    Hi guys, a few people have asked for controls etc.

    thought id make a thread for this:

    Installation

    * Open Installer.app on a jailbroken iPhone or iPod touch. Use Google to find out how to jailbreak your specific version of the firmware on your device.
    * Tap the "Sources" button in the bottom-right corner.
    * Tap the "Edit" button in the top-right corner.
    * Tap the "Add" button in the top-left corner.
    * Enter http://urbanfanatics.com/scummvm.xml into the text area and tap "OK".
    * Installer will refresh your sources. It may close. If so, reopen it.
    * ScummVM is now available for install in the Games section.

    Controls
    Left click Single tap

    Right click Hold one finger on screen where you want to click, single tap another

    ESC Hold one finger on screen, double tap another

    F5 (menu) Hold one finger on screen, swipe another down from top to bottom

    F 0-9 keys Press the keyboard button directly under the appropriate number

    Pause Keyboard spacebar

    Toggle Click+Drag mode Hold one finger on screen, swipe another up from bottom to top.
    In this mode, a mouse click is sent immediately when you touch the screen, drags to wherever you slide your finger, and releases where you lift your finger. Useful for Monkey Island 3: The Curse of Monkey Island and Full Throttle.

    Suspend Press the tactile "home" button.

    Quit Press and hold the tactile "home" button for 5-6 seconds.

    Nice guide, will be quite helpful for some people. You could also add how to add games just in case.

    For those that don't know:

    1. navigate to Var/Root/Media.
    2. In this directory create a new directory to place your games (i named mine ScummVM)
    3. Place your games in the directory.
    4. Open ScummVM and press 'Add Game'
    5. Navigate to Var/Root/Media/(yourdirectory) and select the game, then press the 'Add Game' button. Repeat step 5 for any other games you wish to add.
    6. Click 'Start' and you're good to go.

    You can include this in your guide if you want.

    Put the whole folder in (i.e. containing all of those files in one folder within your "Games" folder on the touch.

    No, don't do that. A list of the required files for each game can be found at
    http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Datafiles

    There is no point copying all of them, most of them aren't even required and would just waste space on your iPod.

    Of course if you'd just gone to the official ScummVM website, or spent 5 seconds using google you would know this already

    How do you navigate to the folder. Add Game defaults into the Media_Sym folder and doesn't want to get out of it to go to the Media Folder where I have my Scummvm folder and games.

    There's 100MB+ of completely unnecessary data files on some Scumm games such as Broken Sword.

    Kinda pointless to copy them when it takes ages over WiFi, and the developers maintain a list.

    I hear you can watch movies with this program. But you have to convert to ScummVM format... which is kinda useless, unless this program plays AVI/WMV too.
