#4343 closed defect (fixed)

Automatic savegame fails if directory not present

Reported by: SF/lblume Owned by: wjp
Priority: high Component: Engine: SCUMM

Game: Monkey Island 1

Description

A very minor bug, it seems, on ScummVM 0.13.1:
on starting The Secret of Monkey Island for the first time on a new user, I let the window unattended for a few minutes.
Then I saw a pop up saying: "Failed to save game state to file: monkey.s00".
And I checked that ~/.scummvm doesn't exist. If I do a manual save, then the directory is created, and automatic savegames work afterwards.

What OS are you using?

Missing the obvious, sorry :-/

It's the Solaris 10 x86 build, running on OpenSolaris 2009.06 rc.

This bug is nice to get fixed before the release. Raising priority for keeping the track.

The directory was actually already created when autosaving, but the save function failed to notice the directory was created because its non-existance was cached. Thanks for reporting this bug; it should be fixed now.
