Great news some coders are finally porting it to Bada too!! :D
Can't wait!

For the developers:
My suggestion about Right/Left-Mouse-Button emulation: use a double tap to switch left/right mouse button mode. The solution for Nokia Symbian was very uncomfortable so I hope you won't adopt the same unintuitive menu system...

Guys,

that's just great news. I recently switched my Nokia E52 for a Samsung Wave and the only thing - besides a mail client that is really IMAP compliant ;-) - I'm desperately missing, is ScummVM.

I'd be glad to be among the alpha/beta testers, too!

Take care
Torsten

Fully agree! I'm also a Wave/bada owner and though there are a few minor glitches to be ironed out with new firmware, the Wave has great potential. bada 1.2.0 will be there soon. Smoothness, screen, code/menu locking, real phone features (redirection/caller blocking et al) make it very enjoyable.

Regrettably I had no time to take a look at the bada IDE yet. I also wanted to try to make a little app.

But I'm probably not a good enough coder for a project like ScummVM and my time is very limited currently; so I'm very very grateful for the initiative of NovaCoder and Doku.

ScummVM on bada is something I dreamt about, too.

I would also donate to such a project; I can also provide the four "Introduction to bada" PDFs by Wiley that were given away freely to bada developer zone subscribers.

PS: I wondered about the ScummVM Samsung TV port ... What kind of OS do they use in their TVs?
I guess it's too far fetched of an idea that there might be some common ground with TVs to help porting to bada?

There is Linux inside. I see no common between those TVs and Bada besides the manufacturer.

Just because I'm quite excited: What's going on? Are you still working on this? Is there already a progress? Is there a chance you might say, how far in % you are?

Omar, as far as I know, no ScummVM developer *ever* "looked" into doing a Bada port.

Developing a new port for a device usually is done by volunteers who happen to own one of these devices. So, you best bet for a Bada port is to find a somebody who owns one of these devices, and is capable of and intersted in undertaking the effort to create a ScummVM port for it.

We certainly are willing to help people interested in making a port with doing that! But there is only so much you can do without having a device in your possesion. Plus it's not much fun to work on a port you can't even use yourself, too ;).

:( Dokugogagoji and NovaCoder* said they were working on it...

Yes, but AFAIK bada SDK has an emulator inside to test the apps directly and easily.

* is he the same person who ported ScummVM to Amiga AGA recently? http://www.amiga.org/forums/showthread.php?t=55614
