SAMDEMO.SM1 - 1,090 KB

comment:3 by sev-, 13 years ago

This version is unknown to us. Do you know where it comes
from? Also can you put it somewhere for download, i.e. just
for one or 2 downloads, not permanently? I've put
recongition of this version to SVN, so, please, try next
daily build. It may complain about unknown md5, please,
provide that.

comment:4 by SF/scummman, 13 years ago

As far as I know, it's the same as the interactive DOS demo
that is available in the game demos section of

The installed resource files are identical.

comment:5 by sev-, 13 years ago

No. That one from LEC site is known for ages. It has file
SNMDEMO.001. Note difference in file extension.
Alternatively, please, provide md5s for all below mentioned
game data files. To compute md5 under windows use program
linked from MD5 page at Wikipedia.

comment:6 by SF/scummman, 13 years ago

Actually, if you install the demo, you will see that the
files are in fact identical. I wasn't reffering to
SNMDEMO.001. That is prior to installation.

comment:7 by SF/scummman, 13 years ago

Hmm, this is interesting. This demo seems to work fine in
the last stable release (0.8.2).

comment:8 by sev-, 13 years ago

No, that archive contains SNMDEMO.SM0/SM1, not
SAMDEMO.SM0/SM1 like in your version.

comment:9 by SF/scummman, 13 years ago

Oh, I'm sorry. I'm wrong in that regard. That was a typo. I
have SNMDEMO.SMO/SM1, so it is the same version. It works in
0.8.2, but not in the latest SVN build. Therefore, something
must have been broken between then and now.

comment:10 by SF/scummman, 13 years ago

Just a small addition. It doesn't seem to matter whether
they are named SNMDEMO.SM0/SM1 or SAMDEMO.SM0/SM1 in 0.8.2.
I think ScummVM only looks at the file extension.

comment:11 by fingolfin, 13 years ago

Actually, we fixed the issue with SAMDEMO.SM0 today (Kirben did that, I think,
maybe in response to your prior forum posting). So try a fresh daily build
tomorrow, hopefully it'll work there.
