Can soone explain how I am meant to try this nightly builds? I downloaded the pack form the buildbot page linked in the 1st post in this thread

And there is a archive file wit ha TON of diffrent.pak files..

What do I do with them? I know that a .pak file is a "install" file.. but why is there is many...

After much pain and suffering I got this worked out! Thanks for some help from the scummvm irc channel.

1) - Uninstall your current copy of ScummVM. (Note this will loose you your save games unless you have used the save game path option to save your games to a specific folder, if you have done that after install you can point to same folder and your game files will show up)

2) Use AndroidZip to extract the engine files you wish to use. If you do not know, extract ALL of them.

This will extract a lot of data and a bunch of folders, the folder we are looking for is called "/mylib/armeabi" In here are all the engine files for the various engines that scummVM supports.

3) Run the scummvm.apak file ... this installs scummvm itself. (the GUI loader thing)

4) Run the app, go into options, select PATHS and set the PLUGIN PATH (4th button) to where you extracted the apaks and find the directory "/mylib/armeabi"

When you are doing this in the app itself you should see a mass of files named *.so in the file list if you are in the correct dir.

5) Hit OK and now set your game path as normal.. and it should now be able to recognize the game and add it to your game list so you can play it. You may need to restart the app for it to work.

WOOT!!!
