Currently running ScummVM on: Windows, Linux, BeOS, Symbian, GP2X, PlayStation2, NintendoDS, Wii.

To-do: EVERYTHING ELSE. I won't be truly satisfied until ScummVM will run on my wrist-watch.

Does the PSP support all ScummVM games? If it does that would be the one thing the PSP port has over the DS. Still wouldn't get one, though. I can't cope with using a D-Pad to move the cursour around. It needs to be either a mouse, Wii remote, or stylus to work for me.
Yeah, every game supported runs.

Even COMI and "I don't have mouth and I must scream".



Also, isn't the display on the DS a little bit too small? Didn't try installing SCUMMVM on my DS.

Resolution-wise it's a little small, but it can fit the screen to the DS's size. Doesn't bother me and works really well.

Actually I would have problems with COMI on the DS. For a start, you need a keyboard or the verb coin, neither of which would work very well on the DS.

There is a virtual keyboard on ScummVM DS that works very well for everything. Works very well for AGI games. The verb coin can still work as well. The stylus has 3 different modes: Hover mode, Left button mode, and Right button mode. You change between modes with the D-Pad. It wouldn't be too hard to use a verb coin with that.

I know that (I do have it), but you'd be constantly switching between mouse and keyboard. Also you can't hold mouse buttons down on there.

It would just not work "/

Ok, so i sorta collect ScummVM platforms :P

Currently i run ScummVM on: Windows(desktops running 98,me,xp and a laptop running vista), A persistent install of Fedora 9 loaded on a thumbdrive, OSX on a G4 Sawtooth, PalmOS on T-E2 and Zodiac, PocketPC on a viewsonic device, and most recently, my Ipod touch :)

I hope soon to be able to check out the PSP and Wii versions, i already have these devices but i prefer to have Backup systems first before i do anything like hacking firmwares and whatnot.

I think my goal is to pretty much play Monkey island in any way i can :)

You seem to collect a lot of games for them too. That's quite a collection you have of games, and pictures of you with them.
