    Ok I installed ScummVM today and I have Pepper's Adventures in Time but in EXE form. How do I convert it to be playable on ScummVM or do I need some special data files?

    Thanks.

    I don't know where to SSH it, but I can tell you this:

    ScummVM games don't run the .exe file. SummVM matches the contents of the game folder to it's list of games, determines what game it is, and attempts to play it using the resource files of that game. Make sure your game is compatible with the list on ScummVM's website, and they will give you a list of files. Put those files in the directory that they tell you to (I'm currently trying to figure that out) and when you run ScummVM select "add game" and select the directory you moved the files into.

    EDIT: ScummVM directory is in "/private/var/mobile/library"
    Make another directory in there with the name of your game, and put the files in there.
    EDIT 2: It doesn't matter where you put them, just point it to that DIR
