Check it.

Yeah, so ScummVM supports Myst and Riven. This is awesome because not only does it allow you to completely bypass installation, but it also doesn't require any QT nonsense. It also runs on just about every system under the sun, even iOS and Android (Riven on a Droid X is SOO awesome).

All you have to do is insert your discs and put the listed files into a folder. It's okay to have multiple games in one folder even, you can just have a folder named ScummVM and just dump multiple games in there without putting them into individual folders. The program will sort through and find games it can run from the files in the folder.

So yeah. Awesome.

Do you know if SCUMMVM supports those CD-based games that are kinda stuck between eras? You know, the CD-ROM games that came out in the nineties, and now you can't get 'em to work with VM or with Vista/Win7? Because I wanna do an LP of Dinosaur Safari, and this just may be the fix I'm looking for...

Dunno. If the engine is supported in Scumm then it most likely works.

Late to the party, I know, but I'm trying this and getting no end of trouble. You make it sound so simple! So is there a trick I don't know about or am I doing something wrong? General research seems to imply that perhaps I need to use the Masterpiece edition. I've been trying it with the original because I thought simpler is better.

Please start a new topic next time as the last post in this one is from 2011 :)

I haven't tried this yet, but it should be possible using a daily build from scummvm as Myst is not officially supported. You can find it at this part of the downloads page Downloads

Otherwise it should work like any other scummvm game, copy over the files from the CD and point scummvm to the folder :) You'll need these files specifically: Datafiles
