ScummVM for N900 / Fremantle updated!

Just a quick note, i have released ScummVM 1.0.0-rc1-fremantle3 containing the following enhancements:

  • full-screen mode can be entered and left with ctrl-f.
  • Global menu can be entered with ctrl-s
  • SCI games have been enabled. A brief test with Larry 6 and Quest for Glory 2 seemed promising!

 Download it here:

Things TODO left:

  • Come up with new keypresses for the essential features like saving and loading game
  • Upload the binary package to Downloads and fremantle repositories
  • Submit things to the mainstream project in case I actually do any
    production-quality code changes, instead of random hacking around
    (though I’m not hiding anything, all my stuff is available upon request
    if someone really wants.)
  • Try to get the screen centered (already happens in fullscreen)
  • Display the mouse cursor (actually already seems to happen in AGI games like Larry 1)

  1. Yes the same games should work. Also I am just now trying to use a bluetooth mouse to see if it would be more fun that way – some games do seem to expect you to have a real mouse

  2. Hey. I was wondering how do I get this thing installed on my n900? I’ve tried to download the file directly on my n900. When I go to the directory, where I downloaded it and try to open it, it asks me what program I want to open it with. So I’m a bit confused. Hope you can help me. Thanks in advance!

  3. I am going to post some instructions here later during the weekend. I thought they wouldn’t be needed as the more official packages would be out by now but if not, I’ll gladly help people to install and run my version in the meantime.

  4. Hi.

    Is this package going to install on the root partition, or in /opt? 8 megs is quita a lot. Just worried about my precious megabytes :)
