You have played some simple games on your unlocked Mio C230. Mio C230 is actually powerful enough for more sophisticated games. I have tried ScummVM and it rocks! So what is ScummVM? Here is the quote for ScummVM’s web site.
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 modifications are needed for Mio C230. You’ll need to unlock your Mio C230 in order to run ScummVM. If you haven’t done so, please see one of my unlock releases to unlock your unit first.
- Insert a SD card into Mio C230. Turn it on and connect it to the computer using a USB cable.
- Assuming the storage card (SD card) shows up as G drive. Make a folder called scummvm under it (G:scummvm).
- Download ScummVM 0.9.1 from this site. Note that the latest version 0.11.0 doesn’t work.
- Unzip the zip file from step 3 and copy all the files to the folder G:scummvm .
- Download scummvm.zip file from here. Unzip it and find the two files: scummvm.ini and scummvm64.ico .
- Copy scummvm.ini to G:scummvm . Copy aygshell.dll from your script directory to G:scummvm.
The previous setup is for the program itself. It has no games. There are two freeware games from this site. Unfortunately, Beneath a Steel Sky doesn’t work for C230, because it requires at least a hardware key which C230 doesn’t have. The other freeware game Flight of the Amazon Queen works quite well. Download the zip file, unzip all the files and copy them to a folder on the storage card.
Now you are ready to try the game. Disconnect the USB cable and hard reset your C230 if needed. Use FileManCE to invoke the file PocketSCUMM.exe in the Storage Cardscummvm directory. The first time you run ScummVM, you need to tell it where to find the games. Click on Add Game to add the game you downloaded.
I have included an icon file, if you like you can include this on your desktop. I don’t know where you can find games that works with ScummVM, please don’t ask for them here.
