QFG4: Talking to absent Burgomeister

Description

ScummVM 2.1.0git3770-g15306581ab (Oct 18 2018 04:27:32)
Windows 7 64bit
QFG4 CD (English)

When breaking into the Burgomeister's office at night... If you click MOUTH on the hero, you can still "Greet Burgomeister" and "Say Goodbye". The absent official will respond.

The generic, "No one seems to be listening," narration would be more appropriate. Or a burglary themed one regarding the need for quiet, if available.

Hi,

Thank you very much for all those QfG4 bug reports. They are very useful and hopefully we will be able to squash most if not all of them to make QfG4 properly playable.

It would be very helpful if we knew which bugs also happen when playing the floppy version. I guess most of them, but you never know. For those we would also need saved games for easy access, so if you happen to own the floppy version too, that would be the cherry on top.

Kind Regards

@Vhati: Thanks for the bug report. Could you try testing this with the original SCI interpreter to see if this occurs in the original as well?

comment:4 by Vhati, 12 months ago

The original interpreter also does this.

"Tell About Yourself" is another inappropriate option. Best to prevent that self-dialogue menu altogether.

Regarding burglary: Clicking MOUTH on the hero in Nikolai's room yields "No one seems to be listening." and no dialogue menu. At least it does in the original interpreter. I haven't checked in ScummVM. Point is: there's no special message there.
