COMI: SCUMMVM exits with error before start

Reported by: SF/szelessz Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Monkey Island 3


I installed SCUMMVM 0.12 on WINXP English SP3. Added the game COMI, and when I press Start, then the following error message appears in the command line:

User picked target 'comi' (gameid 'comi')... Looking for a plugin supporting this gameid... Scumm Engine Starting 'The Curse of Monkey Island' Assertion failed: isspace(*ptr), file engines/scumm/string.cpp, line 1408

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.

That message would indicate that your file is damaged somehow... Try recopying it from your CD, does that help?

Good then :-). I guess it would be nice if we displayed an error instead of crashing when encountering bad data files. Maybe one day...
