Also the same crash after robbery in louis flat and after taking sneakers. I removed workaround, because it corrupts the game state. Still investingating :)

This is the assert added in d413494f5b0485008bbc6074fca07bb00f448c40.

If it's caused by replacing a rep movsb by a memcpy, shouldn't we then just not be using memcpy for overlapping regions there? (But a simple loop instead?)

comment:5 by SF/megath, 13 years ago

I guess it's a bug, removing assert or replacing with movsb() corrupts game state and sometime trashes inventory. I'm not 100% sure though.

comment:6 by SF/megath, 13 years ago

hmmm, wjp, I guess you're right. I disabled memcpy for overlapping regions and louis and this key crash does not reproduce! Thank you. I'll commit the fix right away

Please update!

Resolution: fixed

comment:9 by eriktorbjorn, 13 years ago

Maybe I'm missing something obvious but if the problem is overlapping memory areas, couldn't we just change memcpy() to memmove()?

comment:10 by wjp, 13 years ago

That would probably work in all actually used cases, but a rep movsb isn't always equivalent to a memmove. (Not when copying forward with overlap.)

Yes, di/si register wrap at 0x10000.
