MOHAWK: MYST ME: Held pages look off in a few ages

Reported by: dafioram Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Mohawk
Keywords: original Cc:
Game: Myst

Description

myst me.

The behavior in scummvm is the same as the original engine.

Mechanical Age: The blue page has a heavy green tint
Stoneage: Both pages look like a checker board with their color and the color white. Most notable for the blue page. Limited palette?

More noticeable in scummvm because original resolution can be scaled.

This is a tricky issue. While we do try and patch bugs in the original engines where possible and practical, especially when game-breaking... Fixing up cosmetic or minor color variations when they occurred in the original is much more borderline i.e. fidelity to the original vs. improvement arguments.

I think we could maybe fix this by using the Cursor resources from one age for both to give consistency, but maybe they were changed for a reason i.e. poor contrast on the cards where the pages are found?

Overall, I would tend to WONTFIX, but will leave open for now in case any of the MOHAWK engine devs wants to take a look at this.

P.S. An in-universe explanation for this could be that different ages have different "Suns" and the color of objects does vary from that ;-)
