I don't have this problem. Can you tell me :

- what version of the game you are using - what device you are using - what is the amount of free memory using the memory panel from scummvm for palmos

Did you try this out on your PC, too? That is, does the problem only occur on your Palm, or also at your windows/linux/whatever PC ?

comment:9 by SF/alexejv, 17 years ago

Yes, everything all right on PC. I have read some russian forums, and they have the same problems (on Palm only, i think Zire 72 or so), so i thought it could be a common problem.

I think this is a memory issue, i'll compile a new version based on lastest CVS, and a one with lower memory requirement.

comment:11 by fingolfin, 17 years ago

Any news on this?

comment:12 by SF/chrilith, 17 years ago

Well, didn't have my answer on the free memory.

I have uploaded a branch-0.7.0 snapshot here :

Can you try this new version and let me know if you still have the problem, there is 2 versions of the scumm engine can you try them both ?

Then can you tell me :

- if you were using the new modular version or the older one - what screen mode you were using (if "flipping" try "buffered" and you may have a system error message instead of just a freeze)

But if this was a memory problem this v0.7.0 will not help since there are some addition that use more memory now (Wiz object and new about dialog).

W/o assistance by the bug submitter, I am afraid we won't be able to do anything about this report...

Hi, I'm having the same problem as Alexei. My hardware is a Tunsgten E too, DOTT english version, ScummVM version 0.7.0 (Dec 23 2004). The memory tab reads 1911 free dynamic memory of a 2048 total, and 12769 storage of a 29503 total.

Haven't tried both versions of the engine, will try later today and then I submit the results here. Should I try with the 2005-01-03 test version, too?

Just detailing the error a little bit... the copy protection screen comes up, then I enter the correct proportions. The yellow message from the doctor is displayed, but then ScummVM hangs (with the copy protection screen still displayed), the only solution being a soft reset.

I have Monkey Island 2 and Fate of Atlantis installed on the same machine, running fine so far.

Thanks in advance, Alegretti

Yes, please try the lastest test version too, this one will give you engine startup memory too


comment:17 by SF/malegretti, 17 years ago

Hi there. Well, I've tried with the 0.7.0 engine from the zip file suggested on a previous post (although I believe it was the same version I used before, downloaded from the home page), and with the latest test available on the home page, with this results:

- 0.7.0: the problem remains exactly the same - latest test (2005-01-03): now shows the available startup memory, 1832 on my case, but then hangs on a black screen soon after (game doesn't even load).

Any more tests I could do to help?

Thanks, Alegretti
