Tyrannozaurus' Scummvm For Pdaxii13 5.49
« on: March 22, 2017, 11:18:05 pm »
I noticed TyrannoZaurus is gone. I have located the most update page on the wayback machine and edited my sig to point to that.  All ipks are downloadable but the Broken Sword cutscenes links are dead.

It's a pity that TyrannoZaurus is not online anymore. What about hosting the the ScummVM page on a new hosting service (except for the missing converted videos, unless someone still have a copy of them)? I'd gladly host it here, but ibiblio sadly has a strict not-copyrighted material policy, and ScummVM is known for having had in the past many legal troubles with the original copyright holders of the games it supports. A nice article about this and in general about ScummVM's history can be found on ArsTechnica: https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2012/01/mani...e-gaming-alive/

Also, it would be nice to see the latest ScummVM version running on the Z. Has anybody tried it under Alarmz, and if so, is there a binary package available for it or does it have to be compiled?

SCUMMVM runs fine on a Z. Arch has the package ready https://archlinuxarm.org/packages/arm/scummvm

It does run with SDL backend, X11, or even FBDev (rotation may be an issue).

I used it some time ago and 320x240 games are very playable ( I played the Elvira series), but no MIDI emulation of course. (get the MP3 / OGG soundpacks instead).

High res games may not be that fluent on a Z but some work (640x480)

Well, I think the safest place to "host" the page is the Internet Archive.  I didn't compile the binary or package the ipk.  Antikx and Meanie did that.  I was more the project manager/ lead tester.

I love that version as it handles even 640x480 games including both Broken Swords and The Curse of Monkey Island almost flawlessly (just the occasional cutscene slight stutter).  

Most of the other ports of ScummVM just can't handle that magnitude of awesomeness.

"Hosting" on the Internet archive is not a good idea. I have plenty of bookmarks to stuff on there that is no longer available. I mean, they no longer archive it or they moved it over to longer term storage that is not accessible.

Anyone looking for it now may assume that as there is no active website for it, the whole thing is probably dead and unusable.
