DOSBox SVN bug: Lemmings and Oh No! More Lemmings crashes after finishing a level and wanting to continue

Postby olddos25 » 2018-10-13 @ 16:37

Well, I encountered this bug recently. In Lemmings and Oh No! More Lemmings (using the CD version BTW) when you finish a level, you have the option to continue to the next level or to return to the title screen. If I choose to be taken to the title screen, I go to it, and then the game hangs.
If I choose to continue to the next level, it still takes me back to the title screen to then hang! Newer versions are supposed to solve problems, not originate new ones! Because I then tried with the 0.74-2 release and that doesn't happen. Can it get fixed? Thanks beforehand!

I think if you click the mouse again or press Esc or some other key on the keyboard it might unfreeze.

Tried those things to no avail. It just doesn't respond to anything, neither keyboard buttons or mouse buttons.

do you use the same sdl.dll with both versions ?
Some SDL.dll versions generate extra mouse button press events, which lemmings doesn't like.
Not sure if this is the case for your problem though

Nope. Neither with DOSBox 0.74-2 or DOSBox SVN. The thing is, I originally discovered this problem in DOSBox ECE. And I said to myself, "maybe the patches are causing problems". And the rest is history.

Update: I recently discovered that when I press the right mouse button with the title screen locked up, it unfreezes for some reason. And then I can continue to the next level like normal. That's neat, but a little strange...

and how does it behave if you use the sdl.dll from 0.74-2 with it ?
