scummvm doesn't start without glide supporting system
|Reported by:||SF/logicdeluxe||Owned by:||Kirben|
Windows version I downloaded on 17-june-2003. No matter what parameters I add to scummvm.exe I get the error: "gd error (glide): _GlideInitEnvironment: glide2x.dll expected Voodoo Graphics, none detected". Sorry, the "-v" parameter isn't working either. I suspect this is since there is no more separate scummvmgl.exe in the package. The problem might be occour because I have removed the Voodoo 1 Board from my PC, so I tried removing that file glide2x.dll, too. But then, I get the error message: "Die erforderliche .DLL-Datei GLIDE2X.DLL wurde nicht gefunden." which translates to English: "The required .DLL file GLIDE2X.DLL was not found."
Please don't force people installing the entire OS from scatch. You should just check for glide supporting hardware, and if there is no such hardware, just don't use it. (Software renderer would probably much less usefull than the excellent ScummVM's build in filters anyway.) An option in scummvm.ini and a command line parameter for explicitely don't use glide should be existing as well.
