    What is the whole A and B versions thing in the new version? Is it certain games work in each one?

    Well its certainly looking that way! I played through alot of it on PSP Scummvm before I sold it. Was really great. Also played through the Monkey Island games, Indiana Jones and Full Throttle. Not sure if Full Throttle will work on DS tho, will give it a shot.

    i'm 29, and yes, i consider it a ROM. Unless it's actually on a little plastic disc, I call it a ROM. May not be correct, but it's an old habit.

    I'm looking forward to playing games using this program when I get my DS. DOS games in general don't look right on Windows XP for some reason. They play well enough, but the screen dimensions are always way off. You end up with the image hidden behind the sides of the monitor and whatnot. Quite bothersome.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Read-only_memory#Types_of_ROMs and read at the bottom. If You're 29 I bet You remember those scumm games relased on floppy discs and later on CDs. There was no ROM chips included. [​IMG]

    Sorry, but The Dig and Full Throttle don't work with it: "There is no support for Full Throttle, The Dig, or The Curse of Monkey Island because of memory issues. There simply is not enough RAM on the DS to run these games. Sorry. Also there is no support for Humongous Entertainment games. The extra code required to make this work uses up enough RAM to stop many of the other games from working."

    Now to play some Maniac Mansion, Maniac Mansion 2: DOTT, and Sam & Max. Even though I've played them oh so many times before, but having the portablity of playing them anywhere is much nicer.

    Hmm this should work if they used the ram in the SCSD/M3 cards as they use ram to hold the games right.. so why not use it as normal ram or some type of swap ram ?
