Myst: Black/frozen graphic at the start of Myst flyby animation
|Reported by:||mgiuca||Owned by:|
Game: Myst Masterpiece Edition (GOG version, June 2018)
OS: Windows 10
Steps to reproduce:
- Start a new game.
- Watch the introduction where the book falls onto the ground.
- Click the book.
- Watch the small video of flying to the island and landing on the dock.
Note that when the book first opens, the panel is black for a few seconds. Then it is frozen for a few seconds on the water. After that, the video resumes as normal.
This is not a ScummVM issue; it is a problem with the data file QTW\INTRO\INTRO2.MOV. However, this news page tells us to report bugs here for issues with the Myst 25th Anniversary launch.
This has always been an issue with Myst Masterpiece edition since its 2000 release. However, it was not an issue with the original Myst game (at least in the 1996 Windows release). So it should be possible to fix this data file by splicing in the first few seconds of video from the original, un-remastered, Myst game. This isn't really something the ScummVM team can do, it's more of a question of updating the data files for the 25th Anniversary release.
