Preliminary version for firmware 2.0 is now available

Post by Vinterstum » Sun Jul 27, 2008 8:08 pm

To download this version:

* Add the Urbanfanatics.com source (listed under "More Sources") in Cydia. ScummVM should then appear in the list.

* Alternatively download http://urbanfanatics.com/cydia/scummvm- ... 0-pre4.deb directly, upload it to the phone, and install it with 'dpkg -i'

It seems to be running as on previous iPhone's firmware (1.1.4 for me).

I tried Indiana Jones 3 without noticeable problem.
But I also started Full Throttle and Sam&Max ... and there is no speech ! So I will try to find how, but I prepared the files for the 1.1.4 iPhone and reused the same files for the 2.0 port ... so could you check if you have the same symptoms ? Thanks in advance.

Right, the portrait mode is not showing the game. Not a real problem for playing ... should be a low priority ;)

[EDIT] MI1 has no sound at all, probably libraries to decode OGG are missing.

Yay! The most important Iphone / Ipod Touch App is finally available for 2.0. Time to break out of jail, thanks Vinterstum!

I don't mean to sound ungrateful but I was wondering how big of a job it is to port/include the missing COMI-specific (?) code? Well, no matter what great work. :)

Working great here so far! I couldn't ESC out of the intro sequence in FOTAQ, but that's probably a pre-existing thing. Not a big deal anyway :)

Great work!

Also-- I noticed Telesphorio listed your source :) Very nice.

The issue is mainly an oddity with the assembler used by the toolkit: The opcodes all need to be lowercase :). I'll look into it soon myself, or ask the maintainers about it, but it hasn't really been top priority so far.

Well I just finished DOTT using this version - thanks heaps guys! Makes my 3G much more useful now :)

This is the first time that I've used ScummVM on a mobile device, and it was a much better experience than I was expecting. I found that the "right click" functionality was a bit difficult, but otherwise the interface is great (easy enough to click on everything). One small bug - the "chattering teeth" just disappeared out of my inventory (nowhere to be found), but that could be anything (just loaded a save game).
