ScummVM will only work with SDL 1.2, SDL 2 is not supported and would require major effort to make it work due to its different keyboard event handling.

Did you look into this?
I gravely miss having ScummVM on my phone...

Hello.

Someone has made ScummVM/SDL compatible with Windows 8.
I suppose it would be possible to port it to Windows Phone.

FWIW, I've initiated a ScummVM port to Windows Phone 8.1
The current status is that I have modified version of the
surfacesdl class that uses SDL2.0 instead of SDL1.2.

Currently I'm working on the filesystem backend to be able
to load game data, but below is a screenshot from the main menu.

I've made some good progress the last couple of days,
so I thought I'd post about it here.
I'm at a point where I can play games (scumm engine is what I've tried), sound is working etc.
There's still some missing features before it's usable though:
- Game data can't be read from any other place than the "Installed location" folder, i.e. I have to include the games I want into the build.
- No keyboard support.

Wow skristiansson, I'm really eager to try this (even signed up for the forum Smile) but I guess I'll need a developer unlocked phone?

Your effort is highly appreciated!

I'm impressed. How did you solve internal memory access? AFAIR on WP you could get only to files with certain extension? Has this changed?

I see the solution, or better word workaround.

This the only point i dislike in WP8.1. There is not even a decent audio book player becouse of this FS restriction.

Anyway, i don't think if iso is really better in that case. Until we get devices with 4GB of RAM talkie version will be inavailable anyway. Floppy version are usually hold in zip files, ISO will require us burn fake cd with image recorder.

Do i correctly understand discusion on github, that there will be only SD card used? Zip/Iso will not work from internal memory - my L920 does not have sd card slot :/

Please see Forum Rule #0:

People with CD or original disks can easily dump them as they previously have needed to, and GOG versions are already ISO images:
