It's been quite some time since the ScummVM Team's last release, but recently sev has updated their PS3 / PSP Emulator to ScummVM 1.8.0 dubbed 'Lost with Sherlock' with details below.

Download: ScummVM 1.8.0 PS3 Emulator / ScummVM 1.8.0 PSP Emulator / SVN / GIT

To quote from developer sev: ScummVM 1.8.0 "Lost with Sherlock" is finally there!

No, we do not want to make it a new rule to release ScummVM slower and slower! It has been many months since the last official release... but in that time, tons of work has been done, resulting in one of our biggest ScummVM releases to date!

ScummVM 1.8 adds support for ten new games using eight brand new game engines:
  • Amazon: Guardians of Eden
  • Beavis and Butthead in Virtual Stupidity
  • Broken Sword 2.5: The Return of the Templars
  • Labyrinth of Time
  • Rex Nebular and the Cosmic Gender Bender
  • Sfinx
  • The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Rose Tattoo
  • The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Serrated Scalpel
  • Zork: Grand Inquisitor
  • Zork Nemesis: The Forbidden Lands
In addition to new game support, we've updated the MT-32 emulator to the latest upstream version of munt, and switched AdLib to Miles Audio for those games which originally supported it. This means games in ScummVM sound better than ever!

We've also overhauled the graphics subsystem in AGI, basically replacing it. As a result game compatibility with old Sierra titles is high as never before, and even includes platform-specific system dialogs, palette and font for Apple IIgs, Atari ST and Amiga versions of the games. Game speed for Apple IIgs is handled properly now. And it's even possible to switch to the looks of another platform.

New ports include GCW-Zero (yes, sev finally got one from the Kickstarter) and Raspberry Pi.

Also, along the way we have moved to a new server and added translation capabilities to our main website. If you'd like to help with translation, here is the link with the guide.

This list is far from complete. The more comprehensive version of it can be found in the release notes and the binaries for your platforms are available from our downloads page. The porters are still building their packages, so please be patient if you do not see the up to date download for your platform yet.

Don't get lost in the Labyrinth, and in the worst case call Mr. Holmes! (And we promise to release more often!)

Download: scummvm-16-10-11.vpk

To quote: Hi,

Here is a port of the excellent scummvm engine to the ps vita. The port is now in an usable state, and is working very fine on the vita. There's still a few things to improve (add touch support, flac support ?).

For a list of compatible games see :

I really want to thanks Xavier from consoleX for sending me a free ps vita for development !

See you soon,


  • improved speed: more than 100% faster on some games (for example broken sword 1 intro now play full speed)
  • enabled scalers and hq scalers (no need to enable 2x scalers on "HD" games like broken swords, will just slow down)
  • ability to use "integer scaling" (disable fullscreen)
  • corrected aspect ratio of some games
  • updates sources to latest git revision (2016-10-11)
  • fixed libmad (mp3 playback, should fix some games)
  • added flac support (libFLAC, should fix some games)
  • prevent sleep mode
  • disable asm (FIX ALL GAMES, thanks Lousyphreak)
  • fix select button misconfiguration (on screen keyboard working)
  • include data in vpk package (no need to copy any folder manually, just install vpk, thanks xyz)
  • set cpu bus full speed (improve speed)
  • optimize flags (improve speed)
