Introduction

Director underwent huge number of versions.

History of the engine.

Games and software targeted by the engine

This engine potentially targets a very large amount of games:

See Director Games for a list of known games and software, and their current state of support in the engine.

Versions

In Japan at least D4+ was released under title マクロメディア ディレクター

Development and Running

Running any D3 or D4 mac target

Besides adding specific md5s, there is a shortcut for forcing a directory to be detected as a director game.

Create an empty file named "D3-mac" or "D4-mac" in the game directory, and it will be detected as the respective Director version

Starting from an arbitrary movie file

Assuming, that you added game named 'workshop' with the method above.

./scummvm --start-movie=HandV workshop

Here HandV is the name of a movie in the directory

Executing lingo tests

Point ScummVM to engines/director/lingo/tests, that will create target 'directortest'. Launching it will try to compile and execute all *.lingo files in that directory. The tests can also be run from the command line with:

./scummvm -d11 -p engines/director/lingo/tests/ directortest
