ScummVM v1.0.0 (RC1) (GC misc)

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 games, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed!

Some of the adventures ScummVM supports include Adventure Soft’s Simon the Sorcerer 1 and 2; Revolution’s Beneath A Steel Sky, Broken Sword 1 and Broken Sword 2; Flight of the Amazon Queen; Wyrmkeep’s Inherit the Earth; Coktel Vision’s Gobliiins; Westwood Studios’ The Legend of Kyrandia and games based on LucasArts’ SCUMM (Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion) system such as Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max and more. You can find a thorough list with details on which games are supported and how well on the compatibility page. ScummVM is continually improving, so check back often.

As this is a test release, here is a link you might need: http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Release_Testing/1.0.0

The list of changes which are prepared for you in this release is quite long. The most outstanding ones are:

Added support for Discworld
Added support for Discworld 2 – Missing Presumed …!?
Added support for Return to Zork
Added support for Leather Goddesses of Phobos 2
Added support for The Manhole
Added support for Rodney’s Funscreen
Added support for Cruise for a Corpse
Improved GUI vastly: added quick search, introduced per-game options, improved mass-add dialog

Increased The 7th Guest microscope puzzle difficulty to match original
Major improvements to PSP, PS2 and WinCE ports
