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
