#3713 closed defect (invalid)

PQ1: Couldn't find game

Reported by: SF/smerik Owned by: Kirben
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGI
Keywords: detection Cc:
Game: Police Quest 1



Game : Police Quest 1 - VGA
Version : Police Quest(R) Collection - (PQ 1-4)
Language: English
Platform: Win32


0.11.1 (Feb 24 2008 12:46:21)
0.12.0svn (Apr 30 2008 10:27:14)


After installing the game with the CD menu, I started ScummVM. Then I chose 'Add Game...' and selected the following directory:
'F:\Sierra\Police Quest Collection(TM)\pq1_vga\'
When clicking the 'Choose' button, ScummVM fails to find Police Quest I: In Pursuit of the Death Angel.
I attached a file with the filenames listed in the installation directory.


The default Sierra menu uses DOSBox v0.63 to run this game.

ScummVM only supports the AGI versions of Sierra's adventure games, and that is the updated SCI version of Police Quest 1. So closing as invalid.

Try using dosbox instead.
