Post updated 10/17/20 - Valid for ScummVM beta 2.
-Errors will be updated or canceled as the development of the program progresses.
-Images have been added to better explain errors.


The characteristics of the game-data.zip files are not yet known.
- The game-data.zip file where it should be extracted or copied? What is this file for?

ScummVM 2.2.0: In beta 1 there were 4 installers, currently in beta 2 there are 3 installers.
In the end it will be released as a single installer .sis (I guess).
- What is the difference in the versions of the installers?
>>Each one supports different games.

Tested on Nokia Belle FP2 (Symbian), You must have your phone hacked because the program does not have a certificate yet.

+ScummVM was installed in memory E:
Important: After installing, there are 5 versions of ScummVM on my phone. Why?
To allow it to run on low memory phones. ScummVM supports phones from Symbian S60v3 onwards.
viewtopic.php?t=9803

For Symbian UIQ, S80, S90 it is not known if it will be compatible with this version. At the bottom of this page are
the installers for these versions: https://www.scummvm.org/downloads/

Currently when installing ScummVM, a folder with program files is created on partition C:
I don't know if it will be possible, but I would prefer that all ScummVM files be installed on the partition of your choice.
This would help phones with little memory space.


Emulator errors.
If automatic screen rotation is enabled:
+Phone placed vertically = ScummVM is displayed horizontally.
+Phone placed horizontally = ScummVM is displayed vertically inverted.
*ScummVM is only displayed horizontally when you disable automatic screen rotation. This bug is also present in previous versions.
Note: Show ScummVM horizontally only and lock rotation/Or develop an option within ScummVM that allows you to choose
the orientation of the screen, without being affected by automatic rotation.

This report is invalid. I just leave it here in case someone has the same doubts.
The answer is above, look for the word Important.

Merge the emulator into a single application and a single ScummVM name.
In past versions I generate a lot of confusion as there are two different versions. There are no explanations of its individual characteristics.
+Version 1: When installing it display a ScummVM 1 application (In Scummvm version 1.7.0 or earlier).
+Version 2: When installing it display two applications ScummVM 1 and ScummVM 2 (In ScummVM version 1.8.1 and earlier).


This report was fixed in beta 2.
Interface translation: Incomplete Spanish translation is still missing (Classic theme).

Re: ScummVM 2.2.0 on Symbian - Testing and bug report

Post updated 10/17/20 - Valid for ScummVM beta 2.
Tested on Nokia Belle FP2 (Symbian).

Emulator errors.
ScummVM Main Menu.
There is a bug with some games, the higher resolution it has, the ScummVM Main Menu or the notice of Pause
will look smaller in the game.
- Games with the normal size menu: Monkey Island 2/Sam & Max.
- Games where the menu is reduced in size: Blade runner/Monkey Island 3/The Neverhood/Broken Sword 2.
Screenshot: https://archive.org/download/de5_jdh768/14.png

This report was fixed in beta 2 - The main menu can be accessed within a game using the * or F5 key.
Keyboard problems (Virtual).
The dedicated key to see the Scummvm main menu in-game is f5 and it only works with some games.
From Options/Keymaps you can assign a key for the main menu.

- Games that cannot be accessed in the menu with * or F5: Blade runner/Simon the Sorcerer 1/Simon the Sorcerer 2

Solved - This bug was in ScummVM 1.8.1.
Now with the space key it allows to Pause in some games, in previous versions (1.8.1) it showed an error and closed the application.

There are some games that have their own built-in menu and cannot be paused or saved from ScummVM (Even on PC).
- Can't pause: Blade runner/Simon the Sorcerer 1/Simon the Sorcerer 2
Data can be saved only from the ScummVM menu, but it only works with some games, in others the option
to save does not appear in the menu. The quick way to see which games does not support saving is to go to
the main menu of ScummVM, select game by game and observe the Load... button.
If the button is gray color, it will not allow saving or loading games.

- Games that don't allow saving data: Simon the Sorcerer 1/Simon the Sorcerer 2

Volume controls do not work directly from the device, only from the application.
Note: Add the support to control the volume directly from the device.
Screenshot: https://archive.org/download/de5_jdh768/11.png

It is uncomfortable to play the game horizontally, while the letters on the keyboard are vertical.
Note: Change the orientation of the virtual keyboard letters (horizontal-vertical), depending on the orientation of the phone.

Tested on Nokia Belle FP2 (Symbian).

Emulator bugs.
When gaming (in any game), the screen has a thin line on the bottom that reflects the top side (Or vice versa).
- When opening the program in the main menu a thin line appears. Can be viewed faster by opening a game and Return to Launcher.
Screenshot: https://archive.org/download/de5_jdh768/1.png

In Options/Misc/GUI language and Edit Game, it is necessary to implement a scroll bar or reduce the space between them.
- When expanding the languages not all are displayed, some are off the screen (Greek/Ukrainian).
Note: The options appear completely in the Classic Theme, the clipping of the options is given in the Modern Themes.
Screenshot: https://archive.org/download/de5_jdh768/2.png

Lack of options.
It remains to add more graphic modes (2xSAI/SuperEagle/HQ2x/Super2xSAI), there is only the Normal mode.
Screenshot: https://archive.org/download/de5_jdh768/9.png

Games test - beta 2 (They still require optimization, especially Discworld 2 which under its optimization).
- Blade runner: Requires optimization, voice lags behind video and in game when you interact.
- Discworld 2: Requires optimization, voice lags behind video (in the intro).
- Sherlock Holmes The case of the Rose tatto: Requires optimization (slows down).

Add a minimize (MIN) key shortcut to the virtual Qwerty keyboard (ABC).
Pressing the square brings up a row of hotkeys.
With the ABC key you can access the Qwerty keyboard, but there is no key to minimize without closing the shortcut bar.
- We only have the CUR key that accesses the numeric keyboard and the <0> key to hide everything (inside qwerty keyboard).
Screenshot: https://archive.org/download/de5_jdh768/3.png

Another key on the bar is CUR, which allows us to access the numeric keyboard. Here is the MIN key to minimize without closing the bar.
Note: The minimize key (MIN) that is on the numeric keyboard (CUR) must be added to the Qwerty keyboard (ABC).
*It would improve interaction on touch screens.

Tested on Nokia Belle FP2 (Symbian) - ScummVM beta 2.

Critical error on the virtual keyboard.
Overlapping letters one on top of the other.
Reproduce the bug:
- Enter the numeric keyboard with CUR.
- Activates the Control CTL key.
- Press FNC + # (3 times).
Screenshot: https://archive.org/download/de5_jdh768/4.png

Residual image of the virtual keyboard.
Reproduce the bug:
- Activates the Control CTL key.
- Press * + 2 + 2 or it can also be activated with 2 + * + 2

Numeric keypad error when typing a name to save game data.
Reproduce the bug:
- Save game data.
- Write the name with all the numbers.
- When you type the 0 or # key, it is pressed infinitely by itself.
- The number 9 does not write, it only jumps between options.
Screenshot: https://archive.org/download/de5_jdh768/15.png

Failed to load a save game?
I still don't know if this is a bug or a feature that is already there or that they wanted to implement.
The data is saved in files .s00, s01, s02... and so on. Each one belongs to a number in the Save game list.
The number 0 is a dedicated key for loading Saved game data.
The problem is that the only one it recognizes is the .s10 file.
I think the feature they wanted to implement was that it would recognize the most recent Save game file.
Or could it just be a mistake?
Screenshot: https://archive.org/download/de5_jdh768/13.png

The other error is that ScummVM does not perform automatic Save games.
I have played several games for hours and none have saved anything, it does not even appear in the save list.
ScummVM has the option to save data automatically, every 5, 10, 15, 30 minutes.
It does not work...

I have not been able to get the direction key to work.
Try various ways, it doesn't work.
Does it work with a specific game?
Screenshot: https://archive.org/download/de5_jdh768/7.png

Finally a silly request.
Rename the ScummVM S60v3 installer to ScummVM only.
