MESS .135

MESS .135 is to computers and consoles as MAME is to arcade machines. i.e. It is an attempt to exactly emulate early computer and console systems. It is based primarily on the MAME source code so versions run in parallel to MAME. The reason MESS can use MAME as a basis is that most chips in computers and consoles are direct copies of arcade chips just connected a different way. In the guide you need to be aware of some terminology. If I use the word system it means the computer or console system being emulated. If I use the word BIOS it is meant to be for system roms or BIOS images used to get MESS working. Finally if I use the word software it means the rom/tape/disk etc… image to be loaded onto the system running in MESS. Download at our MESS page.

ScummVM 0.12.0

ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this: ScummVM just replaces the executables shipped with the games, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed. Some of the adventures ScummVM supports include Adventure Soft‘s Simon the Sorcerer 1 and 2; Revolution‘s Beneath A Steel Sky, Broken Sword 1 and Broken Sword 2; Flight of the Amazon Queen; Wyrmkeep‘s Inherit the Earth; Coktel Vision’s Gobliiins; Westwood Studios’ The Legend of Kyrandia and games based on LucasArtsSCUMM (Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion) system such as Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max and more. ScummVM 0.12.0 is ported to various systems, including Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Dreamcast, PocketPC, PalmOS, AmigaOS, BeOS, OS/2, PSP, PS2, SymbianOS and others. This new version of ScummVM adds support for 5 completely new games. The games that now run smoothly on many more platforms than was initially intended are: The Legend of Kyrandia: Book Two: Hand of Fate, The Legend of Kyrandia: Book Three: Malcolm’s Revenge, Lost in Time, The Bizarre Adventures of Woodruff and the Schnibble and Drascula: The Vampire Strikes Back. The number of supported platforms grew as well. The PS2 port has been revived, and the GameCube and Wii are now supported too. Take your Wiimote and make your beloved adventure game protagonist run around the screen.

SDLMESS V0.124

SDLMESS with Additional code by Sven Gothel, couriersud, and Vas Crabb. For Linux/Unix, Mac OS X (both PPC and Intel), FreeBSD, Win32, and OS/2 systems.
Portable to anything remotely POSIX-y with SDL 1.2.11 or higher available. Note: the Win32 target is not intended to compete with baseline MESS – it’s simply a demonstration that SDLMESS works well with that OS. Download at our MESS page.
