FOTAQ: Crash after playing for a long time

Reported by: SF/ifo Owned by: cyxx
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Queen
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Flight of the Amazon Queen


When I played FOTAQ for several hours today, suddenly the game window disappeared leaving me on the console with the following messages:

WARNING: Adlib: Unknown control change message 0! WARNING: Adlib: Unknown control change message 32! scummvm: queen/bankman.cpp:123: Queen::BobFrame* Queen::BankManager::fetchFrame(unsigned int): Assertion `index < MAX_FRAMES_NUMBER' failed. Abgebrochen

"Abgebrochen" would be "Aborted" in English. The error happened on Sloth Island after having answered the riddle of the woman in the beginning of the second floor when the three doors should open. After the second one had opened, the game crashed.

The problem is that I couldn't reproduce the error, but as the error message looked quite expressive and this error is definitely a bug, I thought I'd post it. I don't know when these Adlib warnings appeared, as I played fullscreen.

ScummVM version is 0.6.0 under Linux, FOTAQ is the download version from your site.

As you said it, reproducing the error will be quite difficult. So, I'd like to have more informations : - which version, talkie or floppy ? - how many hours did you played without saving before experiencing the crash ? - in which location/room have you started playing ?

Oh, sorry, forgot the version: It's the talkie version. I created the last savegame when entering the temple, which was about 5 - 10 minutes before. The game already survived a much longer amount of time without saving (about 45 minutes). As far as I remember the location I have been when loading the last savegame (and continued playing on that day) was in Trader Bob's house.

This wasn't related to the time but to an invalid memory read. Fixed in CVS.
