See Wintermute Games for a list of the current state of the various games.

Main ToDo items

Bugs Also in the Original

In the following you will find a number of bugs which actually already occur when using the original interpreter / .EXE. That is, those errors are bugs in the games themselves, not in ScummVM. Still, we sometimes are able to implement workarounds, meaning ScummVM at times works better than the original ;).

Note that neither of these lists is complete.

Not Fixed

  • WME: Dirty Split - Dialog coming out of wrong character [Bug #6203]
  • WME: 1 1/2 Ritter - Graphical slider issues in sound options menu [Bug #6567]
  • WME: Rosemary - Sprite flaw on going upwards [Bug #6572]
  • WME: Add save thumbnails to Corrosion [Bug #11032]
  • WME: Some games are using same fonts for selected and normal text [Bug #11287]


  • WME: Bickadoodle - Assertion on climbing the mountain [Bug #6594]
  • WME: The Kite - Overlapping bug [Bug #6721]

Missing Features

  • Plugins for various games
  • Keymapper support
  • 3D characters
  • Debugger

Various ToDo

  • Implement a way to warp to desired chapters without completing the games to reproduce some game-specific bugs
  • Implement script patches (like in SCI) for fixing original bugs (like, 1 1/2 Ritter slider) and accessing interesting dead code (like, debug screens bundled inside game packages)
  • Make a list of games using modified engines
  • Check if Farsi versions of games are working

Known Issues

  • Last letter of text lines is missing sometimes. Notable case: 1 1/2 Ritter - Menu font problem [Bug #11007]
  • WME: Engine doesn't use correct screenmode [Bug #11160]
  • WME: Theora player issues [Bug #6500]

Legacy ToDo List

Not sure if this is already fixed or not. Need to look at this later.

  • Optimize UITiledImage
  • Use more than one dirty rect
  • Font-sizes are wrong enough to allow Dirty Split to draw text that is hidden in the original game (most visible on the coin-interface)
  • Alpha-masks for Theora-videos are broken on big-endian platforms

ToDo items for specific games

Known Issues for FoxTail

  • selection arrow in dialogues menus seems to be drawn a pixel off comparing to original game (need more testing with different FoxTail versions)
  • text in books contains extra '^' character at the beginning of some paragraphs (incorrect split? some kind of specially added control character?)
  • saveload progress bar is not drawn under overlay (I need to learn how to deal with dirtyrects to fix this)
  • savegame description encoding seems to be wrong for some reason for Russian (may be caused by changing encoding during the game)

Known Issues for Rosemary
