#7443 closed feature request

Play different games w/o exiting ScummVM

Reported by: SF/dpolsrod Owned by: SF/cpage88
Priority: normal Component: GUI
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


What I'd like is a way to play the different games without having to restart ScummVM after each game. Like when I quit a game or the game is finished, it could go back to the game selection screen.

I guess this could implemented safely in the following way:

1) start another instance of scummvm 2) then terminate this one

since scummvm starts up quite fast it would look as if the execution wouldn't end; and since everything is initialized again there should be no unexpected behaviour with allocated memory (leaks) or weird variable values

I'd like to see this feature too for ScummVM! It should make debugging custom translations (which is kind of my thing now) much less pain :)

It was finally implemented by Chris Page during GSoC 2008. Thus I'm closing it now.
