Unable to reproduce this here.

As the error message says, the game's RESOURCE.000 file is most likely corrupted. Try copying it from the original disk and see if this fixes things

It doesn't fix it. I managed to disable music and see if it works, but with no success. Then I turned on music again, and now, I don't know why, I can see Roger Wilco coming into the first room... BUT this is what I get, just before game crashes.

scummvm: engines / sci / resource.cpp: 997: void Sci:: ResourceManager:: unlockResource (Sci:: Resource *): Assertion 'res' failed. Canceled

What's happening?

Which version of SQ1VGA is this? Check inside the VERSION file What language is it?

comment:6 by SF/nadersith, 14 years ago

This is what I get:

2.000 02.22.93 Space Quest 1 - Spanish Disk 1

This sound is the door opening sound. Can you please provide the size of your RESOURCE.000 file? It does look like the file is damaged... thus there isn't much we can do about it, I'm afraid

This Tracker item was closed automatically by the system. It was previously set to a Pending status, and the original submitter did not respond within 14 days (the time period specified by the administrator of this Tracker).

I'm not the original submitter, but I found the same problem. And it works fine with DosBox.

The RESOURCE.000 file is 970657 bytes long, and its md5sum (complete, not just the first bytes) is:


It may be corrupted, as it's from a downloaded copy. I have the floppies, but I don't know if they are still readable, and I have no easy to use floppy drive at the moment. I'll try to read them one of these days, maybe next week.

comment:13 by SF/jellby, 11 years ago

OK, I could read at least some of the floppies. The RESOURCE.000 file is indeed different, and this one works fine. Its md5 checksum is:


Still, the original interpreter does not crash with the wrong file (in DosBox)
