BASS: Does not seem to save/restore games again

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

Description

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).

Also I tried 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.

I submit a report earlier, and I was answered that I
must check that the savepath should be to a writeable
directory, I checked and found that it is writeable indeed.

Here's the savepath in my .scummvmrc :

savepath=/home/ant1/.scummvm

and it is a writeable directory, also it did contain
the files:
SKY-VM.000 SKY-VM-CD.ASD SKY-VM.SAV
queen.asd queen.s00 queen.s01 queen.s02

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

The reason I am submitting a new report is that the
report I previously submitted has been closed.

Strange... usually, I can gunzip ScummVM save files to get
at the data inside them, but with these I'm told that
SKY-VM.000 and SKY-VM.SAV are encrypted, and that
SKY-VM-CD.ASD "has flags 0xc5".

Could they be corrupt somehow?

I tried to uncompress the files with WinRAR, it said that
they are corrupted (CRC error).

If you delete all the SKY savegames and create new ones,
are those broken as well?

comment:4 by SF/aelmahmoudy, 13 years ago

Ok, I removed the SKY* files & ran BAAS game again. I still
got the same problem, here's the output of file command:
[ant1@ants:~/.scummvm]$file *
queen.asd: gzip compressed data, ASCII, extra field,
encrypted
queen.s00: gzip compressed data, from Unix
queen.s01: gzip compressed data, from Unix

I suspect it's not directly a ScummVM problem...
Is it possible that you are using some kind of outdated
and/or broken zlib version?
Maybe you could try compiling ScummVM without zlib support
or update the library?

comment:6 by SF/aelmahmoudy, 13 years ago

I am using zlib 1.2.3
