#1026 closed defect (duplicate)

LOOM: closing credits flicker

Reported by: SF/kpharris Owned by: Kirben
Priority: low Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Loom


This applies to version 0.5.0pre-cvs (2003-07-xx), which was downloaded this morning.

The closing credits for loom flicker instead of fading. I guess a better way to describe it is that it appears to be drawn, erased, redrawn and then faded.

It has been nearly 8 or 9 years since I last played through loom, but I don't remember the original SCUMM interpreter flashing like this. Attached is a savegame from the closing credit sequence.

Loading the game does show the distaff which did not appear when watching the credits initially.

I forgot to say that this was the win32 version. Sorry.

This is cosmetic and not a release critical bug. Lowering priority, removing RC tag.

Isn't this the same as bug #770042 ("LOOM: Some bits of dialogue are repeated")?

comment:5 by SF/kpharris, 21 years ago

Yes, this could be related. I tried his savegame and it is fairly similar (although I didn't notice it when playing through).
When I played through, I only noticed the problem at the end of the game, and I was thinking it could potentially have something to do with the fade-out routine.

Closing as duplicate of bug #770042, as it definately sounds like same issue.
