PUTTTIME: MAC/Dutch CD not recognized

Game: Putt-Putt Travels Through Time


I have a dutch Mac CD with the
Putt-Putt Travels Through Time game. The MD5
codes are not in the list on the website, so I will
include them here:

Putt-Putt Travels Through Time (PuttTime)
Putt-Putt De reis door de tijd
Macintosh Version
fcb78ebecab2757264c590890c319cc5 PuttTijd (0)
17bbe788fbec3a26131c3e18f471fa08 PuttTijd (1)
c9cd15cbd41dd7b98c7119463b96e07a PuttTijd (2)
d54cd3276ce26d9b51aa2ef264912ab3 PuttTijd (4)

I use:
ScummVM 0.9.0 build Jul 12, 2006
Platform: Mac OS X 10.4.7

The PC-version of these files where already included in
ScummVM, but as these filenames are different, these
are still not recognized.

I added the game details to ScummVM SVN, use the next
snapshot of ScummVM SVN.

The game is recognized when added, when started, drops into
console with the following error:
ERROR: Cannot read resource

The MacosX console contains the following lines:
Using configuration file:
/Users/d/Library/Preferences/ScummVM Preferences
Looking for putttime
Trying to start game 'Putt-Putt Travels Through Time'
Cannot read resource

I have not tried the PC-version as I don't have a PC at

Using: ScummVM svn 0.10.0svn (2 sept 2006 18:46:19)
On Mac OS X 10.4.7 tried both PPC & Universal versions

The PC and Macintosh versions share the exact same data
files (Although filenames are different), and the PC
version was reported to work in the past.

So could your data files be corrupt in this case?

Of course I could have made mistakes, so I checked the
Verified the CD, I copied all files to harddisk without any
error, I made new MD5-numbers of the copied files, they are
exactly the same as the ones mentioned above.
I checked if the freshly copied files would play on my Mac,
used the last ScummVM 0.10.0SVN from 9-9-2006. They show
exactly the same errors.

I had the luck tonight to lay my hands on a Windows XP SP2
machine. So I repeated the above checks, with exactly the
same results. Even the error in ScummVM 0.10.0SVN (sep 9
2006 13:59:48) for Windows was exactly the same: ERROR
Cannot read resource

Then, I tried to run the program on CD itself under Windows
XP SP2, and it just worked. By the way, the mac version also
works OK under system 8.1 but that does not run on my PM G4.

So, to me it seems that the problem lays in ScummVM, can't
tell you if it worked before, as I only started to use
ScummVM from the 0.9 release.
Please let me know if there is anything I could check/test
to find out what is going wrong.
I hope you are not offended by the fact that I assume the
problem to lay within ScummVM. I really appreciate your work
and wished I could do more than just test a few games.
Thank you very much.

Try starting ScummVM via command line with a debug level of
10 and report the last few lines before the error. ie:
scummvm -d10 putttime

comment:9 by SF/daniel9, 13 years ago

Okay, that gives some more information... I can attach the whole log but as
you said, only the last few lines would do:

getResourceAddress(Buffer,4) == NULL
getResourceAddress(Buffer,4) == 0x2877e04
getResourceAddress(Buffer,1) == 0x6605004
getResourceAddress(Buffer,2) == 0x15e1694
getResourceAddress(Buffer,3) == 0x15e16a4

Tested on: Mac G4, MacOS X 10.4.7, ScummVM 0.10.0svn (Sept 13 2006)
(universal build for PPC & Intel)

I updated the HE version for the game, please try the
next snapshot of ScummVM SVN and report your results to
this bug report.

comment:11 by SF/daniel9, 13 years ago

YES! This one works as well.
Played it for quite a while.
