version of the The Feeble Files.
- Added support for Enhanced Music by James Wood****
Broken Sword 2:
- Slight graphics improvement for PSX version.
- Fixed bug in the original Lands of Lore GUI which made ScummVM error out
in the case the user did not have a contiguous save slot usage.
- Add support for original DOS Lands of Lore save files (also applies to save
files made with the GOG release).
- Fixed race condition in SCI1.1 palette changes. This fixes an error in
QFG1VGA, when sleeping at Erana's place.
- The option to toggle sound effect types between digitized and synthesized
has been disabled until a more user-friendly GUI option is possible.
Digital sound effects are always preferred for now.
- Fixed a case where starting a new song didn't fully reset its channels,
thus some notes sounded wrong.
Read Me - PS3:
Prerequisites ============= - A homebrew enabled PlayStation 3 console. As of now that mostly means having a custom firmware installed. Obtaining and installing such a software is out of the scope of this document. Sorry, but you're on your own for that one. - At least one ScummVM supported game. The list of compatible games can be seen here: http://www.scummvm.org/compatibility/ The page http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Where_to_get_the_games references some places where those games can be bought. Demonstration versions for most of the supported games are downloadable on http://scummvm.org/demos/ - An USB drive. Installing ========== From a computer, download the installable package of the PS3 port from ScummVM's main site. It should be a .pkg file. Copy it to an USB drive. After having plugged the USB drive to you PS3, the installation package should appear in the XMB under the "Games > Install Package" menu. Installing it copies ScummVM and its dependencies to your PS3's hard drive. It also adds the "Games > PlayStation 3 > ScummVM" XMB entry which is to be used to launch ScummVM. Configuring and playing games ============================= The user manual describes how to add games to ScummVM and launch them : http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/User_Manual PlayStation 3 Specifics ======================= Games can be launched either from an USB drive or from the internal hard drive. The internal hard drive has better performance though. Savegames are wrote in the /hdd0/game/SCUM12000/saves folder. Joypad button mapping ===================== - Left stick => Mouse - Cross => Left mouse button - Circle => Right mouse button - Triangle => Game menu (F5) - Square => Escape - Start => ScummVM's in global game menu - Select => Toggle virtual keyboard - L1 => AGI predictive input dialog Disclaimer ========== Unauthorized distribution of an installable package with non freeware games included is a violation of the copyright law and is as such forbidden. Building from source ==================== This port of ScummVM to the PS3 is based on SDL. It uses the open source SDK PSL1GHT. The dependencies needed to build it are : - The toolchain from https://github.com/ps3dev/ps3toolchain - SDL from https://github.com/zeldin/SDL_PSL1GHT - ScummVM from https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm Once all the dependencies are correctly setup, an installable package can be obtained from source by issuing the following command : ./configure --host=ps3 && make ps3pkg
