Oh, and the Mac demo for Freddi1 should go up the list, for consistence.

I knew I'd find something ;) :D :)))

I added the details for the Macintosh version, use the current Windows snapshot of ScummVM.

comment:4 by SF/joachimeberhard, 14 years ago

Hi kirben

This is the error it produces:

Looking for jungle Trying to start game 'Let's Explore the Jungle with Buzzy' (0:1:0x63): Resource fork is missing in file 'The Jungle'

comment:5 by Kirben, 14 years ago

Choose 'MacBinary' when copying the 'The Jungle' from the CD, since ScummVM requires the resource fork.

comment:6 by SF/joachimeberhard, 14 years ago

Well, when I choose MacBinary, I end up with all *.bin files, no file more, no file less, and it doesn't help much.

Instead, I think the problem is the missing .he3 file in the Mac version.

It seems that this file is somehow incorporated into the The Jungle (1) file, since it is a little bit larger in the Mac version (around 20K).

Look at the md5s, you see only the first files differ.

Maybe this could be a lead...

comment:7 by Kirben, 14 years ago

The resources for the mouse cursors are stored in the main executable files (ie 'The Jungle') in the early Macintosh version of HE games, which is why there are no *.HE3 files.

Just to be sure, you did copy the 'The Jungle' file from the CD too? as I noticed it was not listed in initial report.

comment:8 by SF/joachimeberhard, 14 years ago

Yes, I copied the main executable in the first place, I just didn't copy/paste it.

So here goes:

The Jungle

comment:9 by SF/joachimeberhard, 14 years ago

With "didn't copy/paste it" I mean I didn't copy/paste the md5 in here, in this report.

comment:10 by SF/joachimeberhard, 14 years ago

Ok, when I copy only the file "The Jungle" as MacBinary, rename the "The Jungle.bin" to "The Jungle" and overwrite the "datafork" version, this particular problem goes away.

However now it exits with claiming jungle.he9 is missing, although I have "The Jungle (9)" in the datafork version in the folder...

comment:11 by SF/joachimeberhard, 14 years ago

This is the correct md5 of the executable, copied in MacBinary:

The Jungle

comment:12 by Kirben, 14 years ago

Could you please provide a debug level 9 log, to help track down the cause of this issue. ie scummvm -d9 jungle > jungle.txt

comment:13 by SF/joachimeberhard, 14 years ago

The Jungle Mac works somehow now, but I haven't changed anything, just using the latest build now.

Maybe I just didn't download the latest build at that time.

As there is a bugreport regarding the game detection issue, I file the following game detection related bugreport there too, so you may close this bugreport.

Oh, and another thing: using scummvm -d9 >jungle.txt and playing it for 5 minutes, I ended up with a 122MB file ;) I hope you don't expect me to upload it ;) :D

There is a game detection related bug with the Jungle Mac version, as the oldest HE Games show the Windows part of the CD on the Mac part also. That means, that when I copy everything in the Mac fork of the CD to a folder on my harddisk, it contains the Windows and the Mac version of the game.

Coosing and starting the Windows version in the launcher results in the following error:

ERROR: (0:1:0x63): The Jungle: not a Windows library

All md5s match the Windows version, which works fine in a seperate folder.

comment:15 by Kirben, 14 years ago

Closing, since we will not support multiple games in a single directory, especially in the case of HE games.

It is really unfortunate that the Macintosh and Windows versions are mixed in this case, but people will have to copy the data files over manually.
