Description

When I click start to launch starship titanic in scummvm it doesn't show the version number on start up, but it does when playing it through windows (GOG binary).

It would be nice to see the version number.

I don't think that's a good idea. Giving a version number would imply that the ScummVM engine is exactly that implementation, and it's not. Not only for the new options like GMM saving and loading, but also that the engine already includes workarounds for bugs that I identified in the original game. And I don't want to have to keep updating a version number in the dialog as I do further changes. Better to leave it as just the overall ScummVM application's version number.
