PS2 0.13.1 scummvm.ini file
|Reported by:||SF/junebug7556||Owned by:||sunmax|
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.

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)

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