Ah, you have discovered the demo scene ;) Yes, those demos are amazing but to squeeze all that power out of such an old computer you have to do pretty much the exact opposite of what ScummVM is doing. ScummVM is "wasteful" because it is written on layers of abstraction to make it portable and maint...

The next thing is for Samsung to release BADA 1.2. Apparently I might be able to get it by nagging a Samsung service centre. Depending on which forum you read, it's either coming very soon, or not at all. They no longer provide an SDK for version 1.0 so building for that version is not an option. H...

Well if you can get Quake 2 running in a browser, I guess it must be possible to get ScummVM online :wink: I'll then be able to play DOTT all day at work, awesome :P That's not really running in a browser, and it's not the original source code. It's running in the Java VM and it's a source port to ...

Now also ported to ECS Amiga's (eg A600) which only support 64 colors so I'm having to convert from 8 bit to 6 bit in realtime for the games and 16 bit to 6 bit for the Launcher.

DOTT in only 64 colors

MIDI Emulation and CPU load

Hiya, I'm playing with a platform port that only has about 10 MIPS of mighty CPU 'grunt' to play with :lol: Although the game graphics are rendered (320x200) at full speed and the SFX is working fine the MIDI emulation is struggling badly. Unless it's a silly bug in my port (always possible!), I ass...

Thanks it's slowly getting there....although you guys did most of the work of course :D

No sorry....no home page. The latest version can always be downloaded from the Amiga resource site AmiNet

Hiya,

My real coding job has ramped-up a lot recently so I don't have much time to spend on this port at the moment....sorry :(

If I do manage to get anywhere with this interesting project then I'll let you know.

I thought DOSBOX emulates MSDOS whereas ScummVM is an interpreter than runs natively on the host system?

Re: Is ScummVM too flexible for its own good?

My argument as already stated above :wink: with increased flexibility you increase code complexity which will always result in more bugs and less performance (coding 101). I'm a coder (and user) who simply wants to run the best versions of games on platforms that don't natively support them. If the ...
