Lying Scumm
« on: March 14, 2019, 06:36:30 PM »
Hate to beat a dead horse, but I am still not able to access the SCUMM games  from mGalaxy.
The videos work, the menus work.
But when I hit enter to play the game it say's "Launching Game" and does nothing.
I uninstalled mGalaxy and reinstalled a new copy (not a wise thing as I had to reinstall all the other systems as well)
Still the same thing 
"Launching Game" and then nothing.....
Has anybody else had this issue.
I can click on the shortcut in my shortcut folder and the game launches. I can launch from SCUMMM. Just can not launch from mGalaxy...
It could be a link problem, but I don't know. It worked before, Is there a step I am leaving out in installation ?

Hello...
I use the retroarch scumm core...it works great...

You have the game folder...
in this folder you have to create a file to start the game...
for King's Quest 1 - Quest for the Crown i created "King's Quest 1 - Quest for the Crown.scummvm" (Name it how it should appear in the gamelist)
this is a simple txt file with extra ending...
this file must contain the GAME SHORT NAME...for this game its "kq1" ...and nothing more...use a texteditor...
all gameshortname are here: https://www.scummvm.org/compatibility/
DB update..thats all....hope it helps...

Hello ,what is the executable opened by your lnk file ? if it's a loader it can't work.

When the game is working, press ctrl+alt+suppr to see the executable name, the lnk need to use this file.
