    Here is a guide plus a script i made to get all your scummvm games to show in emulationstation (which is usually a pain).

    Ok first unpack all you games to a location (lets say /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/scummvm)

    Now go to console and start scummvm (type scummvm ENTER)

    OK now Browse to your game directory /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/scummvm
    You will see a bunch of directories with your games, now put the mouse over the “Add game” button and presh shift (keyboard). The button will change to “Mass Add” , just it ok.

    Ok now your games are in scummvm press quit.

    Download the script i provide to your /home/pi

    Run it with : python ES-scummvm.py /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/scummvm

    The script will generate dummy .svm files so they can be read by emulationstation.

    Now in es_system.cfg make shure your scummvm section looks like this (notice the %BASENAME% instead of %ROM% and the .svm for the dummy files):

    DESCNAME=ScummVM
    NAME=scummvm
    PATH=/media/usb0/scummvm
    EXTENSION=.svm
    COMMAND=scummvm -f –joystick=0 %BASENAME%
    PLATFORMID=99

    Thats all

    MAKE SHURE YOU DOWNLOAD ES-scummvm11.rar, the other is brocken

    Thanks a lot for that!
    I have put that guide also into the wiki at the repository, https://github.com/retropie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/ScummVM.

    I am really keen to get this to work but it is not working for me. I believe I have followed the instructions correctly.

    If I use:

    PATH=/media/usb0/scummvm

    Nothing shows up in emulationstation.

    If I use:

    PATH=/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/scummvm

    I see the titles in emulationstation but they don’t load.

    If I go back to default settings I can load the games, but need to go through the menu using a keyboard to do it.

    I figured it out:

    There was a typo in the joystick command. It needs 2 dashes not 1. Also the path looks like it is setup for running off usb, not the internal SD Card. I have changerd the entry in Emulation Station to the following and it is working. Might also want to update the wiki.

    DESCNAME=ScummVM
    NAME=scummvm
    PATH=/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/scummvm
    EXTENSION=.svm
    COMMAND=scummvm -f –joystick=0 %BASENAME%
    PLATFORMID=99

    Thanks for making the script. It is very useful.

    I’m not able to run the script. I get an error that .scummvmrc is missing.

    I’m able to start scummvm form Emulationstation, by adding a start.exe in the scummvm rom folder.

    I noticed that my settings in scummvm are not saved though (like games I added and save pads I changed).

    When I exit scummvm I get the following error:

    WARNING: FSMode::createReadStream: ‘ .scummvmrc’ does not exist!
    Default configuration file missing, creating a new one
    Using joystick: Generic X-Box pad
    Home directory /home/pi not ours.

    How can I fix this? Tried creating a folder .scummvmrc in /home/pi/ but it did not work?
