SCI: LSL5: Game crashing

Reported by: eyeyoga Owned by: sluicebox
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords: Crash, export function
Cc: eyeyoga Game: Leisure Suit Larry 5



Im repeatedly getting a problem while playing the game Leisure Suit Larry 5

At certain points a console pops up and reads:

ScummVM 2.7.1 (Jul 23 2023 00:18:44)
Console is ready
Debugger started, type 'exit' to return to the game.
Type 'help' to see a little list of commands and variables.
ERROR: Invalid export 0 function pointer (36568) in script 258!

if I type exit then the game and scummvm application crashes

Does this always happen at the same point in the game? Do you have a saved game, that you can attach, just before this crash occurs?

Hello! Thanks for reporting this crash.

The usual outcome is that your game files are corrupt or incomplete or have broken third party patch files. LSL5 is a popular game that's been supported for a long time and no one has reported anything like this. The recent script patches have been minor and I don't see how they could explain this.

Please try copying the files again from your legitimate media or GOG distribution, etc.

Otherwise we will need save game files and the scummvm.log contents so that we can attempt to reproduce this, along with answers to antoniou79's questions. Which room(s) does this happen in, etc.

Guess that was it. =)

Feel free to re-open if this is still an issue.
