I own a Huawei ideos x3 aka U8510 which is really low-end hardware: 600MHz ARMv6, 256MB RAM, HVGA screen, android 2.3.5. Even on this slow device the "old" scummvm games like monkey island, broken sword, etc. run very well. I didn't try interactive video like urban runner, but as long as that's not ...

Tap the screen twice and hold after the second tap -- just like you do drag+drop on a notebook's touchpad.

No, I thought the phrase "even though flac is compressed" implied that you place flac quality somewhere between mp3 and uncompressed audio. Apparently this interpretation was wrong, so just ignore what I said in this regard :)

Also even though flac is compressed [...] flac uses lossless compression and therefore sounds 100% like the original. If flac sounds worse than uncompressed audio for you, you are doing something very wrong. I can hear the difference between flac and mp3 when I rip a ScummVM game with CD Audio. Thi...

MP3 will always be sub-par quality because like it or not, it removes frequencies. Every digital audioformat removes high frequencies, this is a result of finite samplingrate and the nyquist theorem. For CD-Audio the cutoff is somewhere around 19-20kHz, for high quality MP3 it's often at 17-18kHz. ...

Do you remember how you managed to make him disappear? In which screen for example, and if you know how to reproduce it. I visited the barn for the first time and talked to the cow. During the conversation flux suddenly disappeared (shadow still visible) and reappeared afterwards. Don't know if thi...

I tried the german version and it seems to work quite well. Problems I found: Flux turned invisible once (I guess this is one of these "minor graphic glitches"). Some Charset Problems: German quotes show as ?...„ instead of „...“ and "Ä" is displayed as "?". Very high CPU usage. edit: scummvm 1.3.0s...

If your Monitor is connected via a digital link ( not VGA) to your graphics card, you may enable aspect-correct scaling in your graphics drivers. At least ati and nvidia offer this setting, i don't know if it's available for crappy intel graphics. Another option is to check your monitor for a builti...

Re: The 7th Guest - ScummVM won't find it

I also copied all the files from the two CDs into one folder which now contains all the files listed here: http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Datafiles#7th_Guest.2C_The That's the way it should work. Which version of ScummVM do you use? It will not work in 0.12.0, so you need a current SVN snapshot....
