Configuring and playing games
PlayStation 3 Specifics
- From a computer, download the installable package of the PS3 port from ScummVM’s main site. It should be a .pkg file. Copy it to an USB drive.
- After having plugged the USB drive to you PS3, the installation package should appear in the XMB under the “Games > Install Package” menu. Installing it copies ScummVM and its dependencies to your PS3′s hard drive. It also adds the “Games > PlayStation 3 > ScummVM” XMB entry which is to be used to launch ScummVM.
- Games can be launched either from an USB drive or from the internal hard drive. The internal hard drive has better performance though.
- Savegames are wrote in the /hdd0/game/SCUM12000/saves folder.
