Description

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"

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)
