This bug is reproduced with: ScummVM 0.2.7 CVS Built on Nov 6 2002 01:19:31

Does it crash with a particular error message?

If not, could you provide a stack trace? to do so, first start gdb with scummvm:

gdb scummvm

Then in gdb, enter this command: run OPTIONS where OPTIONS is any options you normally would pass to scummvm. Then once the game crashes, you can type this command bt which will generate a backtrace. Copy that to a file and attach it to teh bug report. Thanks!

This is what gdb gives me, not very helpful i guess...

When you "floppy version", do you mean it is monkeyvga? For the records, my version of monkeyvga/mac/german doesn't have this problem with current CVS. Are you using a save game or are you starting a game from scratch to reproduce this bug?

comment:5 by SF/impcat, 21 years ago

It is not monkeyvga, I use game description "monkey1" to start it. It has been restored from hard disk backup. The files are called monkey1.000 and monkey1.001, is this some kind of strange version?

comment:6 by fingolfin, 21 years ago

It is some kind of strange version, yeah, but that is no excuse for it to crash of course :-)

Can't reproduce any crash with my "normal" version ('monkey' with monkey.000 and monkey.001).

But we have been seeing some strange errors with memory corruption recently, maybe you are simply hitting this problem...

Any idea Ender? If not I suggest closing this as WORKSFORME.

Sounds simply that the files are corrupt.

Closing - sorry, if the crash doesn't happen for any of us, it's kind of hard to find the cause and fix it :)
