All the inane chatter goes in here. If you're curious about whether we will support a game, post HERE not in General Discussion :)

It's not supported yet, but you can try to play using a daily build of ScummVM.

You can find them in the 'Subversion Builds' section of the Downloads page of the ScummVM website.

We generally expect people to read the documentation and at least make an effort themselves; it would be better if you try yourself, and then you can come back with any specific questions you may have later.

It's pretty straightforward. You download the link specifically labeled Subversion Daily Build or whatever, install it, and run it. Bam. Done.

In what directory? Did you copy all the required files to a folder on your hard drive?

create directory for game (ie: c:\scummvm\myst\)

copy entire contents of myst cd to this directory.

install SVN version of scummvm

click "add game" in scummvm

browse to the directory you created and copied myst too.

Once game is detected it will be added.

Clic to start game.

watch an intro movie maybe play and then not be able to do much else.

congrats, you started myst in scummvm.

if one of those steps gives you a problem, then come back and post a detailed description of exactly what error you got, and everything you have already tried to get it to work.

Dont bother wasting anyones time with vague statements like "nothing happened". No one can help you unless they understand the details.
