TITANIC: Yellow Fuse (spoiler)

Reported by: dafioram Owned by: dreammaster
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Titanic
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Starship Titanic

Description

In the current scummvm the yellow fuse being in or out determines the temperature of a certain something, I think this makes sense, but this is different from the original.

In the original game engine playing version v1.00.42 or v1.00.42c the yellow fuse in/out always produces a chicken of the right temperature because of this and because several other sources suggest that the fuse should be taken out before doing the chicken preparation I think we should match the behavior of the original.

I don't know why they suggest that the fuse should be taken out, since they don't explain themselves, but I guess they want to make sure the player doesn't change the switch state after setting it correctly.

Since it is very likely that players will be using one of these guides then this would be a worthwhile change. The sources that I found that suggests the fuse should be taken out are:

The top, 2nd, and 4rth google search hit and the only Gamefaq guide
the 3rd google hit, Universal Hint system guide
Official strategy guide

Sigh. I think you're right. Much as it was nice to fix an obvious original bug, it's too commonly suggested to remove the circuit breaker. And people will then get confused by the chicken starting off as cold. I'm going to disable it using a conditional block, so it can be easily re-enabled in the future if desired.
