  • If you have a Gamecube memory card plugged into Slot B, eject it prior to starting ScummVM
  • The quality/speed of the SD card matters. FAT16 performs better than FAT32 on my cheap SD card.
  • The SD card code seems to be buggy. Larger games such as COMI or Broken Sword will only work to some extent.
  • The application crashes sometimes when exiting; press Z on your Gamcube pad to jump to the loader again

Unnoficial Version with WiiMote support

News From Savy Gamer

|The ScummVM interpretor is a piece of software that allow you to play a bunch of classic Adventure games on a range of platforms. It has now been ported to the Wii, with Wiimote support, meaning you can use the Wiimote pointer to replace the functionality of the mouse.

You can download it here.

The Scumm engine was originally made for Lucasarts Maniac Mansion, but it was used for a whole host of fantastic games. My personal favourites are Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max Hit the Road and Beneath a Steel Sky.

There is some fantastic homebrew coming out for the Wii, and it's only just getting started, I can't wait to see what's down the line. You will need some way of launching .dol files to use this, Wiibrew should have all the advice you need for that.

I strongly suggest you head over to and download the charming and hilarious Beneath a Steel Sky.|


i know and agree that wiimote support in homebrew apps is exciting, but that build was still not meant to go public. i think the wiiuse port i used in that version is "more stable" compared to others floating around, but it is still unstable. get prepared for random crashes
