SKY: Does not seem to save/restore games

Reported by: SF/aelmahmoudy Owned by: sev-
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Sky
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Beneath a Steel Sky


Version: ScummVM 0.8.2 (Jun 16 2006 18:41:07) Features compiled in: Vorbis FLAC MP3 ALSA zLib MPEG2 FluidSynth

Game language: English (GB) Game version: CD Platform: Linux Compiler: gcc

When I save a game in a slot, it doesn't give me any error or so. But when I attempt to restore the game from the slot I first realize that the name that I written in that slot has dissappeared (or I find wierd characters in other slots that I did not save in). Also I get messages like this:

Can't read from file 'SKY-VM.000'

When I attempt to restore from autosave I get the same error but for file 'SKY-VM-CD.ASD'

I thought that maybe I got I also got that error with version 0.8.0 (so I upgraded to 0.8.2).

Check that your save path (see paths in options dialog) points to writable directory.

Here's the savepath in my .scummvmrc :


and it is a writeable directory, also it did contain the files SKY-VM.001, SKY-VM.000, SKY-VM-CD.ASD, SKY-VM.SAV

I tried to change the savepath to /home/ant1 , but I still get the same problem.

Ok, I just tried with another game called Queen of Amazon, and the save/restore game worked just fine.

So I think this has to be a problem with 'Beneath a Steel Sky' game.
