#6238 Mac Loom crashes using opening spell on gravestone

Loom Floppy

Loom for Mac crashes when trying to open a gravestone. I tested a build before sound support was added and the game does not crash. Loom is fully completable as opening a grave isn't actually useful.

Crash seen with:
ScummVM 1.6.0git2497-g93763ac (Jan 22 2013 04:29:23)
Features compiled in: TAINTED Vorbis FLAC MP3 SEQ TiMidity RGB zLib

Does not crash with:
ScummVM 1.5.0 (Jul 28 2012 04:40:00)
Features compiled in: Vorbis FLAC MP3 SEQ TiMidity RGB zLib

(Both precompiled downloads from scumvm.org)

Loom (English (US)/Macintosh)

Running on Mac OS X Version 10.6.8


  • Apparently there is more than one kind of sound/music resource in Mac Loom. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to play this sound, so I've worked around it by simply skipping sound resources that do not have the string "so" (song?) in the expected position. It's not ideal, of course, but much better than nothing.
