#218 closed defect (invalid)

descumm doesn't work --- unportable C code?

Reported by: SF/divide Owned by: SF/ender
Priority: normal Component: Tools
Keywords: Cc:


Are the descumms working? I tried descumm5
against mi1, descumm6 against dott, and both
say 'Unknown script type!' Maybe there is a
non-portability bug in the source, because it
complaints about multi-character character
constants during the compilation. Are such
constants supported by ANSI (or at least GNU)

Or maybe I just call descumm in a wrong way,
but I tried it with all the lfls and lecs, with
same effects.

You need to run descumm against EXTRACTED scripts, not
against whole data files.

Scripts can be extracted with either ScummREV under Windows
or Wine - or by creating a 'dumps' directory in your game
directory and waiting for scummvm to dump the script files

These type of questions are best asked in the mailing list
or forums, please don't file a bug unless you've checked
your usage first.
