Question Help If you would be so kind.

OK then.
I've been reading up on all the fun things you need to do to make ft run on xp. Ive got scummvm and qe. When i click on browse then start going through the folders, there is nothing to run. Neither on the cd or in the folder Throttle. I have installed the game and can get it to run without sound not using scumm. I just cant seem to have scumm find it when i browse. Any ideas why, im hooked on lucas and would like very much to continue with what i hear is an amazing game. Thanks

ScummVM doesn't look for any one specific file, but instead the folder that contains all game files. So if you just point it to the folder Throttle, it should be able to do the rest.

Thanks for your help by the way.

Are you attempting to run it in Full Screen? Because that's usually the problem with mine. Play it in windowed mode and see if that works?

Just making sure, you're not running it on XP 64 bit version are you? I'm thinking it's just the XP service pack 2 home or pro edition, but I've just got to make sure...

I've never known ScummVM not to work on a 64bit machine.

What parameters have you put in for running the game (i.e. what graphic setting, sound and so on)?
