Elvira 1 Amiga Version keeps crashing

Post by losparasitos »

Hello All!

I tried to play the Amiga version of Elvira - Mistress of Dark. The game crashes always when you go into the castle and the Captain of Guards talks to you.

On Linux I get this error (windows client just crashes):

Code: Select all

scummvm&#58; ./sound/mods/paula.h&#58;108&#58; void Audio&#58;&#58;Paula&#58;&#58;setChannelData&#40;uint8, const int8*, const int8*, uint32, uint32, int32&#41;&#58; Assertion `0 <= offset && offset < 32768' failed.
Does anyone know how to solve this issue?
(Scummvm0.11.0)

I had to use the Version from the Tosec Collection because my discs got erased/broken by magnetism...

In that case I guess forum rule #0 applies? (I doubt that has been freewared)

Providing support for obviously "warezed" versions of games could create the impression that ScummVM promotes copyright violations.
Okay than iam sorry for asking but the version I used worked in Vice so I guessed it could be a bug with Scummvm and the Amiga Version of Elvira1 in general.Maybe someone can tell if the Amiga Version works or doesn`t.

EDIT:
Well i`ve read the backside of the game manual (freely translated from german to english):
Would you like to create a Backup?
Sure you don`t want that your original discs get broken, so please backup your game. Contact your computer manual for instructions to do so.

Accolade grants a 90 day warranty on the discs...
So if iam right I may use a copy of Elvira1 if I do not bypass the copyprotection or am I totally wrong?

I think it means you have to make the backups of your own media yourself before they break, not download them afterwards off the net.

Then again, I'm not a lawyer.

You`re right but what one has to concider is that the typical lifespan of a floppy-disk is 5 years up to 30 if stored in anti-magnetic plastic-case not to hot/could/dusty/smokey. I even got my disks in an anti magnetic plastic bag (last 5 years).

I think I contact the Adventuresoft support and ask them.

Does someone know a contact address?

I was not able to contact someone from Adventure Soft but I got my self a new copy on eb*y. I still get the Errors I mentioned above, I found out that the so called 'missing files' do not exist at least not on my german Elvira1 Disks.

I think I will open a ticket in the Bugtracker because I might have a hint where the error occures.

Can some please verify the md5sums of my copy of german Elvira - Mistress of the Dark?
