This CD image contains ScummVM along with 19 demos (13 of them are fully interactive) from some of the supported games, the ScummVM Dreamcast binary version was compiled by Erwan from the ScummVM CVS (dated - 27th January 2006).
ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. ScummVM lets you run these adventures: Adventure Soft's Simon the Sorcerer 1 and 2; Revolution's Beneath A Steel Sky, Broken Sword 1 and Broken Sword 2; Flight of the Amazon Queen; Wyrmkeep's Inherit the Earth; Coktel Vision's Gobliiins and games based on LucasArts' SCUMM (Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion) system. SCUMM is used for many games, including Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max and more.
This CD has disc swap support:
If you have the full version of a supported game on CD, boot this ScummVM CD in your Dreamcast, open the lid of your Dreamcast whilst at the game menu, swap discs with your chosen game, close the lid of your Dreamcast and wait for the game to load.
ScummVM has a 'Virtual Keyboard':
When a game has booted, press the Left Trigger on the Dreamcast controller and the 'Virtual Keyboard' will launch, you can use it to skip cut scenes in games, name your save files etc.
This version of ScummVM has the 'Autosave' function enabled:
Every five minutes or so the 'Autosave' function will launch (with certain games), it will automatically save your position in the game you are playing directly to your VMU. If you do not want your VMU to fill up with saves from the different demos, remove your VMU from your Dreamcast controller before playing the demos included on this CD.

You will need to reboot your Dreamcast once you have played one demo and want to play another. With most of the demos you can 'soft reboot' your Dreamcast - once you have finished with a demo, press START on your controller and a menu will appear, choose 'QUIT' and the demo will end, you'll find yourself back at the Dreamcast menu, you can 'soft reboot' from here. With a few demos you will need to reboot your Dreamcast by turning it OFF and back ON again.
