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"

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.

to answer my own question, no zipped files don't work lol. i loaded up all 3 monkey island games, discworld and also day of the tentacle. a lot of fun!

one issue though is when i press start i can't select any of the options, spefically save

hope this gets fixed soon as its bloody awesome playing these classic games again, on my plasma in my lounge room using a ps3 controller lol in 1080p.

now i can get my missus into these games and she might stay off the facebook crap for a while heh.
