Indiana Jones and the Seven Cities of Gold > Indiana Jones and the relic of the Viking

Technical support for our old demo


Please post here if you have any issues with the old demo embedded inside "Relics of the Viking". You can access that hidden game only after you complete "Relic of the Viking"

Bug: If playing Relic of the Viking demo with a translation, running the old demo will crash:

Error: Failed to read translation file: ITA.tra:
The translation file is not compatible with this game. The translation is designed for 'Indiana Jones and the relic of the Viking'.

Not sure how to deal with fixing this. :/ Probably something that needs to be fix at engine level?

Current working solution to play OLD DEMO:
a) run winsetup.exe and set Game Language  to Game Default.

The issue is that running an "embedded" game from within another AGS game forces the same settings as the host game onto the embedded game.

A quick fix would be to check from within Relic if the current language is not English, and in that case displaying a popup that says "Sorry, English only. Please close this game, change language and open again"

afaik newer versions of AGS let you switch translation file at runtime, so just switch to english as soon as the player wants to start the embedded game. He will come back to an english version of relic then, but at least has no crash. maybe it's possible to store the translation running before the hard switch to english in some global variable and switch back when returning to the host game.

Yes in the mean time I've seen that so it will be fixed quite easily
