After entering the room to the right of where you first build joey, it crashes with the following;

Music 3 requested but doesn't exist in file.! scummvm: backends/sdl/sdl.cpp:211: virtual void OSystem_SDL::update_screen(): Assertion `_hwscreen != __null' failed. Aborted

This happens on both the CD & Floppy versions of BASS.

ScummVM 0.5.1 (Aug 6 2003 17:38:16) on Redhat 9.

Is that crash reproducable? Using a savestate or when restarting from scratch? Did you play completely on 0.5.1 or loaded a 0.5.0 savestate?

comment:2 by SF/feathers1664, 21 years ago

Yes, its reproducable - it happens everytime, whenever I start from scratch.

Its 0.5.1

Is there anyone (apart from feathers1664) who has managed to reproduce this? I haven't, neither under Linux nor Windows, and if it was a widespread problem, surely we'd have heard a lot more about it...

Yes, I can, and several of the users of my Debian package can.

I think I finally see what's causing it, though I'm not sure why I can't reproduce it in the CVS version because it looks as if the bug might still be there.

What happens is that if you let the intro end on its own, section 1 is never loaded. The game appears to think it already is in that section. That's why you - well, I at least - don't get the factory music either. It has the same id (but different section) as the music at the end of the intro, so it thinks it's already playing it.

If you terminate the intro, then it's forced to load section 1 because the "restore" flag is set, so everything works ok.

I'm not sure yet what the best way of fixing the bug is, but the good news is that this means you can cut out most of the intro from the game, and still be able to reproduce it.
