Game: Simon the Sorcerer 2


ScummVM 0.8.0CVS (Mar 21 2005 13:35:24)
Features compiled in: Vorbis FLAC MP3 ALSA zLib MPEG2

I start simon 2 with the ALSA sound driver (fluidsynth as MIDI
server), when I then press ctrl-q to quit, the game freezes and I
have to "kill -9" scummvm. This doesn't happen with other sound

To process your bug report appropriately, we need you to
provide the following additional information:

* ScummVM version (PLEASE test the latest CVS/Daily build)
* Bug details, including instructions on reproducing it
* Language of game (English, German, ...)
* Version of game (talkie, floppy, ...)
* Platform and Compiler (Win32, Linux, MacOS, ...)
* Attach a save game if possible
* If this bug only occurred recently, please note the last
version without the bug, and the first version including
the bug. That way we can fix it quicker by looking at the
changes made.

This should only take you a little time but will make it much easier for
us to process your bug report in a way that satisfies both you and us.

Thank you for your support!

I'm sorry for the lack of details, but now it seems to me it's unrelated to
Simon2 and even to Scummvm (but it's strange it only happened with
Simon2 yesterday).

After some more testing and getting the same behaviour from time to time,
I'd say it's more related with alsa and soundcard configuration. I have a
crappy soundcard that doesn't do hardware mixing, so I have to configure
some kind of sharing. When I don't have it properly set *and* there is a
conflict (as when using a fluidsynth and multi_midi) I get these hangs
when exiting a game, it happens at least with monkey and monkey2 too.

I don't know if it's a problem of scummvm or what, but I'd say it's more
likely my fault (and my soundcard's), although, if possible, scummvm
should attempt more graceful "crashes" than just hanging.

In case it still matters, this is a laptop with an i810 (or somethin) card,
Mandrake 10.1 installed.

Yes, it is obviously fault of your misconfigured system.
