SCI: Shivers: Access Violation rendering picture under RetroPie

Reported by: ParadoxGBB Owned by: dafioram
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords: sci32
Cc: Game: Shivers 1



First off, thanks so much for the great work here, it's amazing the number of titles you guys are able to support.

I've been trying to get as many as I can running on my Raspberry Pi 3 under RetroPie, and I've noticed the following parsing violation on the opening picture after the video intro of Shivers 1:

(this is from memory, apologies)

Pic1012(abs: 2 + 1 > 0)!

I've tried this on both published versions for retroPie, SDL1 and SDL2, and today refreshed the source to make sure it's still an issue. Now it gives a different error:

ERROR: Compression type not supported - P: 1012 C: 0!

This for some reason does not reproduce on my windows desktop.

I saw a similar bug so using that as guidance I extracted the resource via sv.exe (on my windows desktop) and included it here. The resource appears to be the opening picture of the locked gate at the museum.

Thanks for your report! There is no problem with the picture resource you have uploaded, it matches the original resource data. I also cannot reproduce any problem just by starting a new game on macOS. (I do not have any RPi.)

Since you haven’t mentioned which version of ScummVM you are trying to use or how you have built it or the exact steps to reproduce the problem, it is difficult to take any action on this ticket other than to close it, so please provide that information.

The symptoms you have described sound to me first like a device, OS, or compiler problem, rather than a bug in ScummVM, since from what you have said so far the behaviour only changes between compilations, and it is not reproduced elsewhere.

Please try the official Raspberry Pi 2.0 build and report exactly the error if it occurs with that build. If you have other hardware, please test on the other hardware. If you can provide all the information requested when reporting a bug we may be able to take additional action. Thanks!

Here's some additional information that I hope can make this ticket actionable.

1) The automation set up by retroPie allows you to install from source or from binary with the same ease. I moved to installing source after hitting this problem, partially because I saw a resolved issue around parsing bitmaps and I thought it might be worth a shot. I reinstalled the released binary (2.0.1pre) and now the first error I saw is reported again:

ERROR: Access violation reading Pic.1012: 2 + 1 > 0 (abs: 2 + 1 > 0)!

2) The information you request:

Version: 2.0.1pre (With SDL1 support)
Language: English
Version of Game: CD
OS: RetroPie 3.4.7 (This is based on top of Raspbian Jessie)
ScummVM settings: all default, no component dropdown under engine that I can see.
Repro: after intro video, an access violation will automatically trip up the debugger.

I can provide debugger output if you wish me to, or if there's logs to extract I can provide them too.

What is your version is your libpng?
What happens if you build the source for SDL2 scummvm?

Now that a new Retropie version is out and supports stretch and uses scummvm 2.0 with sdl2 there shouldn't be any issues. Please reopen if the new version is buggy.
