No, it won't. Only legitimate PlayStation 2 discs will boot and obviously a self-made CD or DVD-R won't read as a legitimate disc.

If you haven't upgraded your PS3 firmware and you still have the OtherOS option, you could install Linux and run the Linux version of ScummVM.

DRM does not equal security at all, so why bother? And more importantly, why make it tough on people who buy a legitimate product? I understand DRM in downloadable software [to a certain extent - a serial number would suffice], but spare the retail versions. Ubisoft and their solution require your c...

Yep, not a DRM solution I'm particulary fond of. If I buy a retail release, I don't want to be forced to activate it online to play the game. Especially not single player games like Half-Life 2 and Portal. I don't think you can call it an "activation" when Steam has to download gigabytes of data to...

I think this has been discussed here. Also, if you want a fully portable version of ScummVM, there is one, at PortableApps. It's the 0.10.0 version, though.

I haven't had any problems with Version B either, and I have finished it on the DS [with extra RAM], PSP and Windows XP. Must be a Mac thing, then.

Both D2D and GG claim their download versions to be DRM-free though. Whoops! Sorry for that. I just assumed they distribute it on their terms and, as usual, add some kind of DRM. I noticed that both on D2D and GG, the Silmarils Collection's publisher is DotEmu. So I guess now the only reason to get...

That they do. My bad. I thought this was a DotEmu exclusive [or a time exclusive, at least]. There's still one good reason to get the collection from DotEmu. Unlike Direct2Drive and GamersGate, they don't add DRM to their games. I don't know how the DRM issue is handled in this particular case, but ...

The best thing they have in their store is the Silmarils Collection . No other website sells these, and the price is fair. They also have some games which can be played online, like Street Fighter II, which is powered by Gametap. Also, they seem to be using a "custom" version of DOSBox - whatever th...

Have you tried installing the game using it's own installer? I don't know which version of the game you have and what OS you're using, but if you're on a 32-bit Windows, it's worth a shot. Unless, of course, you've already tried it and it didn't work.

The game is not properly supported. From the Backyard Sports series, only Baseball and Football games can be found on the compatibility list , and the Baseball games have only a 20% compatibility rating. Backyard Soccer starts, because ScummVM supports the engine, but it doesn't know how to handle t...

I got that, too, but I went in with all shields up, and nothing happened, so I figured it's either a false positive, or, if they have forums, someone might have posted potentially harmful links or embeds. The latter is the case with most legit sites suddenly displaying the warning. Either way, the s...

Those look like .HQX self extracting archives. Don't know a Windows app that will open that, but it must be out there. There is a number of Windows programs that should open *.hqx archives. There's ZipZag , ALZip and a free version of Stuffit [although I'm not sure what's been taken out of the free...

Hmmmm, that Cygwin executable is dated 2002 It's from Dan Potter's / Cryptic Allusion site for Feet of Fury. You'd need it if you wanted to make swap CDs for the game, so yea, it's old, but it should work. ChillyWilly's n64dev archive contains a "genromfs" file, but alas it's a Linux ELF. Yea, like...

If you're running Windows, grab the Cygwin version here and Cygwin itself here.

Additionally, ChillyWilly posted some info and tools on the NeoFlash boards, which you might find helpful [or not, since it's a Linux toolchain]. Read his post here.
