#3549 closed defect (fixed)

lure crashes when waiting for patrol

Game: Lure of the Temptress


At one point during the gameplay (savegame attached) one has to wait in front of the shop for a patrol to enter the shop. This causes scummvm to crash, probably in the moment when the patrol should enter the screen.

To reproduce it load the attached save game and wait a bit (usually less than a minute). This is with scummvm-20071230.tar.bz2.

I tried to run scummvm in gdb but found no obvious bug. The stack trace is included below, apparently one of the NPCs has a NULL-pointer as hotspot, which causes a crash in npcWalkingCheck.

Raising priority. This is a release-critical bug.

This has been fixed - an incorrect value was being passed to get a hotspot pointer in the npcSupportOffsetConditional method, resulting in a null pointer error
