Problem mounting Monkey 1

Post by Isaac_A_Steiner » Tue Dec 13, 2005 5:14 pm

hi there,
Today (with the latest build) Itried to mount Mi1 - again.
But today, Scummvm exits with this message, once I chose the correct game folder
C:\ScummVM>scummvm.exe
Assertion failed: suffix < 'z', file gui/launcher.cpp, line 677

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unus
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

mounting any other game is no problem.

Is my system screwing up?

Regards,
Isaac

I forget to add: I'm talking 'bout the AMIGA version of Monkey.
It worked in the past...

Hm...

I don't have any problems to run my (V1.1) version of Monkey Amiga German....

Which version do you use?

Odd. As far as I can tell, that assertion can fail when adding a game to ScummVM. The first time you try to add Monkey Island 1, it will create a target named "monkey" for it in the configuration file. If that target already exists, it will try "monkeya", "monkeyb", etc. until it finds one that isn't already used. Once it gets past "monkeyz", it will give up.

So the question is: Do you really have 27 different versions of Monkey Island 1 added to your ScummVM config file, or did you manage to trigger that assertion in some other way? :shock:

BTW: Shouldn't it be "suffix <= 'z'" instead of "<" ? :?:
