PS2 0.13.1 scummvm.ini file

Reported by: SF/junebug7556 Owned by: sunmax
Priority: normal Component: Port: PS2
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


ScummVM Version: 0.13.1 running on PS2 (Fat and Slim) with FMCB 1.8 Bug Details: ScummVm.ini file. There appears to be an issue with the writing of the configuration options. Upon running ScummVM.elf the first time, the green/black screen is correctly displayed to add games. After adding a game (Sword1) I can play the first 5 minutes. Upon restating the PS2, and running the ScummVM.elf file, the screen displays the 010101 helix, but then restarts to FMCB. I tried this numerous times - but ScummVM will not load. I then entered UlaunchElf and deleted the ScummVM.ini file and ran the scummVM.elf again. This time it loaded successfully. I added another game (Monkey1) and played it briefly. Restarted PS2 and tried to run ScummVM.elf again. Again, did not load and rebooted to FMCB.

I examined the scummvm.ini file and it had become corrupted with foreign text and replacing the square brackets [] for the option entries. As such all entires in the ini file had been corrupted.

Language: N/A Version: N/A Platform: PS2 (Fat and Slim) Bug: Version 0.12.0 did not have this bug.

It would be useful if you could attach one of the corrupted scummvm.ini files here for reference.

How do I add a file, please.

I have copies of the corrupted ini file - if I cannot attach here - should I create a new bug report and add it there?

I too have had this problem on a my old/fat PS2s. The corruption seems to be random - most of the time it will corrupt, but not always.

Tried three different MCs - 8MB Sony, 16MB Datel and a 64MB Chinese, no discernible difference.

Corruption also occured to the INI file on a USB device (i slightly modified the sources)
