Recommended device for ScummVM?

Post by fisken uno »

Hey all.

Have been fooling around with ScummVM for Symbian on my Nokia 5320 Xpressmusic and is VERY impressed. However, the screen is kinda small and it would be awesome with touchscreen support and perhaps even a small keyboard. Yep, I'm looking into buying a PocketPC. I'm puzzled though... Which one should I get? I've understood that this port is kinda picky so I'd like to know which ones work WELL with ScummVM? It would be quite frustrating if I bought an expensive piece of hardware just to find out that my favorite VM won't work :)

My second question is: How's the SCI support coming along in this port? How compatible is it and does input work well with keyboard / virtual keyboard?

I have played many of the compatible games on a TyTN II.
No problems with scummVM on that phone.
Currently I use a Touch Pro2.
There have been some issues with the 480x800 screen-size but they should be solved in the next scummVM release.

I have not tested any SCI games, that engine is very much under development, take a look on the engine page in the scummVM wiki for latest status.
