ScummVM Dreamcast History

In January 2002 Mark Thomas was porting ScummVM to the Dreamcast using the independent software development library KallistiOS (KOS), an early preview version of ScummVMDC was released which combined a binary file along with the Day of the Tentacle demo. The only other release of ScummVMDC was version 0.1.1 which featured a simple menu based on GhettoPlay by Dan Potter that enabled users to add compatible games for a compilation CD. Mark Thomas left the Dreamcast independent community shortly after the ScummVMDC 0.1.1 release.

At the same time Mark Thomas was porting ScummVM with KOS, Marcus Comstedt was porting ScummVM to the Dreamcast using Libronin, which was another independent development library that Marcus Comstedt had developed alongside Peter Bortas and Per Hedbor. Marcus Comstedt would soon become the official team member supporting the port of ScummVM to the Dreamcast console, the first release for the Dreamcast was ScummVM version 0.2.0 in April 2002. To this day Marcus Comstedt continues with updates to the sourcecode and releases the Dreamcast plainfiles and CD Images available at the ScummVM site.

The first releases of ScummVM had limited compatibility for only a handful of LucasArts games and mainly 256 color versions of these games were supported, development of the interpreter advanced rapidly with support being added for most versions of the games. By the time the first Dreamcast port had been released, support for the first non-Lucasarts games had also been added with Adventuresoft's Simon The Sorcerer.
