Hello. Can somebody help me, how to run Eob on my Android phone. Is it possible?
I have all game-files in a folder. Scumm is telling me that there was no game found in this location. other games like maniac mansion are running fine.
I also installed the kyran-addon.

Thanks already[/quote]

The EOB subengine was NOT enabled for release builds during v1.5.0 which is the last stable release in the Google Play store and is very outdated.. It has not been updated for ... REASONS (See other threads on this in this subforum).

You didn't mention which version of ScummVM you are using, but you will need to install at least v1.6.0 to play this.

I suggest installing the latest v1.7.0git daily build from here:
http://buildbot.scummvm.org/builds.html

There are some pitfalls to avoid when installing daily builds. They are listed here:
http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Android#Daily_Builds

Please read this... especially the instruction to remove all current ScummVM executables and plugins.

To do this, Go to Settings->Apps->All (At bottom of screen) and then remove all ScummVM packages by touching them and clicking the Uninstall button on the App Info window.
