BASS: Resets at Game Start (Palm TX)

Reported by: SF/jmccorm Owned by: SF/chrilith
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Sky
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Beneath a Steel Sky


ScummVM: 0.9.0CVS Jan 13 2006 21:10:55
Language: English
Version: Talkie CDROM
Platform: PalmOS 5, Palm TX
Details: I start up Scumm from my SD card. It has
autodected BASS on my SD card. I select the game and
hit place. The screen turns white with some really
small text written on it. It looks like SCUMM version
information or something, but it is too fast and too
small to read. Something with the words, "Loading,
please wait" in the middle.

The screen then turns black with a thin white border
around it. The Palm unit then resets.

I did a hard reset and wiped my Palm clean and just
installed this program. The problem was the same.

I installed just the floppy version of BASS. Still the
same. Sound was set to off (default) on both tests.

Yes, I updated the sky.cpt file. BASS was downloaded
from Tried Display: Normal and
Display: Hires+, no effect.

NOTE: I tried Flight of the Amazon Queen. Seems to work
without a hitch!

I enabled sound and also turned the debug level up to
9, but it was not helpful (floppy version)--
Debuglevel (from command line): 9

Output sample rate: 8000 Hz
Found BASS version v0.0348 (1445 dnr entries)

Tried setting display to Hercules (Amber). No effect.
It at least correctly retracts the graffiti area before
going into hires (when I turned it on) and drawing the
white border on a black background.

Hope I'm not spamming the ticket. I put the SD card into my
Palm Zire 72. (Without having sync'd a menu skin to the Zire
in advance).

I select BASS using the alternate green text GUI. After it
drawings the black screen with the white border, a window
comes up titled, "Fatal Alaert" with text inside of the
window that says, "Fatal Exception". There is a button at
the bottom which says Reset. Obviously, hitting the button
resets the unit.

I have zipped up my /palm/program/scummvm directory tree
from my SD card and attached it to this ticket, in case it
provides any value.

UPDATE: The bug tracker isn't letting me attach a file. It
transfers the file, and then giver the error "select a
group". Email me if the zip file is useful to your efforts.

Apparently there are problems with downloading the SKY.CPT
file from our website once in a while. Can you verify that
your SKY.CPT file is correct? Do the same files work with
ScummVM on windows?
