To quote: "For anyone that does not have a clue on what ScummVM is, take a look at this site here: scummvm.org. It has a ton of info on what ScummVm is and does. But basically:

ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this: ScummVM just replaces the executables shipped with the games, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed!

A quote from the man himself:

Hi, I am currently working on a ScummVM port for the PS3, much of it already works, but there are still some points which need fixing.The Source is located at lousyphreak's scummvm-ps3 at ps3 - GitHub it builds with the leaked 1.92 SDK, no .pkg yet, it needs to be launched via the homebrew mode of Gaia Manager (the only one i tested it with)

What works:

1.) most of it

What doesn't:

I have only tried a handful of games, this list is by far not complete.

1.) You will get corrupted palettes in most games (corruption is usually just minor)
2.) Beneath a Steel Sky crashes during the intro
3.) Many scumm games crash when showing the overlay (Start button)
4.) in some games the cursor has no transparent colors
5.) slowdowns may occur
6.) MT32 emu shows problems at least in MI2"

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.
