ScummVM Build 20110605 for PS3 Custom Firmware by bgK


149w 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.

Download: ScummVM Build 20110605 for PS3 CFW / ScummVM Build 20110605 for GeoHot/WutangRZA PS3 CFW / GIT

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: http://www.scummvm.org/compatibility/
  • The page http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Where_to_get_the_games references some places where those games can be bought. Demonstration versions for most of the supported games are downloadable on http://scummvm.org/demos/
  • 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 : http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/User_Manual

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 https://github.com/ps3dev/ps3toolchain
  • SDL from https://github.com/zeldin/SDL_PSL1GHT
  • ScummVM from https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm

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

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.

it's just curse of monkey island, the first one. when i press the start button theres an option to save, load etc but i can't click on any of them. i have to press select to get back out of the game. so what do you mean by set up the paths properly?

can you give me a screenie of yours?

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