I solved it! Your suggestion to make me paste the log got me to stare at it for a while.
I always assumed when you said “share/exult/blackgate/etc” that I needed to figure out how to put the games into the auto generating “/.exult” folder, thinking it was a shortcut to elsewhere in the filesystem.
Still, based on where the log was looking, I created a “share” folder in the base exult appdata folder, then an “exult” folder within that, then “blackgate” and “serpentisle” folders within that, with the game data being pasted into each. Boom. Solved.
Thanks for being so responsive and for so many awesome Pandora ports.
Whoa. The ScummVM team have since announced Ultima 8 support as well! Now THAT is something I would like on Pandora after I finish 7. After the next update of ScummVM has dropped I would love to see it ported to Pandora.
Thanks Pickle for pointing this out. I wasn't aware this existed! I will download it and see if the app works. (By coincidence I've been on a Scumm binge recently, playing through the classics. Recently finished Loom from start to finish for the first time(!) and now replaying Secret of Monkey Island before I tackle Monkey Island 2 again.)
lol yes I've noticed ptitSeb is extremely prolific. :checks the repo: Now over 400 apps! I'm impressed (That's not hard to do as I find any porting impressive since I can't even compile but even so that is still some serious output!)
I've downloaded and extracted the automatic build. I've set it to transfer to my Pandora next time I sync.
