In the castle... Resting late at night will advance the clock, but - in the time dialog, rather than a sunrise - the moon will rise again. Despite appearances, the "Sleep until morning" option will not be available during faux night.

Walking to another room, then checking the time again, will correctly show the sun.

The original interpreter also does this.

Occurs in the floppy edition under ScummVM, and its original interpreter, too.

I don't know if the castle and Nikolai's house (#10776) share a common cause or if there are bugs in two places. They've got their own tickets in case they need to be fixed and closed independently.

Did some checking with Floppy edition under ScummVM. Now I think this one is indeed widespread enough to probably have a shared cause.

  • Castle
  • Nikolai's house (enter at night)
  • Inn's dining room
  • Shop (enter during day)
  • Cranium's hallway + lab
  • Adventurers' guild + thieves' guild
  • Monastery + basement

Exception: If you try this in the Burgomeister's office (enter during day), he will stand beside you for one REAL night. Then you'll die in the morning for being 'caught' as a burglar. So there's no problem there.

Interesting that Nikolai doesn't have a morning wake-up event to prevent this. He just sleeps indefinitely.

I merged the Nikolai ticket into this one.

  • global120 - Granular time, for a 3600 unit day (1 hour is 150 units).
  • global123 - Simplified time of day, the nth 3-hour span: 6,7,0,1,2,3,4,5. The 6th span is midnight aka "You are getting tired". Starts do get dark partway through 4. Light again at 0.
  • global122 - The nth day (1-based).
  • local3 - Influences the sun/moon x pos.
  • local4 - Influences the sun/moon y pos.
  • local5 - 1 for night, 0 for day.
  • timeIcons use View 938 for landscape, sky, sun/moon, with local5 indirectly offsetting their "loop" attribute.



script 7

(instance showTime of Code
	(properties)
	
	(method (init &tmp temp0 temp1 temp2)
# ??? - - - - -
		(= temp0 global122)
		(if (or (!= global123 6) (> global120 500))
			(++ temp0)
		)
# ??? - - - - -
		(if (>= (= temp2 global120) 2780)
			(= temp2 (- temp2 3600))
			(= local5 1)
		)
		(if (<= temp2 820)
			(= temp2 (+ temp2 1800))
			(= local5 1)
		)
		(= local3 (/ (= temp2 (- temp2 1800)) 16))
		(= local4 (Abs (/ temp2 48)))
		(= local3 (+ local3 81))
		(timePanel init: show: dispose:)
	)
)



That first if block and temp0 are useless.


(instance timePanel of PuzzleBar
	(properties
		state $0000
	)
	
	(method (init &tmp temp0 temp1)
		(super init: &rest)
		(= temp1 0)
		(if local5 (= temp1 3))

# Next come a bunch of timeIcons like this.
		(self
			add:
				((timeIcon new:)
					nsLeft: (+ local3 12)
					x: (+ local3 12)
					nsTop: (+ local4 6)
					y: (+ local4 6)
					cel: 0
					loop: (+ 2 temp1)
					setPri: 251
					init: self
					yourself:
				)
		)



showTime is exported, and showTime::init() is triggered by UI's hourglass button (iconTime) in script 20.

Once it discovers night, there's nothing setting local5 to 0 to make it day again. Except for room transitions. How those are involved is still mysterious. I couldn't catch "showTime::dispose" with a breakpoint.

Anyway, the correction should be a simple matter of rewriting the useless bit to reset local5.
