AGS: The Adventures of Fatman - Error and crash during intro in 2003 version

Reported by: joeraz Owned by: dreammaster
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGS
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


In the original 2003 version of The Adventures of Fatman, if you choose to play the intro, midway through the intro, an error appears and the game crashes.

Although the error message states that it's likely the result of a code bug rather than an engine bug, the error does not occur when running the game through the original interpreter, suggesting the bug is in ScummVM. Also, this only occurs in the 2003 version of the game and not the 2007 version.

A screenshot of this error is attached.

Interesting.. I just tried running the 2004 demo in ScummVM and indeed got the crash, and then ran the demo in the latest stand-alone interpreter (Apr 11 2021), and it crashed there too. More than likely this was a mistake in the game itself that the older interpreter didn't have a specific check and error message for. Similar to how Shivah had a script bug in the overworld map that had to be worked around. I'll see if I can likewise do a workaround for this.

I've applied a workaround to basically ignoring the offending line so that the intro at least doesn't crash.
