ScummVM on Samsung Galaxy i9000

Post by Nonjas »

Hello, I've been trying the unofficial port for Android 2.x on my Galaxy, and I was wondering a couple of things.

Is it implemented some kind of touchpad style control yet? I used it on the Iphone version and it provided great gaming experience.

Is there a virtual keyboard enabled? I found something about pressing the menu key for a couple of secs but on my Galaxy it does open a keyboard but just for web search...

For the rest, the port is working well. Tried Indiana Atlantis and Day of Tentacle.

I'm not the Android dev, but I'm glad to see you also think that the iPhone's touchpad style controls are the best way of implementing controls on a touch device. I got an iPhone recently and I agree with you.

scummvm on samsung galaxy I9000

I'm just wondering if anyone had any answers to the original post. I've just got a Samsung Galaxy S and I am new to Android.

I've installed ScummVM 1.1.1 Vorbis (not sure if it's the right one). The game ( Beneath a steel sky ) loads up fine, but I'm not sure how to use the right mouse button. Do I need to map the button to one on the phone? How would I do this?

Thanks in advance.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S. I recently upgraded it to Android 2.2 and thankfully ScummVM still works, but the keyboard problem is still there.

I guess the only way to fix this is changing the source yourself, and reassemble it, just like the guy who made it work for 2.x did.
