DOTT: crash when USE Stamp with Contract

Reported by: SF/timohepolis Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Day of the Tentacle


Today I tried to solve a puzzle by combining the "Pony Express stamp" with the "Contract" to get my 2 million dollars for the diamond. The instant I USE the stamp on the contract, with either of the characters, SCUMMVM shuts down instantly.

I tried both things: 1. Use the stamp on contract without signature by prof. 2. Use the stamp on contract with signature by prof.

In both cases scummvm crashes back to desktop!

I´m using scummVM 0.9.0. (win32) and a german retail version of Dott

Try the windows daily build from today, I made a change yesterday which might affect this issue.

This issue was reported several times in the past years, but so far we never were able to reproduce it -- I do not doubt that you have the problem, but it's kinda difficult to fix something when it ain't broken for you :-). Anyway, I hope to finally have figured out this one, so I am curious whether the latest snapshot will fix the issue for you...

YES thats IT!

with the newest daily snapshot (082206)it works very well! thank you ;)

Of course that doesn't mean much, since it's in the very nature of this bug to vanish and re-appear all the time...

Could you go back and try it again with 0.9.0 to see if it "still" crashes with that version?

now, re-installed scummVM 0.9.0., it also works very well. either with contract signed, or without signature. weird thing...

but thanks for your fast help! now, dott is trhough, i´m gonna try full throttle ;)

Well, maybe may changes helped, or maybe this heisenbug just vanished temporarily (as it has done so often in the past)...
