Manual controls can be configured by adding a pad2key profile for the game.

System Features

Adding games

Scummvm games must be in separate folders, in the \roms\scummvm folder.

In each games folder, create a .txt file with the name of the game, for example Full Throttle.txt for Full Throttle.

In the .txt file, enter the ScummVM game shortname, refer to to get the correct shortname.

The shortname contains the engine followed by the game short ID, separated by :

Finally, rename the *.txt files into *.scummvm file, for example: Full Throttle.txt ==> Full Throttle.scummvm

Running a specific version of a game with dedicated per-game options

Some games have been issued on multiple platforms, SCUMMVM is able to run most of these versions.

If you own multiple versions of the same game and want to be able to select the version to run, you will first need to add the games to SCUMMVM directly within the emulator.

To do so, proceed as follows.

  • Open SCUMMVM and select "add games":

Locate your game folder.

  • Pick the version of the game to be added (if multiple versions exist in your game file):

  • Define the game short ID and the options to enable when running this game

Click OK once finished

The game is now added to SCUMMVM:

  • Create a dedicated .scummvm file to run this specific version of the game:

The name inside the .scummvm file must match the short ID specified when adding the game in the emulator.

  • In RetroBat, both versions will now be available

Note that you can check all installed games and their short-ID in the scummvm.ini file, this file is located in:

  • \emulators\scummvm folder (for SCUMMVM standalone)

  • \bios folder for libretro:scummvm
