Yes, they did work. So that might not be the problem. The original question remains: is it at all possible to compile the sci engine for the DS?

Actually, I don't really mind how you contact me. I have email notifications turned on for PMs so I would see those, email is also good, but the forum is better for me because the messages stick around. Before I new release I do check recent posts on the forums to see if I've solved all the major issues.

Saying that, I check these forums less regularly than I used to these days since the traffic here has gone down. I think that's a positive sign that ScummVM DS is more stable than it used to be!

Now, the SCI engine:

In theory, enabling a new engine should be as simple as turning it on, as bhebing tried. Unfortunately in practice things never go that smoothly - there's always some bug or other to fix, usually in the engine, either in the display code, timing code, excessive memory usage, memory leaks, event handling, or something. A new engine can expose bugs in the DS backend too.

If anyone wants to help with these, they're welcome! I usually debug by enabling the console at boot (I think this is in dsmain.cpp, IIRC) and then scattering printfs in likely places and watching the screen output. It's a long winded process, but has improved my debugging skills a lot!

The same applies to Teen Agent.
