SYMBIAN: Screen orientation on nokia 5800 xpressmusic

Reported by: SF/rc9000 Owned by: anotherguest
Priority: normal Component: Port: Symbian
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


ScummVM GUI is always rotated 90° to much clockwise. I.e. when starting ScummVM holding the cellphone "regularly" the GUI is started in landscape mode using the fullscreen (being rotated 90° clockwise). This would be completely fine, but when turning the phone to the side the GUI also rotates another 90° further (also resulting in a smaller displayed area).

Expected result would be to e.g. have an option to start ScummVM in some kind of a "fixed" landscape mode or to have corrected auto rotation.

Ideas on a "fixed" landscape mode (locking the orientation) are in the second post of the following thread:

Except this issue ScummVM is running very well.

To process your bug report appropriately, we need you to provide the following additional information:

* ScummVM version (PLEASE test the latest CVS/Daily build) * Bug details, including instructions on reproducing it * Language of game (English, German, ...) * Version of game (talkie, floppy, ...) * Platform and Compiler (Win32, Linux, MacOS, ...) * Attach a save game if possible * If this bug only occurred recently, please note the last version without the bug, and the first version including the bug. That way we can fix it quicker by looking at the changes made.

This should only take you a little time but will make it much easier for us to process your bug report in a way that satisfies both you and us.

Thank you for your support!

The platform used is: Symbian S60 version 3 binary (in fact the nokia 5800 xm series uses S60 version 5 but this screen orientation issue is the only error here)

The bug occurs with both the actual 0.13.1 version and the latest build (0.14 svn) downloaded from In fact the results with version 0.13.1 are better then those with the 0.14 svn build (i.e. the 0.14 svn version doesn't launch in fullscreen but has the virtual keyboard enabled without the option to hide/disable it).

The language used for the GUI is english (the game tested was german language). As far as observed the language doesn't make any difference to this issue as the problem already appears in the main GUI and persists also in game.

Thanks a lot!

Sigh ... kind of overlooked the following thread: Anotherguest's solution (using the "virtual keyboard") works: "... tapping 'CTRL' tap '2' then 'CTRL' again. ..."

So thats fixed for me .. excuse this unnecessary bug report.

Thanks again for the great software!
