#293 closed defect

game CDs given with old mac don't work

Reported by: (none) Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Port: Mac OS X
Keywords: Cc:


I use the version 0.2.0 of scumvm on MacOS X 10.1.4.
I can't play with the following games:
- Sam & Max
- Full Throttle
- Day of the Tentacle
For all of them I have a CD version in frensh, that was
part of the software package given with the Performa
6400 (and some other Apple computer) in 1995.
When I try to use scumvm with them I get the message
Error(0:0:0x0): Cannot find samnmax.000 (or ft.la0 or
And effectivly I don't have this file on the CD. I have
only one data file for each game wich are called "Sam &
Max data", "Full Throttle data" and "Day Of the
Tentacle data".
I suppose my versions of these games are too recents
but is it planned to support them ?

They are supported, but you have to do some extra work to get
the files extracted from the CD. There is a "rescumm" tool that
allows exactly this.

In case you have the Apple developer tools installed you can
compile it yourself, it is in the "tools" module in our CVS. If not, I
can make a binary for you (should be only a few kilobytes) and
send it to you

Thank you. I got the file, it compiles without any problem
and it seems to work.
