ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical adventure and role-playing 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! ScummVM is a complete rewrite of these games' executables and is not an emulator. (From ScummVM website)

Status

  • Games seems to be playable, with sound and input
  • GUI with default theme is too small to be clickable/visable. WIth theme scummvm-remastered (scummremastered.zip) it is possible to set GUI scale to 'Large' and get a readable GUI:

To get large readable GUI: edit ~/.config/scummvm.ini change gui_base=0 to gui_base=240

Tested games

Neverhood, Ultima 4, Ultima 6, Grim Fandango, Broken Sword 1

The Neverhood

Change keymap as appropriate, works well.

TODO

  • Implement sane default keys for the devices (there is rudimentary detection for the N900, but we support more devices)
  • Use libsdl2 build, didn't compile when User:Wizzup tried.
  • Revise Maemo-Leste configure backend/target to remove 'optification'
  • Create Widescreen readable theme
  • Fix touchscreen to pointer position de-synchronization. (Starts okay, goes bad).
  • Find rendering and build options for low battery use (adventure game sessions can be long)
  • Get Maemo-Leste target into upstream SCUMMVM
