PS Vita port

Post by bulletfood »

Is there any work being done for porting SCUMMVM to the PS Vita?

Not very actively.

The PSP forum would be the best place to ask about this:
viewforum.php?f=3

I think the current PSP porters are fairly busy IRL and we are only maintaining the current PSP targets, rather than working on supporting the Vita, as can be seen by the last PSP release being v1.4.1:
http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/PlayStation_Portable

Users who want to use v1.6.0 (stable) or v1.7.0git (development) can use nightly builds from our buildbot:
http://buildbot.scummvm.org/builds.html

We are an open source project, so a patch or github pull request to add PSP Vita support with a HOWTO on building a cross compilation toolchain would be considered for inclusion.

Is the vita even hacked so it can run software that isn't signed (unlike in the PSP where the private key was reverse engineered)?

Serious Callers Only: Please see Forum Rule 3b:
viewtopic.php?t=17

I do not know the details, but a quick google search shows that PS Vita has some ability to be loaded with Homebrew software, so this is a moot point and out of scope.

Do not continue this line of discussion or the thread will be locked.

If you're going to consider application of that rule, which is legal bullshit, although you institute the rules you want, you might as well close down the whole topic, and blacklist any effort to port scummvm to them, since it's the only way you're going to run unsigned software on any modern console.

SIGH. You were warned. The forum rules are _VERY_ clear on this. Locking topic.
