#2239 closed defect (invalid)

PALM: TealScript "pen out of sync"

Reported by: SF/kalis0 Owned by: SF/chrilith
Priority: low Component: Port: PalmOS
Keywords: Cc:


# ScummVM version: PalmOS 0.7.0 / 0.8.0 CVS test build
# Platform: PalmOS

I was so sad to install scummvm on my lifedrive, just
to find out it crashed bad. I managed to narrow the
problem to TealScript. If TealScript is disabled,
everything is as fine as it could be. If TealScript is
enabled, tracing a graffiti stroke, intenionally or by
mistake (writeanywhere enabled or not, or in the
graffiti area) makes the device soft-reset, and upon
restart, there's an error: "q pen, out of sync". Simple
(and only) solution (?) is to uncheck "enable globally"
in TealScript. I hope this will be fixed ;)

What makes you think this is a bug iun ScummVM and not in TealScript?
Have you filed a similar report with the TealScript developers already?

Yes, TealScript is some kind of hack and so, may crash,
don't (can't) know why, but I'm open. Just change the priority.

Let us know if you have feedback from TealPoint.

"What makes you think this is a bug iun ScummVM and not in

On reset, the error is labelled as happening in ScummVM, not
TS. The other thing is that SVM is the sole program to do
that (and I try/use lots). But you're right that's too much
of a quick conclusion from me.

"Have you filed a similar report with the TealScript developers
no I didn't, because of my above (and too fast) conclusion.
I was using TS v3.76, I checked their changelog, and there
was nothing remotely related, so at first I didn't bother to
update to v3.82. Again, my mistake. then, later on, I tried
blindly v3.82, just in case, and guess what, it seems to
work. Sorry for the bother, somehow, I was too eager to help.
Still, as a programmer, I think there might be something
fishy behind the scene, since SVM is the very sole app to do
this together with ScummVM...

TealScript is a hack. If anything in it breaks, the error
will (almost?) always be attributed to the program that was
running at that time, so it's "normal" that ScummVM is
blamed, even if it was really TealScripts fault...

Also, it's not unusal that a hack works in most cases, and
only breaks in certain special circumstances -- like running
certain special programms. I haven't used a Palm for a long
time, but I recally reading a lot about problems with
TealScript and similar hacks in the past, so I'm not
surprised there still are some....

Of course it is still possible that ScummVM is somehow at
fault, but I think that's rather unlikely (esp. since things
work fine with a newer TealScript version). It's more likely
that ScummVM does some unusal things and TealScript got
"confused" by that...
