167w 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

Now - the compression is no where near as much of an issue on PS3, but still if you're keen on saving space - take a look, gets total files for COMI down to
