Port information

The GP2X port of ScummVM became an official supported port at the same time as the 0.9.1 release of ScummVM. All further releases will be made inline with the main ScummVM release cycle. 'Test' releases from SVN snapshots will still be made infrequently on the existing port homepage (see Links).

The official ScummVM port for the GP2X has some limitations over its full 'personal computer' siblings. These are mainly found in the input and screen areas. As such full ScummVM compatibility information should only be used as a guide not a definitive statement that a game will work on the GP2X.

The port uses a custom backend (/backends/platform/gp2x in SVN) that uses a mixture of GP2X specific code and portions derived from the generic SDL backend.
