#6 closed defect (fixed)

Game enters an infinite loop

If you examine pieces of map in MI2, you cannot return to normal game screen, you can just move mouse. I have a savegame, if it can help

On further inspection, it has something to do with RommOpcode 9, and Save/loading.

comment:2 by SF/strigeus, 22 years ago

This is because monkey 2 uses a "dirty trick" in that scene. The game is saved right before entering the map, and when the user wants to leave the map, the game is reloaded. Because scummvm doesn't handle saving/loading identical to monkey 2, it won't work.

Mmmmmh, I tought so... BTW it happens also in Fate of Atlantis

Mmmm That's not much of a "dirty" trick since both Mi2, Atlantis and even DOTT uses it. I guess it could be managed by making 2 save/load system: one for user saves and one for system saves. That would prevent the game to corrupt the user saves by overwritting them with system saves inside the infinite loop.

I also suggest to use the game exe_name as prefix for savefiles. Qn exemple with Dott would make the user saves names tentacle.uXX and system save tentacle.sXX

Maybe system savegames should be temporary, so user doesn't see them.
