QFG4: Crash entering the inn

Reported by: Vhati Owned by: sluicebox
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords: sci32 original has-pull-request
Cc: Game: Quest for Glory 4


I started a new game, grabbed the Dark One Sign, ran straight to town before sunrise, climbed the wall. The sun was up as I reach the Burgomeister's window, who did his shouty thing. When I click the inn's door, ScummVM crashed. As luck would have it, I created a save immediately before clicking the door.

I was unable to replicate this in the original interpreter.

Forgot to mention: the console said...
" " "
lookupSelector: Attempt to send to non-object or invalid script. Address 0000:00
00, method Grycler::init (room 260, script 64977, localCall ffffffff)!
" " "

Same script, different room, but sounds like the same cause as bug #10747. This will need that script to be investigate and disassembled by a SCI developer and a workaround patched into the engine.

If this is just a read of an uninitialised variable, this should be a simple solution, but if the issue is more complex, a script patch may be needed:

Yep. Crashes in the same way.

At that moment, hero's "looper" property is stopGroop.
stopGroop's "oldCycler" property is 0000:0000.

oldCycler is already null the moment the OP savegame is restored.
