SIMON2: not running (CVS and stable version!!!)

Reported by: SF/simsaw Owned by: Kirben
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGOS
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Simon the Sorcerer 2


When I'm trying to run my version of Simon 2 the message window just displays unknown version. But I checked before the md5 of gamepc and the message window shows it completely DIFFERENT as it was shown by my program. So a md5 error in ScummVM?

Anyway, I would prefer if you would switch on again the support for third pary versions, but PLEASE this time without target_md5.

I encountered this with German DOS Talkie.

The game detection method of Simon engine was recently changed, requiring details for all versions.

ScummVM only checks the md5 checksums of the first 5000 bytes of each file, to reduce the amount of file access on startup.

If you provide the details reported by ScummVM on unmodified versions of Simon 1 or Simon 2 , they will be added to ScummVM. Be sure to mention the version (DOS or Windows) and language of each game too.

The only known complete fan translation of Simon 1 & Simon 2 is Russian, which we already provide some support for.
