#7227 closed feature request

Export function and snapshots in debug

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


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 requests.
