I'm having problem with Residualvm crashing all the time (about every 5 min) when playing Grim Fandango.
It's (almost) not playable some times.

I have a Macbook pro with Snow leopard 10.6.8
Game is patched.

Has anyone else experienced the same?
Any tips on fixing this?

Thanks for this awesome program! I've been longing to play this game for years!

Please open a bug report on github about this, with the console output and, if possible, a backtrace.

Also, we need to know the revision of the build, if it's precompiled or if you built it yourself, and the grim language.

I'm not really sure what that means ;-S

But a bug report in the issue list i guess?
From where do i get the console output, crash report in mac os? and how do i get a backtrace?

Sorry for stupid questions :) But if you don't ask..you'll never know.

Yes

Well, you get the output by running residualvm from the console. Open a terminal and type "residualvm".
For the backtrace i unfortunately don't know, since i don't have a mac.

giucam: gcc and gdb here too, just like on linux. :D

To get a backtrace, you'll need to have XCode installed (developer.apple.com, requires free registration), then run ResidualVM through gdb by typing "gdb residualvm" in terminal, followed by "run". Then, when it crashes, type "bt", copy the output, and give it to us.

Thanks for all the help! Really appreciate it!

I'm sorry, but I have no experience of the terminal whatsoever.
Except from some old MsDOS-skills from the ninties :)

Where do i type "residualvm" in the terminal?
I just get: -bash: residualvm: command not found

I tried to type it in the applications folder where residualvm is located but got the same message.
Do I need some sort of command with it as well?

When I tried running it through gdb, i only get:
"GNU gdb 6.3.50-20050815 (Apple version gdb-1515) (Sat Jan 15 08:33:48 UTC 2011)

I guess I'm missing something really obvious here??? :)

Ooops, a tad of missing information in that previous post, if you downloaded our precompiled version, and put it directly in the Applications-folder, the following should get you rolling:
type:
cd /Applications/ResidualVM.app/Contents/MacOS
gdb residualvm

Setting autosave (Options -> Misc) to never seems to have reduced the crashes somewhat for me.
