Revision as of 20:06, 30 May 2010 by Jvprat (talk | contribs) (Add a column for the 16bits feature and document the unofficial WebOS port)

ScummVM has been ported to run on many platforms and operating systems. The following tables offer an overview of the available ports and their main features. All ports have a specific information page, but the quantity of information you find there depends on whether the port developers have extra information to go with their port or not. Information you can find on these pages include compatibility lists of engines that are available for different ports and devices, extra information on installation and usage, and any comments & personal kudos the porters would like to add. Many thanks go out to the effort of the porters!

There is Small Devices Backend in the works which is planned to be common for all devices with limited resources.

Current Officially Supported Platforms

Please review the Platforms/Overview page for information on what engines are supported by what platform. TODO: Move it to the current page?
