[09:04:23] <lynxlynxlynx> heh, our old cvs repo is still online on sf
[09:05:15] <DrMcCoy> and it now includes malware? ;)
[09:07:36] <lynxlynxlynx> nah, they only do that with packaged stuff

[11:59:43] <lynxlynxlynx> http://paste.debian.net/289695 <-- can anyone make sense of this? It's the pst area anim crash
[11:59:44] <Pepelka> debian Pastezone
[12:00:10] <lynxlynxlynx> ::Covers only does int comparisons btw and valgrind isn't helpful
[12:02:37] <wjp> anim->NextFrame() returning 0x12?
[12:04:20] <wjp> what is anim->pos?
[12:04:35] <lynxlynxlynx> 17
[12:05:02] <lynxlynxlynx> the first frame assignment was ok, otherwise the Covers call would crash
[12:05:29] <wjp> and anim->playReversed ?
[12:05:38] <lynxlynxlynx> false
[12:06:07] <wjp> hrm
[12:06:14] <wjp> is this crash easy to reproduce?
[12:06:53] <lynxlynxlynx> yes
[12:07:08] <lynxlynxlynx> it was first found about two years ago
[12:07:47] <lynxlynxlynx> so, pst, open the console: mta("ar0502")
[12:08:10] <lynxlynxlynx> you'll probably end up in a safe part
[12:08:31] <lynxlynxlynx> then go explore the center, where some molten metal bowls are
[12:08:56] <lynxlynxlynx> or you can just disable fog of war in the gemrb config, so it crashes instantly
[12:09:39] <lynxlynxlynx> do you think it could be a compiler issue?
[12:10:00] <lynxlynxlynx> i always get the same bad pointer too
[12:10:35] <wjp> well, 0x12 is the size of that array
[12:10:53] <wjp> probably that is stored somewhere around the actual frames
[12:11:04] <wjp> maybe frames[-1] or frames[18] or so
[12:11:30] <lynxlynxlynx> with fog of war on, i get a different value
[12:12:03] <wjp> interesting
[12:12:09] <wjp> anyway, I just got the crash too
[12:12:21] <wjp> with a bogus (non-0x12) spr value too
[12:13:39] <wjp> ugh, gemrb doesn't seem to like my saves from the original PST
[12:14:39] <lynxlynxlynx> btw, both -1 (eq) and 18 point to 0 here
[12:14:54] <wjp> pos is 233 for me
[12:15:04] <wjp> (right before the offending NextFrame call)
[12:16:29] <wjp> AFAICT that's the first NextFrame call on that specific anim
[12:24:34] <wjp> hrm
[12:25:23] <lynxlynxlynx> i'll retry with valgrind
[12:26:20] <wjp> pos is initialized correctly
[12:26:29] <wjp> and the object is not destructed it seems
[12:29:56] <lynxlynxlynx> new invalid reads found near
[12:30:58] <lynxlynxlynx> one is at sdlvideo.cpp 585, reading just after what ComputeTrapezoids created
[12:32:04] <lynxlynxlynx> then a larger invalid read at SDLSurfaceSprite2d::GetSprite
[12:32:23] <lynxlynxlynx> and then finally sdlvideo.cpp 587 reads in the bad value
[12:32:43] <lynxlynxlynx> *tries to read the bad value
[12:37:14] <wjp> pos is getting set by AreaAnimation::GetAnimationPiece
[12:42:29] <wjp> so it might be coming straight from AREImporter?
[12:42:50] <lynxlynxlynx> sure
[12:43:11] <lynxlynxlynx> i'm mostly confused on how it can happen at all
[12:43:52] <wjp> AREImporter reads AreaAnimation::frame from file, AreaAnimation::InitAnimation sets Animation::pos to AreaAnimation::frame without checking if it's a valid pos
[12:44:23] <lynxlynxlynx> but why didn't it crash sooner?
[12:45:00] <wjp> when?
[12:45:36] <lynxlynxlynx> a few lines before, when using frame->x and co
[12:45:47] <wjp> it doesn't get there
[12:45:54] <wjp> covers[ac] is false the first frame
[12:46:02] <wjp> (well, 0)
[12:48:17] <lynxlynxlynx> the first frame is at pos 17 or is that just a result of some ceiling check?
[12:49:24] <wjp> the _second_ frame is at pos 17 due to a ceiling check
[12:49:33] <wjp> (NextFrame() updates pos)
[12:50:16] <lynxlynxlynx> ok, makes sense now
[12:53:49] <wjp> this would be a good excuse to make some more members of Animation private
[12:55:13] <lynxlynxlynx> go ahead :)
[12:55:22] <lynxlynxlynx> thanks btw, yer a wizard
[12:58:17] <wjp> watchpoints are nice :-)
[15:21:42] <xrogaan> hay guys
[15:22:16] <xrogaan> since you work a lot on gemrb, do you see an use for tools like travis-ci ?
[15:28:56] <-- GeneralDuke has left IRC (Quit: GeneralDuke)
[15:33:37] <lynxlynxlynx> our buildbot run our minimal test on each build
[15:34:01] <lynxlynxlynx> most stuff in gemrb does not lend itself for easy automated testing though
[15:40:35] <xrogaan> You have to write the tests though
[15:41:23] <xrogaan> also, travis-ci (and other ci thingies) integrate well with github. Especially on pull requests, they tells if the pull request will actually build. Which is nice.
[15:50:53] <lynxlynxlynx> *to
[15:51:10] <lynxlynxlynx> yes, ci is nice

[20:02:01] <lynxlynxlynx> oh, i forgot to mention earlier - my experience with watchpoints is mixed
[20:03:17] <lynxlynxlynx> yesterday i was looking at why we mangle pst area notes on save (only one letter remains) and adding a watchpoint just made gdb cry
[20:03:55] <lynxlynxlynx> almost looked like everything froze, but the audio thread kept spamming

[21:13:46] <ebarrett> lynxlynxlynx: hey
[21:14:11] <ebarrett> so i can confirm that the autopause on enemy sighted thing jumps to the wrong area of the map
[21:14:31] <ebarrett> also, it seems in bg1 you cant see how much long drink names cost
[21:15:00] <ebarrett> and im seeing a crash sometimes happen immediately after autosave, will run with gdb next time to give a proper report
[21:15:14] <ebarrett> luckily the save works even if it crashes
[21:19:15] <lynxlynxlynx> odd
[21:19:29] <lynxlynxlynx> the drinking bit is a known regression though
[21:20:11] <lynxlynxlynx> it would be nice if you came up with a reproducable way to trigger off-centering
[21:20:28] <lynxlynxlynx> btw, i suggest you just use git head now, it has some good stuff for bg1 too
[21:20:39] <ebarrett> oh that was another, autosave moves the camera
[21:20:52] <ebarrett> lynxlynxlynx: ok, will try git head at some point
[21:24:10] <lynxlynxlynx> saving has no connection to camera
[21:24:25] <lynxlynxlynx> but it can happen during cutscenes, where things move around
[21:25:25] <ebarrett> i just pressed q and the camera jumped
[21:32:16] <lynxlynxlynx> works as expected for me
[21:33:18] <lynxlynxlynx> ah, but i see what you mean, if you're on the right border it jumps the window width
[21:33:36] <lynxlynxlynx> silly
[22:12:29] <Pepelka> [commit] lynxlynxlynx: gemact.ids: added TriggerWalkTo, as only bg2 has it, but we use it everywhere https://github.com/gemrb/gemrb/commit/ccb7ed349cfa6b0cf69f5653056193b710795585
[22:12:30] <Pepelka> [commit] lynxlynxlynx: HandleActiveRegion: added a modified version of chiv's hack for ip dialogs https://github.com/gemrb/gemrb/commit/bcc820b10be2b10f47b06f1f99d0f8a960dcbf2b
