AGS - Starting 2 AGS games in succession causes crash

Reported by: Arjak89 Owned by: criezy
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGS
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


If the Misc option "Always return to the launcher when leaving a game" is active, starting an AGS game, quitting back to the launcher, and starting another AGS game will cause a crash.

Steps to recreate:

  1. Make sure "Always return to the launcher when leaving a game" is checkmarked in the Options menu in the Misc tab.
  1. Start an AGS game, then quit.
  1. Start an AGS game. It can be the same one or a different one. ScummVM will crash.

ScummVM version: 2.3.0pre37-gb8d6afb0a2 (Win64)

Note: This was discovered using 5 Days a Stranger, King's Quest 1 Remake, and combinations of both.

Thanks. This is now fixed.

Note: You do not need to set the "Always return to the launcher when leaving a game" option. If from the AGS game you displayed the ScummVM menu (Ctrl+F5) and selected Return to Launcher, and then tried to start an AGS game again, this was also crashing.
