#7593 closed feature request (wontfix)

missing game file: inappropriate error message

Reported by: SF/danielsoft Owned by: sev-
Priority: normal Component: --Other--
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


I tried to run ScummVM on a directory with the "I have no mouth and I must scream" game. I forgot to copy one of the needed files from the game CD ROM.

However, ScummVM gave me an error message "Your game version appears to be unknown." followed by checksum codes. I expected, that I need to report unsupported checksums and I have done so in this tracker.

IMHO, the ScummVm should in this case say "Missing file:" or something like that, instead of the error it gave me.

There is no way to do that as there could potentially exist games with any set of files. So we can't tell whether it is just a supported game with file(s) missing or completely new variant with different file set.
