#2292 closed defect (wontfix)

LOOM CD: Cannot find file: '00.lfl'

Reported by: SF/nikioko Owned by: sev-
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Loom


This is the message I encounter when using ScummVM
0.8.0 on the Loom CD version which is patched with the
German subtitle patch from
Version 0.7.1 worked out fine which this patch, and the
unpatched version of Loom works under ScummVM
0.8.0 as well.
But I get the patched version running by adding the
following line to the scummvm.ini:

It would be nice if further versions of ScummVM could
again support the patched edition without manually
adding this line as it was until version 0.7.1.-

Just checked it. Works for me. There _was_ bug which
prevented it from working, but it was a week ago or more.
Make sure you're using latest CVS build, not just 0.8.0.

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 just downloaded and tried the latest daily snapshot, and the
problem still exists.

scummvm.ini see as attached. Please note that the line
target_md5=5D88B9D6A88E6F8E90CDED9D01B7F082 has
been inserted manually which made the game run.

content of the LOOM directory:

Output WITHOUT the added line:

After adding the line
target_md5=5D88B9D6A88E6F8E90CDED9D01B7F082 the
game just works out fine. And as I heard, there is the same
problem with the patches for the FM towns games.

I don't understand what made me so blind and not notice that
you say that it _works_ for you with target_md5 added. We
have no means on reverting that sorry. Mainly because
translation teams continue fix bugs in their translations
and md5 changes often. That was the reason why we decided to
meet their needs and add that taget_md5 configuration key.

So sorry, it will not be back. And besides you will have to
add that line just _once_ when you run your game for the
first time. Later, even after translation upgrade it will
still work. That's not a big deal even for computer
illiterate. Tranlsation teams should provide clear
insturctions on their sites or even put some brains into
their installation programs, so that could be done
automagically. Not a big deal either.

Rejected. Wont Fix.
