#2576 closed defect

SCUMM: Can't save.

Reported by: SF/rickm70 Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Port: Win32
Keywords: Cc:


I am not able to save my game within ANY of the SCUMM-
supported games I have.

As well, whenever I try to view a close-up screen
(i.e. generator blueprints in tentacle or newspaper
in atlantis), the game freezes, with the error
message (example from atlantis):

"failed to save game state to file:

followed by

"failed to load game state from file:

After this, the game locks up, and I have to Window-D
my way out.

I am using Windows XP Home.

If you have any ideas, please contact me.

Thank you.

That usually means that the "Save Path" setting (see the
Options dialog, under Paths) isn't pointing to a writeable

(There was a bug once that made it seem as if the save path
was correctly set, even though it wasn't, but that was a
long time ago. ScummVM 0.6.1, maybe?)

Indeed, sounds like your savepath is either non-existent or missing. Set a new
one in the GUI and you should be done.

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!
