Beneath A Steel Sky: Can Populate More Than One Save Slot At A Time

Reported by: alayGit Owned by: alayGit
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Sky
Version: Keywords:
Cc: alayGit Game: Beneath a Steel Sky


ScummVM 2.6.0git2179-g25c63234e49 (Dec 27 2021 14:36:45)

Beneath A Steel Sky: v0.0372cd

OS: Windows

Steps To Reproduce:

  1. Start a fresh games with no saves yet
  2. Press F5 to open the menu
  3. Click the 'Save Game' button
  4. Click on slot 7 and type a save name. Do not push the save game button
  5. Click on slot 8 and type a save name. This time push save
  6. Press F5 to return to the save menu
  7. Click button 1 'Restore'.
  8. Note that there are saves in both 7 and 8.
  9. Attempt to restore slot 7. Nothing happens :(
  10. Attempt to restore slot 8. Game loads like expected

Expected: Slot 7 never should have been saved in the first place.
Actual: There are two saves, one in 7 and one in 8. Slot seven is not loadable.

Tried out in DOSBox and found that it clears slot 7 when I enter the data in 8.

Checked metadata file can see data for both slots.
However only a slot 8 file exists.

I attempted to attach the metadata file, but I can't find the attach button. Sorry to be frustrating. If someone can tell me how to fix this in the comments let me know.

Here is the metadata file Sky-VM.sav in base64. Scumm has ZLib compressed it as expected:
