SCI Fanmade games: Savegames confusion

Reported by: SF/escarlate Owned by: SF/mthreepwood
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: SCI Fanmade


Some of the games are sharing savegames slots. If one of them tries to load the wrong savegame, created by a completely different game, it crashes. For example, Knight's Quest Demo and The Legend of the Lost Jewel Demo share slots.

I'm not sure what you mean here. Since they get detected with different id's, they should have different saves.

comment:2 by SF/escarlate, 14 years ago

I discovered what happened. Their ids receive an incremental number, so when I removed a one of the games, their saves appeared on the next one I added.

comment:3 by SF/escarlate, 14 years ago

Same problem happens with other games, like the King's Quest V CD and floppy version that share a base id, but have incompatible saves.

comment:4 by SF/escarlate, 14 years ago

I guess at least the major commercial versions should have a unique id (for example, KQ5CD for the CD version).

comment:5 by SF/mthreepwood, 14 years ago

Well, it shouldn't be crashing but reporting an error on the console. Do you get any such message?

comment:6 by SF/escarlate, 14 years ago

Yes, "This saved game was created with a different version of the game, unable to load it".

comment:7 by SF/escarlate, 14 years ago

But, in some games, it leads to a crash right after the message:

lookupSelector(): Attempt to send to non-object or invalid script. Address was 0000:0000!

comment:8 by SF/escarlate, 14 years ago

If I attempt restore a wrong savegame inside Cascade Quest, after the message it starts to behave in a weird manner, the cursor stops responding, etc.

Nothing we can really do about this. Closing as invalid.
