Today I thought I would play through Grim Fandango with the latest unstable release, and I found that the game crashed straight after talking to Celso at the end of year 1. I know that in previous releases ResidualVM has allowed progression further than this, so I thought I would point it out in case it wasn't known. I could of course report it as a bug if required, but I felt that I should check whether others were experiencing the same problem as me first. This is the Windows build from January the 29th that I am referring to. (Running on Windows 7)

The error shown in the console when the crash occurs is:
Code:
Expected 'section: header', got EOF
I assume it is something to do with the disc swap, so I should probably clarify that I have all the required files from both of my discs (as listed on the Datafiles wiki page) in one folder on my hard drive. I wrote the guide on the ScummVM forums for running multi-disc games. ;)

It seems that I am able to use jump targets to jump directly into points of year 2, so I assume that means it isn't a problem with year 2 itself.

I can't quite remember, in the original version would it ask for disc 2 to be entered before or after the game shows Manny mopping the floor? The game is crashing for me before it shows that video, so, if the answer is after, it must not be a disc change problem at all!

EDIT: It seems that I can't jump to the meadow exterior without it crashing, and can't switch to the meadow scene "me", but I can go to the meadow scene "mf", which is just Manny stuck running around a bed of flowers.

Can you jump to the set cb without it crashing?

Does the crash in me also show that error?

Set cb works perfectly. It also seems that the error with set "me" is actually:
Code:
WARNING: Could not find bitmap me_4_ovrhd.bm!
WARNING: Could not find bitmap me_4_ovrhd.zbm!
invalid magic loading texture!
For "mf" the errors:
Code:
WARNING: Could not find bitmap mf_1_ovrhd.bm!
WARNING: Could not find bitmap mf_1_ovrhd.zbm!
Show up, but a crash doesn't occur, and as previously stated it allows Manny to run about a flower bed in the meadow.

Those "Could not find bitmap" warnings are not a problem, i should silent them.

Can you reproduce the crash everytime at the end of year1? At what time precisely? When celso goes away, after the cutscene, ...?

Also, can you open two bug reports, one per crash?

The crash happens just after Celso finishes saying "You take over my job here."

Sure, I will add the two bug reports now!

EDIT: Also, yes, this can be reproduced every time I give Celso the book at the end of year 1.
