SYMBIAN UIQ3: Nippon Safes is slower than a glacier
Using the latest stable 0.10.0 release of the Symbian UIQ3 version of ScummVM on a SonyEricsson W950i.
Tested on the multilang floppy version of Nippon Safes Inc.
When chosen in the ScummVM menu, the game goes to a black screen for approx. 40 seconds, after which the Dynabyte logo is shown. This then changes colours into a rather psychodelic palette, and for another thirty seconds doesn't move, after which the game title appears. Again, after about five seconds the colours shift and thirty more seconds will pass before the language selector appears. Here the cursor moves properly-ish, but to get the game to register a choice the stylus will have to press down on a dictionary for those dreaded five seconds or more (when the colours will shift again and the next screen will start loading). Killing the process via Task Manager is equally tiresome as the phone will behave like a Windows system whose processor has been overloaded with an excrutiatingly demanding program.
My patience ran out at the start of the game intro. I would assume this is a hardware limitation of the mobile, but any suggestions would be most welcome.
