Interpretor for running Beneath A Steel Sky, Broken Sword 1 and Broken Sword 2; Flight of the Amazon Queen; and games based on LucasArts' SCUMM engine, that monkey island etc.. heres whats new:

  • As well as supporting all the latest updates to the main ScummVM core, I've
    also added in a couple of things to enhance the ScummVM experience on the xbox.
  • Most noticeable is support for a virtual keyboard - hit the left trigger to
    show/hide that. It's very similar to the one used in the Dreamcast port, just
    tidied up a bit.
  • The other main change is the addition of some code that should improve the
    performance of some of the larger games when run from a dvd (Curse of Monkey
    Island for example). They won't be perfect, but they should be much better
    than with any previous xbox version of ScummVM.
  • Also this release does support Roland MT32 midi emulation. If you have the
    correct rom files (do NOT ask me where to get them) just drop them in the
    folder with the xbe, then you can select MT32 emulation in the options screen.
    But be warned - it sounds ace, but the xbox is not powerful enough to emulate
    the MT32 and run the game engine. It's included more as a curio than anything.

As always no dl link so hit the usual sources folks

You probably should've pointed out that this is is news specifically for the XBox port, as the only thing to imply the fact that it's the XBox port is the lack of a download link and the last item in the what's new list...
