ScummVM 1.4.0 Emulator 10th Anniversary Edition for PS3 Arrives
Following up on the previous release and PS3 Port Build 20110622, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer bgK has updated ScummVM, an implementation of LucasArts SCUMM interpreter emulator, to ScummVM version 1.4.0 in celebration of their 10th anniversary.
To quote: It has been over 10 years. We are here thanks to the work of 131 developers. 49,124 commits were made just to the ScummVM tree and those turned into a massive 1,085,714 lines of code (excluding comments) and of course over 7.6 million downloads from the main site alone. I would say those were a great ten years.
The outcome is ScummVM 1.4.0 which we are releasing today, 11/11/11 11:11:11.11.
More games are supported: Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos (based on the same engine as Kyrandia), the kids' game Blue's Birthday Adventure, and the science fiction game Ringworld: Revenge of the Patriarch. On top of that, practically all supported Sierra SCI games now have their Amiga versions working.
Our musically inclined users will notice PC speaker support in Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, CMS support in Loom, The Secret of Monkey Island and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, fixed MIDI in the DOS versions of the Elvira series, and even sound in Winnie the Pooh in the Hundred Acre Wood!
As always, there are many more new features; you can find the full list in our release notes and the release itself on our downloads page. Enjoy!

Fixed crash when trying to talk and ask something at the same time.
Added better handling of digital vs. synthesized sound effects. If the "Mixed Adlib / MIDI mode" checkbox is checked, the engine will prefer digital sound effects, otherwise their synthesized counterparts will be preferred instead, if both versions of the same effect exist.
Implemented PC Speaker support for SCUMM v5 games.
Fixed priority bug in iMuse. As a result the AdLib music should sound better, since important notes are not interrupted anymore.
Implemented CMS support for Loom, The Secret of Monkey Island and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
Improved palette handling for the Amiga version of Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis.
Broken Sword 1:
Fix freeze in Windows demo.
Fix crash when using cutscene subtitles pack with the Macintosh version.

The US version of Discworld II now shows the correct title screen and language flag.
Fixed plugins on Android 3.x.
Moved the default saved game location to the SD card.
No DosBox and so on (i already got it working on DosBox, but its easier for you on ScumVm )
Put files from Disc 1 and 2 in one Folder... The ACT Folders are important.
It should look like:
Copy TOONSTRUCK Folder to external HDD (or internal, depends on you)
Open Multiman and Connect to PS3 FTP...go to dev_hdd0/game/SCUM12000/USRDIR/ and put the toon.dat in there. (it should look like that /USRDIR/toon.dat)
Start ScumVm and "Add Game" select "TOONSTRUCK" Folder and have fun. No other Settings needed.
Enjoy this awesome old Retro Game. Hope it helps some of you guys. Hf
