Transferring game files

For games on PC or Mac formatted discs, use the original platform to access the data files, and then transfer these to Amiga. Alternatively, if you have external hardware such as a Catweazel floppy disc controller, you might be able to use this to access the files.

ScummVM for Amiga OS has Cloud and LAN functionality, to help manage the transfer of files. See Connecting a cloud service and Using the local web server.

See Handling game files for more information about game file requirements.

Controls

Controls can be manually configured in the Keymaps tab. See the Keyboard shortcuts page for common default keyboard shortcuts.

If a game crashes and it’s listed as compatible, report it as a bug.
