Daily snapshots of ScummVM now crash when loading games.

Post by CaptainJei » Sun Nov 26, 2017 12:04 am

Whenever I try to load any game with the current daily snapshot of the Windows version of ScummVM the program crashes with the message "http://www.scummvm.org/ has stopped working"

This doesn't happen with stable version 1.9.0.2

Is anyone else having this problem?

Which daily snapshot are you using? The one from Kirben (available from our download page) or the one from Buildbot?

Both work fine for me on my Windows 10 VM.

Are you by any chance using the MT-32 emulator? Could you have encountered this bug: https://bugs.scummvm.org/ticket/10332?

In any cases I have just reverted a change that seemed to cause crashes on Windows for some users, so you might want to try again with the next daily build (and please let us know if the crash still occurs).

The new snapshot seems to have solved the problem. Thanks!

I was using the MT-32 emulator on games that supported it, but ScummVM would crash no matter what game I tried. It also crashed if I tried to exit the GUI.
