    Hey. I have a problem with using scummVM on my DS. I downloaded the official scummVMDS off the website, so the copy should be working fine. But the thing never seems to recognise the games that I copy onto the folder. I'm trying to play the secret of monkey island (and I know, I need to use scummVM_A), which I'll admit, I don't technically "own". However, the copy that I "acquired" runs from a DVD so I figured it would work the same way as in the tutorial I saw when the guy just copies the files off the disc (at least I think that's what you're supposed to do). Anyway, I copied all the files that are extracted when I run the game setup (for the CD version, if that also makes a difference) onto my MicroSD card etc etc. But then, the game is never noticed in the ScummVM browser that appears after clicking 'Add Game".

    Please let me know if I'm doing something wrong here, I really, really wanna play Monkey Island and it looks HORRIBLE on my pc!

    make sure you are using the 0.13.1 final version of scummvmds.

    a list of the data files you need to run the cd version of MI can be found here:
    http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Datafile...y_Island.2C_The

    the audio needs to be reencoded to work on the nds. so rip out the tracks as wav and then encode them as instructed here:
    http://scummvm.drunkencoders.com/#cdaudio

    there are 24 audio files and 2 data files that you will need. your files can be in any sub directory as scummvmds allows you select the folder.

    God damnit! This dumbass thing was working all along. I guess it was ridiculous of me to imagine that the files it needs would appear in the browser that it makes to find the files (DUH! [​IMG] [​IMG] ).
    So, yeahhhhhhh. Thanks for your help but all I had to do was select "Choose" . I thought it wasn't working as I couldn't see the files in the browser.

    Well I have it running! The controls are a pain in the ass but it's kinda cool anyway. Is there any particular reason why a save file from the computer version of scummVM can't be loaded on the DS version? I tried loading the game I started the other day on the PC and it led to a control panel saying ERROR.
