    Great effort! I notice that as a lot of the old SCUMM games pre-Curse Of Monkey Island (and also stuff like Flight Of The Amazon Queen which incidentally only adds on the CIA version, not the 3DSX version or Beneath A Steel Sky) have a 320x200 or 320x240 type resolution and this being close or identical to the 3DS bottom screen you're getting a nice 1:1 pixel mapping without scaling so it's pin sharp, if letterboxed (16:10 resolution on a 4:3 screen if it's 320x200).

    As a feature request, would it be possible to have this on the top screen as well, since it's 400x240? Sure it'd be window boxed but it'd make a lot more sense if you're only running one screen.

    What I have noticed, running O3DSXL via A9LH on firmware 11.0 is that I'm still getting lag on most games, which leads to tiny audio dropouts or a clicking effect. Not sure why as I'm specifically encountering this on the SE converted versions of Secret Of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge which have had the audio converted to OGG which I assumed wouldn't make much difference from MP3? Correct me if I'm wrong. Doesn't occur on the PSP nightlies which I'm trying via TN-V on the Vita using exactly the same versions. Incidentally the PSP version also takes a long time to add new game entries due to having to scan for all supported games so it's not 3DS specific, therefore wouldn't be considered a bug of this version.

    Overall though, considering how new this project is, this represents yet another excellent highly playable ScummVM port and all the classic point-and-click games that go with it. Thanks!

    Hey man, I've been looking forward to a scummvm port since homebrew was first available, so great work. But I have a problem, Maybe I missed something simple. I installed the cia on an o3ds that's running luma on 11.0 via a9lh. I setup full throttle but when I launch it, it loads up the Lucas arts logo, hangs for a sec then forces a system restart. I see you have this game working, so what gives? (honestly, it's the only game I care about atm)

    Nvm, I jumped the gun and didn't fully read your op like a fucking noob. Completely skipped the dsp dump instructions. Sorry brother. It works great :grog:

    Heh. Now that I think about it, I should get it to not crash in the absence of a dsp dump (though it's fine for some games). It'll process the audio and just cleanly ignore it.

    Playing CIA 0.3 version on old 3ds luma A9lh - DSP dumped

    games tested ok :
    - Flight of the Amazon
    - Future wars
    - Indiana jone and the last cruisade (FM-towns)
    - Lure of the temptress
    - MI SE classic extracted with ogg tracks

    issue :
    - kyrandia claiming for kyra.dat corrupted
    - Simon the sorcerer 1 is running but very slow here too, i'll recheck when getting a n3ds
    - Loom cd talking : hang a while before accessing any sampled sound (shrinking the speech mp3 file doesn't make any difference) will try ogg.
    edit : ogg works very well, no more seeking

    - Discworld (CD DOS) is running but bringing menu with start hangs the system, forcing to manual shutdown. I was unable to save either.

    suggestion :
    - can't navigate in home menu list with dpad
    actually, "down" d-pad "down" makes it quit, "left"/ "right" instead of jumping to another letter makes it go 1 line up or down and start the highlighted game.
    edit : it's the actual layout of d-pad

    - Enable/disable mouse cursor un upper screen

    But overall, this is one of the best things to have on 3ds now
    i prefer playing this over any other portable version of scummVM.

    Maniac Mansion (NES version) has no sound or music. Tried the 3DSX and CIA (with DSP dump) versions, game runs very well just no audio.

    EDIT: Tried it with DOTT and the audio is working on that, so I know I didn't set it up wrong.

    Any sufficiently large app should work. For example, the Retroarch thread suggests the Monster Hunter or Super Smash Bros demos as well.

    I don't have any of those, but I have the full version of Smash. Will that work?

    i dont think MM was the only NES game that ran in ScummVM atleast on PC, if there are others test which ones might give sound otherwise it maybe just something not supported yet w/ this Port.

    According to my research MM is the only one. There was a Famicom version of MM, but it didn't run on the SCUMM engine.

    further testing :

    Elvira 1&2 (amiga) : working but bringing game menu makes it hang .
    Fascination, Lost in time, Ween the prophecy are all affected by a very slow fading effect.

    Converting audio track to OGG seems to have solved the latency issues with Loom

    Just compiled the 3DS version from the official 1.8.1 source and it seems to be working other than a crash when closing the start or select menus. Good work though :)

    The only thing I'm going to do (hopefully this week) is get ScummVM working on their buildbot so releases can be packaged and released on the official site. Otherwise I won't get to this until freeShop is done. But I will get back to this, simply don't have enough time. I also made an initial port of ResidualVM (with extremely slow software renderer) I'd like to complete. I have a lot of things I'd like to work on, oh well...
