#2257 closed defect (invalid)

Zak FM-Towns: no longer playable

Reported by: SF/simsaw Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Zak McKracken


When I'm trying to start my Zak FM version that I've added in a previous version ScummVM crashes. I'm also unable to add the game to the list since the little list which was before there now is another one - a very big one with - it seems to me - Humengous Scumm games and there is no Zak FM to select! This change has been made in a version in the middle of August I guess. I hope you can fix this until the next release.

To process your bug report appropriately, we need you to provide the following additional information:

* ScummVM version (PLEASE test the latest CVS/Daily build) * Bug details, including instructions on reproducing it * Language of game (English, German, ...) * Version of game (talkie, floppy, ...) * Platform and Compiler (Win32, Linux, MacOS, ...) * Attach a save game if possible * If this bug only occurred recently, please note the last version without the bug, and the first version including the bug. That way we can fix it quicker by looking at the changes made.

This should only take you a little time but will make it much easier for us to process your bug report in a way that satisfies both you and us.

Thank you for your support!

(I'm certainly seeing no detection problems with zakTowns, and
my old target updated successfully to the new name)

Most probably it's YAFT (yet another fan translation). That's why I need more info.

Well, you're probably right. I have corrected some spelling mistakes and so on from the German version. I thought it generally wouldn't work because mine didn't work. Sorry for that. Is there no way to put this game back to the select list?

So as I expected it's not a bug. Closing,

add manually target_md5=xxx to your zak entry in scummvm.ini file. xxx is md5 of original unpatched version. That will be override computed md5.
