ScummVM

ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this: ScummVM just replaces the executables shipped with the game, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed!

Note: Scummvm runs in landscape mode and due to the bug http://docs.openmoko.org/trac/ticket/1244 it is not yet usable.

JadeFalcon (IRC nick) has provided a fixed bitbake recipe for users of OM2007.1. You can download the recipe and pre-built ipk files for use on your Neo 1973.

Monky Island

The games are copyrighted so you'll only be able to play those you own. You can also download some free games.

When starting ScummVM use the command

# openmoko-scummvm

This will map AUX button to the F5 key, which is used to access the ScummVM menu. You should also find an entry on the main menu under Games.

Note: The AUX button does not work. There is no way to exit the game besides doing a killall scummvm.

Note: It would be great if it where possible to get audi through the headphones and speaker muted.

More information on ScummVM can be found on the official site

Monkey Island 2

To be able to play Monkey Island 2 you need to pass ScummVM a parameter:

root@fic-gta01:/$ openmoko-scummvm --boot-param=10001 monkey2

For easy access from the menu you can create a menu entry by creating the file /usr/share/applications/monkeyisland2.desktop with the following content:
