Testing Macromedia director in ScummVM

ScummVM reached a milestone with the release of 2.5.0. Version 0.0.1 was released 20 years ago. The latest release was also the first release that included support for a few Director games.

MacroMedia Director, later Adobe Director, was a multimedia application authoring platform. Its ease of use led to a huge number of graphic adventure games being written with it. This was the late 90's. Some well known games are the Journeyman Project, Total Distortion and Spaceship Warlock.

One challenge to over come was to work on the code without breaking other parts. We'll go over the architecture of ScummVM, dive deeper into the Director Engine and land on how tests improved the code.
