I think you can put the games in another volume, like you do with the NES roms.
They are not on the same location as the NES.app itself.
So it doesn't count against the 50 MB but against the 8 or 16 GB

So you put them in /var/root for example? Cool.

Yeah, I would guess something like that.
NES is /var/root/Media/ROMs or so?

And the iTunes lib is also in /var/root/Media

So plenty of room for all my fav games! :)

I loved scumm on my psps, the thing was that the psp control for the game kinda sucks but the ipod touch is perfect! It would be amazing!

Has anyone tried it?

I only have 1 Scumm game (Beneath a Steel Sky) I downloaded from here-
http://www.scummvm.org/downloads.php#extras

The game runs on the Mac version of ScummVR, but doesn't get past a couple of title screens on my iPod Touch.

If anyone can also try this game, please report your results.

EDIT- I tried the other game that is available on that page for download (Flight of the Amazon Queen), and it works just fine. I don't have sound yet, but will play with the settings...

Thanks!

sorry for this question but what is SummVM.
Scumm is a scripting language developed at LucasArts to ease development of the graphical adventure game Maniac Mansion. ScummVM emulates Scumm, it basicly allows you to play all the "old" lucasarts games such as Loom, monkey island, king quest, Indiana Jones, etc.

This is friggin awesome! :)

I now have a NES and Scumm on my Touch :D. There is simply no reason right now or in the near future for me to ever have my Touch without a Jailbreak installed. This is how the iPod touch is meant to be, sorry Apple...


I still haven't 'upgraded' from 1.1.1 yet - I don't see a need to, and I really don't want to lose all my settings etc :p

there are no legal sites to download full copyrighted games. just try your luck at the various torrent sites.

I was able to find this archive, but inside there are a bunch of folders like "ScummVM games Not Compressible", etc. How can you tell which ones to copy to the Touch?
