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"

hey guys,

i tried DOTT, and i get no sound... do i have to configure the sound settings ? What should i setup there ? Thanks for answer

which version of the game do you have? only the dos-cd version has audio. Also if you do have the one with audio, after you start the game, press start go to options and under audio, you'll have to enable voices.

I just tried this and it's working great with The Dig. I'm using the DualShock controller with no problems. Sound is fine and Savestates are working. I was just going to try this out but I got pulled into the story and played for a couple of hours. Real nice to relive the classic PC days. thanks to the coder for this.

I tried a few other games. They all started but I didn't do any thorough testing. I did have a some problems with the button configurations but I haven't been using a keyboard. I will be trying a few more games and I'll report if I find any problems.

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.
