A while ago ScummVM suddenly stopped working with my copy of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure (Macintosh edition) and I haven't been able to get it working again. I tried deleting the ScummVM config for the game and reloading it, but I get an error saying ScummVM can't read the directory. I've triple checked the permissions and scrubbed any ACLs that may be on the files, but I keep getting "ScummVM couldn't open the specified directory!" error message. There is also nothing useful in the console messages either.

I'm currently the current ScummVM on Mac OS X 10.5.8 PPC.

Does anyone have any ideas what's wrong?

  • Sounds more like a directory is missing. Perhaps a reinstall of everything is in order? Nov 14, 2011 at 15:25
  • There is no install process. ScummVM is just a bundle and Indy III is just a folder with the game and the files.

ScummVM is basicly an emulator for Indiana Jones and the others, on your note here i tried out if there is an issue with my Windows version but it works fine. ScummVM is prone to have problems with long directory names or special character's like "space" in the folder names. Also you say suddenly that meaning it worked yesterday then it didn't today? If that is the issue then try to get another copy of the game or another scummVM game and try it like that
