About ScummVM for the GP32

ScummVM for the GP32 was added to the main repository as an official platform for the ScummVM 0.9.1 release. It was later removed before an official build was ever made for the platform, but the sourcecode is available in that release. The port is currently unmaintained.

The port of ScummVM to the GP32 is limited as the GP32 has only 8MB of RAM. In order to make best use of the limited resources on the GP32 ScummVM uses a totally custom backend for the platform (not the more common SDL approach).

Mainly due to memory constraints (8MB with less then 6MB usable) the supported games on the GP32 are somewhat on the low side and compatibility is focused around the SCUMM engine.

Compatibility List

Unofficial binaries

Although no official binary is available, an unofficial binary is available for the 0.5.1 release.

For best results play games with uncompressed audio when they can fit on the SMC card.
