Jinx1337: Thank you for the bug report. In order to progress this, could you provide the following information: * ScummVM Version (1.3.1?). If this was a v1.4.0pre daily build, please provide full version. * Operating System * Exact Version of Game. For SCI games, this is usually found in the VERSION file or by using the menu bar for information. (This would be prior to patching, if you could also provide a link to the patch you used as well)

Also, could you please attach a savegame to allow replication? And finally, if you used v1.3.1 (stable), could you try a v1.4.0pre daily build (development) to see if this bug has already been fixed in the development builds:

OK, a little investigation prework for the SCI engine devs:

The error message in the attached screencapture is: "ERROR: Invalid arithmetic operation (params: 002a:0007 and 0000:ffff) from method ::export 2 (room 220, script 2 ffffff)!"

Checking in engines/sci/engine/workarounds.cpp, there is not currently a workaround for this, so this is probably another buggy script in the original.

Need a savegame to test this, as it's a script bug, and if a workaround is added without testing it, it can lead to more problems than the ones it actually solves

Please attach a saved game, as I can't reproduce this. Marking as "pending".

Thank you.

There has been no activity on this tracker item for more than 5 months. Closing because of lack of information (and this should have been done automatically - odd)
