1.0) Introduction:
---- -------------
1.1) About ScummVM:
---- --------------
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!
Originally it was designed to run LucasArts' SCUMM games, such as Maniac
Mansion, Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle or Sam and Max. SCUMM stands
for 'Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion', which was the first
game for which LucasArts designed this system. And much later it gave
its name to ScummVM ('VM' meaning Virtual Machine).
Over time support for a lot of non-SCUMM games has been added, and
ScummVM now also supports many of Sierra's AGI and SCI games (such as King's
Quest 1-6, Space Quest 1-5, ...), Discworld 1 and 2, Simon the Sorcerer 1 and
2, Beneath A Steel Sky, Lure of the Temptress, Broken Sword I and II, Flight of
the Amazon Queen, Gobliiins 1-3, The Legend of Kyrandia series, many of
Humongous Entertainment's children's SCUMM games (including Freddi Fish and
Putt Putt games) and many more. You can find a full list with details on which
adventures are supported and how well on the compatibility page. ScummVM is
continually improving, so check back often.
Among the systems on which you can play those games are regular desktop
computers (running Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, ...), game consoles
(Dreamcast, Nintendo DS & Wii, PS2, PSP, ...), smartphones (Android,
iPhone, PocketPC, Symbian ...) and more.
At this time ScummVM is still under heavy development. Be aware that
whilst we attempt to make sure that many games can be completed with few
major bugs, crashes can happen and we offer no warranty. That being said,
some of the games have been supported for a long time and should work
fine with any recent stable release. You can get a feeling of how well
each game is working in ScummVM by looking at the compatibility page.
Actually if you browse a bit around you might discover that ScummVM is
even being used commercially to re-release some of the supported games on
modern platforms. This shows that several companies are happy with the
quality of the software and how well it can run some of the games.

ScummVM homepage. This will help us buy utilities needed to develop
ScummVM easier and quicker. If you cannot donate, help and contribute a
1.2) Quick start:
---- ------------
For the impatient among you, here is how to get ScummVM running in five
simple steps.
1. Download ScummVM from and
install it.
2. Create a directory on your hard drive and copy the game datafiles
from the original media to this directory. Repeat this for every game
you want to play.
3. Start ScummVM, choose 'Add game', select the directory with the game
datafiles (do not try to select the datafiles themselves!) and press
4. A dialog should popup allowing you to configure various settings if
you wish to (it should be just fine to leave everything at its default,
though). Confirm the dialog.
5. Select the game you want to play in the list, and press 'Start'.
In the future, you should be able to directly skip to step 5, unless you
want to add more games.
Hint: If you want to add multiple games in one go, try pressing and
holding the shift key before clicking 'Add game' -- its label will
change to 'Mass Add' and if you press it, you are again asked to select
a directory, only this time ScummVM will search through all
subdirectories for supported games.
2.0) Contact:
---- --------
The easiest way to contact the ScummVM team is by submitting bug reports
(see section 2.1) or by using our forums at .
You can also join and e-mail the scummvm-devel mailing list, or chat
with us on IRC (#scummvm on Please do not ask us to
support an unsupported game -- read the FAQ on our web site first.
2.1) Reporting Bugs:
---- ---------------
To report a bug, please create a SourceForge account and follow the
"Bug Tracker" link from our homepage. Please make sure the bug is
reproducible, and still occurs in the latest git/Daily build version.
Also check the known problems list (below) and the compatibility list
on our website for that game, to ensure the issue is not already known:
Please do not report bugs on games that are not listed as being
completeable in the 'Supported Games' section, or compatibility list. We
-know- those games have bugs.
Please include the following information:
    - ScummVM version (PLEASE test the latest git/Daily build)
    - Bug details, including instructions on reproducing
    - Language of game (English, German, ...)
    - Version of game (talkie, floppy, ...)
    - Platform and Compiler (Win32, Linux, FreeBSD, ...)
    - Attach a savegame if possible
    - If this bug only occurred recently, please note the last version
      without the bug, and the first version including the bug. That way
      we can fix it quicker by looking at the changes made.
Finally, please report each issue separately; do not file multiple issues
on the same ticket. (Otherwise, it gets difficult to track the status of
each individual bug).

The following games are based on the SCUMM engine, but NOT supported
by ScummVM (yet):
     Other Humongous Entertainment games
Please be aware that the engines may contain bugs and unimplemented
features that sometimes make it impossible to finish the game. Save
often, and please file a bug report (instructions on submitting bug
reports are above) if you encounter such a bug in a 'supported' game.
3.1) Copy Protection:
---- ----------------
The ScummVM team does not condone piracy. However, there are cases where
the game companies (such as LucasArts) themselves bundled 'cracked'
executables with their games -- in these cases the data files still
contain the copy protection scripts, but the interpreter bypasses them
(similar to what an illegally cracked version might do, only that here
the producer of the game did it). There is no way for us to tell the
difference between legitimate and pirated data files, so for the games
where we know that a cracked version of the original interpreter was
sold at some point, ScummVM will always have to bypass the copy
In some cases ScummVM will still show the copy protection screen. Try
entering any answer. Chances are that it will work.
ScummVM will skip copy protection in the following games:
  * Beneath a Steel Sky
      -- bypassed with kind permission from Revolution Software.
  * Dreamweb
      -- a list of available commands in the in-game terminals is now shown
         when the player uses the 'help' command
  * Inherit the Earth: Quest for the Orb (Floppy version)
      -- bypassed with kind permission from Wyrmkeep Entertainment,
         since it was bypassed in all CD releases of the game.
  * Loom (EGA DOS)
  * Maniac Mansion
  * Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge
  * Simon the Sorcerer 1 (Floppy version)
  * Simon the Sorcerer 2 (Floppy version)
      -- bypassed with kind permission from Adventure Soft,
         since it was bypassed in all CD releases of the game.
  * The Secret of Monkey Island (VGA)
  * Waxworks
  * Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders
3.2) Commodore64 games notes:
---- ------------------------
Both Maniac Mansion and Zak McKracken run but Maniac Mansion is not yet
playable. Simply name the D64 disks "maniac1.d64" and "maniac2.d64"
respectively "zak1.d64" and "zak2.d64", then ScummVM should be able to
automatically detect the game if you point it at the right directory.
Alternatively, you can use 'extract_mm_c64' from the tools package to
extract the data files. But then the game will not be properly
autodetected by ScummVM, and you must make sure that the platform is set
to Commodore64. We recommend using the much simpler approach described
in the previous paragraph.
3.3) Maniac Mansion NES notes:
---- -------------------------
Supported versions are English GB (E), French (F), German (G), Italian (I),
Swedish (SW) and English US (U). ScummVM requires just the PRG section 
to run and not the whole ROM.
In order to get the game working, you will have to strip out the first
16 bytes from the ROM you are trying to work with. Any hex editor will
work as long as you are able to copy/paste.  After you open the ROM with
the hex editor, copy everything from the second row (17th byte) to the
end. After you do this, paste it to a new hex file. Name the new file
"Maniac Mansion (XX).prg" while XX stands for the version you are
working with (E, F, G, I, SW, or U).  The final size should be exactly
262144 bytes.
If you add the game manually make sure that the platform is set to NES.
Most common mistakes which prevents the game from running:
  * Bad file
  * ROM extracted with the 0.7.0 tools
  * You try to feed ScummVM with the FULL ROM and not just the PRG
It is also possible to extract the separate LFL files from the PRG
section. To do so use the 'extract_mm_nes' utility from the tools
3.4) Macintosh games notes:
---- ----------------------
All LucasArts SCUMM based adventures, except COMI, also exist in versions
for the Macintosh. ScummVM can use most (all?) of them, however, in some
cases some additional work is required. First off, if you are not using
a Macintosh for this, accessing the CD/floppy data might be tricky. The
reason for this is that the mac uses a special disk format called HFS
which other systems usually do not support. However, there are various
free tools which allow reading such HFS volumes. For example
"HFVExplorer" for Windows and "hfsutils" for Linux and other Unix-like
operating systems.
Most of the newer games on the Macintosh shipped with only a single data
file (note that in some cases this data file was made invisible, so you
may need extra tools in order to copy it). ScummVM is able to directly
use such a data file; simply point ScummVM at the directory containing
it, and it should work (just like with every other supported game).
We also provide a tool called 'extract_scumm_mac' in the tools package
to extract the data from these data files, but this is neither required
nor recommended.
For further information on copying Macintosh game files to your hard
disk see:
3.5) Multi-CD games notes:
---- ---------------------
In general, ScummVM does not deal very well with Multi-CD games. This is
because ScummVM assumes everything about a game can be found in one
directory. Even if ScummVM does make some provisions for asking the user
to change CD, the original game executables usually installed a small
number of files to the hard disk. Unless these files can be found on all
the CDs, ScummVM will be in trouble.
Fortunately, ScummVM has no problems running the games entirely from
hard disk, if you create a directory with the correct combination of
files. Usually, when a file appears on more than one CD you can pick
either of them.
3.6) The Curse of Monkey Island notes:
---- ---------------------------------
For this game, you will need the comi.la0, comi.la1 and comi.la2 files.
The comi.la0 file can be found on either CD, but since they are
identical it doesn't matter which one of them you use.
In addition, you will need to create a "resource" subdirectory
containing all of the files from -both- "resource" subdirectories on the
two CDs. Some of the files appear on both CDs, but again they're
3.7) Broken Sword games notes:
---- -------------------------
The instructions for the Broken Sword games are for the Sold-Out
Software versions, with each game on two CDs, since these were the
versions most easily available at the time ScummVM gained support for
them. Hopefully they are general enough to be useful to other releases
as well.
3.7.1) Broken Sword games cutscenes:
------ -----------------------------
The cutscenes for the Broken Sword games have a bit of a history (see
the next section, if you are interested), but in general all you need to
do is to copy the .SMK files from the "SMACKS" or "SMACKSHI" directories
on the CDs to the same directory as the other game data files. (Broken
Sword has a "SMACKSLO" directory with the same cutscenes, but these are
of lower quality.) You can put them in a subdirectory called "video" if
you find that neater.
For the PlayStation versions, you can dump the original videos off the
disc. For each of the files ending in an "STR" extension, you should
dump them as *raw* sectors off the disc (all 2352 bytes per sector). You
may also use the re-encoded cutscenes mentioned below instead, but this
will not work for all videos in Broken Sword II. For more information,
Some re-releases of the games, as well as the PlayStation version, do
not have Smacker videos. Revolution Software has kindly allowed us to
provide re-encoded cutscenes for download on our website:
These cutscenes are provided in DXA format with FLAC audio. Their
quality is equal to the original games due to the use of lossless
compression. Viewing these cutscenes requires a version of ScummVM
compiled with both FLAC and zlib support.
For systems that are too slow to handle the decoding of FLAC audio, the
audio for these cutscenes is also provided separately as OGG Vorbis
audio. Viewing these cutscenes with OGG Vorbis audio requires a version
of ScummVM compiled with both libVorbis and zlib support.
For Broken Sword, we also provide a subtitles add-on. Simply unpack it
and follow the instructions in its readme.txt file. The subtitle pack
currently does not work when running PlayStation videos. (Broken Sword
II already has subtitles; no extra work is needed for them.)
3.7.2) Broken Sword games cutscenes, in retrospect:
------ --------------------------------------------
The original releases of the Broken Sword games used RAD Game Tools's
Smacker™ format. As RAD was unwilling to open the older legacy
versions of this format to us, and had requested we not reverse engineer
it, an alternative solution had to be found.
In Broken Sword II, it was possible to play back the voice-over without
playing the video itself. This remained a fallback until ScummVM 1.0.0,
but was never the only solution for any stable release.
In ScummVM 0.6.0 we used MPEG, which provided a reasonable trade-off
between size and quality. In ScummVM 0.10.0 this was superseded by DXA
(originally added for AdventureSoft's "The Feeble Files"). This gave us
a way of providing the cutscenes in the exact same quality as the
originals, at the cost of being larger.
Finally, in early 2006, the Smacker format was reverse engineered for
the FFmpeg project. Thanks to their hard work, ScummVM 1.0.0 now
supports the original cutscenes. At the same time, MPEG support was
dropped. From a technical standpoint, this was a good thing since
decoding MPEG movies added a lot of complexity, and they didn't look as
good as the Smacker and DXA versions anyway.
3.7.3) Broken Sword:
------ -------------
For this game, you will need all of the files from the clusters
directories on both CDs. For the Windows and Macintosh versions, you
will also need the speech.clu files from the speech directories, but
since they are not identical you will need to rename them speech1.clu
and speech2.clu for CD 1 and 2 respectively. The PlayStation version
requires the, speech.dat, speech.lis, and speech.inf.
In addition, the Windows and Macintosh versions require a music
subdirectory with all of the files from the music subdirectories on
both CDs. Some of these files appear on both CDs, but in these cases
they are either identical or, in one case, so nearly identical that it
makes little difference. The PlayStation version requires tunes.dat and
3.7.4) Broken Sword II:
------ ----------------
For this game, you will need all of the files from the clusters
directories on both CDs. (Actually, a few of them may not be strictly
necessary, but the ones that I'm uncertain about are all fairly small.)
You will need to rename the speech.clu and music.clu files speech1.clu,
speech2.clu, music1.clu and music2.clu so that ScummVM can tell which
ones are from CD 1 and which ones are from CD 2. Any other files that
appear in both cluster directories are identical. Use whichever you
In addition, you will need the cd.inf and, optionally, the startup.inf
files from the sword2 directory on CD 1.
3.8) Beneath a Steel Sky notes:
---- --------------------------
Starting with ScummVM 0.8.0 you need the additional 'SKY.CPT' file to
run Beneath a Steel Sky.
This file is available on the 'Downloads' page of the ScummVM website.
You can place it in either the directory containing the other game data
files (SKY.DNR, SKY.DSK), in your extrapath, or in the directory where
your ScummVM executable resides.
3.9) Flight of the Amazon Queen notes:
---- ---------------------------------
In order to use a non-freeware version of Flight of the Amazon Queen
(from original CD), you will need to place the 'queen.tbl' file
(available from the 'Downloads' page on our website) in either the
directory containing the 'queen.1' game data file, in your extrapath, or
in the directory where your ScummVM executable resides.
Alternatively, you can use the 'compress_queen' tool from the tools
package to 'rebuild' your FOTAQ data file to include the table for that
specific version, and thus removing the run-time dependency on the
'queen.tbl' file. This tool also allows you to compress the speech and
sound effects with MP3, OGG or FLAC.
3.10) Gobliiins notes:
----- ----------------
The CD versions of the Gobliiins series contain one big audio track
which you need to rip (see the section on using compressed audio files)
and copy into the game directory if you want to have in-game music
without the CD in the drive all the time. The speech is also in that
track and its volume is therefore changed with the music volume control
as well.
3.11) Inherit the Earth: Quest for the Orb notes:
----- -------------------------------------------
In order to run the Mac OS X Wyrmkeep re-release of the game you will
need to copy over data from the CD to your hard disk. If you're on a PC
then consult:
Although it primarily talks about SCUMM games, it mentions the
"HFVExplorer" utility which you need to extract the files. Note that you
have to put the speech data "Inherit the Earth Voices" in the same
directory as the game data which is stored in:
  Inherit the
For the old Mac OS 9 release you need to copy the files in MacBinary
format, as they should include both resource and data forks. Copy all
'ITE *' files.
3.12) Simon the Sorcerer 1 and 2 notes:
----- ---------------------------------
If you have the dual version of Simon the Sorcerer 1 or 2 on CD, you
will find the Windows version in the main directory of the CD and the
DOS version in the DOS directory of the CD.
3.13) The Feeble Files notes:
----- -----------------------
If you have the Windows version of The Feeble Files, there are several
things to note.
Many of the files necessary for the game are stored in an InstallShield
file called, which ScummVM is unable to unpack. You will need
to use the original installer or i5comp to unpack the contents of this
file. The i5comp decompression tool, can be found via a search on the
To use the speech files with ScummVM, they need to be renamed as follows:
Rename voices.wav on CD1 to voices1.wav
Rename voices.wav on CD2 to voices2.wav
Rename voices.wav on CD3 to voices3.wav
Rename voices.wav on CD4 to voices4.wav
3.14) The Legend of Kyrandia notes:
----- -----------------------------
To run The Legend of Kyrandia under ScummVM you need the 'kyra.dat'
file. The file should always be included in official ScummVM packages.
In case ScummVM complains that the file is missing you can find it on the
'Downloads' page of the ScummVM website. Note that the current Windows
release of ScummVM should contain the file embedded into the executable,
thus you only need to grab it in case ScummVM complains about the file
being missing.
3.15) Sierra AGI games Predictive Input Dialog notes:
----- -----------------------------------------------
The Predictive Input Dialog is a ScummVM aid for running AGI engine
games (which notoriously require command line input) on devices with
limited keyboard support. In these situations, since typing with emulated
keyboards is quite tedious, commands can be entered quickly and easily
via the Predictive Input Dialog.
In order to enable predictive input in AGI games, you need to copy the
pred.dic file in the ScummVM extras directory or the directory of the
game you wish to play. This dictionary has been created by parsing
through all known AGI games and contains the maximum set of common
If the dictionary is detected, the Predictive Input Dialog is displayed
either when you click on the command line area (wherever keyboard input
is required, even in dialog boxes), or in some ports by pressing a
designated hot key.
The predictive input dialog operates in three modes, switchable by the
(*)Pre/123/Abc button. The primary input method is the predictive mode
(Pre) which resembles the way "fast typing" is performed at phones. The
alphabet is divided into 9 sets which naturally map to the 9 number keys
of the numeric keypad (0 is space). To type in a word, you press once
the number of the set which contains the letter of the word you intend
to type, then move on to the next. For example, to type the command
'look', you should press 5665. As you gradually type the intended word's
numeric code, the dictionary is accessed for known words matching your
input up to that point. As you press more keys, the prediction converges
to the correct word. This is why the printed word may change
dramatically between key presses.  There exist situations though where
more than one words share the same numeric representation. For example
the words 'quit' and 'suit' map to the same number, namely 7848. In
these cases the (#)next button lights up. By pressing it, you can cycle
through the list of words sharing the same code and finally accept the
correct one by pressing (0)space or the Ok button.
The second input method (123) is the numeric input: Each key you press
is entered verbatim as a number.
The third input method (Abc) is the Multi-tap Alpha input mode. This
mode is intended for entering free text, without assistance from the
dictionary scheme of predictive (Pre) mode. The text is entered one
letter at the time.  For each letter first press the number of the set
which contains the letter you want, then use the (#)next button to cycle
through the letters and repeat with another number. For example, to
enter the word 'look' you must press the following: 5##6##6##5#
The dialog is fully usable with the mouse, but a few provisions have
been made in some ScummVM ports to make its use more comfortable by
naturally mapping the functionality to the numeric keypad. Also, the
dialog's buttons can be navigated with the arrow and the enter keys.
3.16) Mickey's Space Adventure notes:
----- -------------------------------
To run Mickey's Space Adventure under ScummVM, the original executable
of the game (mickey.exe) is needed together with the game's data files.
There is extensive mouse support for the game under ScummVM, even though
there wasn't any mouse support in the original game. Menu items can be
selected using the mouse, and it is possible to move to other locations
using the mouse as well. When the mouse cursor is hovered on the edges
of the screen, it changes color to red if it is possible to walk towards
that direction. The player can then simply click on the edges of the
game's screen to change location, similar to many adventure games, which
is simpler and more straightforward than moving around using the menu.
3.17) Winnie the Pooh notes:
----- ----------------------
It is possible to import saved games from the original interpreter of the
game into ScummVM.
There is extensive mouse support for the game under ScummVM, even though
there wasn't any mouse support in the original game. Menu items can be
selected using the mouse, and it is possible to move to other locations
using the mouse as well. When the mouse cursor is hovered on the edges

game's screen to change location, similar to many adventure games, which
is simpler and more straightforward than moving around using the menu.
3.18) Troll's Tale notes:
----- -------------------
The original game came in a PC booter disk, therefore it is necessary to
dump the contents of that disk in an image file and name it "troll.img"
to be able to play the game under ScummVM.
3.19) Dragon History notes:
----- ---------------------
There are 4 language variants of the game: Czech, English, Polish and
German.  Each of them is distributed in a separate archive.  The only
official version is the Czech one, and the English, Polish and German
ports have always been work in progress and never officially released.
Although all texts are fully translated, it is known that some of them
contain typos.
There exists an optional Czech dubbing for the game.  For bandwidth
reasons, you can download it separately and then unpack it to the
directory of the game.  You can listen to the Czech dubbing with all
language variants of the game, while reading the subtitles.
All game files and the walkthrough can be downloaded from
3.20) Simultaneous speech and subtitles in Sierra SCI games:
----- ------------------------------------------------------
Certain CD versions of Sierra SCI games had both speech and text
resources. Some have an option to toggle between the two, but there are
some cases where there wasn't any option to enable both simultaneously.
In ScummVM, it is possible to enjoy a combined mode, where both speech
and text are shown at the same time. This mode can be toggled in the
ScummVM audio options, but each game has different behavior in-game
regarding speech and text toggling.
The CD games where speech and subtitles can be shown simultaneously
  EcoQuest 1 CD
  Freddy Pharkas CD
  King's Quest 6 CD
  Laura Bow 2 CD
  Leisure Suit Larry 6 CD
  Space Quest 4 CD
EcoQuest 1 CD:
    Speech and text can be toggled via the game's "Mode" option in the
    options dialog, or via ScummVM's audio options.
Freddy Pharkas CD:

    Either speech only or speech and text can be selected. There is no
    in-game option to toggle text only. Only ScummVM's audio options can
    be used to enable the text only mode.
Space Quest 4 CD:
    Speech and text can be toggled via the "Display Mode" button in the
    options dialog, or via ScummVM's audio options.
3.21) Known Problems:
----- ---------------
This release has the following known problems. There is no need to
report them, although patches to fix them are welcome. If you discover a
bug that is not listed here, nor in the compatibility list on the web
site, please see the section on reporting bugs.
  CD Audio Games:
    - When playing games that use CD Audio (FM-TOWNS games, Loom CD, etc)
      users of Microsoft Windows 2000/XP may experience random crashes.
      This is due to a long-standing Windows bug, resulting in corrupt
      game files being read from the CD. Please copy the game data to
      your hard disk to avoid this.
  FM-TOWNS versions:
    - The Kanji versions require the FM-TOWNS Font ROM
    - Turning off the subtitles via the config file does not work reliably
      as the Loom scripts automatically turn them on again
    - MIDI support in the EGA version requires the Roland update from
    - The PC-Engine Kanji version requires the system card rom
  The Secret of Monkey Island:
    - MIDI support in the EGA version requires the Roland update from
  Beneath a Steel Sky:
    - Amiga versions aren't supported
