#5068 closed defect (fixed)

SQ5: Game crash during scrubbing

Reported by: SF/neosmagus Owned by: bluegr
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Space Quest 5


ScummVM: ScummVM 1.2.0svn51505 (Jul 30 2010 23:15:02) Language: English Floppy Version: 1997 Space Quest Collection CD (1.04) Platform: Windows XP

When trying to clean the rotunda, the game crashes. This doesn't always happen, and seems to be happening at random moments. It also seems to be occuring more in this SVN versions than earlier ones, but that might just be an artifact of the randomness. I had to try about 15 times to get past the section.

User picked target 'sq5' (gameid 'sci')... Looking for a plugin supporting this gameid... SCI Engine [SCI0, SCI01, SCI10, SCI11, SCI32] Starting 'Sierra SCI Game' Emulating SCI version SCI1.1

This bug seems to occur only when moving the machine with very short movements (by clicking the same spot several times in rapid succession). It may be possible to work around the bug by only sweeping with very broad strokes.

You seem to be right. I used your tip and managed to complete that section twice in a row with no game crash. Also helps to turn the speed all the way down, Roger won't bounce around as much, and you can clean nice straight lines.
