What do I need to run ResidualVM?
First of all you need to own one of the games ResidualVM runs. You also need a build of ResidualVM for the operating system you are using, which can be found in our Downloads page. If there isn't a precompiled build for your platform you will need to build one yourself.
To run a game copy the data files of the game to your hard drive, then open ResidualVM
select 'Add Game' and find the directory with the data files
click on 'Choose' and then on 'OK'
'Start' and enjoy!
ResidualVM requires a couple system components to be installed in order to run correctly, if you are using a precompiled binary you need to have installed the following packages:
