#6008 new defect

DC: FT/Dig - Crash when subtitles are enabled

Reported by: (none) Owned by: zeldin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Keywords: dreamcast Cc:
Game: Full Throttle

Description

ScummVM 1.4.1 Dreamcast port
English, talkie

When you enable subtitles in both of these games, they eventually crash at the moment when a new subtitle would be displayed (i.e., between lines of text). The games seem to run fine without subtitles from what I've seen.

From http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Dreamcast:
"The Dreamcast has no external storage medium, and only has 16MB of RAM. As such, the Dreamcast port of ScummVM does not support The Curse of Monkey Island, nor the Dig. The resources required for these games are too great for the Dreamcast to handle. Full Throttle is not completable. Every other game supported by ScummVM should be completable with the Dreamcast port."

i.e. This crash is probably an Out of Memory issue.

Though the fact it seems to work fine without subtitles, might warrant some investigation in the SCUMM engine to see if there is a memory leak in subtitle resource/text loading which may be causing this.
