#3959 closed defect (fixed)

KYRA: Kyra.dat is not search in all dirs anymore

Reported by: SF/dwedit Owned by: lordhoto
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Kyra
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


Currently, ScummVM requires you to make a copy of Kyra.dat in each directory containing the game. This is stupid. ScummVM should be able to also look in its application directory to see if Kyra.dat is present there (which has been the case for several releases), and use that copy instead.

This is temporary & known regression in trunk, actually. We are working on this, and it will be fixed long before the next release, no worries :). In fact, the plan is to improve the behavior: In old ScummVM versions, it would always use the first kyra.dat it finds. In the future, it will look at all kyra.dat's it use, and look for one with the right version. That should help people who have multiple kyra.dat files floating around.

I'll keep this open as a reminder in the bug tracker, just to make sure it won't be forgotten.

I didn't know ScummVM looked in the current directory. I've been using the "extra path" for kyra.dat, sky.cpt, etc.
