The Feeble Files crash on Pocket Loox N500 (and BS 1+2, too)

Post by Adventureguy »

Hello,
I just tried to run the German 4CD Windows version of"The Feeble Files" (a.k.a "Floyd - Es gibt noch Helden" in Germany) with the 0.10.0 release of ScummVM on my Pocket PC.
When I try to start a new game, the Winasoft.dxa file starts to play, then suddenly freezes and ScummVM exits without any console appearing. Windows Mobile tells me then that there was a problem with scummvm.exe and suggests sending a bug report to Microsoft.
This is strange, Floyd works perfect on the ScummVM Windows version, I get the crash only on my PDA. I converted all videos to dxa, but I don't know why it's not working. Any ideas what's the problem of this?
Thanks!

The Feeble Files is uncharted territory for me. I didn't believe anyone would try it on a WinCE device. Well, now that I see you're interested, I'll test it out and fix it (if it needs fixing) in future builds.

Now that's weird. It doesn't just happen in Feeble Files, it's happening in Broken Sword 1+2 , too. Maybe it has something to do with dxa support on the WINCE build? I remember that previous builds before 0.10.0 run those dxa-cutscenes without any problems.

Well, it worked for me last time I tried. Why don't you run scummvm with the debug level raised in case you can notice any weird error messages. Alternatively => the bug tracker.
