Monkey Island on my DS :)

Makes me a very happy flame

To be precise, its Monkey Island 2 running on ScummVM, which is in turn running on my DS. (ver the use of a GBAMP and a PassMe)

It works perfectly so far, includeing sound files and saves.
The top screen is just a zoomed in view of the current "active" part of the lower screen.
The lower screen is just a shrunk down view you get on your pc, with the touchscreen acting like a mouse.

Sorry for the picture quality, need more practice with my flatmates digital camera me thinks

To make this work I needed:

GBAMP ~ £13 (device for playing movies, nes games, pictures and ebooks on the DS or GBA)

512MB Compact Flash card ~ £30

USB Compact Flash reader/writer ~ £3

"PassMe" device ~ £10 (device for hacking the DS, you can make the change perminate so you never need to use this device again, or you can use it each time you want to play homebrew. Just plug it in the top and thats is).


Theroticaly, almost all Scumm games should work (includeing the talkies).
Going to try Day of the Tentical next

Wow! You could make any dos-game for DS! Skip the dosbox! Buy DS, I say! (although I don't have it)

not any dos game.

Any Scumm game (just about any point and click), and some other Dos games.

(DosBox DS may be developed, in theory its possible, but it hasnt been yet).

LinuxDS is also well in developement though,and that will also allow loads of old games to work.

I never played Zack
Certainly on my list of ones to try

Actualy...I might have played Zack once but got stuck when i needed a security code

Oh, the great thing is you can keep as many Scumm games as you want on the system, and you get a menu to pick which one to play at the start.

It also boots fine from Moonshell. (a homebrew OS type thing for the DS)

I just have

And it works.
Sadly, no sound at all though...hopefully in the next version of ScummDS


Also tested:

Day Of the Tentical ~ Works perfectly. Looks amazing. Full sound and voiceover

SAM AND MAX HIT THE ROAD ~ Works, with sound and voiceover (allthough slightly out of sycn in places)

Inidana Joans (1/2) ~ Both work fine, with sound but they didnt have speach to start with.

Monkey Island 1 ~ Works, of course.

Loom ~ Works but cant get any sounds.

Still to test:

Broken Sword 1/2 (yes, it supports them techicaly O_o)

Scumm = Script Creation Ulitilty for Manic Mansion.....so if one game will work then that one will

I havnt tried it, but the full version MM is in DotT, so it should work.

Choasfish ~ Goblins? I'll add that too my "too try" list.
Cyberg ~ Sure, maybe tommorow
