[2017-04-29 12:48:46] The game in 'D:\path\to\KingsQuest7\' seems to be unknown.
[2017-04-29 12:48:46] Please, report the following data to the ScummVM team along with name
[2017-04-29 12:48:46] of the game you tried to add and its version, language, etc.:
[2017-04-29 12:48:46]

[2017-04-29 12:48:46] {"resource.000", 0, "4948e4e1506f1e1c4e1d47abfa06b7f8", 204385195},

This is the directory structure. The file "VERSION" only contains a string "1.65c", maybe that's the game's version? It's a German CD-ROM version which ran under Windows 3.1.

Can you please make photos of the packaging and the CD (including backside of the box b/c of barcode)?

Please also run the game, then enter debugger by pressing Ctrl-Shift-D and then enter "version" and please post the result in here.

I already own a German version, but it's 1.51, not 1.65c.

comment:5 by blumentopferde, 4 years ago

I can't attach photos to this bug because of an error:

"Trac hat einen internen Fehler festgestellt:
IndexError: pop from empty list"

I uploaded them to my personal cloud instead: https://speicher.retrojunkie.de/index.php/s/L0BaH0bGemIIzzH

I don't have a packaging and a bar code, only a jewel case as the game came bundled with my first PC in 1995. You can see on the photos what I have. I think this must be the version of the game I have: http://www.mobygames.com/game/win3x/roberta-williams-kings-quest-vii-the-princeless-bride/release-info

Starting the debugger by pressing Ctrl-Shift-D unfortunately doesn't seem to work, at least in my DOSBox 0.74/Windows 3.1 environment. If it helps I could provide you with an ISO image of the disc.

comment:6 by m-kiewitz, 4 years ago

Thanks.
I will download those tomorrow.
Ctrl-Shift-D is for the ScummVM SCI console only, not for Dos-Box. You have to do that in ScummVM.

comment:7 by blumentopferde, 4 years ago

I can't start the game in ScummVM. When I try to, ScummVM only outputs the log entries from my first post and quits immediately. Is there a trick, do I have to start ScummVM in a special way or something?

I am working on adding these detection entries. Could you please verify for me which languages are actually available on the disc? Is it really English/French/German or just German?

It's just German. The Installer is German only, the audio test files used in the Installer are German, the Installer has no language selection option and the installed game has German text and audio only. Only the CD booklet/manual is in English/French/German.
