MT 0.90.85, Windows 7, freezes while loading this file
« on: April 28, 2010, 19:26:47 »


File: http://aminet.net/mods/8voic/s3m_hunt.lha

freezes with infinite loop at:
.0046F3F3: 8BCF                         mov         ecx,edi
.0046F3F5: E816F2FFFF                   call       .00046E610
.0046F3FA: 807E1401                     cmp         byte ptr [esi+14],01
.0046F3FE: 74F3                         je         .00046F3F3

seems like cannot load samples, if interrupted saves backup.xm with patterns but no samples...
The file seems to be ok, at least VLC can play it.

this file is known to be somewhat troublesome. i suggest the milky author(s) to look at the xmp or openmpt sourcecode how to fix it (search for "s3m_hunt" in their loaders).

Another crash on load

cannot decode 4th pattern (at 0AAFh, MT thinks it starts at 0AB0h and has 1 byte length and crashes)

It's the same problem, so if some milky coder just applies the xmp fix, both problems will be solved.

I really wonder where all those incorrectly stored s3ms are coming from. I mean, they're basically corrupt because their way of storing the data is not s3m spec compliant. How can a pattern even start at an offset which is not a multiple of 16?

Ok I did some investigation with original ST3 and it seems that ST3 can't load these files either. I will make the S3M loader more robust so it will neither crash nor lockup in an infinite loop.
