ScummVM - Lost in Time does not work


Recommended Posts

The game "Lost in time" is available in the scummvm game menu but it can't be started. In the Launchbox.xml file it's referenced as ScummVMGameType "lostintime", but scummvm.exe --list-games does not contain "lostintime". Any changes in the launchbox.xml are overwritten during start so i can't test this, but the game is based on the "Gob Engine" and there is a gob gametype in the list. Chances are, that this would be the right game type. Can you fix this please? Thx in advance!

Hi Jason, That's the issue. ScummVm.games.Add("lostintime", "Lost in Time"); it should be ScummVm.games.Add("gob", "Lost in Time"); When you launch the scummvm.exe with --list-games parameter, it does not contain "lostintime" as gametype. There is a "gob" game type which is used for Lost in Time. You could grab the game and try it, it's abandonware.
