Um, what? Are you referring to the desktop version of ScummVM? Why would you want to use a different mouse pointer?

(Also, technically, ScummVM is NOT an emulator. It's a rewritten version of each game that it supports).

Scummvm pointer 

Yeah I understand is not really an emulator, and no I'm referring to the android version, when you plug in a mouse to the android device you get a pointer as you would in a computer, as you know scummvm has an orange pointer that you drag with your finger so my question is can I bypass or eliminate the orange pointer for the mouse pointer

Hi, thanks for the suggestion. Looking on that link it says I need the SCUMM engine. It doesn't say where you get it from though or how you install it. I've spent days searching round trying to find out and keep drawing a blank.

The 'how to add a new engine' link at the bottom of the page is developer aimed, when they've written a new one not previously supported by the programme, so that doesn't help?

(nb the page linked above also says at the top " Complete Engines in the Latest Stable Version" so does that not mean they come pre-installed?)

Any further help anyone please?

Thanks

I would have preferred if someone else replied to this (maybe someone who, unlike me, actually has an Android device, and has actually seen ScummVM run on it), but when I looked at the Google play page for ScummVM, plugins were listed under "More from developer".

So at least there they don't seem to be included in the main package.

Yes, that's right. The plugin needs to be downloaded from Google play (along with ScummVM itself) if you want to play a Scumm engine game like Monkey Island on your device:
