BASS: Does not seem to save/restore games again
|Reported by:||SF/aelmahmoudy||Owned by:|
|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).
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 :
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?

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 queen.s02: gzip compressed data, from Unix SKY-VM.000: gzip compressed data, ASCII, extra field, encrypted SKY-VM-CD.ASD: gzip compressed data, ASCII, extra field, encrypted SKY-VM.SAV: gzip compressed data, ASCII, continuation, was "\030\005£`\024\014w"

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?

I am using zlib 1.2.3
