Hi there! I have a thought about this topit: since an Amiga 600 fitted with a Vampire 2 could run most games @64 colors very smoothly, wouldn't make sense to revision this criteria? For example many games don't start because of the resolution but with a Vampire it should not be a problem...

I recently looked into the available sources of ScummVM Amiga ports. The most recent I could find was 1.8.1 RTG. I re-enabled the AGA path in there and for now just hooked it up with WriteChunkyPixels(). Given you install BlazeWCP, this is good enough for now. I also added back the external MIDI support. You can buy an Amiga MIDI cable, hook it up to you PC via an USB midi adapter and use MUNT to emulate an MT-32 on there It’s far from perfect, but the good thing is you can build it yourself and thereby select the game engines it supports. The more engines, the bigger the executable will be. That’s one of the reasons why ScummVM takes a lot of ram. One day we might be able to support dynamic loading of engine plugins, but it’s just not there yet.

You can try re-building ScummVM AGA from here:
https://github.com/mheyer32/scummvm-amigaos3
You should be able to build it with Bebbo’s gcc toolchain on Linux. Slight modification to the configure file is needed to change the output path.

Thanks pipper. Are you suggesting that an ECS machine could run an AGA build if BlazeWCP is installed?

No, that’s not all that’s needed. For instance for proper ECS suppport, we’d need to open a 64Color EHB screen, do explicit 256->64 color palette reduction and use a chunky to planar routine that will do a translation on the fly. There’s code for this in Doom clones like ADoom or DoomAttack which would need to be incorporated into ScummVM. I believe NovaCoder had already done all this in his ECS ScummVM port, but I’m not sure all the source is there.

Yes, an EHB version by NovaCoder already exists but it assumes no one with ECS could have more than a '030 and won't run games with height > 200px. But an A600 with Vampire could run them (it runs DOOM in EHB!) so I was suggesting to re-enable support for those H>200px games.

What about the "Simon the Sorceror" games? Do those support midi music through the ScummVM? No one appears to remember these they were my favorite of the Scumm type games.

Simon works fine (with MIDI playback through CAMD) when compiled into the set of supported engines.

yep seems to work okay

My old ports on AmiNet are probably best for real Amiga's, if you are using a Vampire or UAE then try out one of the newer ports

Amazing, Novacoder. Question: Is there a version that you could recommend for A1200 with 030/33mhz or better forget?

If you have at least 16mb fast RAM you can try https://github.com/mheyer32/scummvm-amigaos3

I've compiled it with only a few of the possible engines to keep it small in size.

The good thing with this release is you can run the Macintosh versions of
scumm games with audio on a 030/50mhz.

It's in the Zone enjoy.

If you run this version, don’t forget to install BlazeWCP. It doesn’t come with its own c2p routines and relies on WriteChunkyPixels() to be fast.

Do you need a slimmed down version with just specific engines?

Nope. I use ScummVM in a Vampire v1200 and dont care the length and loading times. (In AGA 030 all was very slow and in 060 AGA well.... yes... loading is slow but all was fine too.....)

Anyway....

Forgive me if I'm rude. But who of the two (pipper & Arti) actually maintains the scummvm for the Amiga 3.x?

I dont know which is better.

Yesterday I tested the arti version and seems all works perfectly. (CAMD tested too) then... This version from pipper will be more fixed?

I am maintaining https://github.com/mheyer32/scummvm-amigaos3,
But this repo does not have binaries available - in order to run this thing on real Amigas with less than 32MB ram, one needs to be selective about what games to support.

I believe @arti compiled it with as many engines as he could possible enable without running into compilation issues and zipped it up.

Last night I tried compiling SCI32 games (later Sierra adventures like SpaceQuest6), but it failed because RTTI is disabled. I believe if you allow RTTI (at the expense of a larger binary, but that doesn't bother you), it will work as is. I worked on a patch to remove the need for RTTI, but haven't published it yet.
