Absolutely amazing.

My girlfriend and I were huge LucasArts fans and we kept an older Mac running that'd play them. When that machine died and I upgraded to an Intel OSX machine that was incapable of handling the Classic environment, I thought that I'd never be able to play these games again.

This not only lets me play all the old games I played in the past, it let me play the games that had been released for PC only that I'd never gotten a chance to check out, like Money Island III.

ScummVM has brought back SO many memories from the point n' click adventure era.
Broken Sword, Discworld, I can now play all of my favorites on my Mac...
Frequently updated, you can play more and more games with each release.

ScummVM is the most amazing open source project out there. While I don't agree with the ScummVM team's GUI design decisions (they refuse to make the app more Mac-like to keep it fully portable and consistant across all platforms), I'm amazed at hard work they've put into making all the LucasArts, HE, and many other adventure games from the late 80s and early 90s work on any platform.

Sarien was merged a while ago to add all the Sierra AGI games...and recently (in 0.14 subversion builds), FreeSCI's SCI engine was merged to add many of the Sierra SCI games. Booya!

It's not like the interface would greatly benefit from a native OS X interface as it is usually only used for launching games.

Incredible program. I love the old LucasArts games, they're some of my favorites. I've completed several games with this, including The Dig, Day of the Tentacle, and Curse of Monkey Island. All of the games performed flawlessly. Thank you for this program!

scumm vm refuses to recognize the game files as such--it wont let me add games to the list (game files are grayed out when browsing), which renders the app useless. am i missing something? anyone else have this problem?

My game-files were also greyed out, but when asked by the ScummVM interface to find the gamefiles, I just pointed to the folder containing the files and it worked.

Wow! I had only just bought Monkey Island 3, and played it through on my PC before I found I could've played it on my Mac! This is incredible - thank you so much. I feel the incentive to play all the way through all the Lucasarts games all over again :-) It's a bit of a shame the game loading interface isn't all nice and cocoa-ed (seems to be a direct port using SDL?) but otherwise, fantastic work. Again - thank you!

This is an amazing piece of programming, and a great way to play these games.

Trying to set up an old Win95 machine, fiddling with sound and graphics for days can't compare to downloading ScummVM and it's 30 second game config.

Playing these games is better now on OS X than when the games were first released!

great! really great. I tried it on my Indy Atlantis Version from a couple of years ago. works great. press cotnrol-alt 5 for nice graphics smoothing.

I must look if i can find an old magazine cd where are those games were.
