Day Of The Tentacle crashes on my Tungsten T5

Post by Jayknight » Mon Dec 04, 2006 3:20 pm

Hi all,
I don't know if this is a bugreport or not, so i'll put it anyway and if it is, let me know.

(SPOILER INSIDE)

So i've been playing with Day of the tentacle for a week now, been progressing a lot in the game, but it never fails, whenever i want to wash the car outside the mansion with Hoagie, the palm freezes badly.

Another place where it always freezes : with Laverne, i have my tentacle costume, and i want to go in the "Jury only room", and boom, it freezes with the sreen going awkward, like with the car incident.

And on other occasions the palm just freezes at any time, when i do a simple action, like entering a room. On those times i reboot the palm and i can resume playing. But it does not work with the car washing freeze, as it always freezes ...

Thanks for any possible help on this !


By the way, some info :
I play with the french version of the game.

I tried disabling the cache but it didn't work, as pushing it to 20kb.


I use a 1Gb card.

Memory free / total :
Dynamic : 3430 / 4096
Storage : 34162 / 65386
Stack size : - / 3

probably same as viewtopic.php?t=2617&highlight=scroll+bug

I think the screen scrolls in all the instances you mentioned

I get the same crashes on my Zodiac. Since I was as far as I could go with DOTT, I installed Sam&Max and get a crash there too--as soon as you get to the diner at the top of the Ball of Twine.

Does the new test/WIP version fix these problems?

Nope.
I think the only way is to copy the save game on a pc and go in the room this way, save and put the save data back on the palm ...

I try the last version for palm os5 on your site on my palm T|X. it was label scummvm-0.10.0svn-palmos-os5.zip. i did a clean install. I remove evrything on the SD card and palm. i just leave the game and the saves.

In fact, it was worst.

- None of the Hard button function anymore except the one use to switch wide/normal. But it is buggy, it don't rotate the screen. You can't switch back to normal.
- The music is slower and it cut every seconds
- I couldn't load my save game to try see if the bug in DOTT was still there.

I use the default parameters and try many other but i couldn't make it work properly. Now i switch back to the 0.91 version and i play an other game.

I am ready to try any news version svn if you need it

I'll make a new version with auto rotation and bring back the old wide scaler. Also I'll try to fix the keys (try because I don't have a standard palm to test, sorry)

I understand that you can't buy every model of palm. If you need i can try every version you want. I have seen that it is possible to can write debug message. If you want i can send you them back.

I see that you leave in France and me too. We could continue this dialog in french. it will be easier for me :lol:
I can PM my mail if you need it.

edit:
I also have a palm T3

I'm having exactly the same problem, in two games (so far):

- Sam and Max, when they go up to a giant ball of wool
- Monkey Island 2, in two places: when going to cliff, and when diving.

I'm running ScummVM 0.9.1 on Palm Treo 680.

Should I be patient and wait for a fix?
