TITANIC: Assertion failure using volume slider

Reported by: csnover Owned by: dafioram
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Titanic
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Starship Titanic


Build: 6fac0ace2c844aa68c2482362021981ed1db931b + PR 975, macOS 10.11, SDL 2.0.5, ASan on


This bug is not consistently reproducible using these instructions. Sometimes it takes a few tries of dragging before it breaks. Reproducibility seemed to be improved by fast mouse movement and by interacting with the right quarter of the black slider, but that could be coincidental.

  1. Load attached save
  2. Click on volume button in the settings panel
  3. Click on the black slider for Master volume until the music fades out (not sure if this step is required)
  4. Mouse down on the Master volume black slider, drag, release

Expected: No crash (not sure what the correct behaviour here is supposed to be, probably either snapping the volume back to its original position or setting it to wherever it is when the mouse button is released)
Actual: Crash

Console output:

Assertion failed: (_hideCounter >= 0), function decHideCounter, file scummvm/engines/titanic/support/mouse_cursor.cpp, line 109.

Duplicate of #10083.

You’re right, this is very similar to #10083 and probably has the same root cause. (I am going to try advocating again for the DuplicateTicketPlugin so this is less likely to happen.)

There is a slight difference in the backtraces, however; the one here has a frame going through CPhotograph. I am not sure if that is just an artefact of different compilers or if there is a more pertinent reason why CPhotograph is in this backtrace and not in the one in #10083.
