Black thumbnails also appear in the Windows/English versions of:

  • Dead City
  • The Kite
  • The White Chamber

run on ScummVM 1.9.0git6805-g1d816d6 (Sep 23 2016 04:19:58)

On the positive side, I do get the correct picture thumbnails on :

  • all 8 Carol Reed mysteries
  • 5 Magical Amulets, 5 Lethal Demons
  • Dirty Split
  • Pigeons in the Park
  • Helga Deep In Trouble (the only one I haven't completed)

Resolution: fixed
Status: newpending

I guess what most of the problem games might have in common, is the lack of thumbnail-based save/load in-game, at least Dead City never set a thumbnail-size, which led to the engine-default of 0 being used. I've now changed the engine-default so that we should get thumbnails for most games hopefully. (But this might not necessarily give perfect results in all cases)

Would you mind retesting with a new version? (Old saves will not have thumbs as they were never stored into the savegame, but subsequent saves should get them)

Checked with a fresh build and (thanks to albadross for the other games)
Rosemary
Dead City
and The Kite
are fixed.

Carol Reed 4 i can't check as i don't have that, then again in albadross' summary the game is marked as not affected (see above "All 8 Carol Reed mysteries have the correct thumbnail picture"), so i guess it was a mistake that this save state was added(?)

In any way for me it's fixed

Thanks a lot somaen

I have confirmed the fix by re-saving the games on the latest Windows build and the thumbnails now show.

Other Wintermute games which exhibited the same problem but are also fixed :
Escape from the Mansion
The White Chamber

Corrosion: Cold Winter waiting has still the issue of save thumbnails being black

comment:7 Changed 2 years ago by albadross

My Corrosion thumbnails are OK - ScummVM 1.10.0git215-gd09c49f (Oct 8 2016 05:17:20).

I have attached a png showing this.

I have completed the game in the last couple of days and the thumbnails show throughout (all 97 of them!)

I believe you, but as you were writing here:
http://forums.scummvm.org/viewtopic.php?t=13062&start=68

you are using the enhanced edition which may be why it's fixed for you.

I only have the normal edition you can't buy anymore

I wonder if i should enter a new bug item?
Devs?

I can reproduce this with current master, Corrosion savegames created via the in-game save dialog are still black.

bonki: There is apparently a demo for this game, but I can't locate a working link online for this. If that is available, then hopefully could replicate with that and investigate so this bug can get closed out...

@digitall

I'm not sure about that there actually exists a demo version...it rather looks like as if some "demo" exe's implements a 20-30 minute timer until the game stops, but with a fully playable .dcp (at least thats what i think when i checked one of those "demos").
The .dcp is marginally smaller than the one i got with my download code (might be a newer/older version though).
