#8478 closed patch

BS2: Alignment fix, I hope

Reported by: eriktorbjorn Owned by: eriktorbjorn

Cc: Game: Broken Sword 2


This patch is a rather extensive rewrite to get rid of the reported alignment issues in the Broken Sword 2 engine.

I'm currently in the process of testing BS2 with it, and have played my way to the warehouses in Marseille without problem. However, it would be nice if someone could try it on big-endian, because there is a good chance I've introduced endian regressions.

And of course, it would be good to know if it actually fixes the aforementioned alignment issues.

Uploaded an updated patch. The first one wouldn't compile on big-endian.

I've now reached the native village without noticing any regressions.

Tried the first few scenes, works just fine on 10.4.2. Also tested load/save and cutscenes all without problem.

Just tested the BS2 demo on zodiac 68k and ARM mode, seems to work very well :)

great job !

I'm committing this, then, since the initial reports indicate that I haven't completely broken things. It won't be included in 0.8.0, but I imagine there'll be plenty of time to deal with any remaining regressions before 0.9.0.
