What I'm saying here is that maybe this port needs other way of interaction which might be necessary so that the gaming experience can be more enjoyable.

I was precisely thinking about that when i came to the forums today.

On Xperia Play, using the trackpad for mouse movement (as it is just a touch surface) and clicking with the L and R buttons. You would have to play it with the device open, but hey! I believe it would be a much more enjoyable experience.

Hope it is a good idea and we will see it implemented.

Thought the same Coming from the NDS port to Xplay,
D-PAD cursor or just using finger is a pain where i miss a touchsurface plus it would free D-PAD for other use.
Maybe there's hope from some xpp owner here.

Is there any chance for soundfont support on Android devices?

Mouse Support

Post by beano311 » Wed Feb 29, 2012 2:23 am

Is there any chance of proper mouse support being added to the Android version? Bluetooth mice work with Android for cursor support, as does the Asus Eee Pad Transform/Prime's trackpad, however it isn't implemented into ScummVM and works very poorly. More info here: viewtopic.php?t=11234

There's nothing incompatible with 4.0 AFAIK, no port necessary. If you need to right click and don't have any of the hard buttons, do a two finger click (http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Android#Touchscreen).

The suggestion above of using the xperia play trackpad as a mouse is a very very good one. I hope this can be implemented soon. :D

Has anyone tried this on an ICS device yet? I threw ICS (CyanogenMod 9) on my HP Touchpad for kicks, and wanted to see how the Android port compared. Installed the nightly APK, extracted the lib____.so files manually as described a few posts back, pointed my plugin path to it, and still no joy. Might take a stab at setting up a dev environment and building a more traditional all-inclusive binary for folks without storage concerns.

wishlist,

Post by imphlegm » Mon Apr 16, 2012 2:36 am

I have been a fan for years, mostly on windows mobile phone, some on note/netbook. I now have a nook tablet that has been rooted and android marketplace available. I've installed 1.4.0 and have a few requests:

1. I find I have to drag the pointer around the screen, which is totally new to me, it tends to wend itself away form me while I'm playing. I would prefer to just tap on an item, like on wince.

2. ScummVM seems to stretch everything, I don't sense aspect ratio correction.

3. I cannot perform an automatic scan when installing games.

If I understand correctly you want to use it like a touchscreen rather than a touchpad.
According to the wiki you can switch between the modes by toggling the "Mixed AdLib/MIDI mode" checkbox.

Mouse/stylus/touchpad support

Post by murgo » Tue Nov 13, 2012 11:38 pm

Hi,

there's now support for mice (USB + OTG + Bluetooth), styluses (Galaxy Note S-pen etc.), and touchpads (Asus EEE Pad Transformer etc.). Using this feature requires Android 4.0 or later.

This seems to be very highly requested issue (~10 different threads in couple of pages), so I'm mentioning it here, where people most likely will see it.

Excellent, thank you! Trying the latest build on my Nexus 10.

I would love to try out the daily build/s but it wont let me install the apk.. :(

I'm using an unrooted Nexus 7 with Android 4.2.1

When i try to install the apk through ES file explorer i simply get a message that the app wasn't installed. The store version installs fine and i already installed a couple other non-store apps through ES.

Any ideas?
