A question. Do this same game data get recognised on your desktop?

comment:2 by SF/youngbilly, 5 years ago

Hi - yes, it works fine. The GOG version starts DOSBOX. I've tried clean installs of the game and recopying the GOG unpacked game folder a few times, plus the last couple of days of ScummVM builds. Same result.

Apologies if I misunderstood - the game works with daily build for Windows on my PC but not with the ARM build on my mobile. Same game folder.

OK - LordHoto on the forum says 'the Android daily build does not include ZVision. It is missing the FreeType2 dependency which is (set as) required for ZVision.'

So, the actual issue is that FreeType2 isn't available on the Android port. Assigning this to fuzzie

Owner: changed from fuzzie to csnover

This is not a ScummVM defect but a limitation of the old build system which will be addressed with the new Buildbot, which includes a FreeType library for Android.

FreeType is now installed on the Buildbot for both ARMv5 and AArch64, as mentioned in https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/pull/1278. It's still missing on x86 and Ouya, though.
