Hi,
I've got the longest journey in 4 CD, I try to copy all file like describe on the github page, when I try to add the game, I've got the error message can't find game into the directory. I try to install it from CD, same issue. I finally try with the GOG version still same problem...

Any Ideas ?

Thanks

Which version of ResidualVM did you try with?

I have the same problem, it says it can't find the game (GOG version).

I'm using ResidualVM 0.3.1

That probably the reason. While the compatibility page for the development version lists The Longest Journey as a supported game, the one for 0.3.1 does not. So you presumably need one of the daily builds instead. (I haven't tried them myself.)

Oooh!! nice I actually thought the compatibility list was for the latest stable version.

Thank you, I will be trying with the daily builds then.

I'd like to know which files, and in what file/folder order from the 4 CDs for - The Longest Journey - are required to install the game correctly to play it with ResidualVM v0.3.1, and higher, as these details are not on the Documentation > Datafiles page - as yet. :wink:

However, I found what I believe I needed on the GitHub page of ResidualVM, so here is a list of what you need, I believe:

You will need to copy the data files from your The Longest Journey CDs, DVD or digital distribution into one directory. Specifically, you'll need:

The 1a—79 directories (only 4f for demo version).
The global directory.
The static directory.
The fonts directory (not critical, but recommended – see below).
x.xarc and all the INI files.
game.exe (not critical, but recommended for a styled message dialog)
The 2-CD and DVD versions have some of the data files packed in installer archives. The archives need to be unpacked before they can be used.

Hopefully these details are correct (Cut+Pasted) - but still require adding to the ResidualVM, Documentation > Datafiles page, when those of you who have authority get a moment to do so. 8)
