Hello,

well, this is very easy: The Save/Load/Options/Quit Menu appears with the "*" button, "#" is the skip button. Just play around with the keys, the N73 has not too much of them.
For other useful keys see here: http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/SymbianOS_FAQ

kind regards

Frank

I have an N73, and the only problem I have had with FATE is when you reach the balloon sequence and it crashes if you go off the edge of the screen.

I just this second finished testing the controls for the game, to save/load/quit etc is indeed '*' as it is with most Lucasarts titles on this version od ScummVM. As for the fighting, you just use the number keys. I just beat the bouncer in New York by repeatedly pressing the number '3' to punch.

So I don't think it is a problem with ScummVM or the N73 in general. However it may be a problem with your phone. I had to take mine back for a replacement the day after I bought it as the Bluetooth was buggered.

Hallo,

@Anzati: I guess the FATE Problem is one of the known "vertical scroll bugs". It also appears in Sam&Max (and maybe others).

@vadimcostache: In don't know, whats going wrong at your phone, since using ScummVM for S60 V3 on the N73 is very easy: install and enjoy. At least for me.

kind regards

Frank

Yes I had this problem with Sam&Max at the ball of twine (did put in a bug report about that one), it also happened in 3 places in DOTT.

Have you played Gobliiins on the N73? I know I'm doing something silly, but I just can't figure out how to enter the level codes...

I can't enter the level codes and can't save game either. Nothing happens when I press the "*" key. Help please!

Don't know about the level codes (haven't played Gob 1 on a mobile), but in Gob 1 you can't save, you only GOT the codes.

In Gob 2 and all subsequent Gob engine games, to save you have to move the cursor to the upper edge of the screen so the drop-down menu would appear, highlight the diskette icon, click it and select "Save" from the resulting menu.

To enter the names, you use the oft-mentioned 0+1 button combination to enable multitap text entry, after which you will be able to enter the text as if writing an SMS.

Hey, thanks Noelemahc

But still cant't enter the level codes properly. The 0+1 button combination isn't working with Gob 1, I can only write numbers...

And use the latest svn version, since there is an input error with the offical 0.10.0 release.
