#482 closed defect (invalid)

Commandline Help not showing

Reported by: SF/kirschsaft Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: GUI
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


Normally when I execute ScummVM without any commandline parameters it will show a help with the parameters explained. Today I tried the new cvs branch the first time and it doesn't show anything. Neither the help text nor any other text (e.g. the version if executed with "-v").. The only thing that happens is that I see a window flashing over my screen. It does parse the parameters correctly.

I'm using Mingw (gcc 3.2) as compiler under Win2k.

This is not really a bug. What should happen when you run the game w/ o any options is that the launcher dialog shows up. If you only get a window flashing over your screen, that's definitly wrong. What backend are you using?

comment:2 by SF/kirschsaft, 22 years ago

I'm using the SDL backend.

The launcher works, but only if you have a scummvm.ini. But what in my opinion is very strange is that there is absolutely no text output to the console. I'm directly back at the command prompt with scummvm running in its window..

That it went back directly to the prompt was due to another bug in the code. Does this still occur with a current build?

bug is still there, no help is displayed.

comment:7 by fingolfin, 22 years ago

Of course help is displayed. If you use invalid parameters, e.g. "scummvm -h" it will display help. If you give no parameters, it'll run the launcher. Just as it is meant to.

Now, if for some reasons it doesn't run the launcher GUI for you, that'd be a bug.
