Hello,

you have to point to the directory where you have placed the games before, likely on the SD Card (internal or external). The games are not included in ScummVM, you have to buy them extra (if you don't own them already). Some are available as free downloads in the ScummVM downloads. In the Wiki is described, which files from the Games you need for ScummVM.

BTW: I think, its better to use a download from this Website. I'm not sure, if the market version is up to date. Also you can not access the right mouse click on a Galaxy S due to the lack of hardware buttons on the SGS. But there are alternatives dealing with this problem:

The only part of the Broken Sword games that is hosted here is the cutscene movies, not the complete games. (Revolution only released some of their earlier games as freeware.)

This was originally because we couldn't support the original Smacker movies. Now I guess it's because we no longer support the MPEG movies that were used as an initial solution and included with one of the re-releases of the game.

If you're still talking about a directory of Broken Sword files downloaded from the ScummVM web site, the reason it won't find any game there is that there's no game to be found. Only some cutscene movie files.

If that's not what you're talking about, I don't understand the question. (No surprise there; I don't own any Android phone.)

besides the plugins you also need to have GAMES for those plugins
so, if you have a game which scummvm supports you copy it to your SD card, then point ScummVM to it

So a good start is the FREE games available from ScummVM, those are among others LURE, Flight of the Amazon queen and a couple more.
