Summary: Earl Mansin crash to debugger after pressing New gameAGS: Earl Mansin crash to debugger after pressing New game

@necros2k7 please try to provide some descriptive text of the issue in the main body of the ticket. Information such as the platform you are testing on (Android, Windows, Linux etc), the OS version, the ScummVM version(s) you've tested with, the steps to reproduce the error (even if trivial), all help the developers who will look into it.

In any case, this game is marked as broken in our wiki page with AGS games tested with ScummVM:
https://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php?title=AGS/Games

In that page, the game's 1.1 version seems to have been tested with ScummVM 2.6.0pre version.

I could also test today with a development build for 2.9.0git of ScummVM (from master HEAD, local build with minGW-w64, release mode) and the issue remains: The game with "crash" to debugger upon pressing the New Game option from its main menu.

The exact error message in the debugger is:
ERROR: NewRoom: Cannot run this command, since there was a RestartGame command already queued to run in "Room script", line 31!

The log file (I'm attaching it) shows warnings about decoding videos.
AGS version seems to be 2.62

Thanks for the report. These are two different issues.

  • The files in /data are "obfuscated" videos (you can play them with VLC for example) which use a codec that is currently unsupported
  • The script error also happens using upstream AGS, so this is not a scummvm bug. Most likely the current interpreter is more strict than before (the game is from 2007, and uses AGS 2.6). I'll open a bugreport on the AGS bugtracker

The upstream bugreport is here, if you want to track progress

Issue fixed in commit c7bb8a3, it will be included it tomorrow's daily builds.
This game uses unsupported videos, you can download a working set here, and extract the .zip to the /data folder

The game should be completable (at least, I completed it :) )
