Why not? Double-tap with the stylus, it's easier that anything imaginable. Don't forget to DOUBLE-tap to move inside a dir, as that's the only way ScummVM will scan for files inside said dir. Yessiree.

Replies: 6

I think - I can't check at the moment - that the version included in Elvira's Horror Pack skips the copy protection, so ScummVM has to behave in the same way. Nope, it doesn't. It's only prearranged so that the code is always the same (it's listed in the manual as well), but it's not skipped. Just ...

The only enhancement I'm aware of is that the random code generator that is used in Waxworks and Elvira 2 for copy protection has been rigged in the Horror Pack to always ask for the same number, which is kindly enough mentioned in the manual. For obvious reasons of not making the owners of the CD t...

That's weird, you know. I have a W950 myself, and I can SEE Wally and everything fine, but the moment I try to do anything on that first screen, the game hangs. Ouch. Weird, huh?

install an n-lited version of xp ie stripped down to the basics. I don't suppose you need me telling you that, but those stripped down versions of Windows ARE well-known to produce bugs of varying exocity and beautifulness when trying to run seemingly innocent software on them simply because someth...

There is a program for emulating DOS, though, namely DOSBox. I am not sure if there is a version for your Symbian phone, though. In fact, I somewhat doubt it, and even if there is one, it likely is not fast enough :-/. There isn't. Believe me, I've looked, as I use a Symbian phone myself. Yep. No w...

It's not about game styling, it's about the game engine. And since the Journeyman Project engine is not supported, it is not going to be playable with ScummVM. It's that simple.

Ooops, my bad. Disregard my previous statements then :) Thanks for the info, by the way.

Why did you make the ISOs? You simply had to copy the files to your hard drive, you don't need to INSTALL anything because the installation doesn't copy all that needs to be copied. Simple as that. And no, of course if you replace the built-in cutscenes with the re-encoded ones they won't get instal...

I can't say I'm not waiting for the oft-promised PC version of Mercenaries 2 (as I am, and so should you), it's just that the last in-house-developed game published by LucasArts was -- when exactly? They live off those royalties and exclusive publishing rights, I'm afraid.

The Lego Star Wars games are pretty clever and fun; although the fact that they're continuing to use the formula worries me, because the novelty is wearing off. The LEGO novelty or the Star Wars novelty? (yes, I'm trying as hard as I can not to laugh at this phrase) The only thing LA can do to save...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't they all already have ports to a gazillion platforms (including, but not limited to, GameBoy Advance of all things)? Granted, I wouldn't say 'no' to NetHack on my mobile :)

FreeSpirit, it was 0+something. It's in the README, I promise.
By the way, knowing your phone model would be good too :)

No, it scrolls the screen for me just as well as the keys do. Well, at least in the *right* direction. The left one is hassle-free only with the keys :)
