#3951 closed defect (fixed)

ANY: Failed assertion on invalid save path

Latest SVN snapshot

If I change the save path to point to an invalid directory, ScummVM fails an assertion when I try to save. I've tried it with the SCUMM engine, and earlier today with the Drascula engine, so I assume it affects all engines:

scummvm: common/fs.cpp:68: Common::FilesystemNode Common::FilesystemNode::getChild(const Common::String&) const: Assertion `_realNode->isDirectory()' failed.

Of course, you shouldn't be able to set an invalid save path in ScummVM, but it's quite possible that someone will set a valid save path, and then move that folder somewhere else.

So, we should modify the DefaultSaveManager to validate the savepath passed to it; and if it is invalid, return an error, instead of asserting out.

I think this bug is out of date by now. Torbjörn, can you still reproduce the issue, or can this be closed?

I wasn't able to trigger the assertion with the SCUMM engine or the Drascula engine. Drascula did terminate with a rather misleading "Can't open drascula.epa file!" message, but I guess that's a Drascula bug, not a file system bug.
