SYMBIAN: Simon2 during Intro

Reported by: SF/schlabo Owned by: anotherguest
Priority: low Component: Engine: AGOS
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Simon the Sorcerer 2


When I try to cancel the intro, it always crashes after
the company logo. If I leave it running, it crashes
some time during the intro.

There is no error message, the sound just stops and the
screen goes black - only the ScummVM-Keyboard-bar is
still visible. The only thing I can do is to take out
the battery as there is no other way of getting out or
switching off the phone anymore. The scummvm.stderr.txt
and scummvm.stdout.txt-files created by the
0.9CVS-versions are empty.

I tried it with no sound, mp3s and ogg. I tested it
with v0.6, v0.8, 0.8.2 and the latest 0.9CVS. It's
always the same. When I run the game from with ScummVM
for Windows, it works fine...

I'm using a SonyEricsson P900 and the Simon the
Sorcerer 2 DOS CD version.

Ok, didn't know that I had to reply here :)

Anyway, when your question was posted I tried it again using
the latest CVS/SVN-build version and the situation is still
the same - I was unable to get through to the game.

Lars / Anotherguest, any ideas on this? Or should I try to email Jurgen
'SumthinWicked' Braam about this?

Raising priority. This is a release-critical bug.

comment:12 by anotherguest, 13 years ago

When the screen just goes black its usually a race
condition between two mutexes. I will see if I can find any
cause of it.

comment:13 by anotherguest, 13 years ago

I ran the intro with the latest SVN code using the french
cd rom version without any problems. I dont this bug has a
occurance of 100% with all versions of Simon 2, so it might
be have its priority degraded!? Running with a english
version just gave opcode'0' unknown, but I think need a
proper version of Simon 2 floppy version to know, since
there are patched/cracked version out there which might not
work 100%, and those should n't be supported anyway or?

Resolution: fixed

comment:18 by anotherguest, 13 years ago

I have been working with the SDL integration for Symbian OS, and it seems like the mutex and thread integration has n't been all in place, something that should be working now.

I have had some problems in the beginning, where I had problems with locking Simon2, but could n't understand why, but after reviewing SDL I found a possible reason for the lockup.

comment:19 by fingolfin, 13 years ago

So is this fixed now (and thus can be closed) ? Or are you waiting for confirmation by the submitted that the fix worked ? (In that case a new daily build might be a good idea ... :)

comment:20 by anotherguest, 13 years ago

And closing it.
