Cos'è ScummVM?

ScummVM è un programma che permette di eseguire alcuni fra i classici giochi di avventura "punta e clicca", a patto di averne a disposizione i dischi originali. Il bello è che ScummVM sostituisce gli eseguibili originali, permettendo di eseguire i giochi su piattaforme per cui non erano neppure mai stati pensati!

ScummVM supporta molti giochi di avventura, compresi i giochi SCUMM di LucasArts (come Monkey Island 1-3, Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max, ...), molti fra i giochi Sierra basati su AGI e SCI (ad esempio King's Quest 1-7, Space Quest 1-6, ...), Discworld 1 e 2, Simon the Sorcerer 1 e 2, Beneath A Steel Sky, Lure of the Temptress, Broken Sword 1 e 2, Flight of the Amazon Queen, Gobliiins 1-3, The Legend of Kyrandia 1-3, diversi giochi per bambini basati su SCUMM di Humongous Entertainment (tra cui i giochi delle serie Freddi Fish e Putt Putt) e molti altri.

Troverai un elenco dettagliato dei giochi supportati (e di quanto siano supportati) sulla pagina di compatibilità. ScummVM è in continuo sviluppo, quindi ricontrollare spesso non nuoce. Tra i sistemi su cui è possibile lanciare i giochi: Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Dreamcast, PocketPC, PalmOS, AmigaOS, BeOS, OS/2, PSP, PS2, SymbianOS e molti altri...

Il nostro forum e il nostro canale IRC, #scummvm su irc.freenode.net, sono aperti a commenti e suggerimenti. Per favore, leggi la nostra FAQ prima di scrivere.

Puoi sostenere il progetto ed esprimere la tua approvazione con una donazione PayPal, anche se i contributi in forma di codice sono molto più apprezzati del vil danaro.

7 aprile 2019: ScummVM: Modern Theme Remastered
Scritto da lotharsm

ScummVM Modern Theme RemasteredTime flies so fast! It's been 10 years since we introduced the "Modern Theme" to ScummVM.

After all those years, it surely was time for an update.

Over the last couple of weeks, ScummVM team member mataniko carefully updated the theming of ScummVM. The new theme follows modern design principles while preserving our own design philosophy.

From now on, future versions of ScummVM (including current nightly builds!) will include the new theme by default.

Already missing the old theme? Don't worry! The old "ScummVM Modern" theme can be selected in ScummVM's options at any time.

What do you think about the new theme? Let us know in our forums! As always, your feedback is greatly appreciated.

A couple of days ago, Google announced the organizations that have been accepted for Google Summer of Code 2019. We are very pleased to announce that ScummVM is one of them, together with our sister project ResidualVM. The Summer of Code is a yearly event organized by Google to encourage students to contribute to open source projects. Open source organizations provide mentors and projects to work on, while Google give some money to participating students. You can find more information on the official web site. We also have some information on our wiki, and in particular project rules that applicants will need to follow.

Are you ready for a great adventure? Do you want to contribute to one of the largest game preservation projects known to mankind? Then ScummVM and ResidualVM are waiting for you! Have a look at our ideas page. Of course, you are also very welcome to bring your own idea! Students have until April 9 to write and submit proposals for the project they want to work on. The accepted proposals will be announced on May 6, and there will be a few weeks for community bonding before the start of the coding period on May 27.

In any case, don't hesitate to chat with us on IRC! #scummvm and #residualvm in the Freenode network are the place to go!

10 dicembre 2018: Infrastructure updates... again!
Scritto da lotharsm

Over the last couple of days, we moved our downloads to a new mirroring infrastructure. Previously, each and every download was delivered by our main server located in Austria.

Now, our downloads are delivered through MirrorBrain, a download redirection system that allows us to build our own content distribution network. MirrorBrain is already used by many open source projects.

MirrorBrain tries to always select the best mirror based on your location, so you will get the best download speeds possible.

While we already have a few mirrors located in Europe, we are currently looking for people willing to donate some bandwidth and storage located in the US and in other parts of the world. If you want to mirror the ScummVM repository, please contact us via E-Mail at serra@scummvm.org.

If you run into any issues with our new download system, feel free to leave a comment in our forums.

18 novembre 2018: More infrastructure updates
Scritto da lotharsm

A few weeks ago, we started improving our website, including (but not limited to) dusting off our forums and our wiki. There's also some stuff going on 'behind the scenes' like improving the way we handle translations for this website.

Over the next couple of days, we are going to roll out a new mirroring system for the downloads we provide in order to allow us to distribute the necessary bandwidth across several servers.

We are almost done with setting up the new system and basically just have to 'flip the switch'. However, it is possible that you might run into issues like broken download links or messages complaining about missing files during the transition period.

We are working hard to keep service interruptions as minimal as possible. Many thanks for your understanding!
