Adventure fans you read right ! The classic bloody gore sex fetish PC game Phantasmagoria part 1 and 2 are playable on your PS VITA or PSTV with the updated version of ScummVM v2.7.0. Maybe some one remember this games was released on insane 7 CDRoms or 5CDRoms ! I was also try this games on my Wii and PS3 with DosBox and the result was not good. The VITA seems the first one with the best possible result. ScummVM was having tons of problems with Phantasmagoria, but since the update from 2.6.0 its working and with 2.7.0 a lot of fixes right now. This games are so big and intense, so just create a own topic.

Trailer:


( works also on PS3 and Nintendo Wii )


you need:
- ScummVM v2.7.0 VITA, install on your VITA
- Phantasmagoria 1 GOG version English, data files installed on your PC - 2GB

- create a Rom Folder for ScummVM in 'data'
- copy complete GOG folder Phantasmagoria 1/2 to your Rom Folder
- start ScummVM
- select ONLY game folder for add new game ! Dont select data files !

problems:
- do only open one game ! when you close the game and start a other one it will mostly crash.
fix easy restart ScummVM new.
- dont use high res textures
- start the game and wait 1 or 2 minutes on black screen ! after that it will work perfect.
- Phantasmagoria 2 need GOG FIX version

Phantasmagoria 1 Result:
- complete working from start to end !
- perfect framerate.
- watching mostly all videos and it was working great.

@ SuperDan :

Same as you, never try out ScummVM, but Phantasmagoria was new on compatible list. I have done Phantasmagoria 1 and its works perfect ! Phantasmagoria 2 I am on chapter 3 Disc 3, its the half, working perfect so far ! Amazing, million thanks to ScummVM team for the port. I had request last year a PC port of Phantasmagoria, now its working. I was not having the same good result on the Wii or PS3.

BTW :
Its highly possible that X-Files Game PC version will also work ! It was also a 7 CDRom game, great the same like Phantasmagoria. Will test later. Since the PSX copy dont work on any system correctly.
EDIT : X-Files dont work, CDRom version

! Extra Note 2 :
Phantasmagoria 1 & 2 works also on PS3 system with ScummVM 2.7.0. But textures are not so good compare to Vita system.

PS3 :
https://www.scummvm.org/downloads/
https://downloads.scummvm.org/frs/scummvm/2.7.0/scummvm-2.7.0-ps3.zip

compare texture quality Phantasmagoria 1 & 2 - PSTV - Wii - PS3 :

PSVITA/TV : has best texture quality ! 1080p / but longest loading time in the beginning
Nintendo Wii : its not a HD console, but texture quality is mostly good / fast loading time over SD Card
PS3 : texture quality is not so good compare to the VITA system / fastest loading time

EDIT :
PS2 is on version 1.7.0 ScummVM, need update for Phatasmagoria.

Extra Note :

Found a other way to get X-Files Game to work. Since the PC version is not compatible, was re-try the PSX version.

The PSX version from X-Files make a lot of problems with texture erros and missing music, on PS2 with original disc or with pops fmcb, PS3 rebug, Wii Emulation, PSVita Adrenalin, nothing works there. The ONLY way to play the PSX version perfect is over original disc and original PSX system, otherwise PC Emulation.

Emu4Vita Arch v.1.08 is the first homebrew emulator who can perfect work with the X-Files Game on the VITA ! I have done complete Disc1-4, Yeah, million thanks.
There is only one problem, I can not change the Disc over the setting menu, so Disc 1 to Disc 2. Otherwise I must try to recreate a PSX save file on the PC system and convert it to Vita back for the jump to Disc 2,3,4.
Otherwise X-Files Disc 1 German PSX PAL fully working now on VITA !
