Copied all 2 CDs content in a directory, I can add it in ScummVM but it refuses to start. My CD version is for DOS, in French, and labelled as "Version 1.2". Here is the debug log of ScummVM :

User picked target 't7g' (gameid 'groovie')... Looking for a plugin supporting this gameid...

Thank you for your bug report, however some information is missing which will be needed in order to investigate this bug:

Operating System / Platform Version of ScummVM

I would also suggest checking and testing with all the required datafiles in one directory to see if this fixes your observed issues.

comment:2 by (none), 13 years ago

OS : Debian Linux Version : 1.3.0

All the files are in the same directory as instructed.

OK. Can you perform the following actions to help work out the cause of this: 1. Attach a MD5sums list of your datafiles as a text file to this bug. 2. Try removing and re-adding the game entry in the ScummVM launcher. 2. Try running as scummvm -d 10 and attach the debug console/log output as a text file. 3. Please can you test with the latest development build from or by building from latest Git master source from (I'm assuming that you know how to do git clone, ./configure && make as you are using Linux).
