ScummVM 1.4.0 Emulator 10th Anniversary Edition for PS3 Arrives


Sponsored Links
162w ago - 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!

well i did and i didn't, i stuffed around with curse of monkey island and still no go.

but then i tried day of the tentacle, and discworld and they both work for them.

so i think its just an issue with the curse of monkey island i have, whenever i press start i can't select any of the options from the screen.

i'm using: The Curse Of Monkey Island (CD Windows)

does anyone have this version of the game working with saves? if not can you reccomend a version that works with saves?

i really want to show my fiance this series but don't want to jump her straight into no 2 without seeing the first one thru, its such a classic game.

Edit: nvm i found it lol in options/paths theres a place to select save game output. durr i'm stupid.

Which version are you using? I'm having no problem at all with saving... on most of the Lucasarts games you can just hit start and the option will come up for it, you just have to make sure that in the main menu you set up your paths properly. I have all of my paths set to usb0:/scummvm/, and all of the games have subdirectories within that folder.

On some of the games, like the ones by Sierra, you have to go the save menus within the games themselves, and then you can save from there. Some of them (like Simon the Sorcerer) you have to use an inventory item... if I remember right, in Simon if you use the postcard you can save. Hope this helps
