#7974 closed patch (wontfix)

Declaration Bug in Script_v1.cpp

Reported by: (none) Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Monkey Island 1


I just played Monkey Island 1 when, but unfortunately it crashed when Guybrush trys to get the idol from gov. Marleys home.

I get the following error message:

WARNING: New name of object 930 too long (old *gefhrliches Lama@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@* new *wahnsinnig gefhrliches Lama*)

The reason I found was in script_v1.cpp line 2173:

size = getResourceDataSize(name);

size is declared as int, where getResourceDataSize(name) returns unsigned int.

The following patch should solve the problem:

I am transfering this to the Patch Tracker. Please don't enter patches into the bug tracker :) You should also register a SourceForge account.

Anyway, this still does not make any sense to me. What are the exact new and old size values you are getting in this instance?

I cannot see any reason why the unsigned/signed typecast would matter, unless something else is seriously wrong...

This patch is indeed not correct, but rather is an incorrect workaround for a real ugly problem. However, I have a clear idea as to what is causing the problem, and how to fix the issue.
