LB: Unrecognised version of lbsampler

Reported by: SF/afholman Owned by: fuzzie
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Mohawk
Version: Keywords: detection
Cc: Game:


I have an unrecognised version of the Living Book sampler files. The files were contained on my copy of "Arthur's Teacher Trouble", in a separate mhk directory (the arthur files were in a data directory). The Arthur's Teacher Trouble files were matched by one of the already available checksums; th sampler files were not.

The version of scummvm tested was: ScummVM 1.4.0git617-gbc2e770-dirty (May 29 2011 22:01:25) Features compiled in: Vorbis FLAC MP3 ALSA SEQ TiMidity RGB zLib

This was compiled by myself under Debian sid, amd64.

There was a single outline file, "outline" for the sampler.

The game is a CD version.

The initial portion of outline is as follows: -------------------------------------------------------------- BookInfo] nPages="16" nLanguages="1" xRes="640" yRes="480" nColors=256 title="Living Books 16 Product Sampler" copyright="©1997, Broderbund Software, Inc. All rights reserved." ScreenCopyright="©1997, Broderbund Software, Inc." ;optional configuration info fDebugWindow=0 fNeedPalette=true fUse254ColorPalette=true nColors=256

[Languages] Language1="English"


I was able to get the game up and playing the title screen by adding the following stanza to scummvm/engines/mohawk/detection_tables.h:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- { { "lbsampler", "v3", AD_ENTRY1("outline", "8397cea6bed1ff90029f7602ef37684d"), Common::EN_ANY, Common::kPlatformWindows, ADGF_NO_FLAGS, Common::GUIO_NONE }, GType_LIVINGBOOKSV3, 0, "Living Books Sampler" },


I have not delved into the meaning of the entries in the struct; I made the changes above by inference and trial from other entries in the detection_tables.h file.

After the title screen has played, I get the following error:

"found @ in string '@eval(UpdatePage)', not supported yet!"

I presume this is because support for version 3 Living Books game is not complete yet?

Yes, the @eval is v3 scripting, it probably won't work for a while.

Added entry (marked as unstable) in r8ff61cd. The game is not working, as mentioned, so closing this one (after having spoken with fuzzie and clone2727)
