#7651 closed enhancement (fixed)

KYRA (and others?): give full path when wrong datafile ver.

Description

Now and then people are not able to start engines which require datafiles because the datafiles are outdated (I've only seen this with KYRA.DAT since this file changes quite often still). People will try to download an updated version, but since often an older version still exists somewhere on the system the game still won't start.

For the sake of usability it would probably be a good idea to include the path to the incorrect KYRA.DAT in the error message.

for an example of such a support request see http://forums.scummvm.org/viewtopic.php?t=6055&highlight= - post by CrisGer on Aug 08 6:25pm

Actually I don't think we can do that with the current code, at least Common::File does not have any support for querying the real path.

Should be obsolete now, that all kyra.dat entries in the user paths are searched for being the correct version.

Thus closing this entry.
