BS2fr: Savegames are corrupted

Reported by: SF/seyb Owned by: eriktorbjorn

Cc: Game: Broken Sword 2


Broken Sword 2 - French w/ French Speaking - PC ; Platform = OSX 10.3.4

Hi !

With at least the 3 latest CVS ScummVM OSX (20040606, 20040522 and one more + 0.6.0 stable), it's impossible to load a saved game. To reproduce this, start a new game and when you get control of Georges, just save a game. Quit and relaunch BS2 and try to load your saved game, there should be a message saying something like : "Impossible to load this game, it is corrupted".

I guess such a big bug won't occur with the English Version (it would be known for a while if it was so), but it would be great if we could find out why this bug is occuring... At least for the French speaking community. ;-)

Thanks a lot for your wonderful work in here. :-)

Could you try with the latest version? I fixed a bug like that in the CVS version recently. (I accidentally broke some code when all I was trying to do was cleaning it up a bit, and it took several days before I even noticed.)

Though that bug shouldn't affect 0.6.0... well, not unless you try to load a corrupted savegame into it, of course. But savegames created with 0.6.0 ought to be ok.

Just to clarify, any corrupted savegame is beyond salvation. The fix I made just ensures - I hope - that that new savegames will not be corrupted.

Ok, I tried with the 0.6.0 stable and you were right, it works with a fresh saved game. Thanks for pointing that. :-) Now I'm trying to find out how CVS works to tell you how it is going on with the latest version (there's no binaries yet for OSX). ;-)

There is a new OS X snapshot up if you haven't already managed to build your own.

comment:7 by SF/seyb, 17 years ago

I tried the latest OSX Snapshot (couldn't build mine. I tried hard ! ;-) ). My 0.6.0 stable saved game works like a charm with this new version, thanks a lot. :-)

That's not surprising since the savegame format never changed -- at least not deliberately. The big question is, can the snapshot version create new savegames that can be loaded by any version at all? :-)

comment:9 by eriktorbjorn, 17 years ago

So what is the status of this? Does the new snapshot create usable savegames for you, or doesn't it?
