I solved it! Your suggestion to make me paste the log got me to stare at it for a while.
I always assumed when you said “share/exult/blackgate/etc” that I needed to figure out how to put the games into the auto generating “/.exult” folder, thinking it was a shortcut to elsewhere in the filesystem.
Still, based on where the log was looking, I created a “share” folder in the base exult appdata folder, then an “exult” folder within that, then “blackgate” and “serpentisle” folders within that, with the game data being pasted into each. Boom. Solved.
Thanks for being so responsive and for so many awesome Pandora ports.
Whoa. The ScummVM team have since announced Ultima 8 support as well! Now THAT is something I would like on Pandora after I finish 7. After the next update of ScummVM has dropped I would love to see it ported to Pandora.
