ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this: ScummVM just replaces the executables shipped with the game, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed!

You can obtain it either by using Mokomakefile via

# make build-package-scummvm

or using a binary, like so:

# wget
# wget
# wget
# opkg install libmpeg2-0_0.4.0b-r4_armv4t.ipk libvorbis_1.0.1-r2_armv4t.ipk scummvm_0.9.1-r4_armv4t.ipk

Monky Island

The games are copyrighted so you'll only be able to play those you own. You can also download some free games from and from the Home of the Underdogs.

When starting ScummVM use the command

# openmoko-scummvm

This will map AUX button to the F5 key, which is used to access the ScummVM menu. You should also find an entry on the main menu under Games.

Note: The AUX button does not work. There is no way to exit the game besides doing a killall scummvm.

Note: It would be great if it where possible to get audio through the headphones and speaker muted.

More information on ScummVM can be found on the official site

Monkey Island 2

To be able to play Monkey Island 2 you need to pass ScummVM a parameter:

root@fic-gta01:/$ DISPLAY=:0 openmoko-scummvm --boot-param=10001 monkey2

For easy access from the menu you can create a menu entry by creating the file /usr/share/applications/monkeyisland2.desktop with the following content:

Comment=Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge
Exec=openmoko-scummvm --boot-param=10001 monkey2
