Please read the instructions on how to submit a bug next time :-)

For now, please tell us what version of ScummVM you are using. Also, what version of Sam&Max is this? English or another language? Talkie or non-talkie? Did you convert the monster.sou file into monster.so3 ? Etc.

I'm going to take a wild guess here. Your running the game from within a read-only partition/disk, arn't you? this will not work, as Sam and Max creates a temporary save-game before the "intermission" screen.

Samnmax version 4.6.2 its english from a cd , when i run with scumm its text and voice. Also no iam not running from read only source. I copyed all the samnmax files from cd to hd. then copyed scummvm to same folder then run it that way. Btw saved games dont stay when i click f5, and do save , i click f5 to load it and its gone, Im running latest verision of scummvm, and no i havnt converted the monster file...

The fact saved games do not 'save' is indicitive that you do NOT have write access in that directory, as I said below.

If you need help troubleshooting your linux install and/or directory permissions, it might be easiest for you to jump on #scummvm on, and I'll help you directly.

As suspected, user didn't have write access to the cwd.
