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)
1.) most of it
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'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.
Which version are you using? I'm having no problem at all with saving... on most of the Lucasarts games you can just hit start and the option will come up for it, you just have to make sure that in the main menu you set up your paths properly. I have all of my paths set to usb0:/scummvm/, and all of the games have subdirectories within that folder.
On some of the games, like the ones by Sierra, you have to go the save menus within the games themselves, and then you can save from there. Some of them (like Simon the Sorcerer) you have to use an inventory item... if I remember right, in Simon if you use the postcard you can save. Hope this helps
Does anyone have any idea how to enable the mt32 emulation? Everything is running fine except this... I have the mt32_control.rom and mt32_pcm.rom files, I've tried putting them in /ScummVM on my usb hdd, on the internal drive, and in the directories for the individual games, but no luck. It doesn't let me select a MT32 device, and I just get the typical SB16 sounding music.
I have to say though, this is incredible, I'm having a blast playing KQ5, PQ3, and DOTT again with it.
