And I just happen to be traveling tomorrow and I now know what I am going to do in the train! :)
Hehe, thanks, have fun!

Dear all,

I would like my kids to play ScummVM games on my iPad, but I have no idea how to proceed.
I own an iPad Pro 1st Gen on iPadOS 13 (no jailbreak).
I downloaded the latest version of the ipa (https://www.scummvm.org/frs/scummvm/2.1 ... mirrorlist).
But then how am I supposed to install it on my tablet?

Thanks for your help.

There are a million ways to do that, but none of them is supported by Apple. The official way would be to install Xcode, get the source, create the project and install that onto your iPad. It's not entirely trivial, but all other ways aren't really either.

Maybe check out reddit

Thanks for your quick answer.
I see, no easy solution indeed...
I will end up jailbreaking the device in order to sideload the ipa.

I tried it by Xcode, with Xcode 11.4 for iOS13. But the build failed because of opengles instead of Metal.
Anybody an idea or is anywhere a metal version?

To be honest, I am still on Mojave and did my builds there... But that no longer works with current iOS versions. You need professional help or input here...

Is there a new build somewhere around? Or has the build-bot been updated to provide working builds for 64 bit with MT32 emulation? What's the correct place to look for builds instead of asking here? ;)

The development builds in the page below are updated daily.
The stable builds in the same page correspond to the official ScummVM release versions (most of the time).
https://buildbot.scummvm.org/builds.html

I do not know though if the recent builds are working on iOS 11 or if they include MT32 emulation.

Criezy said he'd have to update the build pipeline, not sure if that ever happened, though...

No, the buildbot has not been updated and still provides 32 bits builds. Another developer is doing some work on buildbot currently, which may eventually result in a more modern iOS build. But that will take time.

So currently there is no regular 64 bits iOS builds available anywhere as far as I am aware.

Also I just saw the post from TheOggy above about the build failing because it uses OpenGLES and not metal. I am using the latest Xcode version myself on macOS Catalina, and I have never seen that issue. It happily compiles ScummVM with OpenGLES for me. So I have no idea what could be causing that error.

Hi, thanks for the heads up!

I think TheOggy got it working here: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=15151

I wouldn't mind a fresh build, but actually I am not having any issues with ScummVM right now, so it's not that relevant tbh.
