It looks like you may have an illegal copy of the game and we do not support pirating games. See our Copyright FAQ if you want to know why. Also Broken Sword is actually easy to buy legally, for example on GOG.com where you get the original game (that you can play with ScummVM) when you buy the Director's Cut.

Ah OK. So in that case you basically need the files listed on our wiki.
  • If you bought the CD version, copy the files directly from the CD somewhere to your disk and rename the speech.clu files as indicated on that page.
  • If you bought the Revolution 25th Anniversary collection DVD, then you need to install the game using the setup.exe on the DVD. That version comes with ScummVM but you can replace the provided ScummVM with a different one.
  • If you bought the version on GOG, you need to download the original game provided as an extra from the GOG website and then execute the downloaded setup installer. This version also comes with ScummVM, but again you can replace the provided ScummVM with a different one.
I am not aware of any legal version of the game coming in the form on an iso file.
