RTZ on the DS, that must be a real treat. 

As for running it on Symbian devices, I have n't noticed anything special performance wise, except that the first attemps was crashing abit. 

With your fixes it will be even better.

> Hi,
> I had a go last night at getting Return to Zork running on the DS port of ScummVM, and after fixing a few fatal bugs in the engine (memory leaks and excessive stack usage, I'll submit fixes when I get back to my PC) the game runs fine. Unfortunately it runs at less than one frame per second, even when very little appears to be going on. For example, when the birds are circling when sitting on the first playable screen, everything moves really slowly. The video playback runs at normal speed (and looks great!)
> There doesn't seem to be an excessive amount of calls to the backend or graphics rendering going on, so it seems to me that the time is spent executing script functions. Can someone who knows this engine take a look at it and give me some clues as to where to start? Even if someone could just send me a profile of this game sitting idle at a gameplay screen it would help.
