EOB2: Crash when importing party from EOB1 savegame

Reported by: SF/truus999 Owned by: athrxx
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Kyra
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Eye of the Beholder 2

Description

After finishing EOB1 I wanted to import my party in eob2.
I choose transfer eob 1 party
The load game window pops up and in slot 1 I see eob
After choosing that I get a text window about defeating Xanathar and if I want to transfer my party
Clicking on yes shows my party members
I pick René Kiki, Boom and Fon
Clicking on OK gives the text about not all items being transferred
Clicking OK on that screen crashes the game.

MAYBE this is because several of my party memebers died during the fight with the beholder.

truus999: I have tried replicating with the latest nightly build and I can't replicate this.
Three questions:
1. What Operating System are you using?
2. The build you are using is from 1st December 2012. Please try replicating with the latest nightly build:
http://buildbot.scummvm.org/builds.html
3. This could be due to corrupted, missing or variant datafiles. Please could you attach a text file to this bug
containing a file listing of your EOB2 datafiles, preferably with file md5sums? The output of a tool such
as this: http://md5summer.org would be optimal.

Uploaded the MD5 files. The game comes from the forgotten realms sukver archive CD, and I'm on windows7 64 bits.

I've downloaded the latest builds for both 32 and 64 bits.
On the 32 birs version I get rthe same crash.
On the 64 bits version it will find the save file but after selecting it I get a text window telling me it caan't find any saved game files.

So different behaviour for both versions.

truus999: I have the same game version and have compared the datafile md5sums you have attached.

You are missing a significant proportion of the EOB2 datafiles (See attached listing of missing files), including the darkmoon.pak file which is probably the critical missing file.

If you run scummvm from command line, it will probably emit a error message of "Can't open file <x>" at the "crash".

Please clean your EOB2 data CDs and then try recopying the datafiles from the original media, and then see if these missing files are then present.

Thanks!! It's working now Sorry to have bothered you with my own mistake.

One small addition. The Darkmoon.pak file is missing from the datafiles entry on the wiki.

The DARKMOON.PAK file is completly ignored. We don't load any PAK files for EoB 2. In fact I don't even have it in my copy of the game. It would be nice to know about the contents of the file. Someone of you might want to extract the contents via our tools.

The command line for that should be:
scummvm-tools-cli --tool extract_kyra DARKMOON.PAK
and then make a md5sum of the extracted files and attach it here.

It might be worth noting that the *.OVL, LEVELS.TMP, *.EXE, *.BAT files are not necessary,

LordHoto: Will do and will send you a contents listing by e-mail.
