#7227 closed enhancement

Export function and snapshots in debug

Reported by: (none) Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Screenshots
Keywords: Cc:


If possible, is there anyway to save snapshots of
what is currently on the screen? If you could possibly
do so, I would like that.

Also, and export feature in the debugger. Lets say
you are in room 1 of Zak McKracken, and you want
to export the background, you should have a function
that will allow you to do that. The same for the
costume files, only the costume files will be
precompiled already. and since youhave a script
decompiler, maybe you can have something export
the raw script out of the game.

Dumping is easy. Recompile ScummVM with the
DUMP_SCRIPTS define, and make a subdirectory
called 'dumps'. All game files will be dumped in that directory
as they are used.

This requires a recompile as it is a developer-only feature. We
assume that people who are unable to compile it do not have
the tools to decompile the game data anyway.

A screenshot feature sounds look a good idea, I'll look into it.

Dumping things which are not scripts is possible by modifying the
ScummVM source. But we probably won't supporting it as a
regular feature, ever, as it's simply not part of ScummVM's goal
(namely to allow the user to play old Scumm games).

Screen shot function has already be requested in other feature
