NAGI is not working properly on Windows 10
« on: August 23, 2020, 02:22:53 AM »
I was about to play Space Quest 0 - Replicated on my Windows 10 notebook, but NAGI shows me only incomplete screens and I neither can work with the text parser nor with the menu.
You can see the result as screenshot in my attachement. Is there another way to play Space Quest 0 in Windows 10?

Are there other possibilities to play AGI games on Windows 10?

Strange, on my Windows 10 PC I can play Space Quest 0.  ???

I wonder why it doesn't work on my notebook.

Update graphic drivers? Dunno.

Unless there's a way newer version of NAGI that uses something much newer than SDL 1.x, I don't think updated drivers would make a difference 🤔

Maybe try changing the compatibility mode of NAGI within Windows?

You could give ScummVM a go.

Or better yet, DOSBox.

I already tried to change the compatibility mode, but nothing changed. Maybe it's the notebook itself and there is something broken in the Windows 10.
DosBox wouldn't help, because Space Quest 0 has neiher .exe nor .com, except for the NAGI .exe.
ScummVM could work. Thank you for your help.  :)

I believe that Replicated is one of those fan games with sloppy memory management where the original interpreter fails on launch, but works with NAGI. Give ScummVM a try as Charles suggested if you are having trouble with NAGI.

The most recent version of SDL is 2.0.12. NAGI was built using an earlier version.. The SDL wiki says that there are a lot of changes from SDL1 to SDL2, specifically in the graphics area that are not backwards compatible. It could be that notebook has SDL2 on it, but your desktop has SDL1.

SDL2.DLL is not drop-in compatible with SDL.DLL. You likely wouldn't even get an application window if you tried.

I ran SQ0 with the customized NAGI that it came with (it had a different icon), giving it a copy of SDL.DLL (1.x) and some fonts, and it worked fine.

The game includes the right version of SDL and NAGI would use the DLL in its own folder. Most (all?) applications that use SDL simply includes it in its own folder and does not copy it to SysWOW64 or register it. So this seems unlikely unless RamoramaInteractive replaced it himself for some reason.
