GROOVIE: T7G: Loading crashes during some puzzles

Reported by: dafioram Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Groovie

Game: 7th Guest


Game: T7G GOG
ScummVM: 2.1.0git-3171-gad3feae490 (Aug 4)

This was allowed once saving/loading with the gmm was added to the code.

When trying to load a saved game using the GMM while a puzzle is interactive will cause a crash in some puzzles. I don't know enough about the engine to know when a puzzle is running, but that could be added to the canLoadCurrently function if that was understood. Currently, it just checks to see if _script is non-zero.

Saving using the GMM works just fine everywhere I tried.

The game can just be loaded to that save so not a big deal.

Trying to read a script bte at address 0x1757, while the script is just 0x0676 bytes long!

I went through a few of the puzzles and loaded another save to see if it crashed. Some do and some don't. Yes means it has the crash above and no means nothing happens when you try to load (no crash)

Microscope yes
Knight no
Maze/grate no
Telescope no
Knives no
Attic windows yes
Crypt yes
Queen yes
Bishop no
Matching tiles yes
Portrait. Portrait changes state
Coins different crash
Toy blocks different crash.
