Sponsored Links
180w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer bgK has updated ScummVM, an implementation of LucasArts SCUMM interpreter emulator, to Build 20110605 for PS3 Custom Firmware users.

For those unaware, ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files.

To quote: ScummVM on PS3:

Prerequisites

  • A homebrew enabled PlayStation 3 console. As of now that mostly means having a custom firmware installed. Obtaining and installing such a software is out of the scope of this document. Sorry, but you’re on your own for that one.

  • At least one ScummVM supported game. The list of compatible games can be seen here: [Register or Login to view links]
  • The page [Register or Login to view links] references some places where those games can be bought. Demonstration versions for most of the supported games are downloadable on [Register or Login to view links]
  • An USB drive.

Installing

  • From a computer, download the installable package of the PS3 port from ScummVM’s main site. It should be a .pkg file. Copy it to an USB drive.
  • After having plugged the USB drive to you PS3, the installation package should appear in the XMB under the “Games > Install Package” menu. Installing it copies ScummVM and its dependencies to your PS3′s hard drive. It also adds the “Games > PlayStation 3 > ScummVM” XMB entry which is to be used to launch ScummVM.

Configuring and playing games

  • The user manual describes how to add games to ScummVM and launch them : [Register or Login to view links]

PlayStation 3 Specifics

  • Games can be launched either from an USB drive or from the internal hard drive. The internal hard drive has better performance though.
  • Savegames are wrote in the /hdd0/game/SCUM12000/saves folder.
  • Left stick => Mouse
  • Cross => Left mouse button
  • Circle => Right mouse button
  • Triangle => Game menu (F5)
  • Square => Escape
  • Start => ScummVM’s in global game menu
  • Select => Toggle virtual keyboard
  • L1 => AGI predictive input dialog

Disclaimer

  • Unauthorized distribution of an installable package with non freeware games included is a violation of the copyright law and is as such forbidden.

Building from source

  • This port of ScummVM to the PS3 is based on SDL. It uses the open source SDK PSL1GHT.
  • The dependencies needed to build it are :
  • The toolchain from [Register or Login to view links]
  • SDL from [Register or Login to view links]
  • ScummVM from [Register or Login to view links]

Once all the dependencies are correctly setup, an installable package can be obtained from source by issuing the following command :

./configure –host=ps3 && make ps3pkg

It'd be pointless apart from a "hey look what I can do" standpoint, performance would be woeful (like 15year old PC woeful, not netbook win7 woeful)

Nice, finally TOONSTRUCK is running Proper on PS3

No DosBox and so on (i already got it working on DosBox, but its easier for you on ScumVm )

HowTo:

Put files from Disc 1 and 2 in one Folder... The ACT Folders are important.

It should look like:

TOONSTRUCK/ACT1
TOONSTRUCK/ACT2
TOONSTRUCK/MISC

Copy TOONSTRUCK Folder to external HDD (or internal, depends on you)
Download [Register or Login to view links]
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

DEV State from ScumWiki:

Toonstruck
Game is completable.

  • Requires the toon.dat resource file
  • Occasional graphical glitches

And sry for bad english.
