the 6th resource
named "About", it gave me a list of options. Raw, root
forked, a few others and most importantly Mac Binary 2.

I successfully copied the data using Mac Binary 2 and
into *.Bin files.

I put them in a directory named Graphic
Adventures/Misc/ITE and tried to add it as a scummvm
game but it didn't recognise anything at all.

It said to use Mac Binary on www.scummvm.org and to
use the HFV Explorer tool that the site gave reference
too but the only binary copy method was Mac Binary 2.

There was no Mac Binary 1 or Mac Binary.

What version of HFV Explorer was scummvm.org
refering to? Was it 1.3.1 or a much earlier version.

Apart from a BUG, the only logical reason I can see for
why scummvm didnt recognise the Bin files is that they
were in a newer Binary format that scummvm may not
support yet.

Inherit the Earth is probably one of my most Beloved
games and the fact I can still play it on my latest
systems means a great deal to me and millions of
others. I hope theres a solution soon.

Cheers.

Please, add it manually (edit scummvm.ini file) and provide
md5s if it will print them out in console window.

which version are you talking about Wyrmkeep Mac OS X
rerelease or old Dreamers' Guild German Macc OS 9 release?

For newer version you need to copy just data fork and not in
Mac binary format.
