#13754 closed defect (fixed)

Waxworks crashes in the Pyramids/Mine when an enemy hit you.

Reported by: Holy-Pat Owned by: NMIError
Priority: high Component: Engine: AGOS
Version: Keywords: waxworks
Cc: Holy-Pat Game: Waxworks

Description (last modified by Holy-Pat)

With the new release V2.6.0 (my computer is an 2017 intel MacBook Air with the latest macOS Monterey 12.5) I discovered a new bug with Waxworks. When you enter the Pyramids or the Mine and you got hit by an enemy, the game crashes. The engine just can not load the sound file. This happens with my original boxed Amiga version, as well as the GOG.com PC version. I tested the English and German version. With the former V2.5.1 this bug isn't there. I also checked the latest nightly build. As far as I can tell other AGOS games such as Elvira I & II runs smooth as before.

Here is the logfile:

In the PC version is a workaround. If you disable "Prefer digital sound effects" in the Game tab, the game doesn't crash. Of course this only works with the PC version, not the Amiga one.

This should be fixed in the next daily build. Could you please re-test and confirm?
