The Dagger of Amon Ra was the second game in the Laura Bow series. The game is set in the 1920's after the events in the previous game. Laura Bow recently graduated from Tulane University, and has moved to New York City, where she has earned employment at a prestigious newspaper. Laura's first assignment is to write a story about the benefit held at a local museum to celebrate their new Egyptian exhibit. When a murder happens at the benefit, she is locked inside with all of the other suspects. More people begin to die, so now Laura must solve the crimes before the killer either escapes or kills her.

Required data files

For more information on how ScummVM uses game data files, see the user documentation.

WARNING: Unlike other games, SCI games have significant variation in the naming of required files.

They also can load supplementary files by resource maps, so it is recommended to keep all files in the game data directory from the CD.

Unless otherwise specified, do NOT remove any file from the directory, even if it does not appear on the following list, since this will likely cause weird bugs.

Copy all files to the game directory. Some games need additional work:

Floppy games with RESOURCE.p01, p02, etc. and/or RESOURCE.a01, a02, etc. files

  • Concatenate all RESOURCE.p0* files to RESOURCE.000 (e.g. copy /b RESOURCE.p0* RESOURCE.000 on Windows, or cat RESOURCE.p0* > RESOURCE.000 on *nix).
  • Concatenate all RESOURCE.a0* files to RESOURCE.AUD (e.g. copy /b RESOURCE.a0* RESOURCE.AUD on Windows, or cat RESOURCE.a0* > RESOURCE.AUD on *nix).
