Sam and Max unrecoverable error

Post by fu-raz »

Hey all,

I've been browsing around the forum and I haven't come across this error on Sam and Max. I have seen other games producing errors like this in the 0.9 pre release. I'm using the PocketPC 0.9.0 version.

This Sam and Max is an MP3 encoded one. It shows me the LucasArts logo and then craps out with an "Unrecoverable error".

Here's the log

Code: Select all

Is there anything I can do? Does it have to do with the MP3 encoding? Thanks in advance,

Looks like elmuerte had the same problem with Indy4. I converted the monster.sou file to FLAC and now everything works perfectly. I think there's a problem with the MP3 thingies in the ScummVM port to the PocketPC.

The crash is indeed inside the mp3 decoding lib, but the issue is more complex. It is under investigation, thank you for reporting.

same happens to me - and also for another game I don't remember which... I'll get back to you later with more info

0.9.0 looks nicer but is less stable than 0.8.X

I use monster.so3 in Full Throttle and the game still gives me the same error. Either somewhere in the videos or in the game itself (in the same places), well, I can't exit the first location (garbage), the game crashes long before I try... But after I kick out the bin's top and jump out.
