BS2: Save failure with default Mac OS X savegame folder

Reported by: SF/stobiepole Owned by: SF/khalek
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Sword2

Game: Broken Sword 2

Description

Hi. I just tried playing Broken Sword II with the latest compiled version of Scummvm for Mac, and when I tried to save I got a couldn't open file error.

The new default Mac savegame folder is called 'ScummVM Savegames', which must to be the problem: the space in the name stuff things up. I changed the savegame folder to somewhere without any spaces and the problem seemed to be fixed.

I'll report any more bugs I come across. Keep up the good work and all.

Chris

I can't reproduce this under Windows: I tried changing my savegame directory to one with spaces in it, and it worked.

Have you tried it with any other games, e.g. the freeware versions of Beneath a Steel Sky or Flight of the Amazon Queen? They all use the same SaveFileManager class, so they should behave - or misbehave - in the same way.

It looks like the problem could be with the SaveFileManager class, because FOTAQ won't save either (it doesn't make an error message, but it doesn't make a savefile either if there's a space in the name of the path).

I tested this on Mac OS X before it went in and it worked fine then... I'll look into this as time permits. Assigning to me as I'm likely at fault for any problems with this.

Just to clarify, can you reproduce this when removing your config file? ie a file called something like "ScummVM Preferences" in a subdir of ~/Library.

In ~/Library/Preferences? Ah...that seems to have fixed it. Well, there you go. Maybe worth checking for old config files then.

I don't suppose you know what value savepath was previously set to in the config file?

comment:9 by SF/stobiepole, 15 years ago

I can't tell you what the previous savepath was (I trashed the file), but it was most likely ~/Applications/Games/ScummVM

Deleting the old preference file solved the problem.
