SCI: Rama: (French version): assertion failure playing video at the iceport

Reported by: voyageur Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: RAMA


Arriving at the iceport (just before leaving for New York), the video with doctor Brown always crashes when reaching the "they ordered us to evacuate immediately":

User picked target 'rama-fr' (gameid 'sci')...
  Looking for a plugin supporting this gameid... SCI [SCI0, SCI01, SCI10, SCI11, SCI32]
  Starting 'Sierra SCI Game'
scummvm: video/coktel_decoder.cpp:359: uint32 Video::CoktelDecoder::deLZ77(byte*, const byte*, uint32, uint32): Assertion `srcSize >= 1' failed.
zsh: abort      scummvm

100% reproducible, tested with 2.0 and current git (482c0757475bb096c2090018a1dc10df01362498)
Game is Rama French version (1.000.000 from VERSION file)
Compiled on Gentoo Linux (x86_64)

Skipping the video with ESC before crash works, but that one has some exposition value.

Thanks for your report!

I am sorry your gameplay was cut short. This game is a real gem.

Would you mind providing a full backtrace for this crash? If you don't know how to do this I do it by using gdb with the following steps:

  1. gdb ./scummvm
  2. run

Then play scummvm and reproduce the bug, when it crashes simply type "bt" within the gdb session to get a line by line back trace then post it here. If you use tripple curly backets to enclose the code it will look nicer in this ticket.


In the mean time if you have the english version I can give you a save at the same part, or maybe there is an online website that has a french save at the start of new york.

Okay you can skip the crash I missed that the first time. Thats good that its not progress blocking.

I've been able to watch that video in my French version of Rama using your save. Would you mind checking the files were not corrupted while copying from your CDs? I've attached a md5sum listing of the files I have. Maybe we can spot differences with those your have.

Thanks bgK, looks like a corrupted file :(

I miss some patches files, but here I guess vmd/37011.vmd is the culprit:

mplayer displays a warning at the same point when playing vmd/37011.vmd:

Error while decoding frame!

Sorry for the noise then, it was a corrupted file problem indeed! Should I close this ticket, or do you want the video uploaded somewhere to take a closer look? (it is ~9MB so too large for attachment here)
