SAM: Items in box causes crash

Reported by: SF/xene1 Owned by: eriktorbjorn
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Sam and Max


- ScummVM version (Daily build, feb 27 -04) - When I've tried that ride where you loose all your stuff and then get it back, the games hang when you want to look in the box with all your stuff, it seems like all the items in the box are sorted in rows(?) and if there are to many intems the game hangs. I've included a savegame; I'm s&m are supposed to get tar from this dino-land, the cup is not clickable so the bug really starts here. I tried to resort the items by riding the amusement-ride, loose the items and retrieve them again. When I try to look in the box, the game hangs, without any warning. This may not be a big bad bug since your only supposed to try the ride once, unfortenatly I tried the ride twice and I was unabled to resort the intems in the box. Great work otherwise!! - Language of game (English) - Version of game (CD, ISO) - Platform and Compiler (Win32) - Attach a save game if possible

I don't know what could have caused the bug in your savegame, but I've attached another savegame near the Cone of Tragedy where Sam has amassed a lot of stuff. ScummVM crashes if I go on the ride, get my stuff back and look at my inventory.

I've applied a fix for the crash to the CVS trunk, which means that at the moment it won't go into 0.6.0. I hope it will be accepted into the branch - it does get rid of some old cruft - but I'm going to need some help verifying that the fix is correct first, at the very least.

Unfortunately, I'm afraid it won't un-hose your savegame either way.

After some discussion, the fix was applied to the branch as well, meaning that it will be in 0.6.0 after all. I think it will prevent the bug from happening again in the future but, as I said, it doesn't do anything to repair savegames that were harmed by it.
