FREDDI2: assert() error

Reported by: BenCastricum Owned by: BenCastricum

Cc: Game: Freddi Fish 2


When you give a purple sea urchin to Barnacle Bob without talking to him first I get an assert error (see attached screenshot). This is with the dutch version on Windows 7, I compiled it myself with mscv10.

Saved game right before the assert(). Just give the urchin to Bob. You can skip the dialog and trigger it immediately.

I also checked if the original game has a problem with this too (using a vmware emulated windows XP) situation too, but it plays fine.

I can reproduce with freddi2-nl on master:

scummvm: engines/scumm/object.cpp:113: void Scumm::ScummEngine::setOwnerOf(int, int): Assertion `obj > 0' failed.

I can reproduce with my English version as well, but only (?) if I carry just one sea urchin. The first time I tried it, I had four and everything worked as expected. I'm attaching a savegame from right outside the emporium.

Bug is in room 39. Problem is script 18, in the localvar2==78 case; this only sets the obj id if var198 is non-zero, but in the asserting case, it is obj 0. That means two setOwnerOf calls are made with obj 0.

Adding a workaround to just ignore the obj==0 calls in this circumstance seems like it would work fine (there's already one in the code here), but I'm not sure what to check for this (room ID and var198 being zero?). The correct setOwnerOf calls are made afterwards, so this seems to work just fine.

This seems to work for me if I insert it at line 113 of object.cpp. But it's a different script number than you have found. Which version of FF2 uses script 18? The ones I tried (mostly from Steam) all use 10.

if ( == GID_HEGAME && obj == 0 && vm.slot[_currentScript].number == 10)

The above patch went into master, I playtested it again and it solves my issue. If you ask me this bug can be closed.
