           Summary: empty screenshot thumbnail in load game dialog
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.57.
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: hoehle at users.sourceforge.net


some games display, in their "Load Saved Game" dialog, a list of
thumbnails of screenshots taken at the time of "Save Game".  For some
games, these screenshots are all blank (black).

This affects Syberia 2, among others.

I inspected the Syberia2 save game files. It contains, beside a few
strings, thousands of occurrences of the sequence 00 00 00 FF. This
made me believe that the application does not manage to create
the screenshot thumbnail during save, saves black pictures and
displays those in the load dialog. I.e. not Load is broken, Save is.
I replaced some of these 00 with FF and saw white lines appear in the Load
dialog, confirming this supposition.

I'm using wine 0.9.57 on Ubuntu Dapper & Gutsy, compiled myself. I don't know
whether the problem can be caused by a missing *-dev.deb package on my side
(e.g. configure reports no XComposite nor gphoto headers).

The bug has been mentioned by the OP of the 0.9.44 test result of Syberia2.
