Hello! Thanks for all your hard work; I really appreciate the heck out of the ScummVM team.

I'm encountering a crash in Zork Nemesis. In the Asylum, I get the safe out of the freezer, put it in the machine next to the freezer and go to look at the front of the safe and the whole thing crashes. I've attached a save game to reproduce the bug, and the crash report from OS X.

I'm unable to reproduce this bug. I place the safe, then check its front, and the safe puzzle opens normally. I've tried with both the CD and DVD versions. Which version have you got?

comment:4 by heumann, 4 years ago

This is the CD version; I followed the directions on the wiki and applied the subtitles patch and moved files around as instructed.

I just updated to 2.2.0, but the crash still happens. I'm attaching another crash report.

Thanks again for all your help! Even if we don't fix this (and I hope we do as I'm really enjoying this game), it's really lovely to file a bug report and actually get responses this quickly.

I have a slight update. I realized that there were other areas I could visit in the game, and so completed the monastery and the conservatory, thinking that this might alter something in my save file that might avoid triggering this crash. The crash still happens, but in the conservatory I found out that some visual elements weren't displaying: the images for the instruments that are lying on the floor of the practice room weren't displaying (in fact I had to look up a video walkthrough before I realized they were supposed to be there). They also didn't appear when I placed the instruments on the chairs.

I wonder if my version of the CD content is missing a source file somewhere. If by any chance the images of those instruments are stored in the same place as the safe front, maybe that's the cause of my crash.

I can't reproduce these issues, so it seems your copy of the game has corrupted data files.

Try buying a good copy from GoG or Steam. You can find links in our relevant wiki page:
