( http://www.adventuregamers.com/newsitem.php?id=269 ) i went to the website and i found nothing to support this...does anybody know more info about it? if you do please post it.

Yes, it's really cool. I love playing DOTT and Sam and Max on a TV.

All you need is a CD-R drive and original game discs. Burn the ScummVM program, it'll boot by itself in any Dreamcast thanks to a loophole in the DC hardware. Swap in your game disc and you're good to go.

There's no Dreamcast binary of 0.3.0 though. You should ask in #scummvm on irc.freenode.net

ok..i got ScummVM and burned it to a CD-R and every thing is okey dokey..and then when i put it in my DreamCast it does'nt work..so i'm guessing that i might need a previous version of the program...does anybody know which version i need?

That's probably because you burned the raw files instead of a disc image like Nero of Discjuggler. The disc needs an audio track to boot.

Alternatively,

http://rh14225.rh142.rh-tec.com/data/packs/gam_dem/ScummVM.zip

Get that and use...

http://rh14225.rh142.rh-tec.com/data/Sbinducr.exe

..Selfboot Inducer to make an image file out of the .sbi file in the SCUMMvm.zip, then burn in Discjuggler or Nero, whichever format you said you wanted it in. I'll leave the rest to you.

I wanna dreamcast. I wanna do this. How does it work? Doesn't it just play in the top corner of the TV?

You burn it correctly, you swap in the disc with a game on it. You play.

It's full screen, of course. Just like Maniac Mansion, Loom and Monkey Island on the good old consoles.

I just got the 0.3.0b binaries for the DreamCast from MarcusC last night - they should be posted to the ScummVM website in an hour or so.

Actually, I lie. It'll probably be tommorow, the file I was sent doesn't contain any insructions on how to add new games to it :)

Y'know, all the old sonic games from the megadrive are being released on the gamecube in a bargain price set. I wish LucasArts would do this with thier old adventures. Or Revolution. Or Adventure Soft. Or anyone who ever made a half decent adventure game!! I mean, the playstation one has Broken Sword 1 & 2, and Discworld 1 & 2. Even the goddam GBA has Broken Sword!!

There was a revolution pack for pc with Beneath a Steel Sky, Broken Sword 1 and 2 and Lure of the Temptress too I think. It isnt sold anymore though.

elTee

Yeah, Total Revolution it was called. Released on the PC briefly, I only ever saw it on amazon for about 12, a real bargain. However, all four games are still on general release. Obviously, some are harder to find than others, but try Sold Out software.

Yeah sold out do broken sword 1 and 2. It looks like they did BASS too at one time. Not any more though, meh

Well, only last year I chanced upon a copy of BASS at my local curry's in the 5 games bin. It was a sold out version. And I've seen about 3 copies of Lure of the Temptress in second hand shops and on the market since I got my copy when it was still available in HMV.

I considered buying a dreamcast just for my SCUMM games... than I deceided that I really wanted a nice PDA to play 'em. Now I think I'm back to the dreamcast. If anyone is getting rid of one, drop me a PM. Otherwise, it's e-bay time.

I might as well mention Revolution has sent the ScummVM team the sourcecode to BASS, in case we are intrested in adding support for it. And we probably will, after we finish all the SCUMM stuff :)

You can grab a NERO v5 image here:
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/scummvm/scummvm_0.3.0b-dreamcast_nero.zip

An IP.BIN ecetra archive might be coming later, for those more geeky types that like getting their hands dirty and making their own selfboot cds :P

I love my Dreamcast, with it's many emulators, game conversions and other general 'fun' things. It even has a DivX player, although your DivX file will only run should it happen to have a 40 x 30 resolution.

Plus, there's the fact that the rarer, unobtainable Japanese games are extremely small in size, when compressed, and they also happen to run without the need to mess with your Dreamcast.

But that's beside the point.

Oh, Ender, please could you tell me where I could find the binaries or the images for the previous versions of ScummVM Dreamcast? I want to see if it'll work Monkey Island 1, because this latest version just freezes at the 'LucasGames' part.

I'll save Endy some time.

Thankyou, Sir Benjamin. I could not see them upon the Downloads page.
