ScummVM 0.7.0 Released

ScummVM 0.7.0 has been released, just in time for Christmas Eve.  It comes with the following improvements:

  • Added preliminary support for 26 Humongous Entertainment titles
  • Added support for FLAC (lossless) encoded audio files
  • Added native support for Macintosh versions of some SCUMM games — this means the ‘rescumm’ tool is now mostly obsolete, and you can now play those games directly from the original CD
  • Added smooth horizontal scrolling for The Dig, Full Throttle and COMI (matching the original engine)
  • Added support for compressed speech and music in Broken Sword 1 and 2
  • And as usual, we fixed lots and lots of bugs

ScummVM for Dreamcast!

I love adventure games, so my current favorite emulator is definitely the new one that’s aimed at the LucasArts SCUMM adventures, ScummVM. It began life last year, but now it’s become even better since there’s now a preview port by Mark Thomas for the Dreamcast!

This version is based on ScummVM 0.1.0, which has better support for Full Throttle and preliminary support for The Dig!
