DW2: Hangs when giving brochure to the beekeeper
|Reported by:||SF/rdp837||Owned by:||dreammaster|
When running the English CD version of Discworld II through svn ScummVM (Mar 10 2009) on 64bit Vista the game frequently hangs (well it refuses to accept any input but the music and animation still play) just after the ding noise plays when giving the Clicky Brochure to the beekeeper. I did manage to get the game to play through once in about 9 attempts. I've attached a saved game from just before the problem.

I can reproduce this on my 32-bit Linux box. As you say, it doesn't happen every time but so far it's two times out of three.
I'm not familiar enough with the Tinsel engine to even hazard a guess, though.

Ditto Mac OS 10.5.6 with a 32-bit PPC processor...sort of. I played through DW2 three when big endian issues were causing major problems and never ran into this even once. That made me think this is a new problem so I started a new game, ran to Dibbler to get the brochure and back to the garden, saved, and then repeatedly gave the brochure to the beekeeper and never once was there a problem. I did the same thing on my 32-bit Linux machine and same thing: with a brand-new game, no problem. But when I use attached saved game, the problem happens practically every time on both machines.

As per the meddlingmonk's test I tried to crash using a new game and just getting the brochure and giving it to the bee keeper with all other settings and build the same as in my first post. The game didn't crash in 7 attempts. It seems likely that doing another event before giving the Beekeeper the brochure is a factor in the crash. I'll see if I can cause a crash with the new game.

What is the status of this item?

I've been able to replicate the problem with the attached savegame. Since it isn't occuring with new savegames, I'm not sure if the bad savegame is the result of a prior bug which is now fixed or not. I'll spend some time comparing execution of the action using both savegames to see if I can at least track down where the difference occurs.
