How do you actually get ScummVM to run on the wii? i can get it to appear on the homebrew channel but it doesnt load. i included all the files i thought :(

ok nvm I got it to load. but how do I put games on it?

Just post your games on a folder on your SD card, so ScummVM can load them.

ok I got ScummVM to detect the file (i converted it to a .prg like the readme said). But when I try to start the game the screen goes blank and goes back to the Homebrew Channel Homepage :( . on pc it just exits out, no message or anything.

everytime I get somewhere i hit another wall!

EDIT: hmm, i managed to read the error message it gives me. it displays then exits quickly so I couldnt read it before:

A .prg file?

Unzip the download. Typically scummvm-0.12.0-wii.zip.
It will give you a scummvm folder. Put that folder in SD card's apps folder.
From the readme it says don't put your game data in the scummvm folder. I'm not sure why but I do know that it's the same for the NES and SNES emulators.
This next part will vary from person to person. I made my folder for scumm games on the SD card root like below. Everything below is a folder. You can put "game data" in apps. You can leave it out all together so you just have the games (monkey etc) anywhere. Just not in apps/scummvm.

SD card
apps/scummvm
game data/monkey, monkey2, comi

When you use scummvm's "add games" option you get shown the entire contents of the SD card. Just show scummvm where you've put the game data and OK it. Then read up on paths under the game options to find out that bit yourself.
