CHEWY: Crash during intro

Reported by: joeraz Owned by: bluegr
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Chewy

Cc: Game: Chewy: ESC from F5


In the latest daily build (2.6.0git6259-g19c3f539a73), when I try to start Chewy: ESC from F5, the game crashes for me during the intro sequence.

First, I see the game logo appear, then there's a scene where a red spaceship flies by - during this scene, the game, and ScummVM always just crashes to the desktop. I tried running ScummVM from a command prompt window - no error is outputted, it just quits completely. If I hit escape before the crash, it skips to the main menu and I can play from there, but otherwise, it just crashes. After doing this a couple times, the game just automatically skips the intro, though the crash happens again after removing and re-adding the game configuration.

I attempted to run the game on two computers - one Windows 10 and the other Windows 11, and got the same results on both.

I have the same issue with the current daily build 2.6.0pre26-gdac4ba3e1d9 on macOS 12.4.
I can avoid the crash by adjusting the audio options of the game in ScummVM.
When I override global audio settings and set "Text and speech" to Subtitles or both the intro works and ScummVM doesn't crash anymore, setting it back to Speech crashes ScummVM again.

Unfortunately for me the intro isn't playing correctly the parts where they speek is skipped almost immediately also it could be that the playback is a bit too fast.
Also there is no music during the sequence but I think that's a known issue.

This fixes also another crash for me when the feeding sequence would start, see ticket #13524. Maybe it also fixes additional crashes for other video sequence but I'm not that far into the game yet..

The intro should be fixed now, for both speech + subtitles and speech only setting
