Likely caused by my recent SMUSH cleanup. Haven't had time to look into this yet, though.

comment:2 by eriktorbjorn, 17 years ago

Works for me with revision 24541, but not 24542. The commit message was "SCUMM: Further SMUSH audio channel cleanup; this time unified some code, and got rid of one set of memory buffers".

comment:3 by eriktorbjorn, 17 years ago

Simply removing the assert() allowed me to get across the gorge. The only thing I noticed was that the music kept playing in a scene where I'm not sure it should have.

But I don't understand the SMUSH player anywhere near enough to commit a change like that, because I assume the assertion was added for a reason...

comment:4 by fingolfin, 17 years ago

That assert wasn't added, it was there before (just in the form of an if(...) error(...); statement).

If it triggers, then that means that the channel believes it has run out of data. Normally, if you remove the assert I'd expect lots of static ?!? but maybe I messed up some part of the internal logic during my rewrite.

Oh wait, I missed that the error is in SaudChannel, were the assert wasn't there before, and which I switched from 16 bit stereo to 8bit mono. So it might well be that something went wrong while doing that conversion.

comment:6 by eriktorbjorn, 17 years ago

For me, the error only happens when going towards the mink farm, not the gorge. The _dataSize variable is initialized to -1 by the SaudChannel constructor, and then to -2 by SaudChannel::setParameters(). After that, getSoundData() is called repeatedly, but _dataSize remains unchanged.

(I'm using compressed files, if that makes any difference.)

comment:7 by fingolfin, 17 years ago

You are right. I changed it to only assert when _keepSize is set to false. Alas, that code still is in need of further cleanup, I'd say :)
