#1100 closed defect (fixed)

BASS gets stuck

Reported by: SF/arcticwolf Owned by: lavosspawn
Priority: high Component: Engine: Sky
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Beneath a Steel Sky


* ScummVM version:

ScummVM 0.5.0 (Aug 2 2003 02:52:38)

* Bug details:

ScummVM gets stuck in an early scene of "Beneath a steel sky", precisely, in the "test section" where Anita is working after being reassigned by Lamb in the game. This manifests itself in the following ways:

- Foster is permanently stuck in the middle of the screen. - The words "Dummy message" are permanently displayed above his head. - A talk menu with the only option being "Never mind..." is open; selecting that option causes Foster to say that, but does not otherwise change the game's state. - Saving / loading is impossible.

Also see attached screenshot; "background action" continues without problems, and music is also still playing.

It's not clear to me whether the bug is reproducible; I haven't tried to do so (mostly due to lack of a saved game to use as a starting point).

* Language of game:


* Version of game:

Floppy version, downloaded from ScummVM website.

* Platform and compiler:

Windows XP w/ SP1 (version 5.1.2600).

* Save game:

Saving the game is not possible.

* Last working version:

This bug happens intermittently for me as well, Though Not quite as severe, It usually crashes only if you offer joey a new shell before meeting all the conditions to obtain the shell.
