Exile problems

As it seems I may be stuck in the hospital for surgery a while, I thought I should make sure Exile would work too... but it seems ScummVM doesn't like it. I am trying out ResidualVM, that I saw in a few posts (in a google search) works for Exile.
So, it starts, it seems to run great, but I can't get it to save a game.... I tried ctrl+f5 (like ScummVM) and f1 (as I saw someone on the ResidualVM forum recommended for a different game) and just browsed through the launcher in case there was some obvious setting or something...

Sorry to be a pest..... :P

Ideas please?

Nice! Though this should be moved to the Exile section ;)
If you press esc, you should get Exile’s own save interface. ResidualVM should be able to load those save files.


While we’re at it, here are some notes for those who want to try this method. Keep in mind that, according to the web page, it’s currently still buggy (more than Myst or Riven under ScummVM), and that you’ll need the daily build EDIT: you can now use the standard build. These are the files you’ll need, and here is the official debugging forum thread.

You will need these elements from your game CDs or DVD :
-- M3Data directory
-- Data directory
-- The original game executable (Windows or Mac)
-- The menu language file 'language.m3u', or '[LANGUAGE].m3u' (DVD only)

When using the CD version, you will need to merge the 'Data' directories from all four discs. Playing directly from the CDs is not supported.

The id.m3i files are probably not necessary.

The required files must be organized in the following manner to be recognized:
-- bin/M3.exe
-- Data/*.m3a
-- M3Data/ Various files and folders (including the DVD version's menu language file)

If you get the “Can’t find any game” warning, check that the data folders and files aren’t read-only.

Yes, sorry, this SHOULD be in the Exile section... Thanks, though. Worked :)

Quick post just to mention that since Dec 31 Exile is supported in the standard version of ResidualVM (i.e. you no longer need the Daily Build).

The patch linked by AlanD seems to be unavailable, but there’s a copy at Mystaventure (“Riven : PC Patch non officiel pour Vista”).

Korovev, I've just tried the link and it works for me - gets the Gamefront page with the Riven Vista Patch on it, and the download works. The Mystaventure link is another useful source :)

Hmm I'll have to check out ResidualVM.
